    A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many
    others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other
    liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more
    government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

    She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative,
    a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had
    participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that
    her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he
    thought should be his.

    One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes
    on the rich and the need for more government programs.

    The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the
    truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she
    was doing in school.

    Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let
    him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a
    very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no
    time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have
    time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because
    she spent all her time studying.

    Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?"

    She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes,
    she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on
    campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the
    parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because
    she's too hung over."

    Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office
    and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only
    has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would
    be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

    The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired
    back, "That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair! I've worked really
    hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work!
    Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I
    worked my tail off!"

    The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the
    conservative side of the fence."

    If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great

    If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a liberal
    doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

    If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a liberal is a
    vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his
    situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

    If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

    If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal
    non-believer wants any mention of God and Jesus silenced.

    If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for
    it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest
    of us pay for his.

    If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a
    good laugh. A liberal will delete it because he's "offended."
