Since I'm a proud Christian conservative, I often feel the need to turn people into Christian conservatives just like me. I found this amazingly heart-warming story in my favorite Live Journal community, Bush2004, and I thought I would share it with all of you.
A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so
many others her age she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat
and was for distribution of all wealth.
She felt deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican
which she expressed openly. One day she was challenging her father on
his beliefs and his opposition to higher taxes on the rich & the
addition of more government welfare programs. Based on the lectures that
she had participated in and the occasional chat with a professor she
felt that for years her father had obviously harbored an evil, even
selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.
The self professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be
the truth and she indicated so to her father.
He stopped her and asked her point blank, how she was doing in school.
She answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know
that it was tough to maintain. That she studied all the time, never had
time to go out and party like other people she knew.
She didn't even have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many
college friends because of spending all her <> time
That she was taking a more difficult curriculum.
Her father listened and then asked, "How is your good friend Kwanisha
She replied, "Kwanisha is barely getting by." She continued, "She barely has
a 2.0 GPA," adding, "Kwanisha doesn't have the luxury of having her College Tuition paid for by a rich daddy like I do. Kwanish has to WORK much harder for her education, literally. She works a full-time job and never has time to study. She can barely even afford to pay all her bills on time." She continued "I doubt Kwanisha is going to even pass this semester. She will probably get suspended for having such a poor GPA, and have to continue working her low-wage job in order to pay off the remainder of her tuition."
Her father then asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's
office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your 4.0 GPA and give it to your
friend who only has a 2.0." He continued, "That way you will both have a
3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of
The daughter visibly shocked by her father's suggestion angrily fired
back, "That wouldn't be fair! I got all your
money for mine, I did
without and Mary has worked extremely hard for hers, she worked while I didn't have to work at all!"
The father slowly smiled, winked and said, "Welcome to the Republican
The daughter looked very confused, "Um...okay?"Well, I'll be honest; I like most of this story, but the part about Kwanisha throws me off. Not to mention, I don't like the sound of her name. It sounds deviant.
However, I'm glad the overall message of the story is in favor of Republicans like myself.
God bless all of your faces.
