Welcome to the Republican Party

So, I work with a lady who is VERY Republican. Its hilarious the conversations we get into and fun because we think a lot alike. So, she sent me this story and I laughed so hard at how ironic and true it is, I just have to share!

I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up... She said she wanted to be President some day.

Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, 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.

'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have towait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow thelawn, pull weeds, and sweep my walk and I'll pay you $50. Then, I'll take you 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 thatover 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 still aren't speaking to me.
