If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a progressive doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed. If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat. If a progressive is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone. If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a progressive is homosexual, he demands legislated respect. If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A progressive wonders who is going to take care of him. If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. Progressives demand that those they don't like be shut down. If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A progressive 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 progressive 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 progressive won't laugh or pass it on. Sometimes truth hurts to much.
