A fundamental difference between conservatives and normal people (moderates and liberals) is that while normal people tend to understand that evidence matters and will, sometimes grudgingly, accept where it points.
Conservative on the other hand tend to go with their gut. Here's a perfect example from Eric Rush.
"I know it’s typical for those on the political left to demand peer-reviewed studies, videotape and signed affidavits proving the assertions some of us make concerning the machinations of the Obama administration and socialist encroachment at large..."
Well, yeah, because unsupported assertions are, well, worthless.
"... but we all are aware by now that this is a diversion."
No, it's not, it's because unsupported assertions are, well, WORTHLESS you moron!
Rush among others throw out a constant stream of allegations, assertions, surmises and speculations with absolutely nothing to back them up. You can easily spot them by the liberal use of the words "could," "may," and "possible."
