So, we pay a lot in taxes every year, despite paying quarterly and me withholding extra from my paycheck. Yet, we are not rich. If I become republican, will I instantly be rich? Can I start taking from the 47% who have been freeloading off of me all these years, or should I just be asking my husband this stuff instead?

Also, I am pregnant. Why am I still at work, and furthermore, why am I wearing shoes?

When you become Republican, you're instantly on your way to getting rich. If you don't get rich, it's either because you weren't Republican enough or because liberals.

Whoa, careful now. That sounds a lot like 47% thinking. Remember, a pregnancy is a wonderful burden for a woman, not an entitlement program. If your husband can't afford to pay for you to sit around growing babies...maybe you should have thought about that before you married him. But you're married now, and those bonds are sacred (if they weren't, I'd suggest you become the 2nd wife to a more successful man), so personal responsibility means working until the water breaks (you could probably work a few hours after that, but better to be on the safe side).

I think she might be having an anchor baby... Maybe even twins, to make sure.

So, there's all this talk about making English the official language of the USA. Why is that? If I speak Spanish, will I turn into a Muslim?

Before you were a Republican, were you informed about world affairs? What happened to that knowledge now, and if it's gone, what did you replace it with?

Are you ignoring my question because I said vagina, or because i'm a woman?

You're allowed to speak Spanish in Mexico. Just look how well that turned out.

I'm still informed, nothing I can do about that now. I just try approach political questions from a position of intuitive purity, unimpeded by worldly knowledge.

I'm triangulating a response. I don't really know what that means, but it sounds important.

If I were to buy a car, should I buy new or used?

Are foreign cars ok? What about foreign cars (like Toyota) built in the US?

What type of car would you recommend? Prius? Mini Cooper? or something like a Hummer?

If you Republicans are all for smaller government, why do you want to legislate what I do with my body or who I can marry?

Are you rich now? Will I become rich if I change parties?

It's a trade off. When we make it a big issue who you can or can not marry, most people won't notice how we'll help the rich getting richer.

I asked my mom to pay for college like Mitt said, but she's a waitress at a Coffee House and therefore won't do it. I also imagine she's in the 47%, although she has no healthcare and doesn't get government assistance but I bet she doesn't make enough to pay taxes and is too selfish to volunteer to pay her 15% like our man M.

I guess my question is, where can I get good republican parents to pay for my college and stuff? Is 30 too old to be adopted? Or should I not even be in college since I'm female?

I thought being European meant he was automatically a socialist. Mumbles, clear things up for us!

I didn't pay income tax when I was a grad student, but I do pay it now. Does that mean that I automatically become a Republican? Does it matter that the income I have comes from being part of the liberal elite of academia?
