Politics has become real confusing. Take the Republican party. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is a rising Republican star who supports the Republican anti drug theme. Yet Yet Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is quoted as saying marijuana is not a drug according to a British magazine. (He said it was a "leaf.") A spokesman said the governor was only joking, but Legal Pub has its doubts.
Schwarzenegger told GQ (the British edition of the magazine) that he had not taken drugs. However, the former "terminator" acknowledged using marijuana in the 1970s and was shown smoking a joint in "Pumping Iron" the 1977 documentary. So much for Republican consistency. How about the Democrats?
To be a Democrat as long as you follow some simple rules:
1. You have to be for abortion but against capital punishment.
2. You have to believe that businesses create oppression and governments create prosperity.
3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of U.S. citizens are more of a threat than Nuclear weapons in the hands of Chinese, Iran and North Korean communists.
4. You have to believe the same teacher who can't teach fourth graders how to read is somehow qualified to teach those same kids about sex.
5. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.
6. 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.
7. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.
8. You have to believe that standardized tests are discriminatory, but racial quotas and set-asides are not.
9. You have to believe that the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere is because the right people haven't been in charge.
10. You have to believe conservatives telling the truth belong in jail, but a liar and a sex offender should be paroled.
11. You have to believe homosexual parades should be constitutionally protected but Christmas manger scenes prohibited.
12. You have to believe that it's okay to give Federal workers the day off on Christmas Day .........but it's not okay to say "Merry Christmas."
