I’ll Be a Republican If…

In the endless debate between Democrats and Republicans, a lot of rhetoric is thrown back and forth between both sides.

I’m a liberal for a lot of reasons. I believe in equal rights, that social programs are essential for a successful society, religion should be kept out of politics, that we can own guns and still pass sensible gun regulations, that health care should be a right not a privilege and our economy should be built from the middle out, not the top down—just for starters.

But I’ll tell you what Republicans, I’ll become a Republican if you can tell me:

How we can build a successful society in which we don’t have the poor to work the jobs most of us don’t want to work, for pay we want no part of and have everyone makes enough money to qualify to pay income taxes and health insurance. All while keeping the cost of products at the same basic rate of inflation we’ve seen for decades. Because trust me, the single mother of 2 making $10 an hour at a full-time job won’t be able to do so, she’d need to be earning a minimum of $30k year. And very few people flipping burgers or folding clothes are making over $10 an hour—let alone $30k per year.
If guns have nothing to do with gun violence, because people kill people, how are these bullets entering the bodies of their victims? Are these murderers throwing the bullets at their targets?
How we can provide health care to children of poor parents, keep them fed and give them the best education and opportunities possible—yet eliminate welfare programs, make health care so expensive their parents won’t be able to afford it and cut funding for education. Remember, children are innocent and Republicans claim to be “pro-life,” you simply cannot abandon the child once it’s born to fend for itself. Many Republicans claim life is so sacred—well, life does extend beyond the womb, which current Republican policy seems to forget.
Why we shouldn’t pass a law right now that requires women to be paid the same as a man for the same job.

How freedom of religion means a government created by a singular religion. Because I hate to break it to you, even as Christians there are many denominations that can’t even agree on how to worship their own faith. So just how was this country founded to be ruled by a faith that its own followers can’t even agree upon?

How the opposition to same-sex marriage is anything but a violation of our First Amendment, as “homosexuality is a sin” and “traditional marriage” come from religion. Again, the whole “freedom of religion” thing.

If the only way to create jobs is “tax cuts,” how did we create millions of jobs with higher taxes? Here’s a fun thought, if the only way you can create jobs is by cutting taxes, what do you do when tax rates are so low you really can’t cut taxes anymore? How do you create jobs then? Maybe–demand? You know, the real reason companies create jobs.

What society in human history that was successfully built on low taxes, small government and very few regulations? Because we sure weren’t. The United States wasn’t a world power, or all that wealthy, until after WWII—when we had much higher taxes and strong unions.

How you can be a “Constitutional American,” yet openly seek to restrict the Constitutionally protected right of a woman’s right to choose.
