Why I'm voting Democrat

I just came across some very convincing reasons to vote Democrat. My personal top ten favorites are below. Read the rest on the Sundries blog: (hat tip: John W.)

I'm voting Democrat because I believe the government can do a much better job of spending my money than I can.

I'm voting Democrat because freedom of speech should be limited to what offends no one else.

I'm voting Democrat because when we pull out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they will then realize we're good people after all.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe businesses should not be allowed to make profits; they should only break even and give the rest to the government for redistribution as Congress sees fit.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe oil company profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

I'm voting Democrat because I think taxpayers should give $65 billion per year in "anti-global poverty taxes" to the United Nations for bureaucrats there to distribute as they see fit, because they did such a good job handling the oil for food program.

I’m voting Democrat because they opposed every effort in the last 10 years to put tighter controls on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

I'm voting Democrat because I'd rather send my children to a poorly-run public school with terrible teachers who can't be fired than have a voucher system that would let me shop around for a better school.

I'm voting Democrat because I don't think the United States, Israel, or Europe needs a missile defense system to protect against nuclear missiles from Russia, Iran, or North Korea.
