Why To Vote Republican -- In 100 Words Or Less

RedState is having a contest, but it is only open for 24 hours and it started this afternoon. A prize will be awarded to the reader who best articulates the best reasons to vote Republican. I think many will come in well under 100 words, with "Speaker Pelosi" or "Majority Leader Reid," but others will, no doubt, include references to tax policy and national security. Check out the entries, or add your own, in the comments at RedState.

Update: Check out winner Liz Mair's entry at Red State!

Why We Should Vote Republic... (Below threshold)

Why We Should Vote Republican-By Field Negro.

First, we should vote republican because the republican party. is the party of Lincoln, and Lincoln freed the slaves. And if Honest Abe did not free the slaves, a negro like me would not be able to vote in the upcoming elections.

Second, we should vote republican, because they offer us tax cuts, and allow us to use our own money to do what we want to with it.

Third, we should vote republican, because it is the party of self reliance and pulling our selves up. It rewards the individual, and not the collective.

Fourth, the republicans are against the taking of a human life, homosexuals marrying, and activist judges. They are for protecting our children, and upholding the high moral standards we have set for ourselves in this country.

Finally, we should all vote republican because republicans support the war in Iraq, and we need to stand up to to Sadaam and the insurgents before we have another 911 on our hands.

Sorry, I think I went over 100 words, but how did I do?

Mitchell:

As you listen to Nancy Pelosi promise to clean up what she calls a "swamp" of congressional problems, remember the following facts from her record:
1. Pelosi voted three times to make a convicted page sexual predator, former Congressman Gerry Studds (D-Mass.), chair of a congressional committee.

2. In 1990, Pelosi voted against censuring Barney Frank for having his live-in boyfriend run a prostitution ring from Frank's apartment.

3. Pelosi raised no objections when Clinton pardoned Democrat Congressman Mel Reynolds (Ill.) who had been convicted of felonies for having had sex with a 16-year-old campaign worker.

The historic Nancy Pelosi is an authentic representative of San Francisco liberal values and hardly has the record to lecture anyone on cleaning up the Congress.

Lee; that wet spot on your keyboard is probably from the sarcasm dripping from my computer :)

I wouldn't vote for any of these rethuglican clowns if my life depended on it. And I know that they want me to believe that it does, but sorry, I will quote a great American, and the father of J.C. Watts no less: Me -a black man- voting for a republican, would be like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders. Seriously, my only regret is that I have but one vote to give to the dems.

Rick Sanitarium wouldn't get my vote if he personally came to my house and gave me a check for what he spends on one of those T.V. spots here in Philly. Well.....maybe if he stood and watched me he would, cause I sure would take the check ;) Because as they young bucks say in the hood: "He is spending some long dollars". And if I voted 100,000 times for him it wouldn't help him. Heck, I can already see the L on his forehead.

feild-negro, voting Democrat because you are female, or a racial minority, or gay or a member of some other group that they claim to represent is a terrible reason. For god's sake at least vote for them because you think they're right about domestic policy or something.

I get just a little bit of that "you ought to be a Democrat" thing because I'm female, as though boobs define how I should view foreign policy or economic issues. It's gotten so I can almost count on being on the opposite of anything presented as "women's issues." The million mom march thing pissed me off, as though my reproductive success was supposed to determine how I felt about gun control?

What *exactly* about being black determines one's views on economic policy? What about being gay determines one's views on international relations?
What about being female determines one's beliefs about social issues?

I'd really like to know.

So how come the troll muirgeo gets first comment? Kos kids assign an operative to tweak us up a bit?

Anyhow, let me do a fisking: (and damn you JB for doing a better one then me)

You are a Multinational Corporation.
I am. At least my wife, I and 2 kids are. Under various right wing regimes even small fry like us can do business in three countries, Canada, USA and Mexico. Commercial freedom is worth a lot to me and I know what liberals will do. They'll break me with regulations and taxes.


You hate animals.
I don't, unless cooked badly.


You are pro-liberty and against a womens right to choose.
Only children and liberals cannot distinguish between liberty and licence. And you need a possessive apostrophe. Understanding the plural would help too.

