So I asked her, “If you were President, what would be the first thing you would do?” She replied, “I would give food and houses to all the homeless people.” Her parents beamed.
“Wow, what a worthy goal,” I 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 driveway, and I’ll pay you $50. Then I’ll take you to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out and you can give him the $50 to use towards 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 and you can just pay him $50?” I said, “Welcome to the Republican party.”
Her parents still aren’t speaking to me.
Nice little story. The part you didn't mention to your friend's little girl is that the homeless guy would love the work but it's cheaper and more fun to pay the undocumented immigrant $15 to do the same work then go and say disparaging things about both the homeless guy and the undocumented immigrant behind their backs. Welcome to the Republican party!
