You Might Be A Conservative IF:

From a Facebook member.
1: You're irate over the president taking so any vacation days on the taxpayer's dime (61 thus far), but you thought George W. Bush earned every minute of his leisure time (196 days at the same point in his presidency).

2: You're happy with your 40 hour work week, aid vacations and company-provided healthcare, but you're strongly anti-union, because those commies haven't done anything for you lately. 

3: You strongly support the First Amendment and it's guarantee of religious freedom to all, but you don't think Muslims have a right to build an Islamic Community Center in Manhattan. 

4: You believe Ronald Reagan was a devout christian, even though he hated going to church, but any president who spends twenty years going to the same Trinity United Church in chicago must be a Muslim.

5: You believe when a Republican governor creates a healthcare package with an individual mandate for everyone in his state, that's a good idea. But when a Democratic president does it, suddenly it's unconstitutional.

6: You're so enthused about demonstrating your Second Amendment rights, you can think of no finer place to brandish your pistol in public than at a presidential rally. 

7: You believe Bill Clinton was responsible for Osama bin Laden's escape ten years ago, but thankfully George W. Bush caught up with him and killed him in Pakistan.

8: You believe in putting American jobs first, except when president Obama rescued 1.5 million GM and Chrysler autoworkers, because that was socialism.

9: It angers you that you can't communicate with the Mexican busboy at your local Olive Garden, but when you took a vacation to San Francisco's Chinatown, you thought it's quaint that so many Chinese-Americans are holding fast to their traditional language. Because that's America!

10: You deny that the lunatic who tried to murder Gaby Giffords was a conservative, even though he targeted a Jewish, pro-choice, pro gay rights, Democratic Congresswoman.

11: You thought it was perfectly normal that every president in history had an untethered right to raise the debt ceiling when warranted, but when Obama asked the GOP held congress to do it, you thought it only natural that it be tied to cutting Social Security and Medicare.

12: When the new 112th Congress was sworn in, you swooned as they promised to focus on Jobs, jobs, jobs. But when they pivoted, and went after NPR, Planned Parenthood and gay rights, you cheered.

13: You accuse president Obama of raising your taxes to the highest point ever, even though they're lower today than at any time since 1950.   

14: You believe the wealthiest Americans are job creators, and they are but it doesn't bother you that all the workers in those positions are in India, China and Malaysia, and they're doing the jobs that our fathers once did.

15: You believe gays are anti-American, because their lifestyle is a threat to the children unless they're married to Tea Party-backed presidential candidates from Minnesota.

16: You strongly defend individual freedom, but that freedom doesn't include a woman's right to 
decide her own healthcare needs.

17: You believe corporations are people too, and are deserving of the same rights as the rest of us. Just not the same obligations to pay personal income tax free of corporate loopholes, or penalties for massive criminal behavior and tax evasion. In these matters, corporations are deserving of special rights.

18: And since corporations are now people too, you must believe in their right to a driver's license, the right to marry, to adopt children, etc. These rights shall not be denied to Exxon, Halliburton and BP (but still immune from the right of the People to try, convict and sentence to death any corporation that conspires to commit a felony because at that point, they're suddenly not people again.)

19: You still believe Climate Change is a myth, and the recent record highs, lows, floods and droughts around the world coinciding with climate scientist's predictions are all an amazing coincidence. Oh, and Al Gore is FAT!

20: You believe when George W. Bush took the national debt from $5 trillion to $11 trillion, it was necessary for him to do so to keep America safe. But when Barack Obama added to it by trying to rescue the country from a second Great Depression, he was deliberately trying to destroy America!

21: You believe America is a God fearing country, and that the Almighty protects those who believe just as you do. But it's never crossed your mind that the majority of tornados, hurricanes and floods all occur in the Bible Belt.

22: You believe that no matter who's in the White House, the office, if not the man himself is deserving of your respect. The only exceptions to this rule, are if his middle name sounds Muslim, and if he's not at least as white as that black guy who works down in the mailroom at the office.