You are pro-life and support the death penalty.
Bad news chump, lots of Rethuglican right wing murdering bastards are against the death penalty, including me. We on the right often have intellectual, moral and civilized debate about it too.

You want private corporations to make policy.
You are a complete looney. Name one, just one, policy 'made' by a private corporation.

You think it would be neat to be an Orwellian novel character in real life.
You got me there. Napoleon the pig always appealed to me, because....

You believe some people are more equal then others.
I do, I do. For instance, I believe you are mentally equal to a sack of hammers. We say that in Canada - what do you say in the USA?

You like tax cuts that your kids get to pay for.
Economic illiterate. You lefties just cannot accept the "laugher" curve, can ya. Har. Har. Har. Your post comes out just as the US announces a deficit much lower than Bushitler McChimpy predicted. Rots your privates, what?

You think Paris Hilton needs a tax break.
I am smitten so would give her anything, including your arse.

You think Jesus is for War and accumulated wealth.
Buzz, buzz, cognitive dissonance. Right wing Jesus crazy bible thumpers give more to charity and do more good works that leftoids who think charity is forcing the rest of us to pay for their dreams. Many Jesus crazy communities are dirt poor. Think Amish, Mennonites. Call me when you have done anything like the Mennonite Central Committee. Do you even know what that is?

Your favorite character from "It's a Wonderful Life" is Mr. Potter.
I mostly read books and haven't a clue of whom you speak. I see that liberals still get their higher learning from movies and TV. Is Bartlett still president in your dream world?

You can't stand the Middle Class.
True. And? I can't stand anyone. Are you German? What is Mit Der Kapital Letters?

You like Aristocracy
I do. What's not to like. Crazy rich people. Did you mean I like an aristocratic system? Say what you mean sonny boy or post at Kos.

You think the world is 6,000 years old.
I do. At least. Did you mean 'not more than 6,000 years old"? Ditto on precision of expression. Further, the right wing is not all Jesus crazy bible thumpers ya know. But I'd take a billion of them over you.

You're Pro-Torture.
Only for you.

Global warming doesn't concern you.
I live in Canada you self centred idiot. I welcome global warming; I embrace it. What you got against Canadians, Siberians, Northern Chinese, Tibetans (Free Tibet!!!(get a bumper sticker but do fuck-all else!)) Argentineans, Chileans et al., not to mention those in North Dakota, Montana, Alaska u. s. w? Do you even know what u. s. w means? Betcha don't.

You are very afraid.
Uhhhh... no. I'm also a multiple gun owner.

You favorite colors are Black and White.
Very clever and silly horse puckey at the same time.

You think machines are a good way to vote.
Not if they're administered by Liberals, the greatest election fraudsters of all time.

You like authoritarian government.
Not very clever given that the only really authoritarian governments worth talking about were National Socialist and Communist. Oh wait a minute, you mean commies were Nazis? Oh dear.

You do better when people decide for you.
Jesus H. Christ you are hopeless with language, aren't you? I know you mean 'other' people, but why not say so? The left is so slovenly and stupid.

You can believe that corporations create jobs and policies that hurt corporations can hurt workers just as much, that capitalism isn't perfect but provides greater opportunity and mobility than any other system. You can be right and you can be wrong and you can have a difference of opinion if you're white.

If you're black, you have to agree with Democratic economic policy.

But of course if you were born to a single teen age black girl it wouldn't matter because you would still be you and you would succeed because you are better then the typical baby black girl who is born into such circumstances.

Giving that baby girl formula, Head Start, good schools ect doesn't matter because its her fault if she looks all around her at the drugs, and the shootings and has no father...that's HER fault and of no responsibility to people like you because if you where her you'd know exactly what to do to get out of her situation....the fact that she can't figure it out and goes on to have a baby in her teens is her fault....so yeah I think you're wrong cus it wouldn't matter if you were black...you...because your special...would succeed.

muirgeo, darling. You don't have a clue about my childhood. You don't have a clue about the economy of the region where I was born. You have no idea what welfare programs my parents did or didn't qualify for and which ones they accepted and which they refused. You have no idea of the economic realities of the community I was born into. You only know that I said I was white.

