Comparison Democrats vs Republicans...

From a friend:

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. She

considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, but her father was a

staunch Republican.

One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his

opposition to high taxes and welfare programs.

He stopped her and asked how she was doing in school. She answered

that she had a 4.0 GPA, but it was really tough. She had to study all

the time and never had time to go out and party. She didn't have time

for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of

spending all her time studying. On top of that, the part-time job her

father insisted she keep left absolutely no time for anything else.

He asked, "How is your friend Mary?"

She replied that Mary was barely getting by.  She had a 2.0 GPA, never

studied, but was very popular on campus, didn't have a job, and went

to all the parties. She was always complaining about not having any

money, but didn't want to work. She often didn't show up for classes

because she was hung over.

Dad then asked his daughter why she didn't go to the Dean's office and

request that 1.0 be taken off her 4.0 and given it to her friend who

only had a 2.0.  That way they would both have a respectable 3.0 GPA.

Then, she could also give her friend half the money she'd earned from

her job so that her friend would no longer be broke.

The daughter angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair. I worked

really hard for my grades and money, and Mary just loafs. Why should

her laziness and irresponsibility be rewarded with half of what I've

worked for?"

The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
