  • If you're for family values and you vote Republican, you're not for family values.


  • If you're for limited government and you vote Republican, you're not for limited government.


  • If you're pro-America and you support teach alternatives to evolution, you're not pro-America.


  • If you're anti-tax but you want to be able to call 911 in an emergency, you're not anti-tax.


  • If you're anti-government but you want the potholes filled in the road, you're not anti-government.


  • If you're against government healthcare but are on Medicare, you're not against government healthcare.


  • If you're against single-provider healthcare but are in the VA system, you're not against single-provider healthcare.
