I think a better analogy would be to describe HOW the effects of Democrat socialist policies are like a sugary dessert TO A DIABETIC!!! You see, the vegetables are better for you, will make you physically and mentally stronger and fit, but they don't taste as good as chocolate donuts, or cake. It's easy to convince a child to eat sweet tasting desserts then eat their veggies. However, a steady diet of desserts will sicken you; and for diabetics it will eventually KILL you!
I know several diabetics who inject insulin daily. They know desserts are poison to them, but they eat them anyway, and wind up in the hospital. Democrats are like Diabetics, they just can't stay away from sweets of socialism, which threatens to kill all of US someday!
