YOU CAN BE A DEMOCRAT - Virtually anyone can be a Democrat; just simply quit thinking and vote that way. But if you want to be a GOOD Democrat, there are some necessary prerequisites. Compare the list below and see how you rate.

1. You have to believe 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 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 yuppies 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 from Seattle do.

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

11. You have to believe 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, George Washington or Thomas Edison.

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

16. You have to believe that Hillary Clinton is really a lady.

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 belongs 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 is somehow in the best interest of the United States.

VOTE DEMOCRATIC... It's easier than getting a job!

Democrats Jeer at Boy Scout Guests

Friday, Aug. 18, 2000
Eagle Scouts have earned the highest rank in scouting. When a group of them took the stage at the Democratic National Convention, delegates booed.
Convention-goers knew in advance the Scouts were coming, and they were ready for them.

"We Support Gay Boy Scouts," read the previously prepared signs they waved as they shouted derision at the uniformed Scouts with all their hard-won merit badges.

The Scouts, who had been invited by organizers of the Democratic convention to make their podium appearance Thursday, appeared shocked.......

16 steps to be a Republican:

1. You have to believe that the evolution is a myth that shouldn't be taught in schools, despite the evidence of biochemistry and the fossil record.

2. You have to believe that there is no causal link between legal, easily-obtainable handguns and high murder rates.

3. You have to believe that global temperatures are completely unaffected by fossil fuel emissions, that the best way to save the national forests is to allow logging companies to cut down old-growth timber, and the best way to save endangered species is to allow trophy hunters and wildlife traders to import more of them.

4. You have to believe that homosexuality is evil (despite the fact that it occurs in nature) and that women should stay at home to cook and bear children.

5. You have to believe that businesses never purposely hurt anyone to make money.

6. You have to believe that inherited wealth is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

7. You have to believe that war is an acceptable solution to any economic or social problem.

8. You have to believe that everyone should support the troops - except when it comes to paying them.

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

10. You have to believe that taxes are for poor and middle class people, not the rich.

11. You have to believe that affirmative action is wrong, while still supporting discrimination against minorities.

12. You have to believe that the only reason supply-side economics hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried is because the right people haven't been in charge.

13. You have to believe liberals telling the truth belong in jail, but a liar and draft-dodger belongs in the White House.

14. You have to believe that the Ten Commandments should be displayed in every public building regardless of the fact that not everyone in America is a Christian.

15. You have to believe that illegal Republican Party funding by corporations is somehow in the best interest of the United States.

16. You have to believe that the media are biased toward liberals, despite the fact that all the major media outlets are owned by ultra-rich conservatives.

I am already sick of this whole election year crap. All I see is this bashing crap from both sides. "Democrats are costing you your jobs to save a turtle" "Republicans are taking away your freedom and only care about big business" blah, blah blah. Then there's the third party candidate who means well but a vote for them is a vote against the democrat or republican you would have voted for otherwise since a third party candidate doesn't have a chance in he!! of winning.

I see these bashing post and have to post the other half just to play devils advocate whether I agree of not. "fair and balanced" forums :-)

I will continue to try and dig any useful information I can find out of all the rhetoric up until the election but at this point I would have to agree with you. I don't know if I could vote for either candidate this year. Here is Utah we already know the Republican candidate will take the state so a vote for a third party candidate will at least give me my small say in what I believe. Assuming I find a third party candidate I agree with.

<font color="blue"> </font color> Not necessarily a myth...let's just discuss both options

2. You have to believe that there is no causal link between legal, easily-obtainable handguns and high murder rates.

<font color="blue"> </font color> That's like saying knives and forks cause obesity

3. You have to believe that global temperatures are completely unaffected by fossil fuel emissions, that the best way to save the national forests is to allow logging companies to cut down old-growth timber, and the best way to save endangered species is to allow trophy hunters and wildlife traders to import more of them.

<font color="blue"> </font color> Yes, my little Saturn contributes to global warming...just not as much as the hot air coming out of Washington!

4. You have to believe that homosexuality is evil (despite the fact that it occurs in nature) and that women should stay at home to cook and bear children.

<font color="blue"> </font color> It occurs in nature?????????

5. You have to believe that businesses never purposely hurt anyone to make money.

<font color="blue"> </font color> And government is more concerned with the people than with keeping power and getting re-elected

6. You have to believe that inherited wealth is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

<font color="blue"> </font color> Neither is more important, but the government shouldn't be entitled to it all when you die, either.

7. You have to believe that war is an acceptable solution to any economic or social problem.

<font color="blue"> </font color> I think this statement is making a major contribution to global warming.

8. You have to believe that everyone should support the troops - except when it comes to paying them.

<font color="blue"> </font color> Wasn't it the Democrats who cut the military budget?

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

<font color="blue"> </font color> Personally, I don't think a whole lot of either group

10. You have to believe that taxes are for poor and middle class people, not the rich.

<font color="blue"> </font color> Why does the top 10% income earners pay 80% of taxes?

11. You have to believe that affirmative action is wrong, while still supporting discrimination against minorities.

<font color="blue"> </font color> If all men are created equal, maybe ALL should be treated that way...no special favors for ANYONE.

12. You have to believe that the only reason supply-side economics hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried is because the right people haven't been in charge.

<font color="blue"> </font color> OOPS...How was the economy during the Reagin years?

13. You have to believe liberals telling the truth belong in jail, but a liar and draft-dodger belongs in the White House.

<font color="blue"> </font color> TRUTH??????? "I did not have sex with that woman!"

14. You have to believe that the Ten Commandments should be displayed in every public building regardless of the fact that not everyone in America is a Christian.

<font color="blue"> </font color> They don't need to be displayed in every building...just don't tell me my kid can't pray in school. If you don't want to, then don't! Just because you don't believe it, don't tell me I can't.

15. You have to believe that illegal Republican Party funding by corporations is somehow in the best interest of the United States.

<font color="blue"> </font color>
And the Democrats are lilly white in this area?

16. You have to believe that the media are biased toward liberals, despite the fact that all the major media outlets are owned by ultra-rich conservatives. <hr /></blockquote>

Maybe I can sue the pool hall for all the money I've spent on table time over the last 20 years.
They are responsible for my billiards addiction.

Handguns are easily obtainable?
Not in Cali. It takes 15 days to get one.
Unless you buy it off the street where the non-law abiding scums do business.

Most violent crimes with a handgun are handguns bought off the street over here in Cali. Who is gonna shoot someone with a bullet that can be linked to them?

It is a fact that gun crimes have increased in England since they took the guns out of the hands of honest law-abiding citizens. If the criminal knows his victim does not have a gun, he is more apt to illegally use his to get what he wants.

It is also a fact, that criminals do not obey the law. So what makes anyone think, more stringent gun laws would matter one iota to a criminal?
