A Father & Daughter Discussion

Think about this as you read it!!!

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


Based on the Lectures that she had participated in,

and the occasional chat with a professor,

she felt that her father had for years harbored an


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 go out 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; 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.

If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on,

this is a great test!

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.

If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.

If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products

banned for everyone.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out,

he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host,

he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don’t like

be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer,

he doesn’t go to church.
A liberal non-believer

wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

(Unless it’s a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative reads this,

he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.

A liberal will delete it because he’s “offended”.

Well, I forwarded it to you.
