Are you an "independent" voter?

Are you an independent who is still trying to decide whether to vote for Romney or Obama? Here's something that may help you out (it is attributed to Jeff Foxworthy and is making the rounds on the internet. I have no idea whether this is really from Jeff Foxworthy, but the content is so true):

Which  side of the fence?

If  you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a  great test!

If  a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If  a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

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.

If  a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If  a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

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

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

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.

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


Someone could respond by saying,

If you are a Democrat you believe women should have the choice to have an abortion
If you are a Republican you believe no one should be allowed to have abortions.

If you are a Democrat you believe anyone should be able to get married
If you are a Republican you want to stop some people from getting married.

There is some truth to this, of course. Neither Republicans nor Democrats are anarchists. We all believe society needs some rules and laws.

When it comes to laws and regulations, however, Republican tend to focus on the big issues. There seems to be no end to all the things Democrats want to regulate--all the way down to the size of soft drinks you can purchase or what local schools can offer in their cafeterias! The Obama administration has passed literally thousands and thousands of pages of new regulations!

We can have more government regulations and less freedom, or we can have less government and more freedom. In November, the choice is ours.
