Lisa is an educator and Washington outsider. We need someone from outside politics who can be a voice of reason in the Senate.

Heaven or Hell for Republican

While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Repubican Senator was tragically hit by a car and died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a ...problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator..

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the Senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises...

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven.."

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell..

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage, a sulfuric odor, overwhelming heat and certain fear. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, wailing as they up the trash and put it in black bags while more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of horror and garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil smiles at him and says,

"Yesterday we were campaigning, Today, you voted.."

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be the President some day. Both of her parents, being liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were the 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 with pride.

"Wow! What a worthy goal", I told her. "But you don't have to wait until you're the President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow my lawn, pull weeds and sweep my yard. And I'll pay you $50.00. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out and you can give him the $50.00 to use toward food and a new house".

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work. Then you can just pay him the $50.00"?

I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party ". Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

Your joke sucked. An estimated 744,000 people are homeless on any given night, 40 to 45 percent of them have a serious mental illness. Most of these mentally ill people go untreated, and unable to work, live a hand-to-mouth existence out on the streets. We have already seen how the Republicans have no compassion, railed against healthcare reform, and only care about themselves.

Republican party is a national shame.

Jerry Moran has helped to create the national deficit by being one of the biggest recipients of Farm Subsidies.

http://farm.ewg.org/region.php...

80% of Farm Subsidies go to the richest 10% of "farmers". They subsidize things like the production of high fructose corn syrup that is a factor in the epidemic of diabetes that we are seeing. Farm subsidies also subsidize the production of corn-based ethanol which actually takes more fossil fuels to produce than it saves when used in our cars.

Many conservative economic leaders say that Farm Subsidies have helped to build the national deficit for a long time, so why would we want a welfare queen like Jerry Moran, who helped so much to put this country in debt, why would we want this hypocrite making decisions about our lives.

I don't really fall into any political party. Both sides have their share of downfalls and both democrats and republicans have corrupt individuals within their parties. As for "we have already seen how the Republicans have no compassion", that is called a stereotype. I have good friends who are die hard Democrats and die hard Republicans who would do anything in the world for a person in need. Just because Bill Clinton cheated on Hilary doesn't mean that all Democrats are adulters. America today is too focused on what party a person belongs to instead of the issues at hand. We have reached a point where voting has become a matter of picking who will do the least harm instead of who will do the most good. Personally, I believe America would be better off without any political parties.
