    Questions For Your Liberal Friends!

    When your "friends" cannot explain why they voted for Democrats, give them this list. They can then pick their reasons from this "TOP
    11"...


    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 me 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".

    • Thank you so much for posting this. I now see the error of my Democratic voting ways and shall vote for Ron Paul from now on.

    • Do you even own MRO? I doubt it, you seem unemployable. Your ignored.

    • I voted republican because, they love war, got rid of all those nasty "weapons of mass destruction", deregulate every thing,let wall street do anything they want, poison the envirment, and belive capitalism solves all of our problems.all in the name of patriotism and love of country. What i fought for in 1967- 70 is a total joke, my only regret is you weren't with me . I assure you , you have no conception of what "bad" really is.

      • Greece’s Financial Crisis Explained:

        
Years of unrestrained spending, cheap lending and failure to implement financial reforms left Greece badly exposed when the global economic downturn struck. This whisked away a curtain of partly fiddled statistics to reveal debt levels and deficits that exceeded limits set by the eurozone.

        USA’s Financial Crisis Explained:

        Years of unrestrained spending, cheap lending and failure to implement financial reforms left the USA badly exposed when the global economic downturn struck. This whisked away a curtain of partly fiddled statistics to reveal debt levels and deficits that exceeded limits set by the US Congress.

        If you will take notice, all of the bankrupt states and large cities in the US are and have been run by Democrats.......

        Our Great Republic is now experiencing the present financial crisis and overwhelming debt because of 40 years of incremental progressive liberalism supported by the Democratic Party and their supporting Unions.
