    I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she
    grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents,
    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.

    '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 the Republican Party.'

    Her parents still aren't speaking to me.
