    1. You have to believe that the nation's current 8-year prosperity was due to the work of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, but yesterday's gasoline prices are all Clinton's fault.
    2. You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own.
    3. You have to be against all government programs, but expect Social Security checks on time.
    4. You have to believe that AIDS victims deserve their disease, but smokers with lung cancer and overweight individuals with heart disease don't deserve theirs.
    5. You have to appreciate the power rush that comes with sporting a gun.
    6. You have to believe...everything Rush Limbaugh says.
    7. You have to believe that the agricultural, restaurant, housing and hotel industries can survive without immigrant labor.
    8. You have to believe God hates homosexuality, but loves the death penalty.
    9. You have to believe society is color-blind and growing up black in America doesn't diminish your opportunities, but you still won't vote for Alan Keyes.
    10. You have to believe that pollution is OK as long as it makes a profit.
    11. You have to believe in prayer in schools, as long as you don't pray to Allah or Buddha.
    12. You have to believe Newt Gingrich and Henry Hyde were really faithful husbands.
    13. You have to believe speaking a few Spanish phrases makes you instantly popular in the barrio.
    14. You have to believe that only your own teenagers are still virgins.
    15. You have to be against government interference in business, until your oil company, corporation or Savings and Loan is about to go broke and you beg for a government bail out.
    16. You love Jesus and Jesus loves you and, by the way, Jesus shares your hatred for AIDS victims, homosexuals, and President Clinton.
    17. You have to believe government has nothing to do with providing police protection, national defense, and building roads.
    18. You have to believe a poor, minority student with a disciplinary history and failing grades will be admitted into an elite private school with a $1,000 voucher.

    icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif I don't know what to say! If she really said these things, I only wish she felt the same and would have said nothing! Then again if it is true (how to be a good republican), well I still don't know what to say!

    Hah! I see, she was a Democrat making a Republican joke icon_lol.gif

    Ann had a great sense of humor... as evident above.... We Republicans have a similar list as well re democrats.

    She may have been tuff, but she was a class act-even for a democrat
    [italics were to point out that I just couldn't be totally nice about Ann, after all every Repub is an evil out for money ignorant redneck gun totin, idiot and I must maintain the extreme lefts' beliefs, lol]

    That is Awesome.. I'm gonna print it up and post it at work for my Republican boss

    He just ranted and raved during last Tuesdays election because we had a local millage on the ballot to help fund the Detroit Zoo ( He said the 15,000,000 a year it would generate is way more than it takes to run a zoo and that the Dems are just lining their pockets with the money... IT"S RUN BY AN INDEPENDENT NON PROFIT! )

    whata douche

    I don't know where this list came from, but I'll almost guarantee it didn't come from Ann Richards. Various versions of the "How to be a good Republican" and "How to be a good Democrat" lists have been circulating, usually unattributed, for years.

    For one, it smacks of urban legend. Just like the alleged writing of George Carlin - "I'm a Bad American", which was not, in fact, written by Carlin. Secondly, one of the things mentioned is gas prices. Richards died in September 2006, when gas prices were still below $2 a gallon.

    Agreed, Ann Richards was a great American but she did not author that list. It isn't witty enough for her by half any way.
