    Why I'm Voting Democrat
    Ben Shapiro
    Wednesday, June 18, 2008

    A new video on YouTube is taking the Internet by storm. Entitled "I'm Voting Republican," the satirical clip depicts actors playing conservative Americans of all shapes and sizes explaining why they would vote for the GOP.

    "Arnold Jones" says he's voting Republican because "all other countries are inferior to us" -- and his wife, "Trudy Jones," adds, "and we should start as many wars as we need to keep it that way." A soldier in Iraq states that he's voting Republican "so I can stay in Iraq" -- and a young boy, labeled "future draftee," points a fake gun at the camera and smiles while saying "so I can go to Iran!"

    A black couple says they're voting Republican because they "like a conservative majority on the Supreme Court," with the wife noting, "we really like knowing that even if we're separate, we'll still be called equal."

    This insulting nonsense is precisely what liberals think of conservatives: We're all warmongers, racists, environmental rapists and secret emissaries of big corporations. We're going to reinstitute the draft, start a war with Canada and then relocate African-Americans to Quebec.

    This sort of tripe should be dismissed out of hand. In the spirit of evenhandedness and fair play, however, I feel it my duty to explain why I'm going to vote Democrat.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe that the best strategy in war is defeat. It broadens the mind to learn Japanese, German and Arabic. Talk about multiculturalism!

    I'm voting Democrat because I'm mad that George W. Bush hasn't caught Bin Laden. That's because Bin Laden is the only Islamic terrorist in the world.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe that if I don't have enough money, the solution is for the government to take more of my money. Who needs money when gas is $5 per gallon?

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe that the ideal family is two homosexual bonobos, a goat and a parrot raising a human baby. Love and compassion is all it takes to make a successful family!

    I'm voting Democrat because it's my body, and if I want to kill my baby, I'll do it, even if its head is in the birth canal. If I want to cut out my intestines and feed them to the crocodiles, I'll do that too. That's the freedom our forefathers enshrined in the Constitution.

    I'm voting Democrat because our enemies on the battlefield deserve comfy hotel rooms, Pay-Per-View, prostitutes and all the benefits of American citizenship.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe we need other countries' permission for me to turn down my thermostat.

    I'm voting Democrat because I care about the real victims of crime -- criminals.

    I'm voting Democrat because the real cure for racism includes preferential policies based on race -- particularly in presidential voting. If you believe that a black candidate ought to be qualified, as well as black, you're worse than Bull Conner.

    I'm voting Democrat because everyone deserves crappy healthcare. Sure, you'll have to wait years for that life-saving cancer surgery. But it's first come, first served at the cemetery!

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe in minority rights (except in Muslim countries), free speech (with regard to pornography but not conservative talk radio), environmentalism (unless we're talking about Al Gore's house) and diplomacy (but never backed by the threat of military force).

    I'm voting Democrat because I like the words "hope" and "change." Also "kazoo." That's a funny word.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe that America's founders were rich, white, greedy xenophobes, and that America's founding principles are hogwash requiring periodic editing from an unelected group of liberal judges.

    Most of all, I'm voting Democrat because I like the ideas they have over in France, but I don't feel like moving there. I'll threaten to move, but I really won't. After all, I have a good job, healthcare, lower taxes, free speech and a social framework that promotes family structure. And all of it is defended by the most effective fighting force on the planet.

    If only the institution of far-left values resulted in a great country. Oh, well. That won't stop me from voting Democrat, though. After all, I'm voting Democrat because thought isn't one of my strong suits.

  3. I'm voting Democrat because...

    -When my children go to school, I want them to learn to be politically correct, I want the teachers to show them how to use condoms, & I want them to learn that they should be ashamed to be white. I want it to be pounded into their head that their forefathers were cruel, hateful men, & that they should carry this guilt with them to the grave.

    -I want a government run, socialized health care system, because gov't programs work so good.

    -I don't think people who were stupid & bought houses they can't afford should lose their homes. I want to pay for them.

    -I shouldn't have the right to carry a firearm. If we ban guns, the criminals would also stop using them, because they're fair like that.

    -Because I know that child molesters are just confused, they can be re-habed with just a little time spent in jail & some therapy (that I should pay for). & Besides, who am I to really judge their life-style anyway.

    -Affirmative action is great! Putting a lesser qualified person in a position over a better qualified person based solely on race is so fair. Besides, black peolpe aren't smart enough to compete with whites, they need all the help they can get.

    -You're a business owner. Without gov't control, wouldn't you hire a lesser qualified white over a better qualified black, even though the better qualified black would make you more money? I know I would! Thank god affirmative action stopped me from making such a blunder!

    -Socialism works! Just look at history.

    -I like being a slave to oil rich foreign countries. No need to use our own resources!

    -Complying with the Kyoto treaty is a great idea! Who needs industry in America anyway? If we limit ourselves & stop producing goods here, they'll just be produced in another country with even slacker environmental laws, but don't worry about that, because we'll know we're doing the right thing. Besides, those greeters at Wal-Mart seem to love their jobs. I think I would like to make that my new career.

    -I like having illegal immigrants here. They lower my wages, & do jobs that we Americans are too good to do. They drive around with no licenses, drunk, & kill people. But that's OK because they add to my voter base.

    -Having a slave underclass (illegal immigrants) is OK. They'll be happy to stay poor & clean toilets. That's why I don't mind paying their medical bills & providing social services for them.

    -We don't need border control. Never mind those drugs that flood over them, thus ruining the lives of millions of Americans in countless ways.

