50 signs that you are a Conservative

It is hard to be a Conservative, let alone a young conservative. Such idea is unthinkable in the mind of the left. But we do exist. And to the contrast of stereotypes from the liberal media, we are not all angry white men. The writer of the article is a Vietnamese (surprise?) and does not need a lecture from the left about the benefit of collectivism or socialism, he has lived through it.

You can disagree with me but you can’t call me racist, you can’t call me an angry white man either. As an Asian-Conservative, I believe that we should speak out more, rather than let the lefts keep on dictating to us what we should read and how we should think.
