Which side of the fence do you sit on?

If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrats demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

What an interesting set of strawman fallacies you have there. Can you provide evidence to the validity of your strawmans against democrats as a whole?

Let's see if I can add a factual one:

If you're a Democrat and you don't like gay marriage, you don't have one.
If you're a Republican and you don't like gay marriage, you create laws banning them.

How would you say one of these on "don't like abortion" would read?

If you're a Democrat and you're Christian, you don't think Christmas is a right
If you're a Republican and you're Christian, you're appalled that non-Christians aren't celebrating Christmas

Tell me what part of this one is not true.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

That is one from the OP and I don't see anything wrong with it. How many GOP believers who are Christians can you show me on this forum that this doesn't fit? I will begin a head count of the Dems that it fits so you can see it.

If a Republican does not want to join a Union they want to outlaw unions

If a Democrat sees a government program with problems they want to reform it

If a Democrat does not want to marry someone of the same sex they don't
If a Republican does not want to marry someone of the same sex they want to pass an Ammendment to the Constitution to ensure that no one ever can

See how easy that particular game is to play

Democrats, Republicans, all just nobles fighting over who gets to own the peasants.

The American people are stupid. Plain stupid and they are pushing themselves right into being slaves.

Not a single one of them supports liberty and freedom, they all support "What fits in line with their ideal". They can all go to hell, and the rest of the nation with them. You made your bed, sleep in it in idiots.

So basically, if either side hates something they want it banned? Sounds about right
