Why would anyone be a Democrat?
Joe Andrew

Posted on 05/28/2003 10:59:50 AM PDT by DDay today

How do you know if you're a Democrat? If you've ever met someone down on his or her luck, and you wanted to help, then you're a Democrat. If you have ever seen the look in a child's eyes of fear, of hunger, or of aspiration, and wanted to help, then you're a Democrat. If you have ever wanted leadership that had common sense, that cared about the future, and that wanted progress over partisanship, then you're a Democrat. If you believe that we are better off working together than apart, then you're a Democrat. If you believe in community, opportunity, and responsibility, then you are a Democrat.

I am a Democrat because Democrats fight for, and not just talk about, the American dream. We work to ensure that children do not have to experience fear, neglect, nor hunger, but instead grow up with the hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. We understand that in working together we are greater than the sum of our parts. Democrats strive to be courageous leaders devoted to progress, rather than be roadblocks in the name of partisan battles. We are the party of diversity and inclusion, of innovation and inspiration, and of energy and optimism.

I am a Democrat because we welcome those who are downtrodden, neglected, and cast aside just the same as we welcome those who have the promise of a brighter future set in their dreams. I am a Democrat because we welcome you whether you're black or white or brown or red or a nice shade of purple. We welcome you whether you pray at a church or a mosque or a temple or a synagogue or at your kitchen table. We welcome you whether you're young or old or just don't want to tell your age. We welcome you regardless of what gender you are or what gender you want to hold hands with. I am a Democrat because we don't care where you are today, but where you dream you want to be tomorrow. This is the spirit of our Party and it's why I am proud to be a Democrat.

How do you know if you're a Democrat? If you've ever met someone down on his or her luck, and you wanted to help, so you put a gun to some other person's head and took their money in order to give it to the first person, then you're a Democrat.

I'm a conservative Republican. I help people help themselves, not rely on others to do everything for them.

This is utter hooey. Replace all the above "Democrat" with "American".

The only difference is in this sentence - dems want to help using somebody else's money, forced from them.
What's the point?

Hint - it would help them a lot more if you were actually interested in educating them instead of indoctrinating them.

Joe Andrew...slightly less stupid and grating than Terry McAuliffe.

(Which, as much as his helping to botch the 2000 campaign, is probably why they fired him.)

Yes, but this article is proof that a Republican was able to find a job for Jayson Blair writing material for dem outfits after the racist NYT fired him for some very minor and very common mistake.

Long on pretty words and sentences. Short on substance and meaning.

Anyone can roll out and say "I love this and that". You don't really explain how being a Democrat makes you any different in that respect.

A farmer was out working in his field one day when a carload of democrats came flying by. They were going too fast for the curve and turned over in the ditch.

Later the sheriff stopped by and asked the farmer if he has seen the car. "Yep" replied the farmer. "Where are they?" asked the sheriff. "Over there", replied the farmer pointing to the ditch filled with fresh dirt.

"You buried them?" asked the sherrif, "Were they still alive?" Replied the farmer, "They said they were, but you know how those people lie."

Why would anyone be a Democrat?
Because they want government to give them something they have not earned. That's the only function the Dems serve. They've become a great big political machine, in the tradition of Tammany Hall/Daley etc. And that's it....votes for resources or power.

Oh, is that ozone I smell?:

And if you correctly realize that the way to fix these problems is NOT to mail a few Benjamins to DC, then you're a Republican.

Hey Troll: You can also talk about Democrat support of higher taxes, sucking up to corrupt unions, supporting racial discrimination (aka "affirmative action"), appeasing dictators, burdensome regulation, hypocricy (Robert KKK Byrd, for starters)....

No you are a democrat because it feeds your need to feel superior as a compensation for your deep seated insecurities.

You are democrat because you confuse personal liberty with bigotry. In fact were it not for democrats' smugness about race, there would be no viable democrat party.

You are a democrat because in your self righteousness you are blind to the venomous hatred you spawn while you profess to love the very groups you have turned one on another.

Damn your eyes for the hypocrite you are.
