Should you become a Democrat?

by Edward ODaniel / March 26, 2005 2:02 AM PST

by John Hawkins
As a service to RWN's readers, I have prepared the following 25 questions to help people determine if they should join the Democratic party. Feel free to share it with friends and family members and if they find themselves answering "yes" to most of the questions below, then the Democrats are the party for them.

Are you...


...of the opinion that those racist, warmongering, Fascist, Nazi-like, heartless, moronic, evil, Republicans are mean spirited hatemongers?

...horrified when you hear about dolphins being killed in a tuna net, but unperturbed by a woman aborting her own baby?

...worried that the electronic voting machines might be rigged, but unconcerned about people voting without a picture ID?


Do you...

...believe that we're rushing to war with Iraq despite the fact that the UN has been trying to convince Saddam to disarm for more than 12 years?

...think Ann Coulter is mean spirited, vicious, & shrill, but Maureen Dowd, Ted Rall, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, John Pilger, Margo Kingston, Tom Daschle, Noam Chomsky, Arianna Huffington, Molly Irvins, Eric Alterman & James Carville (among many others) are nice, sweet-natured, and reasonable?

...tend to be minimally concerned about the victims and potential victims of terrorists, but very concerned about how the terrorists are treated after they're caught?

...feel that the rich must have inherited their money, gotten lucky, or cheated someone to earn their wealth, but that it's society's fault that people are poor?


I failed the test, I could never be one.

One can equally well point up...
by Dave Konkel [Moderator] / March 27, 2005 2:59 AM PST

the inconsistencies in the modern Republican credo. Chief among them this week is "be appalled at withholding treatment from someone in a persistently vegetative state mere days after voting to withhold traetment from millions of poor people with far better prognoses." If we weren't about to sit down for Easter dinner, I'd do a web search and find the Republicna equivalent online (I'm sure there must be one...)

Such "inconsistencies" (and in your specific...

example there really are none) are indeed facts of life. For Conservatives however inconsistencies are anomalies while for liberals they are a defining feature and way of life.

my soul, I might as well start enjoying the proceeds as soon as possible. After all, it's a limited time offer. Can I get a gig like Jessie's?

The test was so horribly biased that I failed too.

But you can count on my opposing the Republicans and conservative Democrats. Only middle of the road Democrats need apply.
