    As our friend Editec perused in a discussion of liberals and conservatives,

    “Few of us can be easily described by a single word.

    ESPECIALLY when the word no longer has a recognizable meaning that we can agree upon.”

    So true.

    When each side defines the others’ title, the definition is, not surprisingly, unacceptable…but if you agree with most or all of this list, you could be a liberal.

    1. Choosing paper over plastic is a way to save the environment.
    2. Senator Joseph McCarthy almost singlehandedly ruined America.
    3. Gore won.
    4. The best days of the United States are behind her.
    5. J. Edgar Hoover was a cross-dresser.
    6. Global warming is largely due to human beings.
    7. FDR’s policies took us out of the Depression
    8. Raising taxes increases revenue
    9. Cheney and Libby ‘outed’ Valerie Plame.
    10. The right has more of a propensity toward violence than the left.


    And, it would be interesting to see your list that defines conservatives…just restrain your language.

    You forgot:

    11. You know what's in the best interests of people you don't even know, more so than they do.

    1. Choosing paper over plastic is a way to save the environment.-- Plainly, a silly notion.
    2. Senator Joseph McCarthy almost singlehandedly ruined America.-- Plainly, a silly notion.
    3. Gore won. Well, actually -- the old fraud DID get more of the popular vote ... but still. He LOST! :D (Thank GOD!)
    4. The best days of the United States are behind her. -- Plainly, a silly notion.
    5. J. Edgar Hoover was a cross-dresser. Hm. I do believe he did like to wear women's clothing. I sure hope that doesn't make me a lib.
    6. Global warming is largely due to human beings.-- Plainly, a silly notion.
    7. FDR’s policies took us out of the Depression-- Plainly, a silly notion.
    8. Raising taxes increases revenue-- Plainly, a silly notion.
    9. Cheney and Libby ‘outed’ Valerie Plame.-- Plainly, a silly notion. She's not even gay.* :D
    10. The right has more of a propensity toward violence than the left. -- Plainly, a silly notion.

    This one stood out to me. Isn't this exactly the opposite? "Progressives" is a term often used to describe liberals would indicate that we are looking to the future and making progress and change, not backwards. Where as the rallying cry of many on the right seems to be "we want our country back" and hence a return to the way things use to be or looking back in time.

    You could be a Conservative if

    1. You believe the world was created in six days about 6000 years ago.
    2. That all the Founding Fathers were Christians, and they founded this as a Christian nation.
    3. That the Confederates won the Civil War, and the history has been altered since by Liberals.
    4. That the Masons are behind it.
    5. That the Jews are behind it.
    6. The the blacks are not behind it, because they are too stupid.
    7. That FDR created the First Great Republican Depression.
    8. That President Obama created the present Great Republican Recession.
    9. That Sadam had WMD.
    10. That Bush created a perfect Democracy in Iraq.
    11. That Palin is correct, Africa is a country.
    12. That the Delaware Dingbat will win :lol::lol::lol::cuckoo:
