Democrats explained - Why they vote as they do...

Original post made by unclehomerr.., Downtown, on Apr 10, 2011

Clipped from Vision to America website.... Painfully true - explains a lot.

"When your friends cannot explain why they voted for Democrats, give them this list. They can then pick their reasons from this "TOP 12″..

Web Link

1. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

3. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

4. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect myself from murderers and thieves.

5. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

6. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

7. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

8. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted Democrat because I think that it's better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle or gopher.

11. I voted Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised "HOPE AND CHANGE".

12. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my butt, it's unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view."

Very well stated and true and we need to take our country back from a Democratic party which has morphed into a party of extreme views much different from the Democratic party of 30 or 40 years ago.

YEA ! It would be even funnier, if it wasnt' so painfully true !! !

Tragically, however, the Republican party has also morphed into a party that would be unrecognizable to conservatives Goldwater and Reagan of 30-40 years ago.

I voted Democrat because I wanted to distance myself as much as I could from those who make such idiotic lists that have little to do with reality.

From their website: "Vision To America is a division of Christian Worldview Communications, LLC", "It is our Vision to see Americans once again recognize that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights and that this Creator is the God of the Bible."

Yeah, sure "unclehomerr", they sound like a group that would have a grasp of politics. They sound like a group that could understand why a person would vote Democratic. In case you don't understand sarcasm...they sound more like a group that would be like #12. I mean, I'm sure they accept that some people don't even believe in the Bible and that some people see no relationship between religion and politics, right? Oops, there I go again with that sarcasm.

@Right: LOL!

Nice catch, Anonymous. Keep it up, uncle homer, you provide entertainment for conservatives and liberals alike, regardless of whether we're laughing with you or at you.

Direct Quote from 'Larry, the cable guy'.

"Even after the Super Bowl victory of the New Orleans Saints, I have noticed a large number of people implying with bad jokes that Cajuns aren't smart. I would like to state for the record that I disagree with that assessment. Anybody that would build a city 5 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone and fill it with Democrats is a damn genius".

Democrats seem to be the only ones who know how to balance a budget. Every time Republicans have taken control in the past 30 years, we've seen deficits soar.

I'm very glad to see Obama taking a page out of Clinton's playbook today--finally talking about some ways to raise revenue to pay for the Republican military orgy of the past nine years.

Ha, ha. I might have thought that some of the extreme conservatives here might try to quote Voltaire, or Pierce, or Russell, or Kant to back up their arguments. But, no, (once again!) I greatly overestimated their intellectual caliber. Quoting "Larry, the cable guy" is a new low. I didn't know anyone actually saw that movie. And, if they did, I didn't think anyone would actually admit it. Garbage In, Garbage Out.

"Every time Republicans have taken control in the past 30 years, we've seen deficits soar."

Yes, an obvious question is: If things were so great when Republicans were in total control just a few years ago (of the White House, Senate, AND the House of Representatives), then how did Obama and other Democrats ever manage to get elected?

The extreme conservatives don't seem to be able to answer that question. They just mumble, look down and shuffle their feet.

Sam, you are correct...the Republicans were doing such a CRAPPY job that we were actually willing to vote in an African American as President!!! And now, conservatives just can't get over that fact so they bash him mercilessly.

Barack is doing such a fine job, 57 states or so he said, now 3 wars and growing, gas approaching 5 bucks a gallon, unemployment around 9 percent, 14 trillion in debt, record low housing prices and falling, just completely not up to the job, simple as that.

Yes, Bush left Obama with the nation in perfect shape and Obama just messed it up. Bush left Obama with a country involved in no wars, a perfectly balanced budget, and an economy in perfect shape.

It makes you wonder: Why did we ever elect a Democrat as President when the country was doing so well under Republican control?

No kidding, Sam. This place sucked before Obama took office. Some people don't want to blame the White guy they voted in...more fun to have a scapegoat.

Too bad the Republicans can't nominate anyone worth voting for. And wasn't it Republicans who voted to bail out all the big banks? Didn't they vote not to reform Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac (yes happened when Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency). Isn't it the Republicans who talk about balancing the budget, but won't touch Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Defense, or taxes and you can't balance the budget without those? Where are the real candidates?

The greatest sin that the left commits is the self-deception that allows them to see themselves as the good guys.

Sam asked: Who is "Lee Reynolds"?

Probably Larry the Cable Guy's spiritual advisor.
