Liberals, Conservatives/Libertarians.

I have acquired a new blog friend Kevin at Toast, with a liberal amount of butter,

In his latest blog post, Info From The Inbox on an email received by him, he has reproduced a fascinating comparison between American Liberals and Conservatives. Although in India they are not known by these nomenclatures, we do have both breed and the differences are as applicable here as they are in the USA. Here it is:

“This is a fairly concise representation of the difference between America’s liberals and conservatives. If you replaced ‘conservative’ with ‘libertarian’, it would also be true. Man, I really dislike liberalism/progressivism.

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
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. (Of course this only applies to Christian Religions.)

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.

They forgot to add that a conservative/libertarian wouldn’t buy into the non-scientific belief that the globe is warming due to man’s actions, as opposed to the more gullible liberal/progressive, but still, all in all, it’s a pretty good email!”
