10 Reasons That Your Friends Voted Democrat... Since We Know That "You" Didn't Do It! ;-)

Update - August 20, 2010 - See my blog on this "typical" Obama voter to see just how much trouble America could be in because of ignorant Obama voters...

Based on this next article, that I just read, I thought I'd do my own list, since the article was simply TOO nice! I've added my commentary at the end of each of their 10 reasons.

When your friends can't explain why they voted for Democrats, give them this list. They can then pick a reason.

10. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

LV: Actually, the taxes are much higher than 15%. Depending on which State and City you live in, the total taxes per gallon can run as low as 60 cents a gallon to as high as just under a DOLLAR a gallon... meaning a gallon of gas that costs $2.40 a gallon at the pump, with 60 cents in taxes, would cost only $1.80 a gallon without the taxes, so the 60 cents of taxes is a 30% tax rate on that gallon. That same gallon of gas in a city/state with a dollar a gallon of taxes would have a 50% tax rate.  These already ridiculously high taxes may change upward soon with a new round of tax increases by cities, states and Washington, D.C., because instead of cutting the size of government to be in line with the shrinking economy, goverments continue to grow by leaps and bounds.  Right now, just the federal tax is 18.7 cents per gallon, not counting the taxes they charge on the oil as it's extracted from the wells.... which runs as high as 18% the last I checked so it's taxes on top of taxes... whereas the so-called BIG oil companies are making around 4 cents per gallon profit and then they have to pay income taxes on that amount. When gas was $1.25 a gallon, not that long ago, the effective tax rate would have been enarly 100% since without the 60 cents in taxes, the gas would have been 65 cents a gallon.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

LV: If folks really believe that after all the news stories that have been done showing how often and how much government wastes their money, then these folks should be locked up in an asylum as they have completely lost their minds.

8. I voted Democrat because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

LV: Political Correction and the LSM have done almost as much to harm Freedom Of Speech than ALL of the communist, fascist or socialist dictators combined. OK.. I know that's not really true but at least when folks were being muted by a dictator, they knew who the enemy was and it was uaually only the government... but with political correctness brain-washing so many college students, the media and others, the enemy isn't as easily defined or identified.

7. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

LV: Actually, the inner cities, which are most likely to vote democrat see and live in many crime infested neighborhoods and have to cower in fear in their homes to avoid being in contact with the criminals that own their streets. They don't trust the police to protect them so they just live like prisoners in their own homes. As far as being irresponsible, well that happens to them because they rely on the government too much for running their lives... the same government that is miserably failing them at every step... instead of taking responsibility for their own lives.

6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

LV: I've talked many times, about how meteoroligists can't predict tomorrows weather in a specific city or the path of a hurricane in a specific region... and yet we are supposed to believe they have a clue about what is going to happen to the world's climate over the next 10 or 20 years. The Climate-Gate email scandals have PROVEN that global warming or climate change or whatever their name-du-jour is... IS PURE BULLSHIT!!!

5. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies through abortion so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

LV: Well, I think I've made my points so far, so my answer to this and the next four are painfully obvious. If you want more details, look down the list of Labels and Articles to the left and read more of what I think, know and feel.

4. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted where the sun doesn't shine that it is unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view.
