If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, these observations may help label you:


If a Conservative/Libertarian doesn’t like guns, they do not buy one.

If a Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist doesn’t like guns, they want all guns outlawed.


If a Conservative/Libertarian is a vegetarian, they don’t eat meat.

If a Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist is a vegetarian, they want all meat products banned for everyone.


If a Conservative/Libertarian is homosexual, they quietly lead their life.

If a Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist is homosexual, they demand legislated respect.


If a Conservative/Libertarian is down and out, they think about how to better their situation.

A Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist wonders who is going to take care of them.


If a Conservative/Libertarian doesn’t like a talk show host, they switch channels.

A Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist will demand that those they don’t like be shut down.


If a Conservative/Libertarian is a “non-believer” (i.e. atheist, agnostic, etc.), they don’t go to church.

A Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist without any “religious affiliation” wants any mention of God and/or religion silenced.


If a Conservative/Libertarian decides they need health care, they go about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.

A Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist demands that the rest of us pay for theirs.


Summary: The above comparisons don’t fare very well at all for the Secular-Leftist-Progressive-Marxist (SLPM) side of the fence.

All of today’s scandals repudiate over-sized government, which would be the result of SLPM leaning politicians.

Hopefully you let your conscience be your guide when you voted in the primary election.

K. G. (Gerald) Miller, Redmond
