    This is pretty good. Jackie B.

    Politics made simple -

    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 among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to
    support more government programs, in other words 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, sh e 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 need for more government 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

    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 goout 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 wise father asked his daughter, 'Why don't you go to the Dean's office
    and ask him to deduct 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's a crazy idea, and how would that be fair! I've 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.'

    If anyone has a better explanation of the difference between Republican
    and Democrat I'm all ears.

    Jackie B. and Yes, I listening.
