17 QUALIFICATIONS TO BE A GOOD LIBERAL

17 QUALIFICATIONS TO BE A GOOD LIBERAL

1. You have to be against capital punishment, but support abortion on demand.

2. You have to believe that businesses create oppression and governments create prosperity.

3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens are more of a threat than nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Iran or Chinese and North Korean communists.

4. You have to believe that there was no art before federal funding.

5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical changes in the earth's climate and more affected by soccer moms driving SUVs.

6. You have to believe that gender roles are artificial, but being homosexual is natural.

10. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

11. You have to believe the NRA is bad because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.

12. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

13. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloia Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, or Abraham Lincoln.

That is a great post Hiker and all 17 are on the money..
I would like to add 1 more though.

18- you have to believe that the Economy was destroyed by people borrowing money they can never hope to pay back and the Libral fix is for the Government to borrow more money that it can ever hope to pay back and give it to the Banks to loan to people who can't afford to ever pay it back.
