Political Philosophies Explained in Simple "Two-Cow" Terms

Liberal:
You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful.
Instead of giving your neighbor one of your cows, you write to your congressman, demanding that he pass legislation for more government programs to help your neighbor get a cow. You hold a concert to raise awareness for the cow-lessness. Barbara Streisand sings for the cow-less, who couldn't attend because ticket prices are so expensive that only people with 3 or 4 cows can afford to attend. You wear a ribbon that signifies that you care about cowless people, even though you really haven't done anything to help them at all.
 
Conservative:
You have two cows.
Your neighbor has none.
You teach your neighbor how to work so he can buy his own cows.
 
Socialism: You have two cows. You keep one, but must give the other to your neighbor. You form a cooperative to tell him how to manage his cow.
 
Communism: You have two cows. The government takes both and provides you with milk. You must stand in line to get it. It is expensive and sour.
