List Rules Republicans only: vote up the stereotypes, cliches, and generalizations about your party that you're sick of hearing from others.

Wrong stereotypes about Republicans run rampant in the United States, so let's all just take a moment to acknowledge some of these and hopefully (for the love of God!) move past them. Some generalizations about Republicans are benign, if wrong - liberals think we must all love guns and have loads of money. Other Republican stereotypes are downright offensive - minorities can't be Republicans, Republicans hate women, and so on. Also wrong! It's time to separate Republican party clichés from our actual, you know, political beliefs. Liberals, if you are going to judge us, please judge us as individuals on the political and social issues that we care about and not on these inaccurate Republican stereotypes.

So what do Republicans believe? We believe in a smaller federal government with less regulations that stall the economy and hold us back from realizing our full potential. What do we not believe? Let's start with the fact that - we do not (necessarily) believe that NASCAR is the only sport worth watching, that higher education is for wussies, and that women don't deserve an equal seat at the table. We're not all racist rednecks. We believe that we all deserve an equal seat at the table. And that maybe government shouldn't even be at the table (or maybe they get a stool pushed back away from the table.)

When you ask liberals what Democrats think of Republicans, they like to point out these dumb Republican party stereotypes to detract from the logic of our actual beliefs. But the tide is turning in America. Many influential people who were once Democrats are now Republicans. And many middle class people are realizing that government can't save them, they have to work hard and save themselves.

Fellow conservatives, vote on this list of stereotypes Republicans are sick of hearing. And while we're in the spirit of getting to know each other, head over to this list of Stereotypes That Democrats Are Tired Of Hearing and see what it's like on the other side of the aisle.
