Why I Voted For a Democrat

When your family or friends cannot explain why they voted for a Democrat, they should be given this list.
1. I voted for a 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.
2. I voted for a Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
3. I voted for a Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.
4. I voted for a 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, rapists, thugs, and thieves.
5. I voted for a 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 disappear in ten years because of Global Warming if I don’t start driving a Prius or a Chevy Volt.
6. I voted for a Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
7. I voted for a Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.
8. I voted for a 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.
9. I voted for a Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution regularly to suit some fringe folks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
10. I voted for a Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill for our own because it might upset some useless endangered beetle, gopher, or fish.
11. I voted for a Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE.”
12. I voted for a Democrat because my head is so firmly buried in my butt that it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.


  1. Nice picture of irRational Nation

    1. You'd be the dude in for the free stuff. Then you'd be bitching because it was the wrong color, size, or flavor.

  2. I voted for a Democrat because I am dumber than a bag of hammers. That, and I hate America.

  3. Just a wee bit partisan, perhaps, but I'm sure it plays well in Peoria, which is, of course, the acid test for validity along with the absolute certainty that Boston, New York, Washington, DC, Chicago and the Left Coast will despise, dismiss and reject it with viciously venomous vehemence.

    BRAVO! Great fun! Thanks.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. Happy Christmas to you and yours.

  5. Considering the content of the post Lisa this might interest your readers.

    Indeed Great Fun freeThinke!!!

    1. ^Completely predictable response from leftist slug^

    2. A hell of a lot less predictable that your predictability as an idiotic right wing piece of scum.

      Responding to the above commenters tone in kind and upped the ante.

      Now RRR, have your fun, come on, I know ya got it in ya. Give it all yua got. You can do it. Come opn now, the other sock puppets are waiting, looking for your fine leadership Come on now, get set, get ready, GO!

    3. As I've told you many times - Shaw and her leftist minions will NEVER accept you no matter how anti-American and cliched leftist you get. You are what your hero Lenin called "useful idiot".

      They are using you son.


    4. At least your pathetic delusions and fabrications keep your feeble mind occupied RRR.

      Now get to work hallucinating and fabricating.

  6. Will no one rid us of this meddlesome Registered Nurse?

    The Canterbury Cathedral Historical Society

  7. Interesting FreeThinke, coming from the proprietor of the Smoke and Mirrors gallery.


  8. What's scary is there are many loons on the right who believe this kind of crap fed to them by the corporatocracy who get them to bend over so, so easily.

    They'd rather see a family member die from being cut off by an insurance company than see The ACA survive. They'd rather pay more taxes than see corporations lose their loopholes and off shore shelters.

    Idiots, all.

    1. Cororatiopns don't pay tax. Tax is just a cost of doing business. It is a cost component like the electricity bill. IN order to make a profit, all taxes have to be recouped somehow in the price they charge for their product or service. Every time you buy a product or service, You pay their tax for them. So, who is the idiot - who can't understand such a simple concept?

    2. Oh and the ACA? Wait until you actually need healthcare and you have to wait for some group of assholes to "review your case" and decide if you actually get any. Get back to me when that happens to you K? You do know that the vast majority of the ACA's evil hasn't even been implemented yet right? A bunch of it will come down in 2015 - get a good grip now.

  9. Kid it's hopeless trying to deal with ignorant people. They will have to find out the hard way as usual . The ACA is only funded for 6 years,after that no clue how to pay for it so it will be done with rationed care,hey but it's free.....not

  10. The meme lives on.

    But the bone heads in the house passed the CRomnibus spending bill to fund the government.

    But we got to hear adle brain Gohmert ramble like Daffey Duck on Hannity.

    All in all a s*ity day.

  11. By rolling back some of The Dodd Frank Bill

    1. Yeah, a big mistake. That and relaxing rolls on derivatives. Oh vey are the republicans dumb. But Boner wanted the bill for many reasons. Obama won. He's much smarter than the repubs give him credit for.

