Valid point. I heard it in a joke before. 'Smart girl calls dad and says, "Dad I think I'm going to be liberal." Dad: "why's that?" Smart girl: "Because I really want to help people." Dad: "Well, let's look at it this way. Take all those A's you made this semester and shave the points off some so that your room mate's grades will be better." Smart girl: "Heck no! I've worked so hard for my grades and she doesn't do anything, but drink and stay up all night and never goes to class!" Dad: "Welcome to the Republican party."
