How To Be a Good Democrat

1. You have to believe that the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of federal funding.

2. You have to believe that the same teacher who can't teach 4th graders how to read is somehow qualified to teach those same kids about sex.

3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans are more of a threat than U.S. nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Chinese &North Korean communists.

4 You have to believe that there was no art before Federal funding.

5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical, documented changes in the earth's climate, and more affected by soccer moms driving SUVs.

6. You have to believe that gender roles are artificial, but being homosexual is natural.

7. You have to be against capital punishment, but support abortion on demand.

8. You have to believe that businesses create oppression, and governments create prosperity.

9. You have to believe that hunters don't care about nature, but loony activists who have never been outside of San Francisco do.

10. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

11. You have to believe that the military, not corrupt politicians, start wars.

12. You have to believe the NRA is bad, because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.

13. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

14. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, Gen. Robert E. Lee and Thomas Edison

15. You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas and set-asides are not.

16. You have to believe that Hillary Clinton is normal, and really a very nice person.

17. You have to believe that the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried, is because the right people haven't been in charge.

18. You have to believe conservatives telling the truth belong in jail, but a liar and sex offender belonged in the White House.

19. You have to believe that homosexual parades displaying drag, transvestites and bestiality should be constitutionally protected, and manger scenes at Christmas should be illegal

20. You have to believe that illegal Democratic Party funding by the Chinese government is somehow in the best interests of the United States.

21. You have to believe that this letter is part of a vast right wing conspiracy

Also very insulting and highly inaccurate.

Thought this forum was supposed to be about respecting others in spite of differing opinions.

I don't see whats so innaccurate about it. Perhaps for the sake of healthy discussion you could make some points to the contrary of the initial post? As it goes its no more offbase or flame bait then half of the anti-bush/anti-conservative posts circulating here.

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but after that thoughtful, articulate and unbiased list of arguments, I've completely seen the error of my ways.

Sure it was a trolling flamebait post, but if you guys can't make a little fun of yourself you have issues deeper then politics.

There is an element of truth to many of those one liners and I think deep inside you know it.

Many of you posting have posted statements far less factual as your personal truth on this board.

Thanks Mojo, I enjoyed it, but it does belong on the humor board.

Eh, I wish more had come on and helped me turn this into a joke thread. Ooh well.

btw, there's about as much an element of truth in Mojo's statements as there is in mine.

I'm glad this makes Republicans grin, especially after looking at the latest poll numbers.

Hmm, maybe I haven't been here long enough...

I thought this was tongue in cheek, just because there were so MANY outrageously stereotypical statements. I thought it was obvious. Lesson learned.

Hey, I got a chuckle out of it. There's much truth in jest, but much logical fallacy in straw men. It's easy to argue with what we think the other guy thinks.

The problem with the nation isn't left or right. Most americans are centrists. The fact that the right feels the need to denigrate and try to humiliate the left and vice versa is much more a serious problem than that of the actual positions.

What happens when this becomes a 1 party country? can anyone say either communism or facism? Can anyone here tell me what Stalin did once the Bolsheviks took power?

Come on righties....

Your party right now is closer to Stalinistic/Hitleristic policies than the left is........

What happened to Trosky??????

I know how much you like to change history......... BUSH NEVER SAID IMMINENT THREAT....... BUSH NEVER SAID WMD'S......... BUSH NEVER SAID IRAQ WAS IN ON 9/11...........

OK I'll give you the answer because you are probably listening to Limbaugh spew forth his hate and propaganda......

Trosky was killed. Once the revolution was over and the Bolsheviks took power the struggle was more freedom or a tight federal government..... Stalin won...he killed Trosky (who by the way was more popular at that time) and erased Trosky's name from history books.

To take your party's line and hold it as the only way of life and to belittle the other is not only ignorant but suicidal to the nation. Balance not only in power but in every aspect. There is NO BALANCE EVER in a 1 party system.

So take your hatred and choke on it, because obviously your blind patriotism is leading you down that road.
