Conservative Versus Liberal

The following post is a shared from email with my comments at the end. I'm saving my brain cells.

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants 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 a homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is a 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 turns the channel.
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 needs health care, he goes about shopping for it or may choose a job that provides it.
If a liberal needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs, and is embarrassed..
If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor, and then sues.

A conservative may try to persuade you to see his or her point of view,
but a liberal will try to force you with his or her imposed position.

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 hate to say this, but I agree. Liberals are screaming to shut down Fox news, forcing OBAMA Care on the nation, insisting that God be removed from everything, and my favorite...trying to legislate that everyone respect Homosexuals.

You can't pass laws that force people to accept something they don't understand. Personally, I'm not homophobic, but just as I don't force people to view romantic exchanges between my husband and I, I would prefer not to be subjected to seeing them between same sex couples--or any couples. Take it behind closed doors.

I'm a firm believer that until you walk a mile in someone's shoes, you can't understand what they face. NEVER are we mortals in a position to judge anyone. That's between each individual and his maker. Remember, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Some people should never consider picking up so much as a pebble.

Our whole system has reverted to a war between left and right. Shouldn't laws be based on logic and what's best for all concerned rather than following a party lead? Honestly, name calling, finger pointing...none of that negative behavior does anything more than make our politicians look like the asses they've become. I say this not in judgement, but as someone who listens to the news, watches Fox, where you hear the truth without the sugar coating,and witnesses the reported behavior of elected officials who work harder to pad their own pockets and gain respect with special interest groups than they do for the people who put them in office. So now I ask you...who's the dope! Can't we all just play nice and work to clean up this giant mess we're in?
