A Republican recently asked his friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so the Republican asked the little girl: '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 beamed.
'Wow...what a worthy goal..' the Republican told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, 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. '
The little girl thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked the Republican 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?'
The Republican smiled and said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'
