Welcome to the Republican Party!

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to
be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, 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.

'Wow....what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have
to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my
house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay
you $50. Then I'll take you 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 still
aren't speaking to me.
