Based on an article by Allen Clifton.  Like Allen, I’ve been amused, saddened and surprised by some of theseimages-149 super-frequent conservative statements that don’t seem to have a lot of thought behind them.

    • The government never does anything for me.”– Said by the person who drove on public roads from their job that provides overtime pay and safe working conditions for its employees, to pick up their children from public school. A job which they got because of their college degree, made possible by federal loans.  Oh, and their drive home was made safe due to a system of well organized traffic signals.  They probably stopped by the post office and the library on their way home, and didn’t get their car broken into while they were in said facilities.
    • “Keep the government out of my health care.”– Said by the person on Medicare, or the full time employee who has never had to pay a health care premium in their life.
    • “FEMA is unconstitutional.”– Said by the person prior to their town, and home, being destroyed by a natural disaster.
    • “I’m for a fiscally responsible government.”– Said by the person who voted for both Reagan and Bush twice.
    • “I’m for small government.”– Said by the person who supports a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage and laws which infringe on a woman’s right to choose.
    • “The Second Amendment keeps the government fearful of its citizens.”– Said by the person who supports spending hundreds of billions more on our defense, which is controlled by the government.
    • “I’m pro-life.”– Said by the person who brags about how often the death penalty is used in their state and who cheered when the government cut Aid to Dependent Children.
