How To Be a Republican

Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by Rocketeer, Feb 2, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Some simple rules for supporting Bush et al..

    1] Jesus loves you and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton
    2] Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and VietNam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.
    3] The United States should get out of the United Nations, although the highest national priority is enforcing UN resolutions against Iran.
    4] A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.
    5] The best way to improve military morale is to praise troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and soldiers' combat pay.
    6] If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.
    7] a good way to combat terorism is to belittle long-time allies, then demand their co-operation and money.
    8] providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy, providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMO's and Insurance companies have the berst interests of the public at heart.
    9] Global warming and tobacco's links to cancer are junk science, creationism, however, should be taught in schools.
    10] a president lying about extramarital affairs is an impeachable offence, but a president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defence policy.
    11] Government should be limited to the powers named in the constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the internet.
    12] Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you are a conservative radio host, then it is an illness and you should pray for his recovery
    13] What Bill Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the 1980's is irrrlevant.
    14] hunters who shoot friends should be supported and the friends blamed for wearing orange vests similar in colour to those worn by quail.

    okay, so they aren't all gems of wit.. anyone got a similar list for how to be a Democrat??
  2. I'll admit some were pretty funny

    Here's my democrat list:

    1) The best way to improve the economy is to tax and impose limitations on succesful industries

    2) If we throw money at black people, maybe they'll leave us alone

    3) The low employment rate in rural areas has nothing to do with the limitations we put on the logging, fishing, and agricultural industries

    4) There's no problem a tax increase can't solve.

    5) The best way to deal with violence is to just walk away, even when it stabs you in the back later.

    6) I went to Harvard, I don't have to listen to you soldier!!

    7) We cannot censor television, radio, or cinema, but videogames are not free speech

    8 ) Smoking ciggarettes is a bad habit you should feel guilty about, but if you kill someone while on meth, that's a disease and is not your fault.

    9) The military should not be able to recruit in schools, or malls, or even in recruiting stations.

    10) The criminal rights are more important than victims rights.

    11) Man on pumpkin sex is a perfectly natural act that should be taught to children (Stole that one from Jon Stewart)

    I'll work on it
