Democrat to Republican - At Age 6 !!!!

An email story from a lawyer friend....

"I was talking to the daughter of a friend of mine. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?' She replied, 'I'd give houses to all the homeless people.'

'Wow - what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'You don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow my lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then we'll go over to the grocery store where a homeless guy hangs out and you can give him the $50 to use toward a new house.'

She thought that over for a few seconds 'cause she's only 6, and while her Mom glared at me, she looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work and you can just pay him the $50?'

And I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'

Her folks still aren't talking to me."
