    I rec this from the Constitution Party email.
    I think it is excellent

    A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so
    many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and
    among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to
    support more government programs, in other words redistribution of
    wealth.
    She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch
    conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures
    that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a
    professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil,
    selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.
    One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher
    taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.
    The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be
    the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking
    how she was doing in school.
    Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and
    let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was
    taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which
    left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She
    didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many
    college friends because she spent all her time studying.
    Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?"
    She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy
    classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so
    popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to
    all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes
    because she's too hung over."
    Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's
    office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your
    friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and
    certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."
    The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily
    fired back, "That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair! I've worked
    really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of
    hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She
    played while I worked my tail off!"
    The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the
    conservative side of the fence."
    If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
    If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
    If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
    If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
    If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
    If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
    A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him..
    If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.
    If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
    A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and Jesus silenced.
    If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping
    for it, or may choose a job that provides it..
    A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.
    If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have
    a good laugh.
    A liberal will delete it because he's "offended."
    Well, I posted it for you.
