Republocrats or Demoblicans?


It’s election season once again in the U. S. of A., and both political parties are hard at work winning the votes of the American public.  So, who do you favor in this election, the Republocrats or the Demoblicans?  Here’s a brief rundown of the stances of each party to help you make up your mind:

The Republocrats:

- Are putting forth a candidate who is a good Christian and family man.
- Will withhold part of your income but promise to let you have more of it back than the Demoblicans will.
- Will see to it that you can get cheaper medicine than under the Demoblicans.
- Say they will fix the financial mess the Demoblicans have made of this country.
- Will use the military to attack the bad guys, but different bad guys than the Demoblicans will attack.
- Promise to protect you from America’s enemies better than the Demoblicans will.
- Will handle the education of your children for you.
- Want you to have a good job so that you can pay your taxes, pay your mortgage, save a little money every month, raise your kids, and send them to a good school so that they can repeat the process.
- Say that we will have a sustainable economy sometime in the future, but in the meantime they will see to it that the economy keeps growing so that everyone can keep their jobs.
- Want you to vote.

            There are a number of trivial issues, unimportant to the majority of the American public, which are not priorities of either party.  These include:

- The unconstitutionality of the federal income tax.
- The epidemic of obesity and lifestyle diseases.
- The problems inherent in private control of the Federal Reserve System.
- The incompleteness of the 9/11 Commission Report and the existence of thermite residue in the rubble of the World Trade Center (thermite is a type of explosive used in the controlled demolition of skyscrapers).
- The rationale of the global war on terror.
- Promoting alternatives to traditional schooling, such as home based learning and self-directed education.
- Promoting alternatives to traditional employment, such as self-employment, employee ownership, and cooperatives.
- The implications of runaway population growth.
- The limits to economic growth in a finite world.
- Transforming the focus of the political system from centralized administration to local determination.
- Transforming the basis of the economy from centralized control to local sustainability.
- The inherent problems with control of the media by corporate conglomerates.
- The Texas border fence currently under construction.
- The Trans Texas Corridor currently under construction.
- The complementary demographic transitions of urban decay and suburban sprawl.

So, who do you favor this election season?  Remember, your vote counts.
