Face it: losers like socialism because it allows them access to money and goods that they would not be able to acquire through their own powers. So it should surprise nobody that an academic study finds that poor upper body strength in males correlates with socialist views. Amanda Prestigiacomo writes at the Daily Wire:
An academic study from researchers at Brunel University London assessed 171 men, looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference, along with their views on redistribution of wealth and income inequality. The study, published in the Evolution and Human Behavior journal, found that weaker men were more likely to favor socialist policies than stronger men.
The good professor who conducted this study, Dr. Michael Price, hypothesizes that this is based on evolutionary psychology:
"This is about our Stone Age brains, in a modern society," said Dr. Price. "Our minds evolved in environments where strength was a big determinant of success. If you find yourself in a body not threatened by other males, if you feel you can win competitions for status, then maybe you start thinking inequality is pretty good."
But, thankfully, he performed a check to see if another variable might account for the observed differences:
Taking his assessment one step further, Price wanted to factor in gym time to see if he could determine the relationship flow between strength and socialistic leanings. Are men who are naturally strong more inclined to hold capitalistic views, or are men with capitalistic views driven to go to the gym?
"When Dr Price factored in time spent in the gym some, but not all, of the link disappeared," notes The Times, suggesting there may be something to men with capitalistic views hitting the gym.

That’s no man, baby!
TO Lindsay Graham’s credit, He served in the United States Air Force from 1982 to 1988 and served as a Guardsman first in the South Carolina Air National Guard then in the Air Force Reserves, attaining the rank of colonel.
Headline actually me laugh out loud.
I haven’t always been physically weak but old age set in, that’s one reason I carry a gun. If that causes me to turn liberal, I’d use it on myself.
Yeah, well, more than I ever did perhaps...
Some liberals are muscular. Hollywood men, etc.
However, the weenie types are the socialists, anarchists, etc.
But I was struck by that picture. I had to look at it twice and my impression remains - He has just about the most feminine face I've ever seen on a man.
I mean, throw a wig on it and he's softer looking than most of the prominent Lib women.
Counterpoint that photo with Congressthing DeLauro -
(No it's not Keith Richards in drag.)
That’s why we call them pussies.
The Pussification Of The Western Male
By Kim du Toit
We have become a nation of women.
It wasnt always this way, of course. There was a time when men put their signatures to a document, knowing full well that this single act would result in their execution if captured, and in the forfeiture of their property to the State. Their wives and children would be turned out by the soldiers, and their farms and businesses most probably given to someone who didnt sign the document.
There was a time when men went to their certain death, with expressions like You all can go to hell. Im going to Texas. (Davy Crockett, to the House of Representatives, before going to the Alamo.)
There was a time when men went to war, sometimes against their own families, so that other men could be free. And there was a time when men went to war because we recognized evil when we saw it, and knew that it had to be stamped out.
There was even a time when a President of the United States threatened to punch a man in the face and kick him in the balls, because the man had the temerity to say bad things about the Presidents daughters singing.
Were not like that anymore.
Now, little boys in grade school are suspended for playing cowboys and Indians, cops and crooks, and all the other familiar variations of good guy vs. bad guy that helped them learn, at an early age, what it was like to have decent men hunt you down, because you were a lawbreaker.
Now, men are taught that violence is badthat when a thief breaks into your house, or threatens you in the street, that the proper way to deal with this is to give him what he wants, instead of taking a horsewhip to the rascal or shooting him dead where he stands.
Now, mens fashion includes not a man dressed in a three-piece suit, but a tight sweater worn by a man with breasts.
Now, warning labels are indelibly etched into gun barrels, as though men have somehow forgotten that guns are dangerous things.
Now, men are given Ritalin as little boys, so that their natural aggressiveness, curiosity and restlessness can be controlled, instead of nurtured and directed.

This explains a lot. Feminized men, faggots and the like look to the state to protect them.
This study was conducted by the Institute of Truisms and Obviousness.
The really funny thing about that gif
is the way he arches his back and bobs
his head - as if he had 50 pounders in
each hand instead of those paperweights.
