Tea Partiers, Republicans, and conservatives of every stripe throw a few terms around that go flying over the heads of most liberals. As a service, I have written this aid to help translate rhetoric from Conservatese to plain American English:
Entitlement = Charity that can be acquired without having to sit through a sermon.
Socialism = (see: entitlement)
Word Counts on Legislation = Conservatives hate reading.
We Want Our Country Back! = … from the Black, Muslim, Kenyan, Socialist, Nazi foreigner who is after our guns and white women!
Regime = Scary word they heard liberals using during the Bush years.
Liberal Bias = Anything not originating from Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Lew Rockwell…
Police State = Remember the Wild West? I do, from all those movies I saw growing up… I want to live there.
Career politician = Too much experience is bad. [Conservatives are retarded, and they want their leaders to be represent them.]
Revolution = Maybe the threat of violence will keep the Commies in line…
