20 Obvious Truths That 

Will Shock Liberals by John Hawkins

John Hawkins is a professional blogger who runs Right Wing News

1) The Founding Fathers were generally religious, gun-toting small government fanatics who were so far to the Right that they'd make Ann Coulter look like Jimmy Carter.  
In what way do conservatives promote gun-toting and/or small government? 
2) The greatest evil this country has ever committed isn't slavery; it's killing more than 50 million innocent children via abortion.  
What is proper sentencing for a woman found guilty of aborting a fetus?
3) Conservatives are much more compassionate than liberals and all you have to do to prove it is look at all the studies showing that conservatives give more of their money to charity than liberals do.
Does it bother conservatives when liberals label them as uncharitable?
4) When the Founding Fathers were actually around, there were official state religions and the Bible was used as a textbook in schools. The so-called "wall of separation between church and state" has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with liberal hostility to Christianity.  
Do Christian conservatives wish to send their children to Christian schools operated by the government?
5) The biggest problem with our economy today is Barack Obama. His demonization of successful people, his driving up gas prices, his regulatory overload and threats to increase taxes have terrified businesses into hunkering down, refusing to spend money, and declining to hire new people. Replacing him would do more than any government policy to spur economic growth.  
Which regulations will a conservative President work to eliminate?

6) Not only are conservatives more patriotic than liberals, but most American liberals "love" America in about the same way that a wife-beater loves his wife.  
Is patriotism so important that a conservative would mandate patriotic actions?
7) Out of every 100 cries of “Racism” you hear these days, 99 are motivated by nothing other than politics.  
Why do conservatives find it so difficult to ignore demagoguery while standing by principle?

8) Anyone paying income taxes is certainly paying his “fair share" -- and then some -- compared to the people who pay nothing.  
Why do conservatives oppose equal taxation?
9) You don't have a "right" to anything that other people have to pay to provide for you.
When are conservatives going to promote across the board tax cuts for everyone in the USA?

10) If we can ask people to present an ID to buy alcohol, drive a car, or get on an airplane, then asking them to present identification to vote is a no-brainer.
Why do conservatives intrude on the lives of others by preventing them from traveling freely?
11) There's absolutely nothing that the government does smarter, better, or more efficiently than the private market with roughly equivalent resources.
Which societal tasks currently handled by government should be privatized?
12) The biggest problem with education in this country is liberals. They fight vouchers, oppose merit pay, refuse to get rid of terrible teachers, and bend over backwards to keep poor kids trapped in failing schools.
Why do conservatives wish to keep those responsible for failing schools in charge of these schools?
13) Fascism, socialism, and communism are all left-wing movements that have considerably more in common with modern liberalism than modern conservatism.
Why do conservatives combat left wing authoritarianism with right wing authoritarianism?
14) The Democratic Party was behind slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow laws. It was also the party of Margaret Sanger, George Wallace, and Bull Connor. It has ALWAYS been a racist party. Even today, white liberals support Affirmative Action and racial set-asides because they still believe black Americans are too inferior to go up against whites on an even playing field.
Are Republican candidates going to call for the removal of all affirmative action policies?
15) A man with good morals who falls short and becomes a hypocrite is still a far better man than a liberal who can never be called a hypocrite because he has no morals at all.
What morals do conservatives possess that are lacking in liberals?
What morals do liberals possess that are lacking in conservatives?
16) The most dire threat to America's future and prosperity in the last 150 years hasn't been the Nazis, the Soviets, or Al-Qaeda;, it's the spending and overreach of our own government.
What government programs should be eliminated?
17) Greed isn't someone wanting to keep more of what he earns; it's people demanding a greater share of money that someone else earns.
How much of a man's earnings would a conservative allow that man to retain to spend as he wills?
18) Most of the time in American politics, the liberal "victim" is really a bad guy who is absolutely delighted by the opportunity to pretend to be "offended."
Are conservatives offended when Mothers ask "What American interests in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America require military protection?"
19) Jesus Christ was not a conservative, a liberal, or a politician. He was also not a capitalist or a socialist. Still, you can say this: Jesus drew sharp lines about what's right and wrong, he wasn't tolerant of what the Bible categorizes as sinful behavior, and there's absolutely no question that he would adamantly oppose abortion and gay marriage.  
Do conservatives wish to make the teachings of Jesus the standard of governance?
20) When you demand that other people fund your sexual escapades by buying your contraception, your sex life becomes their business.
Do conservatives fund prostitutes and their customers?
