But, it wasn't always that way. I remember when I turned 18 and registered to vote. Yes, that was a big deal to me, and I always vote. My father teased me for weeks, maybe longer. He could not believe that I registered as a Democrat. Those were the days! I really belived that social programs made a difference. Now I really only want kids programs, I want to decide how to spend my money... so I am Republican hear me roar! I love this cartoon, it really does speak to my political beliefs!
