So simple to explain...


Recommended Posts

I asked a friend's daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day.

Both her parents, Labor supporters, were standing there, so I asked her,

"If you were Prime Minister 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, and said, "Welcome to the Labor Party!"

"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I told her.

I continued, "But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to

do that. You can come over to my house, mow the lawn, pull weeds, sweep

my drive and I'll pay you $25.

Then I'll take you over to the shop where the homeless guy sits outside.

You can give him the $25 to use toward food."

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 25?"

I smiled and said, "Welcome to the Liberal Party."

Her parents still aren't speaking to me...........
