    Dems More Fearful Of Virus...

    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    It's kind of weird though how this was sort of in reverse right after 911.

    Are you referring to the Patriot Act? That has never been popular among conservatives. On the other hand, liberals were recently begging Trump, a man they think is basically Hitler, to rule the country like a dictator under the premise that it would stop them from getting sick.

    I'm looking for poll numbers ("fear about terrorism" polls post 911 between the party lines) because I basically could have been talking out of my behind. Will get back to you if I find anything.

    People have a tendency to get things out of proportion. It is natural to fear the unknown and over react if we believe the boogeyman is going to get us.

    It is also natural for the media to hype or exaggerate things to attract an audience, and thus satisfy their sponsors.

    Democrats are more inclined to follow the media and buy into the hype. The earth is overheating and we're all going to die, the ozone hole will grow until we all have cancer, an asteroid is going to hit us, Asian hornets are going to murder us, blah blah blah. This pandemic is bad, yes, but not worth screaming and running around in circles over. History will look back one day and ask why there were so many snowflakes during this era.
