Conservative vs. Liberal

Found the following at GazeToTheRight. He doesn't know where he found it, so I'm giving credit to him, for now.
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”.

Ain't it the truth!

The conservative in that story sounds more like a libertarian, and I think the Real World contains lots of similar examples of conservatives wanting to use government power to bad certain morally-objectionable things like porn shops.

if a conservative sees a homeless begger, he won't give money on the grounds of suspected drug use
a liberal would want to raise taxes for a government assistance program,
while a libertarian might give money just to help the poor sap avoid further misery and in hopes of enabling him to make a more enlightened future choice

To the other Anon:

You're conflating "Conservative" with "Republican."

Not all Republicans are conservatives, and not all conservatives are Republican.
