I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she
grows up. She said she wanted to be President of the United States .

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 proudly beamed. "Wow...what a worthy goal," I told her.
"But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. Tell you
what - you can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep
my driveway, 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. How about doing something wonderful like
that?"

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...

Why would you pay her to do that?  Tell her that the government is already forcibly confiscating the $50 from you.  Now it is just up to us to look to the government for all our wants and desires.

As long as they have people like you and me to steal from?

Недавно я спросила девочка моих друзей, что она хотела быть, когда она
растет. Она сказала, что хочет стать президентом Соединенных Штатов.

Оба ее родители, либеральные демократы, стояли там. Поэтому я попросил
ей: "Если вы были президентом, что бы быть первое, что вы сделали бы?"
Она ответила: "Я отдал бы еду и жилье всем бездомным".

Ее родители с гордостью сияли. "Ничего себе ... что достойная цель", сказал я ей.
"Но вы не должны ждать, пока вы президент, чтобы сделать это. Рассказать вам
что - вы можете прийти в мой дом и косить газон, тянуть сорняками, и развертки
моей дороге, и я заплачу вам в $ 50. Тогда я возьму тебя в продуктовый
магазин, где бездомный парень болтается, и вы можете дать ему $ 50 до использования
к еде и новый дом. Как насчет делать что-то прекрасное, как
что? "

Она думала, что за несколько секунд, то она смотрела мне прямо в
глаза и спросил: "Почему не бездомный парень приехать и сделать работу, и
Вы можете просто заплатить ему $ 50? "

Я сказал: "Добро пожаловать в Республиканской партии."

Ее родители до сих пор не разговаривает со мной ...