What does that say about you?

Liberals like to paint conservatives as wealthy people who think poor people deserve what they get. People who were never in dire economic situations they had no control over. I have to admit that it sells real well. "We care."

And mostly it's rich white folks saying it. "We care." And they make sure that everyone knows how much they "care". It doesn't matter that the things they do don't actually help, or sometimes even make things worse. They've got the moral high ground because they "care".

What *effectively* breaks the cycle of poverty and teen-pregnancy for children of *any* race?

You think there is only one answer to that question? Do you think it's primarily an economic question?

Last election there was a lot of talk about poor people voting "against their economic interests" when they voted Republican. Did it never occur to the people saying that that maybe those voters had a different idea about what their economic interest was?

Posted by: Synova

If you are white that's ALL I need to know. Because as a generalization you were less likely to grow up poor to a single mother as the black child I depicted above.

But you ARE right. It's not race that matters. It's poverty that matters. (Although race is by no means neutral at this point) Being born into poverty gives you a distinct disadvantage with regards to your future prospects. Because of blacks history they are simply statistically more likely to be born into poverty.

But the bottom line is that if you are born into poverty your prospects of advancing/ breaking the cycle are better under a Democratic policies then they are under Republican policies. The evidence for this is absolutely undeniable.


In the 1950's a father could work one job ~ 50/week and support his family. Now 60% of families have both parents working full time and many still are falling behind.

If since the Reagan revolution minimum wage increased at the same rate as top executives then the current minimum wage would be $23.03/ hour...not $5.15/ hour.

So actually any reasonably intelligent poor person has a vested interest in voting democratic. In fact even well to do white guys like me do to because I know my own self interest lies in our country having a strong middle class and strong democratic principals that put people before corporations.......and hint that's not socialism and it IS supportive of capitalism. It's just a recognition that democracy takes precedence over Capitalism. Don't you agree?

general comments.

Not all single mothers are poor.
Not all black children are poor.
Not all families with two parents working really need to.
In the 1950's, many families were two income families.

And finally...

But the bottom line is that if you are born into poverty your prospects of advancing/ breaking the cycle are better under a Democratic policies then they are under Republican policies.

Seeing how long welfare has been in existance there should be no more poor people.

Hey "pucker" shore is nice to see that I am getting under your skin-snicker snicker. You even have almost caught up with "mun-go" as being the link king.

My take on vote Rep. because:

1--It will get rid of castoff from Kos Kiddies such as old "pucker puss" (lee lee), "mun-go" (linkman), "hughie" (beyond words), "preying mantis" (bug eater) and the rest that pretend they are the fix-all for all the world. YAHOO

P. Bunyan:

It's funny reading muirego talk about the poor unwed teenage mothers considering that the left is the direct cause of 95% of them.

The left wants to encourage and enable this type of thing while the right would rather prevent it from happening.

Unfortunately there are no movies or tv shows that explain this concept. You need to read and think to fully understand the root cause of the problem. For anyone interested in really understanding this I'd reccomend:

If you are like Muirego, Lee, Feild-negro, et. al. and believe it is best to just perpetually treat the symptoms and completely ignore the disease than vote "democrat".

If you believe it is better to cure the disease while treating the symptoms, then vote Republican.

Main reason not to vote Republican.

Death toll in Iraq under Hussein 380,000
Death toll in Iraq under Bush 2700 Americans
600,000+ Iraqis

Answer by Republicans: stay the course.

P. Bunyan:

"In the 1950's a father could work one job ~ 50/week and support his family. Now 60% of families have both parents working full time and many still are falling behind."

Again Muirego attempts to project the problem for which the left is derctly responsible onto the right.

The main reason we need two income families today is the culture of litigation that the left had brought to this county. Every single product and service that is availble in the US has an invisible "lawyer" tax added to the cost. Every American is paying several thousands of dollars every year directly to support the left wing trial lawyers who contribute practically nothing to our society.

