    1. The right's perennial sense of victimhood. They ALWAYS cast themselves as underdogs, outsiders, put-upon, etc. Wins more hearts that way. Because Americans love underdog heroes.

    2. They're always stuck on the bottom of Maslow's pyramid. So worried about mere survival, to the exclusion of what makes life truly worth living! I guess a meaningful, exciting, human life is only for those who are wealthy, or had it gifted to them by God, or both.

    3. The conservative mindset in its current form doesn't deserve to survive. Who and what does it benefit? Only those lucky enough to be part of an inner circle of friends and family, and a set of blinkered social instincts that short-sightedly focus on our feeling comfortable at all costs. The future belongs to those brave enough to mix with all walks of life... not the ideologically pure and socially hunkered down.
