A young teenage girl was about to finish her first year of college. She considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat and her father was a rather staunch Republican. One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his opposition to programs like welfare. He stopped her and asked her how she was doing in school. She answered that she had a 4.0
GPA but it was really tough maintaining it. She had to study all the time, never had time to go out and party and often went sleepless because of all the studying. She didn't have much time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of all her studying.

He then asked how her friend Mary, who was attending the same college, was doing. His daughter replied that Mary was barely getting by. She had a 2.0 GPA, never studied, was very popular on campus and was at parties all the time. She often wouldn't show up for classes because she was hung over.

The dad then asked his daughter why she didn't go to the Dean's office and ask if she could take 1.0 off her 4.0 average and give it to her friend Mary who only had a 2.0. That way they would both have a 3.0 GPA.

The daughter immediately fired back and said, "That wouldn't be fair, I worked really hard for mine and my friend Mary hasn't done anything to earn a good grade."

The father smiled and said, "Sweetheart, welcome to the Republican Party."

Another old thread I happened to come across tonight. It seems to me that this discussion could easily be applied to the current health care debate with only a few minor word changes. It also seems to me that the attidude is more Libertarian or Constitutionalist party than it is Republican these days.
