I Am A Republican (February 7, 2011)

I received Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) when I was a youngster.

I received subsidized lunches while in grammar school.

I received municipal funding at the trade high school.

I received state-subsidized scholarships to attend college including free books.

I received a regular government pay check, socialized medicine and free quarters while in the service.

I received Medicaid to aid with the delivery of my child.

I received time away from work under the Family and Medical Leave Act to be with my young child.

I received a prompt and free response from the fire department when my kitchen caught fire.

I received unemployment insurance payments when I was laid off.

I received and still receive the mortgage interest deduction for the monthly mortgage interest payments for my house.

I received energy tax credits for improvements to my house.

I received a great sense of relief when my daughter and her young son started receiving Women, Infants and Children (WIC) welfare assistance.

I received a healthy inheritance tax-free from my uncle who received government farm subsidies all his life.

I received the yearly statement in November projecting my social security payments when I retire.

I did it all by myself.

I am a self-made man.

I am a Republican.
