How to decode a conservative campaign speech

With the upcoming election, I thought that a dictionary of conservative code words might come in handy.  Feel free to add new definitions.

Conservative says…
Liberal should hear…
“Family”
The war on gays
“Pro-Life”
Pro-War, Pro-Death Penalty, and Pro-We Choose For You
“Religious Freedom”
Freedom to spread Christianity
“War on Religion”
It’s unacceptable that our laws and culture aren’t based solely on my interpretation of the Bible
“Capitalism”
A market economy that’s rigged toward the “Job Creators”
“Job Creators”
The source of lobbying funds that keep the system rigged
“Class Warfare”
Stop pointing out that the system is rigged
“Elitist”
Educated
“Liberal bias”
The facts don’t fit the narrative