    -Because if I don't vote for Obama, it's because I am a racist. Not because I disagree with him on a philosophical level.

  5. I'm voting democrat because it's comforting to know that the more successful I am and the more money I make that I will be punished by paying higher taxes. Nothing like punishing the successful for their success. Who cares that the top 20% in wage earners pay 80% of the nations taxes? They should certainly pay more.


  6. You scared me for a second there bp....

    Yet, you'd be hard pressed to provide an accurate argument for any of those "extremes" when talking about the far left.

    Instead, you'd find a way to spin it that the poster is a narrow minded extremist, or a racist, or some other awful term. When in fact - he/she is probably an average caucasian American tired of the rhetoric from the left. Tired of working 60 hrs a week to pay SOMEONE ELSE's way.

    Just curious if you actually read mo's post? As he was not directing it towards the extreme left, but towards democrats. There is a huge difference, but I assume you know that already

    I have realized that this thread is a left hating party, and as an idenpendent I might as well leave now.

    the point is that if one side goes extreme, you have to combat it on the same grounds. "What about the children" is great for people pulling heart strings, but unless you can convince both parties to stop using extremes simultaneously, then both parties have to continue using extremes

    lets not start the "he was bad first" argument as that is downright foolish and has no real answer. Both parties are a sham, you know it and I know it, and both parties are sending candidates that are not qualified for the position.

    Threads like these continue the path of division in a country that can and should no longer accept it. However, both sides will continue to bicker over "they started it" nonsense, and 10 years from now we will be sitting in the same place, accept our economy will be worse, and the war(s) will be endless, and the middle class will be all gone and forgotten(regardless of who wins). Good job by both parties.

    Indeed. But there are people out there who actually think there is a significant difference between Republicans and Democrats, and it's fun to make fun of them. And in my experience, in no way scientific but it's all I've got on this issue, most of those people are on the left.

    Threads like these continue the path of division in a country that can and should no longer accept it.
    There's a division in this country because people disagree. I know Democrats and Republicans like to think at heart everyone agrees with them, but it just isn't so. There is some foolish bickering, but below that are genuine and massive disconnects on basic ideological questions and also, once more in my own experience far more on the left, genuine and massive disconnects from reality.

    And finally, going to extremes is fun. What's with people thinking extreme and dirty politics are something new and undesirable? It's always been this way, and when things were more divisive I'd wager most people were better off than not. Way back when, when instead of this PC BS about "My friend from the other side of the aisle" you called your opponent "that prick who wants more money from my constituents."

    I actually think a better response is to ignore (ie, not respond to) the more hysterical, hyperventilative screeds. To respond to such scurrilous [email protected] lends it an air of legitimacy it does not merit, and which we as a self-governing people do not profit from in any way.

    Talkin' smack is fine for sporting events - but it's not a substitute for serious debate, honest examination & analysis, or sane self-government. More than at any time since the Civil War, we are "a house divided against itself" - and must inevitably become all one thing, or all the other - or perish.

    I agree in principal, but when the vast majority of the population are sheep swayed by "what about the children" because they don't know any better or care, how can one party ignore it if the other party pulls it out?

    just to add my thought, it is both parties at fault here, not just one.

    there is a litany of issues created by both sides, however it seems you are swayed in a way you described about the others

  20. we are "a house divided against itself" - and must inevitably become all one thing, or all the other - or perish.
    I hope I am not understanding you correctly...but are you saying we need to all believe one way or the other or we're done for as a society? Have some Soma with your protein.

    I dont disagree, but at this point the exploitation of the differences just seems so silly

    this is pretty funny right here

  22. just to add my thought, it is both parties at fault here, not just one.
    This is very true. My concern is that the two parties are actually becoming too similar. Wasn't very long ago Daschel had McCain thinking about swtiching parties. The Republicans have moved too far to the left for my worldview. Does that make me an extremist? I can't see that, I'm just your basic Reagan conservative.

    Not at all, but the republican party is closer to my ideals than the democrats. Not voting is a joke as it changes nothing, so i'm forced to vote republican. I'm much more of a constitutionalist. More states rights, less federal government. the federal government was put into place to secure our borders from the outside, and to keep interstate commerce fair. Outside of that, the rest of what it has done for a long time is way out of scope.

    bpmartyr, you post a lot of articles like this, spark a lot of debate, but never join in on the discussion. Be nice to see you elaborate on your ideas, etc., rather than just throw out an article. Just a thought....(great articles though, lol).

    Gee, Sport - that quote from ABRAHAM LINCOLN kinda threw you, dinnit?

    I have this bet with myself: that fewer than one in ten can tell when and how "left" and "right" came into political speech; I base this on the observation that the Left/Right "political dichotomy" is typically used (more aggresively by the "right", it seems) as if it meant something in and of itself - and not in reference to something specific. It is a specific historical reference. Anyone want to prove me wrong?

    OK, point taken.

    I believe at the time of my posting, I had added more to the conversation in 2 words than your overblown insult to the oringinal post.

    So in adding to the conversation, the title said Democrats, but within the body he refers to both the "far-left" and "liberals," so it appears that the article is about the left (extreme is a relative term).

    That's about where I sit. I would probably vote Independent if there were ever any strong candidates and/or the 2 party system was "corrected." As it stands now, my voting record would show that I don't strictly vote a party line at the local, state or federal levels. I vote for the candidate that (at least who's campaign) most closely resembles my ideals. That tends to be Repub more often.
