    Father/daughter Talk

    FATHER/DAUGHTER TALK

    A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like
    so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal
    Democrat, and was very much in favor of the redistribution of wealth.

    She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch
    Republican, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she
    had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt
    that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep
    what he thought should be his.

    One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to
    higher taxes on the rich and the addition of more government welfare
    programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had
    to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking
    how she was doing in school.

    Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0
    GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she
    was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which
    left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She
    didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college
    friends because she spent all her time studying.

    Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey
    doing?" She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy
    classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so
    popular on campus, college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all
    the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes
    because she's too hung over."

    Her father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's
    office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend
    who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly
    that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

    The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily
    fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I have worked really hard for my
    grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has
    done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail
    off !"

    The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently,

    "Welcome to the Republican Party."

    Exactly why sometimes it frightens me to think the dems could take over again. I don't mind social programs, but I do mind income redistribution. to make it all "fair". What I think is fair is that if you work hard for it you reap the benefits. I do not like deadbeats! I do not study in college, and I make B's I cannot get mad at those that are making A's because they are studying. The same thing with income. If your working hard you should have more. If you want to work at McDonald's your whole life so you can earn a welfare check I despise you.

    ...I don't think grades relate too well to income. I also don't believe in redistribution of wealth... but some of those things, i.e., higher taxes for the rich, are pretty reasonable. I don't think people should have to pay a higher tax than the rest of us because they are rich, just a tax that is proportionally equal to what everybody else pays. It isn't fair to say "If you earn less than $100,000, you pay a 10% tax on all of it, but if you earn more than $100,000, you pay 10% on only the first $100,000 and 5% on the rest." Different taxes for different income brackets are a bad idea. That's how the government ends up with a deficit.

    I'm not a democrat either... political parties are bad. Vote for the best candidate, not your favourite party.

    Any communists on the forum?

    The problem is they both are crap these days and forget getting a third party in there. It's not going to happen.

    Maxx this country is a far cry from what our founding fathers envisioned. It is a joke to think we are doing it the same way. Also I bet our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves at what is happening in politics today. They give themselves pay raises and do everything to benefit them and screw the people. We get the leftovers.

    That's how the government ends up with a deficit.
    Ridiculous social welfare programs and out of control "defense" spending are how the gov't ends up with a deficit .
