A Day in the Life of Joe Republican

 

By John Gray, Cincinnati, Ohio

 

Joe gets up at 6:00 am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good, clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and efficacy. All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance.

 

Now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. Joe takes his morning shower, reaching for his shampoo; his bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know the amount and identity of the substances he was putting on his body.

 

Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor to society. Joe begins his workday. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer upholds these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a workers compensation or unemployment check because some Liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

 

It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

 

Joe is home from work, and he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmer's Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicans would still be sitting in the dark!) He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad

lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to.

 

After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show. The host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees. "We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives", he says. "After all, I'm a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have".

It is a good read because our country needs two sides in order to function. The checks and balances of the 2 parties is what makes this country so great and why the third parties don't survive very long.

 

You need liberals and conservatives in order to have a sucessful society, but they must control each other. You can't go all the way to either extreme. My view of conservatism is what I personally believe to be right and wrong. I believe it is right for government to do things like mass transit, regulate industries, and defend citizens because those are for the common good. It is also right for citizens to push for their beliefs in policy and let the system work.

I agree to an extent with you Cape. Thats why we must pull all our effort into hating and removint the influence of people like Mike Moore and Rush Limbaugh. All they teach us is that one party is all bad and the other is all good. This obviously isnt true and does nothing to bring us together. It does however serve to make them rich and famous. Jackasses.

I am not going to hate them because they are just entertainers. They do not write policy and they do not affect policy anymore than a 4 year old. It is just entertainment for both sides. I listen to both and frankly, both have lost my ear for a while.

I hate them because they effect people greatly and lead them to hate other people...not to mention the extreme lack of critical thinking they encourage.

Probably because you listen to both and you realize the rhetoric each uses and how basic they try and make everything seem.

My step-dad worships Rush Limbaugh. He gets all those stupid magazines that he puts out.

It is very common for people to take what any of these people say as absolutely true without question. Liberals will tend to say this happens more with limbaugh than with someone like moore. That of course if untrue, and it happens the same both ways as seen by the effects of F911. Education is whats important for everyone, so that people udnerstand both sides, and realize, as it says i nthe article some liberal fought for ingredients to be labeled, BUT some conservative then needs to fight to ensure that these labeling procedures dont force medical companies out of business, so that people continue getting low prices on medicines. Its a 2 way compromise, both sides do good and compromise is key.
