Humor Alert! Humor Alert! Humor Alert!

Humor alert! Humor alert! Humor alert! That should get the 'secular progressives' pretty well worked up without another word! It seems they don't like, or don't get, my sense of humor. Or both! Don't care!

Further disclaimer: This is NOT a true story, it is a JOKE!

There is a rally for liberals, and the crowd is entirely liberal with the exception of one little old lady who is totally, completely conservative. Working the crowd, the man hosting the event yells, "How many liberals do we have here?", and the crowd went ballistic, hollering and screaming. Total excitement. The people were in a frenzy. All except the little, conservative lady who, by happenstance, was sitting 'front row' in front of the podium, quietly composed. Of course, the host, not seeing a positive response, singled her out, and asked, "Madam, are you not a liberal?" She proceeded to stare him in the eye, and with total indignance, replied, "No, I happen to be a life-long conservative, and I'm proud of it!" The man then asked, "And, just WHY are you a conservative?" She replied, "My daddy was a conservative, my grand-daddy was a conservative, and so I am also a conservative." To which he replied, "Madam, may I ask, if your daddy was an idiot, and your grand-daddy was an idiot, THEN what would you be?" Her answer, "Why THEN sir, I would be a liberal!"

End of joke!

I realize that this is a joke but I am saddened by the continued, ignorant use of the term, liberal. Upon the founding of this once-free country, liberal was used to describe someone who believed in individual rights and limited government. Today it has somehow morphed into a word used to describe those on the left, or Democrats. Nevertheless, its original meaning should not be lost. Many of today’s voting conservatives are for gun rights; one could accurately describe them as “Gun Liberals” or those who believe in an individual’s right to own a firearm – though one could argue that today’s conservative politicians are no more for gun rights than Rosie O’Donnell. On the left side of this, many of today’s self-proclaimed Democrats are for free speech rights; one could accurately describe them as “Free Speech Liberals” or those who believe in the freedom of expression, speech, the press, assembly, petitioning the government, and etcetera – though one could argue that today’s Democrat politicians are no more for free speech than Josef Stalin.

I, for one, consider myself a Classical Liberal or libertarian. I believe in an individual’s right to do as he pleases as long as he does no harm to another. In other words, I would love to see the abolishment of victimless crimes, like the regulation of gun ownership, for instance.

My hope is that modern Conservatives and Democrats will begin to use another term to describe those on the left. How about using Socialists, Marxists, or Communists? Any one of these could accurately define the current Democratic Party. The only thing liberal about them is their tendency to be liberal with taxpayers’ money in welfare handouts and big government programs. Then again, conservative politicians are just as liberal when it comes to that.

May God bless you and Downsize D.C.
