Sent to me by a good friend.
Pretty much says it all.....

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, then 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 lives his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he loudly demands legislated respect.

If a black man or Hispanic is conservative, he sees himself 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 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.
A liberal demands that his neighbors pay for his.

  1. Leftists around here love to claim that anyone voting Conservative (that is, for the Conservative Party of Canada) is "acting against their own best interests". What all this boils down to is that these folks think they know what's in my best interest.

    (Also, I know it's a lost cause, but I wish people would quit using "liberal" to mean "paternalistic statist". One of these days I'd like to be able to call myself a liberal, and have people think of Thomas Paine rather than Michael Moore.)

  2. Good point, Matt. I think "liberal" has lost its original meaning.

  3. I didn't realize it when I first posted, but the federal Liberals in Canada aren't "liberal" (in the proper sense), and the federal Conservatives aren't "conservative". That would be amusing if I didn't live here.

    (Also "Matt", above -- for some reason my Blogger profile is locked.)

  5. Yes, and the rifle behind every blade of grass should be an automatic assault rifle loaded with armor peircing rounds in case the invader or JBT is wearing body armor.

  6. Enjoyed those---short and to the point. Conservatives are individualist and independent while liberal seek the protection of the herd. Mountain lion and deer.
