Two good ole Kentucky boys were sitting outside one day having a beer, when one asked the other, “Are you a Democrat or a Republican.”
His friend responded, “Ain’t neither. These days you’re either a Liberal or a Conservative.”
His friend asked, “What’s the difference?”
“Well, the best way I can liken to explain it is, picture a man drowning fifty feet out in a lake. If a Conservative comes by and spies that man, he’ll throw him a twenty-five foot rope, making him swim the first twenty-five feet to prove he can help himself. Now, if a Liberal comes by and sees the same thing, he’ll throw the man a fifty foot rope. But then he’ll turn lose of his end and run off and do other good deeds.”
Many thanks to Dr. Tim Stivers for telling this joke back when I was a young man. Loved it then, love it now.
