You must be a liberal if …

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | I must admit, I've been surprised by the amount of vitriol coming from supposedly intelligent rational people when it comes to what they believe about our world and how we should live and govern. They seethe when talking about President George W. Bush. Their hate for him is inexplicable. Those people are known as Liberals, or as some refer to themselves, "Progressives." Below are traits of the above. You can believe in one or two, but if you identify with 3 or more you get the Liberal medal around your neck or as I look at it, the albatross. You must be a liberal:

  • If you voted for the Iraq war when it was the popular thing to do, then claim you were hypnotized by Bush's "lies" when it became unpopular.

  • If you say Bush is "dumb" even after he beat you in two elections you were positive you would win.

  • If you believe your Democrat controlled congress should spend it's time investigating and impeaching the president in wartime even though there's no evidence of any crimes.

  • If you hate Dubya more than you love America.

  • If your idea of free speech is to shut down talk radio.

  • If you don't want profiling for terrorists even though evidence is overwhelming that most are Middle Easterners.

    If you think personal attacks will ingratiate you to the voters.

  • If you think the war on terror has nothing to do with the war in Iraq.

  • If you think that more than ˝ of the country is brain dead because they aren't in lockstep with everything you're sure is right.

  • If you're for abortion but against the death penalty.

  • If you voted for General Patraeus and the surge, then call it a failure well before he had the troops needed to perform it.

  • If you think capitalism should be replaced by Socialism, despite hundreds of years of evidence that our economy is number 1 in the world.

  • If you think we have to dumb down our economy because of the man-made Global Warming scam.

  • If you think it's our fault terrorists attacked us.

  • If you think everything will be "hunky dory" if we just talk to the terrorists.

  • If you think the war on terror is just a bumper sticker.

  • If you like higher taxes, when all evidence shows that lower taxes benefits everyone.

  • If you think all American corporations are evil.

  • If you think government can end poverty.

  • If you think you can't have a view about foreign policy if you haven't served in the military…that is…unless its' your opinion.

  • If you believe there is no liberal bias in the media.

  • If you believe there's a vast right wing conspiracy.

  • If you believe George Bush had the levies blown up in New Orleans.

  • If you equate Republicans with Nazis.

  • If you believe Bill Clinton was impeached for covering up sex.

  • And finally, you're stunned and dismayed that fellow Liberals, Michael E. O'Hanlon and Kenneth M. Pollack, are claiming they see success in Iraq, via their article entitled "A War We Just Might Win."


If you think I'm unfair, I challenge you to write how you characterize a conservative.


I'll be on the golf course…