      If that doesn't make sense contact Boner's office.

  12. They didn't want a showdown where Obama would use his bully pulpit to trash the congress aka Republicans

  13. Hey, babbling Bachmann is babbling while she flashes her toothy grin on Hannity.

    Wow, Hannity sure brings in the "best" of the repubs.

  14. Hey Lisa, you catch Rove (y) the spinmeister on Hannity the Bugle Boy tonight? Some twisty pretzel eh?

  15. Too bad, that dude can really spin, like a top. Crazy pretzel logic. But that's the man with the white chalk board.

  16. The problem with Dodd Frank is it affects small businesses who can't afford all those regulations. It's an uninteded casualty

  17. Obama isn't smarter,he's just slick as a snake. And that is not how we should operate by outsmarting/outslicking one another

    1. Tell that to the boys and girls at republican/teapublican operating headquarters. When are you going to understand it's all about winning the next election. The politicians are play the people as big corporations and the oligarchs laugh all the way to rhe bank.

      The people have allowed the politicians to outslick them and are paying the price. We're nothing more than pawns to the Koch and Soros types running the show.

      So Lisa, pick your poison, either way the story ends poorly. The people behind the curtain are banking on you.

  18. We have to see how it plays out

    1. Because collectively we're too damned dumb to figure it out. We trust the shyster and slickster politicians who has been bought by the big money special interests to do it for use.


  19. This comment has been removed by the author.

  20. I’d like to know why the Two Faced Liberal Registered Nurse speaks out of both sides of his mouth?

    He speaks one way here about Obama and then Kisses both Cheeks of the Wicked Witch of the Left’s ass.

    They have a name for pathetic, people like that, it's called Hypocrites!
    but that Slug POS wil doing just about anything to please his Leftist buddies.!

    Personally, I think he's a prick. Anyone with a half of a brain, can recognize that Obama is and always was a liar who would say and do anything to sell his Leftist, Marxist, agenda and policies. And when you take away his narcissism, you are left with a lazy, thoughtless, inept, unaccomplished and deceptive liar ... this is what we, the American public elected President or should I say a self-appointed King/Emperor ...... and twice yet!!! . What does this say about us? Did we actually believe that anti-America, racist, anti-Semitic LIAR who told us that he sat in a church for twenty years and never heard that Effing Scumbag, Rev. Jeremiah ( God Damn America ) Wright. AKA Obama's Mentor.

  21. This country is going to Hell in a Hand Basket and very quickly. If one loves America, one must hate Liberalism/Progressivism, the whole Democrat Party as it exists today..

    No two ways about it. Every day, in every way, they strike a blow against this once great nation.

    The Deceiver in Chief don't need to worry. Obama’s supporting voters will stick by him no matter what. They are that "Stupid". And because the president is black.
    No hatred here, just the facts !

    One only has to watch Dianne Frankenstein's repulsive, and disgusting, "CIA" report. To see the liars from the Left attacking America again, it should be very obvious.

  22. You haven't the brain power to understand anything beyond what you have been programmed to accept by your masters IAGNB.

    Obama is who he is, I don't like all his politics or philosophy and the one of whom you speak so disparaging and disrespectful of knows this. I didn't vote for the man either time but the American people elected him twice.

    People of your character (I should say lack of) who just make up sh*t about Obama and disrespect both him and his family without any thought to facts and or truth are pathetic. Led around by the nose by idiots without a clue you lack the intelligence to think for yourself... Too bad really. but is what it is.

  23. If one loves America, one must hate Liberalism/Progressivism, the whole Democrat Party...

    No TPC, if one loves America one must love and have a burning desire for the truth. As well as equal opportunity to succeed and just treatment under the law.

    I note you make reference to the President being black. Must bother you some that he is a man of color eh TPC?

    "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques" or torture is as un-America as anything could be. Just ask Senator McCain who knows a bit about torture himself having been tortured by the Vet Cong. Besides, any government who will use "advanced interrogation techniques" or torture against it's foreign enemies will use the same against individuals at home it determines are enemies of the state.

