How do I know if I'm conservative?
Some folk out there are confused. They just don't know where they stand politically: are they Red Staters (conservative), or Blue Staters (liberals)? Well, allow me to clear the air. If you fit the following criteria, you most certainly can determine where you fit in on the political spectrum:
1. If your front porch collapses and more than two dogs die, you just might be a Red Stater.
2. If the size of your residence is determined by 'wides' (single wide, double wide, or if you are extremely wealthy, TRIPLE WIDE), you just might be a Red Stater.
3. If the highest compliment that can be paid to a local gal is 'say, nice tooth!', then you are probably a Red Stater.
4. If, in order to cross the border into your state, you must by law have at least three teeth pulled (preferrably one of the front ones), then you most likely live in a Red State.
5. If you have at least three non-operational vehicles up on blocks, in addition to two or more non-functional kitchen or laundry room appliances in your front lawn, it is possible that you live in a Red State.
6. If your working television set is sitting on top of your non-working television set, it's very likely that you are a conservative living in a Red State.
7. If you attend family reunions to meet girls, then you most definitely reside in a Red State.
8. If you have no idea how to load, fire or clean a double barrel shotgun, you are most definitely not a resident of a Red State.
9. If you think that receiving food stamps is a God Given Right, then you are very likely not living in a Red State.
10. If you voted for Obama (twice), you most definitely do not live in a Red State, although you most certainly do not even know what a Red State is.
