My party is for increasing minimum wage and against a voter ID requirement.

They say the minimum wage increase will enable workers at McDonald’s and Walmart to marry and raise families.

My first job in 1946 paid 35 cents an hour. At age 16, I was not ready for marriage and raising a family.

They also say that voter ID requirements prevent senior citizens from voting because they don’t have transportation. I believe enlisting volunteers nationwide could provide the transportation.

The opposing party is against abortion and raising taxes. I believe that our eight children qualify my wife and I as anti-abortion. We never considered birth control and abortion as solutions to our financial problems early in our marriage. However, we don’t want to force others to live as we do.

As for taxes, the G.I. Bill paid my way to college. I was able to get a job with enough income to raise eight children and assist them in going to college.

I say “assist” because government loans provided the most money. Social Security now prevents us from having to depend on our children for financial support.

On the other hand, $2 trillion in taxes enabled useless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bizarre.

Thank goodness you are not a majority.
Will burger flipping become a career path?
Do we really want felons and illegals using false names to vote?
Any citizen too mentally handicapped to get a free voter ID doesn't need to vote.

That's one description.
I was going with a simple 'huh!?'.

Vote like it usually goes. Pick out a smile or a color or a promise that you personally think is just dandy, and vote for that, and never mind anything else...

Marion, have you noticed that those who vote fraudulently vote for candidates of "your" party?

So you favor corruption. Not surprised.

You can have as many kids as you want. But somewhere along the line, taking personal responsibility for having those kids comes in. If I were flipping burgers for minimum wage, I'd think twice before I had as many kids as I could. And if they gave the burger flipper $30 an hour, do you know what you'd pay for a Happy Meal at the drive-in window? Then, you'd complain about that! If you don't like your lot in life, you might look at your party and the plantation they keep you on. And when they promise you half of what's in my bank account, don't keep on believing it for your vote. That's all they want..... your vote.