    America will cease being a great nation when it finally forgets or fails to live up to the principles of equality, justice, rule of law, common decency, respect, and turns it's eyes away from reason.

    Your rant is indicative of what ails America.

  24. Bravo Ms. Political Chic, for saying it EXACTLY as it is.

  25. Another sheeple speaks with enphasis. Yahoo as the political ideologues you listen to work hard at keeping their followers in line and not thinking for themselves.

  26. If that's the list for Democrats, I'd hate to see the one for Republicans!


  27. Replies
    1. Well let's run it! It's much more factual.

      1. If you want to make it harder for women to get contraceptives, vote Republican. Senate Republicans recently introduced a bill that would do just that.

      2. If you agree with John Boehner’s view that people who are unemployed are out of work because they’re “lazy,” you’ll want to vote Republican.

      3. If you like the Citizens United ruling that defined money as speech and thus embedded corruption at the heart of our political system, you should vote Republican.

      4. If you don’t believe man-made climate change is real, and if you support the Koch brothers over the majority of the world’s scientists, vote Republican.

      5. If you want politicians tinkering with Social Security in ways that will inevitably include further attempts to privatize this system, you should vote Republican.

      6. If you support obstructionism in the halls of Congress, vote Republican.

      7. If you think working people have too much influence, and corporate CEOs don’t have enough, you should vote Republican.

      8. If you think fracking poses no threats to our environment, and poses no danger to precious groundwater supplies, vote Republican.

      9. If you think hiring people who don’t believe in government to work for you in government is the best way to elect dedicated public servants, you should vote Republican.

      10. If you favor big subsidies for corporations and wealthy agri-biz operators but think extending unemployment benefits is likely to discourage incentive, vote Republican.

      11. If you think government shouldn’t interfere with business and industry, but government should interfere with women’s most private and personal decisions, you should vote Republican.

    2. 12. If you think the growing gap between rich and poor is good for this country, you should vote for the people who have largely been responsible for creating that gap and vote Republican.

      13. If you think taking more than 50 votes to overturn the Affordable Care Act was the best use of congressional time and energies, you should, of course, vote Republican.

      14. If you think people like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney exercised better judgments on matters of national defense than their successors have, then vote Republican.

      16. If you allow your reading of the bible to override science, vote Republican.

      17. If you think climate change is a hoax concocted by people who simply want to damage the capitalist system, vote Republican.

      18. If you form your opinions exclusively from what you hear on Fox News, you’ll vote Republican.

      19. If you think the militarization of American police forces is a good thing, and that American cops are in need of tanks, grenade launchers, and armored personnel carriers, you’ll want to vote Republican.

      20. If you believe gay marriage should be illegal and that a woman doesn’t deserve the same pay as a man for the same work, then vote Republican.

      21. If you believe Planned Parenthood, National Public Radio, and PBS should be defunded, vote Republican.

      22. If you think college students should pay higher interest rates for loans than big banks do, then vote Republican.

      23. If you believe that shutting down the government helped us in any way, vote Republican.

      24. If you honestly think the Republican efforts to politicize Ebola and win votes by spreading fear is helpful and responsible leadership, you’ll surely want to vote Republican.

      25. If you think black people have been rendered worthless and dangerous by overly generous Democratic Party giveaways to the unworthy, that’s probably the only reason you’ll need to vote Republican.

      26. If you’ve nodded your head in agreement to most anything ever said by Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert, and thought to yourself, “that’s one smart dude,” you’ll vote Republican.

      27. Finally, if you live in the 1st Congressional District of California, and you can watch a video of any of the three debates between Congressman Doug LaMalfa and his challenger, Heidi Hall, and you can still come away thinking he is better qualified to serve as your representative, then you’ll probably vote for any Republican over any Democrat, no matter the issues, or the qualifications of the respective candidates.

