"90 percent of Democratic voters admit to be or have been for a year or longer on a regime of antidepressants vs only 40 percent of Repubican voters."

Interesting, could you link your source. I can believe it, but I'd like to see the study.

90 percent of statistics are made up on the spot.

Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

Sounds like nonsense.

There is this study of psychiatric drug use from 2013:
"Overall, 16.7 percent of 242 million U.S. adults reported filling one or more prescriptions for psychiatric drugs in 2013,” they wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association’s JAMA Internal Medicine.
Twelve percent said they took antidepressants; 8.3 percent took anxiety drugs, sedatives or sleeping pills and 1.6 percent took antipsychotic medication.

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-n ... gs-n695141

12% of 242 million is 29 million using antidepressants

30% of Americans claim to be Democrats which is 72.6 million Democrats

Therefore even if only Democrats used antidepressants, that would still mean that only 29 million of 72.6 million are on antidepressants, which is 40% of Democrats
