•If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one. •If a liberal doesn't like guns, he feels that no one should have one -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat. •If a liberal is, he wants to ban all meat products for everyone. -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy. •A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good. -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. •If a liberal is homosexual, he loudly demands legislated “respect.” -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a black man or Hispanic man is conservative, they see themselves as independently successful. •Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection. -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. •A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him. -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels. •Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down. -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church. •A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God or religion silenced -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it or he turns into a liberal. •A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his. -------------------------------------------------------------------

•If a conservative decides Obama is a totally ineffective socialist, then the conservative is a racist. •A liberal thinks he will mature into the job, in another 7 years.

-If a conservative believes in a cause, he will spend his own money to support it and he will live the principles of said cause.

-If a liberal believes in a cause, he will try to spend other people’s money to support it and he will only live the principles of said cause if legislation is enacted forcing everyone to live it.

Because ‘he’ and ‘his’ are both universally recognized short-hand. Unless you’re a liberal, then it’s an intentional misogynistic attack on all women everywhere.

Conservatives demonstrate compassion by helping people. Liberals demonstrate compassion by stealing your money and letting a little of it trickle out to those in need of help.

Conservatives demonstratre tolerance by being tolerant. Liberals demonstrate tolerance by trying to shut down anyone who disagrees with them.

Many iterations of this posting around but I believe it fits here as well...

What It Takes to be a Liberal Democrat

1) You have to believe the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of funding.

2) You have to be against capital punishment, but for abortion on demand, in short you support protecting the guilty and killing the innocent.

3) You have to believe that the same public school teacher who can't teach 4th graders how to read is qualified to teach those same kids about sex.

4) You have to believe that trial lawyers are selfless heroes and doctors are overpaid.

5) You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans are more of a threat than nuclear weapons in the hands of the Red Chinese.

6) You have to believe that global temperatures is not affected by cyclical, documented changes in the Sun, but is really affected by SUVs.

7) You have to believe that gender roles are artificial but being gay is natural.

8)You have to believe that businesses create oppression and governments create prosperity.

9) You have to believe that hunters don't care about nature but animal rights activists who've never been outside Seattle do.

10) You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

11) You have to believe there was no art before federal funding.

12) You have to believe the military, not corrupt politicians start all wars.

13) You have to believe the free market that gives us 500+ channels of entertainment can't deliver the quality that PBS does.

14) You have to believe the NRA is evil, because it stands up for the Constitution, while the ACLU is good, because they attempt to create a new Constitution out of thin air.

15) You have to believe that taxes are too low but ATM fees are too high.

16) You have to believe that Harriet Tubman, Cesar Chavez and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Dolly Madison or Thomas Edison.

17) You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas and set-asides aren't.

18) You have to believe that second-hand smoke is more dangerous than HIV.

19) You have to believe Hilary Clinton (update: Michelle Obama) is really a lady and Rosie O'Donnell is really funny.

20) You have to believe that conservatives are racists, but that black people couldn't make it without your help.

21) You have to believe the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried is because the right people haven't been in charge.
