How To Make A Republican Tell The Truth

This was originally posted by Plaid Adder on Democratic Underground and only slightly edited by me.

Remember that game people play with cookie fortunes, where you add the words "between the sheets" at the end to make a meaningless platitude much more interesting?

All you have to do in order to make Republican domestic policies make sense is take their talking point and add the words at the end "... if you're rich!"

For instance: "Privatizing social security makes a lot of sense ... if you're rich!"

Or, "Our health care system is the best in the world ... if you're rich!"

Or how about, "The economy under Bush is the strongest it's ever been ... if you're rich!"

Just add three little words, and all of a sudden, the Republicans are telling the truth. It's most fun if you do it in a group with one person beginning the talking point and everyone else finishing it in unison. It could even be adapted as a protest tactic for whenever Republicans hold a rally or town meeting.

Pass it on.

Oh come on! Some of the richest of the rich are on the left!!! All those loaded celebs in Hollywood.....they
always have a cause yet they have no problem with taking $20 million a movie or $2 million an episode. Most leadership on either side (extreme) are wealthy - though Liberals hide it better. Go back in time and you'll see how interwoven both sides really are. Its all a giant conspiracy I tell you.....well maybe not!
