If I ever become the manager of the mom-and-pop used-book store I work at, I’m going to advertise that anybody with a Republican-registered voter card gets an additional 10% off their purchase.
“That’s not fair,” whines the liberal. “You can’t discriminate.”
Shut your mouth. I’ll run my business how I want to. If you don’t like it, go to the next bookstore and boycott me. Learn the free market, baby.
Now, why would I give Republicans a discount? Why would I make it cheaper for Republicans to enjoy this small, daytime excursion than for Democrats?
Well, what political party has made life so expensive? What political party has made family outings rarer and rarer as their incomes drop and commodities prices rise? Which political party loves taxing the everliving guts out of everything, and loves taking people’s hard-earned money for their own pet projects?
The Democrats. The Democrats vote to burden everybody with a more expensive life; the Republicans do not. Republicans vote to make life cheaper to live.
So screw you, Democrats, but I’m going to give Republicans an extra discount. You’ve made them suffer by taking away more of their money, so you’re going to suffer by paying more at my store.
Don’t like it? Then you have two choices:
- Get out of my store, or
- Stop electing people who make life more expensive, and I won’t make your shopping excursion more expensive.