Michael Moore would be proud of you Hugh!

This statistic came from a study that has a margin of error of 400,000 - 800,000. In other words that statistic is completely meaningless, but it does support the secular socialist worldview so the MSM/lefties will report that meanless statisic without mentioning the inconvent truth that the marging of error is greater than the actual number.

As usual you are not sophisticated enough to understand. I watch The Daily Show for laughs....99% of which have to do with witless Republicans.

Heh heh heh (see that's how they do Alfred E Bush) on the show.

And...so if I subtract 800,000 from 600,000 your point is that here has actually been a plus 200,ooo gain in the Iraqi population? That might actually be true....200,000 additional terrorists might just be true.

Heh heh heh

bryclark21:

Vote democrate, because they will raise minimum wage and help the poor people.

"If since the Reagan revolution minimum wage increased at the same rate as top executives then the current minimum wage would be $23.03/ hour...not $5.15/ hour."

It's economics 101 here! If minimum wage were raised to 23.03/hr then milk would cost $12. How did I come up with this crasy idea? Well overly educated liberals, its called economics.

If a small business owner is paying 3 employees $5/hr (minumum wage) and minumum wage is raised to $7.50 then how does the business owner make back his extra $7.50? Option 1) Fire one employee. Option 2) Raise prices.

The end result: Poor people have no more buying power than they had to begin with, and higher unemployment to go with it. Middle class gets can buy less with its moderate income. I'm voting for this!!!

P. Bunyan:

Hugh,

Based on what you post here, I assumed that you got 100% of your information from fake sources like the Daily [Secular Socialist Propaganda] Show. If I was wrong in my assumption I apologize.

Still, the fact that you posted such as worthless and meanless statistic says volumes about what you believe to be true and tends to lower your credability below zero and into the negatives. (In other words the truth is most likely the exact opposite of what you post.)

The fact that you find the Daily [SSP] Show humorous, shows me that you have a sick and evil mind.

Right on bryclark21! ... (Below threshold)
P. Bunyan:

Right on bryclark21!

I think a better name for the minimum wage would be the "Secular Socialist Barrier to Employment"

If the minimum wage is raised beyond what someone is worth, that person will no longer be able to find employment. Of course that person will also most likely vote for "democrats" so the "democrats" want to raise the minimum wage to increase the number of poor unemployable persons so they can get more votes and power.

A.J.:

"If you are white that's ALL I need to know." Spoken like a true liberal.

Reading comments about which party to vote for really has opened my eyes as to how out of touch with reality liberals are.

I live in a state where we've had dems in authority for the last several years, and in that time my state has gone from being strong economically to being a total mess. And that's not even mentioning the usual party "issues" that have brought the state into a sharp moral decline as well. I admit, I stupidly voted for the democrat last election. Not this time. I just pray that the conservative candidate wins and can clean up the mess our current governor has made of what was once a strong, proud state.

The fact that you don't think the Daily Show if funny is the perfect example of what is wrong with right wing loons. You have no ability to think for yourselves.

You got it backwards, Curly. Those on the right and in the GOP have referred Foley for investigation and are calling for the harshest punishment the law will allow. It was Clinton, a Democrat as I recall, who pardoned a congressman who had sex with a page. Inconvenient facts.

Mitchell:

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.

The Nevada Democrat's deal was engineered by Jay Brown, a longtime friend and former casino lawyer whose name surfaced in a major political bribery trial this summer and in other prior organized crime investigations. . . . Reid hung up the phone when questioned about the deal during an AP interview last week.

All you need to know is that Dummycrats are the Party of National Socialists, the party that propped up the KKK, the party that brought you Political Correctness. Sure, it was just a blowjob, but any man will admit that a blowjob trumps ANYTHING and we cannot think of anything EXCEPT a blowjob when we are:

A. Offered one.
B. Expecting one.
C. Getting one.

and after we get it, we cannot think of anything else but getting another.

In summation, it would have been a good idea if Clinton would have actually done something for national security and got the blowjob AFTER.
