How To Decide If You're Liberal or Conservative...

It's not difficult at all to figure out if you're a *Liberal or not:



1. Ask yourself who you voted for for President in the past 40 years. If you voted for Nixon - Ford - Reagan - Bush,

You're probably NOT a Liberal.

2. If you think Nixon was one of our greatest Presidents,

You're probably NOT a Liberal.

3. If you believe that in order to get ahead people should pull themselves up by their boot-straps (what the heck are boot-straps, anyway?),

You're probably NOT a Liberal.

4. If you believe some books contain dangerous ideas and should be banned from the library,

You're probably NOT a Liberal.

5. If you think immigrants today are a burden on our country because they take our jobs, housing and health care,

You're probably NOT a Liberal.

6. If you think relying too much on military force to defeat terrorism creates hatred that leads to more terrorism,

You probably ARE a Liberal.

7. If you think good diplomacy is the best way to ensure peace,

You probably ARE a Liberal.

8. If you believe it’s best for the future of our country to be active in world affairs,

You probably ARE a Liberal.

9. If you think government often does a better job than people give it credit for,

You probably ARE a Liberal.

10. If you think government regulation of business is necessary to protect the public interest,

You probably ARE a Liberal.

11. If you love the color blue more than the color red

You probably ARE a Liberal.

12. If you use the Internet to get most of your news,

You probably ARE a Liberal.

If you are a Democrat, 62% of you identify yourselves as Liberal.

If you are a Liberal, you are probably highly educated.

Every time I think I'm drifting to the middle, some crazy on the right sends me running to the left in disgust and terror.
