Someone who has a family and makes a good amount of money and doesn't want to be taxed through the roof or to have his/her tax dollars given to those who have not earned money and who live off of handouts. Stereotyped by the liberal media as Bible-thumping, gun-totting inbreed white trash. Does not want to have medicare socialized because then those who have earned more health care will have to wait for those who haven't and doctors will be paid less money, which will eventually lead to less qualified doctors.
Liberal: Are you a conservative/Republican?
Liberal: Why aren't you a white trash bible-thumping moron?
Me: Because that's only the way the liberal media portrays Republicans. I'm actually highly intelligent and earn my money through hard work, but don't want to be taxed through the roof to essentially provide welfare to those that are not as successful as I am.
Liberal: Oh, that's reasonable.
Me: I know.
