This was sent to me by a friend who is also a regular reader (thanks Bob!). It was originally comparing Republicans and Democrats. I feel using Conservative and Liberal is a little more accurate, because of the GOP establishment being so full of squishy RINOs, and there are (although rare) JFK type Democrats. I am pretty sure my regular readers know where they stand ideologically, so feel free to pass this along to that idiot lefty relative we all have.
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit
on, this is a great test!
If a Conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a Conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products
banned for everyone.
If a Conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a Conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how
to better his situation.
If a Liberal is down-and-out he wonders who is going
to take care of him.
If a Conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he
A Liberal demands 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 and religion silenced.
If a Conservative decides he needs health care, he goes
about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
If a Liberal decides he needs health care, he
demands that the rest of us pay for his.
If a Conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his
friends can have a good laugh.
The Liberal will demand an apology, then a retraction, and finally that
the author be fired or otherwise punished because he's "offended."
Somewhere around I have a "Conservative Test" I wrote a good ten years ago, but I can't find it at the moment. I wrote it because I used to work with a woman who was a professed life-long Democrat, as her whole family (that hailed from the Waterbury area) was. We used to have some great political discussions, because she was smart and articulate, not a rabid, screaming, insulting liberal. Most times we would end our discussions "agreeing to disagree" and that was it. But some times, we would discover that although she was a Democrat, she was actually more conservative. A couple of times, she was surprised to learn she agreed with the real facts about an issue, and not the blather from the legacy media talking heads on the nightly news.
