            Very interesting, but I can't help being a bit sarcastic in saying
    there's very little ideologically different between the Republicans and
    Democrats, and I didn't think there were any left-wing people in America
    (apart from Noam Chomsky and Warren Beatty) so maybe other factors account
    for these differences. (Maybe the Republicans are all feeling increasingly
    guilty about voting for Bush?)

            The study clearly needs to spread out and include Greens and Militia
    types for example, to see if the pattern persists. I would in fact expect
    the more ideological and radical people, on both left and right, to have
    more nightmares, either through persistent stress over the state of the
    world and/or paranoia about the state of the world.
