You might be a liberal if...

From Right Minded


You might be a liberal if...

You believe public invocation of God's name is unconstitutional, unless it is quickly followed by an expletive.

You believe in doing everything for the children, including aborting them.

You dismiss Ronald Reagan, Fred Thompson, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as nothing more than actors, but find solace in the leftist political views of George Clooney, Martin Sheen, and Tim Robbins, who are actors.

You believe the U.S. Supreme Court -- and not 271 legally-chosen electors -- selected George W. Bush as President.

You believe President Bush and Vice-President Cheney are evil, but you have a soft place in your heart for Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.

You believe child pornography deserves constitutional protection, but the Ten Commandments don't.

You believe you are generous and caring by voting for candidates who promise to take the money of others to pay for government entitlements, while donating very little, if any, of your own income to charity.

You believe Republicans are racist, even though a Democrat coined the slogan "segregation forever," and the only former Klansman in the U.S. Congress is also a Democrat.

You believe military ventures into Haiti and Bosnia were worthwhile, but, being a self-described civil-rights champion, you find the liberation of the Afghan and Iraqi people from tyranny and oppression as a misguided endeavor.

You call yourself "pro-choice," but don't believe parents should have access to school choice through vouchers, and that workers shouldn't have investment choice through Social Security privatization.

You believe in affirmative action, but oppose the installation of such notable minorities as Miguel Estrada and Janice Rogers Brown on the federal judiciary.

You worship at the altar of diversity and tolerance, but can't seem to make room at your altar for intelligent design or abstinence education.

You believe capitalism is inherently evil because it encourages survival-of-the-fittest, but eagerly accept Darwinian evolution, and its survival-of-the-fittest explanation for the origin of the species, as the natural order of things.

You were never particularly bothered by the violent content of typical Hollywood fare -- until "The Passion of the Christ."

You believe the right to abortion is protected by the U.S. Constitution, but the right to bear arms, which is explicitly protected by the Second Amendment, isn't.

You believe that if an individual chain smokes and eats fast-food every day, then his poor health is the fault of Joe Camel and Ronald McDonald.

You believe that wealthy Republicans are out-of-touch with the average citizen, but admire multi-millionaire Senators Ted Kennedy and John Kerry because you believe they understand the plight of the common man.

Appending the prepositional phrase "for the rich" to end of the words "tax cut" comes as naturally to you as breathing.

You shrug your shoulders at Internet pornography in public libraries, abrasive language on network television, and partial-birth abortion, but the phrase "Choose Life" shakes you to the core.
