Default Which side of the fence?

Received this in an email:

Which side of the fence

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
Lot of truth here:

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.
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 and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)


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 the rest of us pay for his.


If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

I could create the same sort of list about the things conservatism doesn't like that I find silly, and if I did so, someone would get mad at me. I'm not exactly angry, just bemused that anyone thinks this a good honest look at politics.

Please provide said list. Otherwise, start your movement to banish the creation of any such list that makes fun of your political orientation.

I don't know. The point of the story, and the main argument between the two groups is that conservatives feel that how you live your life should be up to you, and liberals feel that how you live your life is up to them. Problem is that right now the majority of the government and about 90% of the media feels the same as the liberals.

What We need to do is get rid of all the people in office on both sides and put real people in their place .

Then make some term limits and maybe an age limit. It seems like most are to old and out of touch.

This is How it should read.

If a conservative likes guns, he tries to buy as many as he can.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.


If a conservative isn't a vegetarian, he mocks anyone who is a vegetarian.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.


If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life out of fear.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.


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


If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. and bitches to his wife
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.


If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. but tells everyone else to go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)


If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.

Replaced the word conservative with Libertarian and it would be more accurate.
