If a Conservative doesn't like guns, they won't buy one. If a Liberal doesn't like guns, they want all guns outlawed.

If a Conservative is a vegetarian, they won't eat meat. If a Liberal is a vegetarian, they want 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 switches channels. If a Liberal doesn’t like a talk show host, he demands the mob dox the host and disrupt their free speech.

If a Conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. If a Liberal is a non-believer, he 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 is unhappy with an election, he grumbles and goes to work the next day. If a Liberal is unhappy with an election, he burns down a Starbucks, throws rocks at cops and takes two-weeks off for therapy.

If a Conservative reads this, he'll show it so his friends can have a good laugh. If a Liberal reads this, he will try to sue you or shut you down, because he's "offended."

Who will be the first to get the last bullet-point "I'm offended over XYZ" award?

Well,

A pretty good description of what we have seen the last 20 years. I loved that last one. So true.

I'm offended you only used the "He/Him" pronouns for gender, further propagating the patriarchy agenda!

Ain't that the truth!

A good laugh indeed. They always make it seem like its one side opposing the other, when in reality its one side going about their lives and the other trying to constantly inflict their will on us

Offended? Meh. Shocked that y'all have such a distorted view of yourselves and others? Not anymore.
Amazed that you all find new ways to be victimy drama-queens over and over about the same stuff while questing for confirmation bias?
Amusing, to say the least.

So, in summation, having a good laugh over your thread... again.

This is completely untrue. And this type of bigot speak is symptomatic of a simple mind.

Everyone's actions, speech and intentions, regardless of political leaning, are different.

You are virtue signaling for a group (and now I'll do the same thing) that has no virtue.

maybe you believe that but do you actually think it could happen.......when is the last time an amendment was changed, only once an amendment was enacted to repeal another way back in 1933 the 21st amendment amended the 18th amendment which had instituted "prohibition"

trying to change an amendment is extremely difficult....

If a Conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a Liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect. did you type that with a straight face?????

this link www.newnownext.com... yeah these Republicans (the party of FAMILY VALUES) all publicly denounced homosexuality were all caught and brought down by gay sex scandals

Wouldn't a liberal (using the definition of someone who is broad minded, open, individualistic, tolerant and accepting) not give a damn?

And wouldn't someone who is conservative be traditionalist, corporate, unbending and legalistic?

liberal - The Free Dictionary

You see, the right-wing, ideologically, are not conservative in the true definition of the word. The left-wing, ideologically are not liberal in the true definition of the word.

The political labels are applied in both cases to try and make the extremist positions of both ideologies sound reasonable and acceptable to the vast majority who are neither right or left wing.

The centrists are both liberal and conservative (in the true definition of the words) at the same time.

I didn't identify myself as one label or another.
I favor liberal democracy within this democratic republic.

I don't like the wording of the 2nd Amendment, but what the heck?
"... the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
The people includes people labeled conservative as well as people labelled liberal; no label required.

But see, for all practical purposes, convicted felons have those rights infringed. The NRA is probably not pushing to allow prisoners to go fully armed. So people compromise.



these Republicans (the party of FAMILY VALUES) all publicly denounced homosexuality were all caught and brought down by gay sex scandals

I suppose those Republicans named in the article can be labelled hypocrites or something of the sort. Worse than hypocrites actually.

I don't agree with limiting anyone's gun rights. If they're breaking the law, the other armed citizens will put a stop to it sooner or later. Given the number of ways someone can become a "felon" (thanks to the worthless congress writing 1,003,523,521 laws) I don't think its right at all

I also don't understand why some feel the need to legislate homosexuality, etc. It is what it is. Whether you agree with it or disagree with it, people have a right to do what makes them happy and love who they want to love. Its not my business or my place to say its right or wrong, its just my job to accept them for who they are and move on

Its also your right to be petty and not associate with someone over their sexual orientation if you so choose. I wouldn't, personally, Several of my very close friends and the friends of my children are gays or lesbians. They also happen to be very good people.

Yes yes chronoaut, I always misuse the word liberal. In fact I am NOTORIOUS for misusing the word liberal and conflating it with the reactionary far left idioacy we see in this country.

FWIW, I apologize for slandering actual liberals by associating them with this madness
