-You believe John Ashcroft poses a greater danger to America than Osama bin Laden
-You think President Bush lied to the nation but his predecessor did not.
-You believe President Bush is too dumb to be President and Arnold Schwarzenegger is too dumb to be Governor of California, but the Dixie Chicks, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, Barbra Streisand, Eddie Vedder and Jeanine Garofalo are qualified to discourse at length on foreign policy.
-You believe all conservatives are racist, but do not think minorities can ever succeed without Affirmative Action.
-You can't decide which is worse: the Patriot Act or the Patriot Missile.
-You believe Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il, and Yasser Arafat were fairly and democratically elected, but President Bush was not.
-You root for prisoners when they escape from our oppressive prisons, but oppose allowing poor children to escape from failing public schools.
-You support every kind of "diversity" on campus, except political orientation.
-You support banning the smoking of tobacco and legalizing marijuana.
-You are enraged by the so-called mistreatment of Muslim prisoners (who have gained weight while dining on their specially prepared Koran-approved meals) at Guantanamo Bay, but believe the world should have stood idly by while Saddam Hussein filled mass graves.
-You have found where the right to an abortion is written in the Constitution but cannot find where the Constitution provides for a right to keep and bear arms.
-You support campus speech codes that ban pick-up lines and amorous gazes, but never spoke out against President Clinton's physical sexual harassment in the White House.
-You applauded Jimmy Carter for talking about human rights in foreign policy but opposed George W. Bush for doing something about human rights.
-You believe that trial lawyers taking 33 to 40 percent of a plaintiff's recovery in lawsuits is just about right, but the federal government taking this amount of our income in taxes is not nearly enough.
-You believe the former Governor of a New England state with 608,827 people is more than adequately experienced to be President in 2004, but the Governor of a Southwestern state with 21,325,018 people was completely unprepared in 2000.
-You agree with Toni Morrison that President Clinton was "the first black President," but didn't criticize Al Sharpton for recently labeling President Bush a "gang leader."
-You believe we could get more truth out of the Pentagon if only Don Rumsfeld were replaced by Mohammed Al-Sahhaf.
-You believe evangelical Christians are destroying America but don't feel threatened by the radical Wahabbi sect of Islam.
-When it comes to violent crime, you believe in hating the crime but loving the criminal.
-You support unlimited appeals for convicted criminals, but believe it is undemocratic for Californians to reverse their earlier mistake of electing Gray Davis.
-You believe U.S. exports of genetically modified foods pose a greater threat to African nations than corrupt dictators like Zimbabwe's Mugabe.
-You believe welfare is a fundamental human right and workfare is a human rights violation.
-You believe religion is a scourge on our society, but becoming one with Mother Nature by merging with the universal consciousness and harmonizing with lunar reverberations will save us.
-You believe President Bush is an environmental criminal for poisoning the water with arsenic, but have never complained about Saddam Hussein's devastating Iraq and Kuwait's environment by setting intentional oil well fires and committing genocide against the Marsh Arabs by draining their wetlands.
-Your car sports the bumper sticker saying that "it will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need and the military has to hold bake sales," but oppose allowing the U.S. military to volunteer recruitment tables on college campuses because of their "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
If the above has successfully profiled you, congratulations! You have won a one-way ticket to Paris aboard the massive cruise ship, "The U.S.S.R. Michael Moore." Your ticket will be held at the nearest Dennis Kucinich for President rally. Matricular consular ID cards issued by foreign governments will be gladly accepted as identification.

IT'S IN THE BREAKING NEWS SIDEBAR
Good stuff. I didn't quite get that one though. Which one is worse?
(in a nice way, I mean.)
23). Everyone else must support your right to breed and not have a say on how much is enough.
24). Hard-work is a dirty word used by insensitive people.
25). Saying no to taxes is a sin, but saying no to sin is intrusive.
26). Voting is only fair in communist countries where there are only one party and one candidate, but recalls are against the free-will of the people.
27). Welfare is a right of the poor, accountability is only for the evil rich.
28). The Democrats are for the working man, and the Republicans are for the rich.
29). Only school-teachers have the right to teach children about sex-education.
30). Abstinence is for the military budget.
31). Taxes are good for the economy.
32). Marriage is only good when it is not between a man and a woman.
33). Elections are only fair when a democrat wins, and are fixed or broken whenever anyone else wins.
34). Prosperity comes from the government and not from a free-market economy.
35). Free speach is okay as long as it is not from a conservative or a Christian.
36). Hate speach is telling the truth about any liberal.
And what about China? If the quantity of murder is the criteria, China is far worse than Saddam.
If the quantity of murder is a criteria, what about abortion in the USA? 30-40 million murdered innocent, helpless babies. Judgement shall come to the USA for these murders.
Invading Iraq was not a just cause when compared with the atrocities in China and the USA. Invading Iraq was a neo-cons dream come true. And neo-cons don't care about aborted babies. They only care about dollars and power.
The list posted above is nothing short of propaganda barf.

I agree that there is a blight upon this country because of the abortion issue, and this cannot be changed in a single try. But people's hearts must be changed one at a time, over time, and not in one fell swoop. The money and power behind the abortion issue is also an ideologue tennant of the Left, and as such, is going to be a long and bitter struggle to irradicate as was the Cold War.
One cannot be a single issue candidate or citizen when in the market-place of ideas, though in a perfect world such could be the case. Winning the hearts and minds of people mucy come from a life of examples for them to follow, not a single mantra from a mountain top. Child ponography and exploitation is just as evil as any abortion, though these victims seldom die from its effects.
Please try and see that there is more to live for and to work toward than what single evil there is in what is wrong with this country. People will eventually follow what is right if they are presented with all of the facts of its effects on society. You must remember that there is a lot or power and money behind this abortion issue, and thus political interest.
Rejoice in small increases and successes. The sun will rise tomorrow unless The End Of Days and The Lord of Righteousness decides to come before then. Until then, keep the faith and overcome one heart at a time.
