36 Reasons To Vote Democrat

(TBG's Note: You might have remarked on a lack of posting regarding the current election and thought:
"Man, I wonder what's wrong with TBG, he's usually boring us with Conservative Rhetoric during the run-up to the election.". Well, I caught enough crap from my beloved Constant Readers, so I decided to give it a rest for the bulk of the election.
I couldn't let the entire cycle pass without at least one good politico-centrist post...

From American Thinker
(h/t to Proxi for the lead; all added emphasis are mine)

  1. If you want the American government to be feared by the American people -- but laughed at by Hugo Chávez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- vote Democrat.
  2. If you want to agree with John Kerry that American voters are stupid and distracted and uninformed -- vote Democrat.
  3. If you moved your 7-million-dollar yacht to Rhode Island to avoid taxes -- vote Democrat.
  4. If you want a "dude" president -- and not the shining city on a hill -- vote Democrat.
  5. If you want to pay through the nose in taxes until you are 70 so union thugs in purple shirts can retire in security at age 50 -- vote Democrat.
  6. If you like the fact that people who actually know the Constitution get laughed at by people who are ignorant of it -- vote Democrat.
  7. If you want the entire country to be like Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, New Orleans, Chicago -- vote Democrat.
  8. If you fear the Chamber of Commerce more than you do the Ground Zero Mosque -- vote Democrat.
  9. If you think liberalism and socialism have done a good job of managing the incredibly beautiful and rich state of California, vote Democrat.
  10. If you want a government bureaucrat, who can no doubt access your voter registration records, to determine whether or not you get a hip replacement or a cancer treatment -- vote Democrat.

  12. If you want electricity bills to "necessarily skyrocket" -- vote Democrat.
  13. If you think America deserved what it got on 9-11 -- and that we can handle another such attack -- vote Democrat.
  14. If you think that Club Gitmo, which was not even operational on 9-11, is why "they hate us" -- vote Democrat.
  15. If you think our economy will boom with government bureaucrats making twice what similar folks make in the private sector -- vote Democrat.
  16. If you think there's nothing wrong with Jerry Brown admitting that the last time he ran for governor of California, he "had no plan" -- vote Democrat.
  17. If you think anything has changed about Jerry Brown and his plans -- vote Democrat.
  18. If you liked Richard Blumenthal's answer in the Connecticut debate on "how to create a job" -- vote Democrat.
  19. Actually, if you can even decipher Blumenthal's answer about creating a job -- vote Democrat.

  30. If you think it helps you if your boss gets hit with a huge tax bill -- vote Democrat.
  31. If Chris Matthews gives you a tingle up your leg -- instead of an upset stomach - then vote Democrat.
  32. If you think insurance companies can lower rates, pay for every small medical item -- and every preexisting condition -- and every illegal alien -- and stay in business -- vote Democrat.
  33. If you agree with the French union protesters upset about having to delay retirement for two years to age 62 -- vote Democrat.

Seems like the right time to trot out one of my favorite quotes by RAH:
If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for, but there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong. If this is too blind for your taste, consult some well-meaning fool (there is always one around) and ask his advice. Then vote the other way. This enables you to be a good citizen (if such is your wish) without spending the enormous amount of time on it that truly intelligent exercise of franchise requires.
