Liberal Brains and Conservative Brains

Why do liberals and conservatives disagree about just about everything?

Is it possible we are simply two different species?

While I'll take the research described below with the requisite grain of salt, nonetheless, I wonder:
WASHINGTON — Everyone knows that liberals and conservatives butt heads when it comes to world views, but scientists have now shown that their brains are actually built differently.
Liberals have more gray matter in a part of the brain associated with understanding complexity, while the conservative brain is bigger in the section related to processing fear, said the study on Thursday in Current Biology.
