25 signs you may be a conservative Republican

Flame away guys.

1. You believe that drug addiction is a moral failing and a crime, unless the addict is a millionaire conservative radio host which then makes it an "illness" and he needs our prayers for his "recovery".

2. You believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own.

3. You believe that the US should get out of the UN, and that our highest national priority is to enforce the UN's resolutions against Iraq.

4. You believe that the government should stay out of people's lives but it needs to punish anyone caught having private sex with the "wrong" gender.

5. You believe that pollution is okay, so long as it makes a profit.

6. You believe in prayer is schools, as long as they don't pray to Allah or Buddha.

7. You believe "Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

8. You believe that a woman cannot be trusted with decisions about her own body, but that large multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind with no regulation whatsoever.

9. You believe that you love Jesus and Jesus loves you, and that Jesus shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary.

10. You hate the ACLU for representing convicted felons, but they owed it to the country to bail out Oliver North.

11. You believe that the best way to encourage military morale is to praise the troops overseas while cutting their VA benefits.

12. You believe that group sex and drug use are degenerate sins that can only be purged by running for governor of California as a Republican.

13. You believe it is wise to keep condoms out of schools, because we all know if teenagers don't have condoms they won't have sex.

14. You believe that the best way to fight terrorism is to alienate our allies and then demand their cooperation and money.

15. You believe that government medicine is wrong and that HMO's and insurance companies have your best interests at heart.

16. You believe that giving free health care to all Iraqis is sound government policy but giving free health care to Americans is socialism.

17. You believe that tobacco's link to cancer and global warming are "junk science", but Creationism or Intelligent Design should be taught in schools.

18. You believe that waging war with no exit strategy was wrong in Vietnam but right in Iraq.

19. You believe that Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney was doing business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

20. You believe that government should restrict itself to just the powers named in the Constitution, which includes banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

21. You believe that the public has a right to know about the adulterous affairs of Democrats, while those of Republicans are a "private matter".

22. You believe that the public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades but that Bush was right to censor 28 pages from the Congressional 9/11 report because you can't handle the truth.

23. You support state rights, which means the Attorney General telling states what locally passed voter initiatives he will allow them to have.

24. You believe that what Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital national interest but what Bush did in the 1980's is "stale news" and "irrelevant".

25. You believe that trade with Cuba is wrong because it is communist, but trading with China and Vietnam is good for business.

I am so tired of anyone who brings up "exit strategy"

What ws the "exit strategy" in Korea, WWII, WWI, the Spanish-American War, the Civil War, the Mexican American War, the War of 1812?

This political philosophy bashing thread is pretty useless. I know I'd close one that only gave a list of a couple dozen gripes about liberals without even bothering to discuss. That's called trolling.
