Differences In Conservatives and Liberals

Humor - Political
By: EmmaRileySutton

Introduction:The United States has a been a two political party nation (Republican and Democrat) for many years. Right or wrong, good or bad, that is the way it is. Republicans are known as "Conservatives" and Democrats are known as "Liberals." They have completely different outlooks on how they want the the country to be run. These are a few of the major differences between Conservatives and Liberals.

  • 01

    Second Ammendment

    A big difference in Conservatives and Liberals is how they feel about the Second Amendment - AKA gun control. When Conservatives don't like guns, they simply don't buy them or allow them in their homes. When liberals do not like guns, they want all guns to be illegal and banned.

  • 02

    Entitlements

    An enormous difference in Conservatives and Liberals is how they feel about entitlements. When Conservatives hit a run of bad luck or are down and out, they think about ways to improve their circumstances. When a Liberal faces those same situations, they want to know how the government is going to save them and take care of their needs.

  • 03

    News Channels

    A big difference in Conservatives and Liberals is how they feel about the freedom of the press. When Conservatives hear a news broadcast that is expressing ideas different from their own, they either listen to learn something or turn the channel. When a Liberal hears a news broadcast they disagree with, they demand that the broadcaster be fired or the entire network be taken off the air.

  • 04

    Faith

    Another difference in Conservative and Liberals has to do with the First Amendment as well; how they both feel about freedom of religion. Conservatives who are not religious or "non-believers" simply abstain from going to religious services. Liberals who are also not religious wants to God taken out of everything (even off the money) and all forms of religion silenced.

  • 05

    Health Care

    A big difference in Conservatives and Liberals is how they both feel about health care. When a Conservative doesn't have health insurance or loses their insurance, they either buy the health coverage they can afford or they find a job that will provide it to them. When a Liberal is without health insurance, they want the government to provide it and demands that the rest of the country pays for their insurance.




Final Thoughts

Republicans and Democrats. Conservatives and Liberals. If these two parties could somehow come together, treating each other with honesty and respect, somewhere in the middle, the country would be so much better off. Just imagine...the roads would be paved...our country would be safe...public schools would be a place for children. Maybe in the next election. Wait. That is what was said in the last election. Perhaps the election after the next one. Or, the one after that or the one after that or the...

    Utterly AWESOME list ... and so true. I haven't a clue why it's not earned a hundred H5s yet, but it got mine!

    LOL Thanks! H5!

    @Robertsbaby. My apologies. I mis-read your post.

    Hmmm...I must agree with Pupfasionista and Robertsbaby. Although this list is marked "humor," the content does come across as liberal bashing. Writing humor is like walking a high-wire -- one misstep and you're on the ground. PupFashionista's "2010 Presidential Hopefuls" is well-written, bi-partisan and funny. You might want to take a look at my off-the-wall "Reasons to Vote Repdemopendent." Keep on writing. 99.9% of the time I adore your lists! Joyce

    While the conservative in me laughed my butt off, I would hope that this list was written in jest. If not it seriously lacks the appropriate tone for a political piece, even if it is meant to pander to the right wing conservatives.

    But if it was a joke ignore that last bit, and thumbs up for the wit. It intentionally (or unintentionally) pokes fun at both the ridiculous values of some liberals, and the rigid self-righteousness of some conservatives.

    Good points! My son-in-law (liberal socialist) and I (conservative republican) can hardly find common ground over breakfast, but we at least talk!

  • SarahRhodes 11/7/2010 Flag This Comment

    This is too funny! I love it when both sides of the political argument are painted with such broad strokes. Stereotyping both sides like this is hilarious! It only proves that there has to be some middle ground where they can come together - starting with how not all Conservatives and all Liberals have the same ideas and beliefs! Loving it!

  • PupFashionista 11/7/2010 Flag This Comment

    As a liberal, I found several of these both unfounded and offensive. By stereotyping all liberals and spreading media fed myths, it is not going towards your goal of "treating each other with honesty and respect." It would be just as easy for me to state all conservatives are gun toting, religious fanatics, racists who don't care about the poor and disabled. After all, that's what the media and common stereotypes tell me.
