Funny Political Systems
« on: October 12, 2012, 05:32:01 AM »

Every country and every party has its funny political systems, here are some of my favorites researched by Alicia Moss.

An American Democrat

You have two cows.
Your neighbor has none.
You feel guilty for being successful.
You vote people into office that put a tax on your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax.
The people you voted for then take tax money, buy a cow and give it to your neighbor.
You feel righteous and Barbara Streisand sings for you.

You have two cows.
Your neighbor has none.
So?

You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

Democracy, American style

You have two cows.
The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.
