So the moral of the story is: Republicans are jerks and Democrats are idiots?

If that's the case I'll go vote for that funny little guy from Texas with the big ears. No, not Bush, the other one. Ol' what's his name... Parrot? Perro? Perot, that's it.

Actually, I think I'll just submit a write in vote for Mr. T. His 'pity the fool' platform may be just what this country needs.




Truthfully, I don't get involved in political discussions on message boards. However, I do believe in making fun of all parties equally.

Only because I am curious...

Equally Swifty? Are you an independent? Undecided?
Why equally?
Do you always balance the two equally (with regard to jokes or policy)? Is one party ever at any one time ever right, the other wrong (and are you ever influenced accordingly as to tip the scale in any direction)?
I voted for Ross Perot in 1992.
The first (and last) time I ever voted outside the Republican Party.
I thought the man had decent values and was of good moral character (and his no-nonsense shoot from the hip approach to issues was very appealing), but in hindsight I know now that a third party independent as Commander in Cheif would do disaster in Washington (nothing would have ever been accomplished) because they are liked by neither majority/minority party in Congress. And I believe we need both parties, each to certain extents.

Not a bash. No right or wrong. Just curious as to why some folks think in certain ways... :wave: :thumbsup:

Oh, simple really. I figure we have both Republicans and Democrats here. So if I make fun of one, I try to crack a joke at the other party's expense too, so as not to offend anyone in particular. As for my own political leanings, I am an Independent.
