I'm in the military and I pay taxes. Do I have to be a republican too?

You already are...

I was actually told by someone when I started my first "real" job after college that it was important to vote Republican because they would best support my interests...

That depends on what sort of role you have in academia. If you're in the business department*, then you're cool, because you're training up our next generation. If you're in some science or liberal arts department, you're obviously part of the problem.


*I say that about the business departments totally tongue in cheek, as 3 out of 4 of my grad classes this semester are, in fact, in the business school, and my interdisciplinary degree makes me a half business student. And one of my professors is all awesome and stresses ethics and is very for "the little guy" so I know not all business folk are big R's. It is funny, though, because outside the department there was sidewalk chalk scrawl for Romney/Ryan. I wanted to get some red chalk and write "Big surprise, business students for Romney. Don't be a stereotype."

mumbles came in and got us all riled up and promised to help us with all our problems, and then he just disappeared and left us to argue amongst ourselves while he did backstrokes in his pool of money or something. i think he must have been active in politics longer than we thought, because i don't know how anyone could get this good at it in only a couple of days.

Being Republican: either you get it or you don't. There is no in between. I'm pretty sure it's divine intervention or something when you become one. I'm just counting the days until I graduate and make enough to pay taxes so I can hurl insults at lazy-ass families like mine that fall below the taxable threshold. But I'm really confused, because I thought that Republicans HATE taxes. So, mumbles, should I like, pay taxes but bisque about it? Or like try to find as many loopholes as possible to get out of them? Is it still wrong not to pay taxes once you're wealthy, or is it your patriotic duty to keep all your money to create jobs? I don't understand. Come back!

Larisa, I'm also still waiting on an answer about being female and too educated. Since mumbles hasn't returned, I'm not sure what it means to have a vagina and a degree or two. You should probably look for that answer, too.

It used to be better to buy American cars, but ever since Obama took over the US auto industry with socialism...well, it doesn't matter anymore.

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

You should get a Hummer and then get a bumper sticker that reads "My other car is deployed in Iraq."

What else are scientists lying to us about besides global warming and evolution? (Sub-question: Should I stop recycling?)

Everything. Scientists only care about one thing: grant money. That's why we can't trust them--they just say whatever they need to to get Washington kleptocrats to give them more money stolen from the American taxpayer. We should only trust impartial sources like the Exxon Mobil Corporation.

I can't answer your sub-question because you never should have started recycling in the first place. Nice try with the gotcha journalism.

Um, maybe because I have values? And the great thing about values: they're free.

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?

If you're majoring in vagina studies or whatever: don't bother. Just find yourself a nice husband and settle down. If you're having trouble finding a husband, consider majoring in home economics at your local Christian college.

Europeans don't care about the Constitution, so I don't care about them. They don't even have any First Amendment rights! Veg_Eric is brave for speaking out against the European gulags, but sadly, those people are on the road to serfdom, just as they have been for fifty years. What can I say: it's a long road.

Wait, how did you get into the military without being a Republican? The liberal infiltration of America has made more progress than I thought.

You should not pay taxes and express your outrage at the fact that some people think you should incur tax liabilities at all.

Quote:

It's just rational self-interest. Look it up. Don't actually read anything, just look it up.

Quote:

Look, it's not that complicated. Taxation is theft. When is theft ok? Never. Oh, your children are starving? How about you learn how to bake! In any case, Washington is hardly starving.

Damn it. I'm in the math department.

I think that math Republicans believe that math is an invented science and other math affiliations believe that math is naturally occurring.

You know, I feel so comforted that mumbles has all the answers. It is like I don't even have to think for myself anymore. Mumbles will tell me what to do.

What will be different once we have a business man running the country? Does it matter that that business man has a JD from Harvard? If I liked Ron Paul, should I now vote for Gary Johnson?

Member, schmember. I liked it so much, I bought the company.

We'll finally be back on track. Unproductive portions of the country will be scrapped. The rest will be streamlined and sold to the highest bidder.

The man never practiced law. It's not a good thing to have a JD from Harvard, but we all have our youthful indiscretions.

If you liked Ron Paul, you should get your head examined. I mean, the guy doesn't even want to go to war with Iran.

My neighbors are atheists (i.e. communists) and I want to instill my Christian values upon them. I really don't feel safe living in close proximity to such godless freedom-haters. What do you propose I do??

That's a difficult situation. I'll pray for you.

You should probably try to organize community protests of their anti-Christian agenda. We cannot tolerate these kinds of attacks on our beliefs, our religion, our freedoms.

Pretty great? Just goes to show you who the real racists are.

If Republicans hate birth control so much, why don't they all have at least six kids?
