You Don't Have To Be Smart To Be A Conservative!


Some people think that it's hard to become a Conservative with all that reading and training and stuff, but you too can become a Conservative without exercising your brain at all!



You don't even have to know about math or science or any of that hard stuff!



Conservative geography is a snap too...



...and everyone hangs on every word out of your mouth, no matter how stupid you sound...



...as long as you shout it out.



But back to our subject - First, from our friends at Alternet.org, here's the shortcut to Conservatism...just like this guy learned.

"How to Become a Conservative in Four Embarrassing Steps."




"Not that we'd want to. But many Americans, perplexingly, have taken that path in the last ten years.

"Not that we'd want to. But many Americans, perplexingly, have taken that path in the last ten years, as 27 percent of those polled now consider themselves 'mostly' or 'consistently' conservative, up from 18 percent in 2004. (Conservatives were at 30 percent in 1994. Liberals increased from 21 to over 30 percent in the 1990s and have remained approximately the same since then.) 

"The language of true conservatives often turns to denial, dismissal, and/or belligerence, without verifiable facts of any substance. There is also evidence for delusional thinking and a lack of empathy. Here are four ways to be just like them. 

"1. Ignore Facts 

"Research shows that conservatives tend to modify facts to accommodate their beliefs and convictions, while liberals are more willing to deal with the complexity of multiple sources of information that help determine the true facts. 

"In simpler terms, numerous studies (herehere, and here) conclude that conservatives are not very smart. 


"Perhaps the best example of fact-aversion is climate change. Incredibly, even though 97 percentof climate scientists agree that climate warming is very likely due to human activities, 66 percent of Republicans say they do not believe in global warming...

Conservatism has a long history in America, and you didn't have to be smart then either...



...especially when it comes to intelligent, compassionate legislation...



...because when you're a Conservative, you're special...



...REALLY special!



Note to self: When you're a Conservative, you don't want to be like this guy...



...because that's certainly not the Conservative goal for America...

...because Conservative means getting rich while your enemies suffer and die.



It's so easy when you're engaged in class warfare, just like falling of a Log Cabin Republican.



So no matter what others think, BE PROUD that you're a fledgling Conservative...



...because Conservatives rawk.



...and roll!




You even get to play war games too...



...because Conservatives are patriots...



...ready to protect their country or state...



...AND they're champions of the oppressed...



...and they're the real dreamers!



So when people ask if you're a Conservative, be proud...



...because with just a few bumper stickers, everyone can see how Conservative you are!



And now you too are super special!



********************

It has been said that the GOP is made up of a few smart people and a whole lot of dumb ones, but the leaders and followers have one common trait - meanness.

When one political "party" proselytizes the dumbest and meanest among us, something is wrong with our politics.

When a "political philosophy" becomes a license to steal and kill, something is wrong with our laws.

Isn't is time to criminalize Conservatism?
