How Can You Identify a Democrat from a Republican?

Believe it or not, there are people in America who have no idea what the difference between a Democrat and Republican are. I found that out when someone asked me and my first reaction was shock that they didn’t know. The woman told me that there could be that much difference between them. I quickly tried to outline the differences and she said she had no idea and that it would be the last time she voted for a Democrat as she usually did.

Sometimes we need a tongue-in-cheek way to explain things, so are several ways to identify a Democrat:

First, here is a song written by Bryan Lewis, titled I Think My Dog’s A Democrat:

Well, I think my dog’s a democrat
And it breaks my heart
To have to say
An ugly thing like that
But there’s a big old pile of evidence
That all points toward the facts
My dog might be a democrat

I pay for all his health care
And I buy everything he eats
I provide him with a place to live
Just to keep him off the streets
But he just acts like he’s entitled
Even tried to unionize the cat
Yeah, I think my dog’s a democrat

He chewed up the Constitution
That I keep on display
And every time Benghazi’s on TV
He looks the other way
(“What difference, at this point, does it make”)
I know he’s a liberal
Even if he won’t admit it
He pooped on my living room rug
And tried to tell me George Bush did it

He ain’t got no papers
And what really gets my goat
Is if he could find to write it down
Well, I know they’d let him vote
Sure we’ve had some good times
He’s been fun to have around
But if he ever barks
About my right to bear arms
I’m gonna have to have him put down

I pay for all his health care
And I buy everything he eats
I provide him with a place to live
Just to keep him off the streets
You’d have to be a Socialist
To ever act like that
So my dog must be a democrat

His behavior has been hidden
His mom might be Mrs. Clinton
Yeah, I think my dog’s a
Flea-bitten democrat

Second explanation comes from one of those emails we all get that are humorous but contain so much truth:

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up.

She said she wanted to be President someday. Both of her parents, Democratic Party members, 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 with pride!

Wow… what a worthy goal!” I said . .

“But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!”

“What do you mean?” she replied .

So I told her, “You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go 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 aren’t speaking to me anymore.

Third, just take a look at what is happening in Venezuela where socialists (here in America they are called Democrats) have caused runaway inflation, widespread corruption, super high taxes and the suppression of the people and loss of most of their freedoms. They have such a wonderful national healthcare system that many pregnant women cross the border into Columbia to have the babies.

This is what Democrats want to do to America. They want to remove the tax cuts that will cost millions of Americans their jobs. They want to provide free Medicare for everyone, but it will cost taxpayers at least $3 trillion a year in increased taxes. Considering there are about 141.2 million people who pay taxes, that comes to an ADDITIONAL $21,246 in taxes per taxpayer a year. What’s free about that?

Some Democrats also want to provide free college tuition to everyone, but who will pay the costs for that?

Democrats are socialists and socialism thrives on making the people the slaves of the federal government.

Republicans want to protect our freedoms and rights. They want to keep people working and be self-sufficient and not dependent on the government. Republicans support the Constitution and the defense of our country, including protecting our borders.

After I explained the differences to the lady who asked, she realized that the difference is not small or grey, but a difference between light and dark, day and night, good and evil and it’s easy to see who is who.
