Abstract

Russian Abstract: В СМИ со ссылками на научные данные приводятся утверждения о зависимости консерваторов от правительственных социальных программ, оплаченных налогами собранными с производительных и щедрых либералов. В данной записке показана фактическая несостоятельность подобного утверждения, смысл которого – политические нужды, а не вклад в научную дискуссию.

English Abstract: Mass media often asserts the conservative voter is generally socially dependent and eventually his incomes are provided by tax dollar paid by industrious liberal voters. Some people affiliated with scientific activities provide their credential to support this allegation. The paper provide references proving factual unfoundedness of above mentioned statement. The latter belongs to the politics, not to the scientific discussion.