The Debt Ceiling Arguments and Propaganda

At this point, do I really need to say anything? The tea baggers, who have tried to change the name to the Tea Party, (which was actually the anti-gun control party of 1999 in America) is ludicrously, ambiguously, nonsensably confusing. They want to increase or at least continue the same amount of spending while cutting taxes and they don't understand why that won't work. Their main agenda this session was to try to screw up the economy for their large big corporate leaders who won't do a thing for the Tea Party beside a lot of "attaboys" and then betray them, again.
I liken it to an old, faithful dog. They are so used to licking and laying next to their master's feet, that, when the master gets a new puppy (a terrible case of unlimited greed), that they don't know how to change direction or what else to do except, at least, "TRY" to get attention by using the same old methods without knowing or understanding how to have an individual attack of ego, having been deserted and being mistreated, so they continue to wag their tail, cock their head expectantly, and wait for the ear scratching, petting, and stroking that they used to receive. Instead they are being called hobbits and they still haven't figured out that they are backing the wrong horse.
I don't think we should feel anger towards these people, we should pity them for being so blind. The majority of them can be fitted for a white cane and dark glasses so we don't have to watch their stumbling around in the dark with Reaganesque slogans of fictional grandure written by his speech writers for a public whose passion for country and national pride were one million times surpassed by their ignorance of and inexperience in dealing with, political betrayal. One would think that after the Nixon Years, that no one would trust political rhetoric again but the NeoCon bully pulpit for propaganda is open and running their mouths twenty four hours a day, seven days a week with the delusion that the ingnorance is bliss attitude of the fifties is supposed to be alive and well among us to survive.
Everyone agrees that having a king who divides the wealth up for the rich owner class only and gives pittance to the rest in real property and future investments - is WRONG. But, some are so blind as to how badly they want to be led on what to think, how to vote, how to act, and what is moral, that they relinquish all rights to have an individual intelligence to someone they deem more qualified, based on his decision to make money off of telling them how right he is. The list of those types is too long and flamboyantly obvious that one only needs realize their own true potential and try to enlist the backup from these demigods that they propose to millions that they provide, only once in order to find that you don't belong to the club. The club has set rules for membership and they are changing to make the path of acceptance into the club slimmer and slimmer by the minute.
I have one thing to say to the supposed Tea Party members. Whatever your demographic is, you better check and make sure you are a member before you start leading the cheer leading team for next year. Those honorary memberships that you were graced with during the election campaign that some campaign contribution volunteer told you over the phone in order to enlist your contribution and your vote might not have been the opinion of the candidate in question. I would submit that you also need to see what he is able to, not just what he wants to or says he is going to, but, what he is actually ABLE TO put into legislation and how he votes for or against things that benefit you.
The people who want to make more and give you less are the type of politician who votes for a pay increase for himself each year while cutting off public services to you, in order to be able to afford it. ASK YOURSELF: is this man looking out for your interest, since he is supposed to be a servant of the people? Or is he looking out for himself? When politicians tell us we need to tighten OUR BELTS, shouldn't they be willing to do the same? When military spending in other countries could be spent on jobs in our country, with our soldiers spending their money in our country, with their families living and working in our country, and our goods and services being spent and manufactured for our country, then aren't we then serving our country best?
Do you really know how much waste is being purposely caused by military in order to have a higher budget next year? When you ask about it, are you being given a bum's rush answer? If you are, ask any ex-military employee. They have seen it all, so ask your friends, relatives, spouse, or whoever you know that has seen these things while serving.
You will come to understand that the United States Military could spend half the budget they are allowed if only they lived within their means instead of however much they want to receive next year, just in case another war comes up. If a bum is sitting on your front lawn and the police came and instead of making him move, they instead came back to your door, knocked and responded by saying, "Well, there really is nothing we can do since he is already there...", then, you will have a complete understanding of how our economy is being propped up by fictitious companies that were originally patriotically staffed with people who wanted us to survive as a nation. They are now run by people who figured out how to gouge the taxpayers for money. Look up the board of directors for who the largest shareholders are in companies that do nothing but manufacture warfare equipment and you will finally understand what happened to our economy.
