In response to the 17 rules for being a Republican thread, I came up with some rules of my own. As I have a bit of homework yet to do tonight, I was only able to come up with 8 rules. Let me know if you come up with any others or have any constructive suggestions. Just a quick 8 rules to bring you up to speed on what you need to believe to be a Democrat 1. Paying people not to work, while taxing those who do work, is the best way to solve unemployment. 2. All corporate CEOs are immoral, selfish, greedy people while politicians are honest, virtuous, selfless people who only have our nations best interest in mind. 3. If you simply ignore terrorists, theyll go away. 4. Killing a baby one minute after its birth is homicide, but killing that same baby a minute earlier is a womans right. 5. Although our nations best colleges and universities are private institutions, privatizing education does not work. 6. Banning weapons from schools and other public places will make us all safer because would be armed robbers and murderers will respect the "No Weapons" sign. 7. Our hospitals would run much better if run by the government, just like the DMV. 8. Raising the minimum wage is a great idea because American employers will be eager to hire more American workers at this higher wage, as opposed to simply shipping those jobs overseas.
