I'm not certain where I first saw this. If you are its author, let me know in the comments section and I will credit you in an addendum.

It conforms, however, with my experience with liberals as a generalization.

I do not believe that all liberals take issue with all of the principles and values listed here, but in my experience the majority of them do not subscribe to the majority of the items on the lists.

Nine principles and 12 values that liberals can’t stand. They are the antithesis of what they believe..

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force
me to be charitable.
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

The Twelve Values

9-Hard Work
11-Personal Responsibility

ADDENDUM: Thanks to Lone Ranger at Important Stuff--Or Not for pointing out that is from Glenn Beck's 9/12 Project.

They deny it but it is the truth.

CB: I appreciate your coming by. Makes you cringe, doesn't it?

Shoprat: I've met some who not only don't deny that they hate these principles and values, they are proud that they don't subscribe to them.

You know, this is where it really breaks down.

The right is so self righteous that they strut like a bunch of damn fools who don't understand what a bunch of whitened sepulchers they are.

Joe said...

Ducky: That's nice. But I don't see any factual information or refutations in your response.

Illucidate, please.

These Are the Key traits I strive for every day.

You might want to ad "Respect is earned."

That is Glenn Beck's 9/12 Project.

It's so true, sadly. And somehow the left is more compassionate because they want to "help people" and the right is selfish.
