    If a liberal gets a dumb ass email forwarded to him he deletes it.
    If a conservative get the same email, he figures it must be true and posts it on a big penis website.

    Fuck that. I am a liberal with gun.

    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...

    I am a liberal who is a carnivore and herbivore. I know that vegans and vegetarians can never stop the meat industry.

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

    I am a liberal GBM. I don't care about obtaining RESPECT from anyone.

    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.

    That is bullshit.

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

    I am liberal...I don't demand that any talk show host be shut down. I can switch channels in a heart beat. I have even been known to switch off media big time.

    If a conservative is a nonbeliever, he doesn't go to church.
    A liberal nonbeliever wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
    (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course)

    That is bullshit. I am liberal. I don't go to church. But the church seems to find me. I don't go to them. I believe in separation of church and state. And freedom of and from religion. It is a constitutional right. I have a right to be free from practicing a religion. I also have a right to believe in what God du jour that is out there. I just don't have the right to mandate law based on a religious creed and its tenets though.

    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.

    Well, I am liberal. Every American is going to pay for their insurance and BE RESPONSIBLE for getting their insurance.

    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 am liberal. I am offended that you thought that I would be offended. I don't forward anything politically Conservative to my liberal friends. They know it is all bullshit.

    Haha no. Have you ever actually talked to a liberal? I've never met anyone who actually wants guns banned, and I spend most of my time in Seattle and Portland.

    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.... See More

    Again, haha no. The only people with the "ban-all-meat" stance are eco-terrorist-types, and nobody likes them.

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


    How dare them damn homos wanna get married!

    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.


    Again, I've never met anyone with this sort of attitude.

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


    Both sides are equally prone to be whiny bitches about stuff they don't like.

    If a conservative is a nonbeliever, he doesn't go to church.
    A liberal nonbeliever wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
    (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course)


    The Establishment Clause prohibits the establishment of any official state religion, and court decisions have extended this to protect against implicit endorsement of religious views. "Under God" is an inherent endorsement of monotheism, as is "In God We Trust." I really don't mind religion, on a few conditions. 1) Don't use your religion to justify hate. 2) Don't use your religion to justify scientific ignorance. 3) Don't preach to me. In a country set up with a secular government, I'd classify the "Under God," etc as being in violation of that, as anything issued from the government should maintain a secular stance by not mentioning or implicitly endorsing any type of religion.

    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.


    Please see the other threads on this board explaining the difficulties of getting healthcare.

    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'd delete because it's infantile and painfully oversimplified. Fuck forwarded emails.

    However, I must concede, successful troll is successful.

    Where is the original? I'm sure it's out there somewhere on the net. Please feel free to express your own thoughts instead of just forwarding onto us what others have written.

    Coupled comparison number 2 says "See more".
    thankfully there isn't listed any "more"

    Coupled comparison number 6 what exactly is a foreign religion?
    Last time I looked Jesus never walked outside of Israel. Are you saying we should all go to back to worshipping the nature around us like the American Indians did/do ?

    If a conservative wants a large family he demands tax credits for each kid.
    If a liberal wants a large family he'll look at how many kids he has already.

    If a conservative is against anal sex he demands it to be banned.
    If a liberal is against anal sex he doesn't engage in it.

    If a conservative doesn't want to see a flag burned he demands it be banned by an Amendment to the Constitution.
    If a liberal doesn't want to see a flag burned he doesn't go to places where it might happen.

    If a conservative is against abortion he demands it to be banned.
    If a liberal is against abortion he just doesn't have one.
    (He is used deliberately since all the other comparison couplets are HE)

    Political forwarded emails get moved to trash faster than they get forwarded on.

    Well, according to the results thus far it's probably valid to say most LPSG-ers think conntom is a loser -- whether he's conservative or liberal.

    I am more on the liberal side, but there's enough truth in it to be humorous.

    I've decided that if you thought this was clever or accurate, you're both behind the times on conservative chainmails, and also very very ignorant.

    For the record I did not write that as was asked/mentioned. I did however find much of it seemingly true from my vantage point.

    For those who resort to name calling, well, shame on you.

    For the Liberal who exercises his right to own firearms - good for you. I applaud you, sir.

    Here, I corrected this for you:


    If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a liberal doesn't like criminals having unlimited access to guns, he wants reasonable restrictions on those guns.

    If a conservative does like guns, he insists that any restrictions on the use of exceedingly dangerous weaponry are "banning." If a liberal likes guns, he'll follow the safety-conscious restrictions, get the appropriate licenses, and buy them.

    If a conservative is a vegetarian, he tries to get meats banned or meat selling restaurants closed down. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products correctly labeled and meat factories to have animal cruelty restrictions.

    If a conservative is homosexual, he suffers psychological repression and corresponding health issues. If a liberal is homosexual, he demands to be granted human rights.

    If a conservative is not a homosexual, he demands that homosexuals be treated like inhuman vermin. If a liberal is not a homosexual, he still demands that they be granted human rights.

    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation by knocking those less fortunate down. A liberal strives to use the available resources to better himself.

    If a conservative is well to do, he thinks about how to keep those less fortunate at his feet while he basks in his wealth. A liberal who is well to do tries to find fair ways to help others, who are talented and motivated, find ways to happiness, too.

    If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he sets up a slander campaign against them or out and out lies about what they say in order to get them down. Liberals ask if there are fair restrictions (such as truth laws in the press), and if not, tries to get them in place; otherwise he changes the channels and ignores them.

    If a conservative is a believer or non-believer, he attacks anyone who has any religious belief that is different. A liberal believer or non-believer seeks to find fair position and representation for all beliefs and non-beliefs, favoring none.

    If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal thinks of those who are dying or suffering because they are unable to acquire it, and tries to work together with them so everyone can live healthy.

    If a conservative has health care, he insists that others die or suffer greatly so he can have shorter wait times.A liberal thinks of those who are dying or suffering because they are unable to acquire it, and tries to share what they have so those less fortunate might be healthy.

    If a conservative reads this, he'll say it's "leftist" and get angry that someone else sees things differently and will delete it. A liberal will smile and hope their conservative friends may understand.


    All better!
