You May be a Conservative American if:
By Brent Smith
August 14, 2017
You are wealthy, unapologetic and not racked with guilt.
You don't believe you gained your wealth on the backs of the poor.
You are not wealthy, but want to be, and don't wish to rob or scam anyone to get that way.
You don’t feel guilty about wanting to keep more of what you’ve earned.
You don't hate or wish to punish the people who have more than you, simply because they have more.
You are not a racist, but the left says you are.
You are not a homophobe, but the left says you are.
You are not a bigot, but the left says you are.
You are not a sexist, but the left says you are.
You are not transphobic, but the left says you are.
You don’t believe that because men should use the men’s room and women should use the lady’s room makes you transphobic.
You believe there are only two sexes.
You believe men and women are actually different.
You believe refugees and immigrants should be fully vetted.
You are not racist because you believe refugees and immigrants should be vetted – but the left says you are.
You feel for the less fortunate, but know a hand out won't necessarily help them in the long run.
You believe being compassionate means trying to get people off government assistance - not on.
You don't classify people by skin color or ethnicity.
You don't classify people as victimized groups.
You don't pit classes of citizens against one another.
You believe the only true diversity is diversity of thought.
You don't believe in hyphenated Americans. You're either American or you're not.
You don't believe owning a gun makes you evil.
You believe more guns in the hands of responsible citizens actually makes us safer.
You don’t believe illegal aliens should be allowed a free entry pass into our country.
You don’t believe illegal aliens are entitled to any free stuff, just because they showed up.
You don’t believe that wanting illegal aliens deported makes you a racist, but the left says you are.
You believe in the sanctity of life.
You believe in helping others who at least try to help themselves.
You don’t believe in man-caused global warming.
You believe in climate change because that’s what the climate does – it changes.
You believe freedom is worth fighting for.
You honor those who serve and have served in our military.
You believe America is great because America is good.
You believe one cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
You believe the government cannot give to anyone, anything that the government does not first take from someone else.
You believe the government should live within its means – like the rest of us.
You know you cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
You understand that the beginning of the end of any nation is when half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them - and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they’ve work for.
