I was talking to a friend of mine's little girl the other day. I asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up and she replied, 'I want to be President!' Both of her parents are liberal Democrats and were standing there. So then I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?'
She replied, 'I'd give houses to all the homeless people.'
'Wow - what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'You don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where this homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward a new house.'
Since she is only 6, she thought that over for a few seconds. While her Mom glared at me, she looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?'
And I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'
Her folks still aren't talking to me.

A little political humor
So, this forward has been making the rounds, but I have to put it out there too. I would first like to say that I do not specifically claim a political party myself. I am just someone who loves Jesus, the humans he created in his image (especially the defenseless ones) and the world he created for us to care for. IN THAT ORDER. I try to vote with those things in mind. With that being said, I thought this was very very funny.
Welcome to the Party... this is not my story- got it in an email....
