A friend sent me an email yesterday with some interesting insights to the differences between conservatives and liberals.  I have copied it below.


Conservative vs. Liberal

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 enjoys 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.  His liberal counterpart sees himself as a victim 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 all churches to be 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.

I’m not sure that all the points are good ones, but, I think this sheds some light on the direction a liberal administration is taking our country.  It is worth thinking about.  There is a good summary of the differences between liberals and conservatives that is a bit more serious here.
