|We get to play the "What If" game.|
Former president Jimmy Carter announced today that he is 100% cancer free. That's surely good news for both Carter and his family. I started thinking about what opinion I would have on this, if any, but that was boring. Instead I decided to think about what I would think of former president Jimmy Carter if I were a liberal, and he were a Republican.
If I were a liberal I would vehemently disagree with former president Carter. In fact the very mention of his name would probably send me into fits of rage.
If I were a liberal I would be aghast at the news of Jimmy Carter's cancer remission. I would take to social media to express my disappointment that he avoided a long and painful death.
If I were a liberal I would pray fervently for his cancer to return. This despite the fact that I am an atheist, and I obnoxiously mock everyone who has even a shred of faith.
If I were a liberal I might wish death upon President Carter's family. After all why just insult the man when I can drag his entire clan into my hate-filled delusions.
If I were a liberal, and a movie producer, I might make a film about President Carter being assassinated. It would represent the fulfillment of my darkest fantasies.
If I were a liberal I would compare President Carter to history's worst monsters, such as Hitler and Stalin. I would make up posters depicting him dressed in Nazi regalia, and bring them to whatever protest I happened to be attending.
If I were a liberal I would wish all of these hateful things on former President Carter, and more. Why would I do this, you ask? Simply because he disagrees with my deepest held beliefs...and that makes him completely and utterly evil.
Luckily, though, I'm not a liberal. I am simply a conservative, and as a conservative I will celebrate former President Carter's recovery, and wish him many more years of life.