  28. you missed the most common reason why people voted democrat.

    because the republican was a complete lunatic while the democrat was only a simpleton.

    1. Sorry, Billy, it's the other way 'round. The results are the same ether way, however.

      No matter where we turn it's either "Stand and deliver" or "Bend and spread."

    2. Not. Do your research with blinders off.

      Keep bending and spreading FreeThinke, the oligarchs and the corpocracy love it!

      Time for a their party revolt... fiscal responsibility, personal responsibility, stop meddling in other nations affairs, put the MIC on a diet, and revamp the
      ACA for starters.

  29. Here's a Classic (and unlike this post, it's full of facts):

    Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican
    Monday, 10 October 2011 16:23
    Print PDF

    Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

    All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

    Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

    Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn’t think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

    Its noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

    Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time.

    Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republican’s would still be sitting in the dark)

    He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.

    He turns on a radio talk show, the host’s keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. (He doesn’t tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day) Joe agrees, “We don’t need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I’m a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have”.

  30. And more black people are in poverty thanks to democrat leaders
    Thank you for the EPA. Mr Nixon. Sorry Obama is using it to further destroy the economy.
    Thanks for the welfare program Mr Johnson .Sorry the democrats helped to make it a way of life for so many while destroying the Nuclear family and for votes

    1. Generalities and the long drink of kool aid.

  31. I recently asked my neighbors’ little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, are 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 with pride.
    ’Wow…what a worthy goal.’ I told her, ‘But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that! You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, 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 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 Conservatism.’
    Her parents still aren’t speaking to me.

    1. Whether strictly "factual" or not, doesn't matter. Either way this story provides an excellent object lesson -- an illustration of one of many basic PRINCIPLES that ought to be taught from first grade on, but are being deliberately ignored and plowed under the sod by the agenda-driven Leftist Educational Establishment that is determined to transform our once great nation into yet-another dreary, oppressive, poverty-stricken People's Republik.

    2. In other words right indoctrination is okay eh FreeThinke?

      While I happen to agree with much you say I cannot and do not accept stifling opposing views simply because they do not meet the approved agenda.

      Nor did the Classical Liberals I admire FreeThinke. Somehow the right, especially the tea party type seem to have forgotten this.

      Merry Christmas and Happy and Prosperous New Year.

    3. LISA! Are you KIDDING ME? That deserves a post in and of itself. FABULOUS thinking on your feet. And those parents don't even GET IT? WOW!!

    4. Z, how dumb are yu?

      They went down to Home depot, found an illegal hanging out and paid him $10.

      You really don't know squat about the way the world works, do you?

  32. Barrack and MOOchele look at it differently. After all they be the King and da Queen!

  33. Can someone tell me what's wrong with being a good human being and respect your neighbor’s and the people tho represent the authorities such as the police? Why do these bleeding heart Democrats/Liberals/Progressives, support violent thug/gang-banger/looter/thief/drug dealer/pimp/absentee fathers/rapist.?

    I think that the Black youth of today would be best served if they found other Role Models.

    Black Football and Basketball Players, who punch out their wives, girlfriends, Whip their little Children = Good
    White Police Officers, who enforce the law and arrest Bad Guys = BAD .

    I guess that looting, stealing, raping, and "burn t he bitch down” is OK.
    Does Al Sharpton, etc. come to mind?

  34. " ... I knew that druggie’s disgrace was the product of Joe Bite Me's loins from the get go."


It isn't only Biden's son

    But also that of Gore.

    Raising kids is not well done,

    When you're a political whore.

    Poor Dubya Bush was once a lush

    Jeb's daughter was the same

    The rush to push each Bush's tush

    Led oft to grief and shame.

    Then, all of Lincoln's children died

    Save Robert, who grew fat,

    And when his grieving mother cried

    Showed such compassion that

    He put her in a madhouse ––

    The dirty, stinking rat!

    Life marred by high ambition

    Is rarely very pleasant,

    So stay home, enjoy coition,

    And live well as a peasant!
