There are obvious correlations to liberals and conservatives in this article, which reviews a book about authoritarian tendencies among Americans. It's interesting that the least worldly, least educated, and most religious are mostly likely to be the most narrow minded, fearful, and intolerant. Imagine growing up on a farm in Wyoming and being afraid of the chaos in the outside world. It's the type of ignorance that the right-wing has banked on for decades.
"... authoritarian traits ... have been connected to negative racist stereotyping, a belief in biblical inerrancy, a preference for simple rather than complex problem-solving, and low levels of political information."
"maximum authoritarian' types show much lower support for gay marriage and gay adoption (19 percent, 28 percent) than do "minimum authoritarians" (71 percent, 89 percent). Maximums are three times more likely than minimums to support the government use of wiretaps without a warrant in the war on terror (60 percent to 19 percent), and four times more likely to say it is unacceptable to criticize the president about fighting terrorism (33 percent to 8 percent)."

A lot of this has to do with intelligence. Unfortunately, over time the IQ of society goes down as the educated/intelligent, make only half as many babies as other people do...generation after generation.
