Self expression

bumper stickersI have always wondered why liberals are more liberal with their bumper stickers than conservatives are.

Any thoughts?

Dave hates the idea of bumper stickers because they make they car look trashy. I like, one or two, to express myself. We have an apple stick - discreet - on the side and feminists for life. It says enough.

I'm not sure I ever noticed. What I tend to notice are the ones that offend me--conservative or liberal. The rest are just noise. Sometimes I notice the funny ones, too.

Maybe liberals tend to be environmentalists, thus drive economy cars for longer, so they don't mind the stickers on the unshiny, not-so-new car. But that would be a pretty stereotyped assumption on my part. :)

Or maybe they're just college students. Heh. Ryan's got a whole load on his car.

I hate all bumper stickers. If you have an opinion, talk to me personally. I do autobody and paint, and bumper stickers are very hard to get off without ruining the paint. The liberal vs. conservative bumper stickers might depend on where you live. I see 100 conservative bumper stickers to each liberal one. Maybe the liberals are just afrain of the pro gun crowd.
