Received this in my email this morning [Jan. 25, 2016] with no copy right or other certification that Jeff Foxworthy actually wrote or said these words. It’s forwarded on because, based on 75 years of living in America, an Ole Seagull believes that, in its majority, it express a truism that has forever changed America into something he doesn’t even recognize anymore. Although it’s in terms of “Republican” or “Democrat” he believes that the terms “Conservative” or “Liberal” could be interchanged with them.
“Republican or Democratic
The Fence Test… straight forward thinking.. by Jeff Foxworthy…
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
GUNS*: If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one. If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
DIET: If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat. If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
SEXUALITY: If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
WELFARE: If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. If a Democrat is down-and-out, he wonders who is doing to take care of him.
CONTROL: If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels. A Democrat demands that those they don’t like be shut down.
RELIGION: If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church. A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
HEALTH CARE: If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.
SENSITIVITY: If a Republican reads this he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. A Democrat will delete it because he’s “offended”.
Well, I forwarded it.”
For what it matters, an Ole Seagull wasn’t laughing when he posted this.
* The CAPITALIZED intro word to each “If” were added by the Ole Seagull.”
