I'm voting....

this just in: "I'm Voting Republican: You'll Get What You Deserve"

the video is 3:28 long. take a few, sit back, enjoy, and learn why I'm voting republican. NOT!

the movie was written and directed by charlie steak and produced by SyntheticHuman Pictures. everyone worked on the film for free. contributions from individuals paid for most of the expenses.



from the I'm voting republican website:

A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE SEGMENTS OF THE MOVIE:

"We just love cheap plastic crap from China"

Wal-Mart is the largest retailer in the United States. It is the largest retailer in the world.

Its revenue in 2007 was $351.1 billion dollars. That exceeds the GDP (gross domestic product) of at least 155 of the world’s countries. 70% of Wal-Mart’s sales are of items manufactured in China.

Wal-Mart has resisted providing adequate and meaningful health care coverage for its workers and has prevented its U.S. employees from forming unions. Wal-Mart pays most of its workers less than the amount needed to live on. (Starting pay for a cashier is less than $8 per hour. That’s less than $16,000.00 a year. The federal poverty level for a family of four in 2006 was $20,444.)

From the Democratic Party Agenda

Democrats believe that the most effective way to increase opportunity for our families is a high quality, good paying job. The Democratic Party supports fair trade agreements that raise standards for all workers here and abroad, while making American businesses more competitive, and we don’t believe in tax giveaways that reward companies for moving American jobs overseas.

We will create jobs that stay in America and restore opportunity for all Americans, starting with raising the minimum wage, expanding Pell grants and making college tuition tax deductible.
thanks mj for sending me the link to this absolutely brilliant video.

I think my favorite characters were gramma and the cheerleader, but they were all good.

AHAHAHAH!

Yeah, just vote Republican if you want to send the country into the toilet/sewer once and for all.

Wal-Mart is evil. I never ever go there. EVER. Good thing there aren't that many near me anyway. I prefer Target any day.

I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart I don't want to be anywhere near it. I will pay more for the same thing elsewhere. Unfortunately, there are many places where Wal-Mart has eliminated any competitors and people have no other choice. So much for Democracy. "I'm voting Republican because I don't feel I deserve health care" that's classic.
