Teach One to Earn Or Force Others to Give

For some time now, I have been looking for definitive ways to articulate the ideological divide between Republicans and Democrats. Take taxes for example. How does one articulate that the compassion offered by Democrat policies does nothing more than feed a gluttonous bureaucracy at the expense of the family budget? Perhaps the following from a traveling email will help:

The Differences Between A Republican & Democrat . . . I'll keep it simple.

Senators Fred Thompson and Hillary were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person. DC has a lot of them.

The Republican, Fred Thompson, gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.

Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Thompson's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5.

Now, do you understand the difference?
