    While I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors
    stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our
    friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when
    she grew up. She said she wanted to be President some day.

    Both of her parents, Democratic Party members were standing there, so I
    asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would
    do?"

    She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."

    Her parents beamed with pride! "Wow...what a worthy goal!" I said. "But
    you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!" I told her.

    "What do you mean?" she replied.

    So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull
    weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the
    grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the
    $50 to use toward food and a new house."

    She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in
    the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work,
    and you can just pay him the $50?"

    I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

    Her parents aren't speaking to me anymore.

    Why is this in the humor section -
    Its political truth!


    True story:
    Started driving lessons with a teenager.
    Got talking about politics - She said she was a Republican - I asked why. Her response - When I got my first paycheck, I couldn't believe how much they took out in taxes!

    When a teen told me they were Democrat - their reason - there parents were Democrats.

    Which teen is the one who actually thinks?
