I don't think I've ever seen the differences explained any better....
If a conservative doesn’t like guns, they don’t buy one. If a liberal doesn’t like guns, then no one should have one.
If a conservative is a vegetarian, they don’t eat meat. If a liberal is, they want 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, they quietly enjoy their life. If a liberal is homosexual, they loudly demand legislated respect.
If a black man or Hispanic is conservative, they see themselves 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 and demands the government pay him for being unemployed.
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 pray or go to church. A liberal wants all churches and prayers 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 the federal government force his neighbors pay for his.
If a conservative woman has an unwanted pregnancy, whether married or unmarried, she takes personal responsibility and gives birth. If a liberal woman has an unwanted prenancy, she wants to abort the innocent baby for her mistake, and demand that others pay for it.
If a conservative reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can see the difference. A liberal will demand that this blog be removed because he’s “offended”.
