Why some people vote Democrat


While I am far, far behind in blog-reading, this one caught my eye and I thought it must be repeated. From OneDwarf.com, an excellent blog throughout this campaign:

I guess it's easy to vote Democratic when you don't do anything for yourself and rely on someone else for everything. Most of the Democratic policies and John Kerry's "plans" fit right into that little box. You might as well wrap it and put a bow on top.

Here's an excellent case of a Democratic voter. I was reading an article about Theresa Heinz and came across the statement of a Reno woman, Aliena Anderson, who said her and her husband have both lost their jobs. Her biggest concern? Like any good parent it's her kids. Too bad for them. Because their mommy and daddy are morons. Anderson says "Having health care coverage for them now would immediately ease my mind, I'm looking forward to not having to worry about that in the future. It's a very scary thing to not have insurance for them." Let's hope for her metal well-being, that John Kerry is elected. Then she's ready for the Kerry administration to give her kids free health care.

Perhaps if she looked to her own state, rather than waiting for the Federal Government hand out, she'd realize she could get her kids covered today. Nevada offers the Nevada Check Up. What's the Nevada Check Up? Nevada Check Up is the State of Nevada's Children's Health Insurance Program. It provides low-cost, comprehensive health care coverage to low income, uninsured children 0 through 18 years of age who are not covered by private insurance or Medicaid.

While it does have income limits, if Aliena is as destitute as she states, then she will have nothing to worry about. Of course, it isn't free either, there's a small premium to be paid, once again based on income. The maximum she would have to pay is $280 a year, per kid. Damn, she'd have to have the cable turned off and get rid of her cell phone. Oh, the humanity!

I'll end with a quote from George Carlin that about sums it all up: "Just think how stupid the average people you meet are, and then realize, half of them are more stupid than that!"
