A Father Daughter Talk
A young woman was about to finish her first year of
college. Like so many
others her age she considered herself to be a very
liberal Democrat and was
for distribution of all wealth. She felt deeply
ashamed that her father
was a rather staunch Republican which she expressed
One day she was challenging her father on his
beliefs and his opposition
to higher taxes on the rich and more welfare
programs. In the middle of her
heart felt diatribe based upon the lectures she had
from her far left
professors at her school, he stopped her and asked
her point blank, how
she was doing in school.
She answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0
GPA, and let him know
that it was tough to maintain. That she had to study
all the time, never had
time to go out and party like other people she knew.
She didn't even have time
for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college
friends because of
spending all her time studying. That she was taking
a more difficult
Her father listened and then asked, "How is your
friend Mary." She replied,
"Mary is barely getting by", she continued, "all she
has is barely a 2.0
GPA" adding, "and all she takes are easy classes and
she never studies."
But to explain further she continued emotionally,
"But Mary is so very popular
on campus, college for her is a blast, she goes to
all the parties all the
time and very often doesn't even show up for classes
because she is too
hung over."
Her father then asked his daughter, "Why don't you
go to the Dean's office
and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your 4.0 GPA and
give it to her friend who
only had a 2.0." He continued, "That way you will
both have a 3.0 GPA and
certainly that would be a fair equal distribution of
The daughter visibly shocked by the fathers
suggestion angrily fired back,
"That wouldn't be fair! I worked really hard for
mine, I did without and
Mary has done little or nothing, she played while I worked real hard!" The father slowly smiled and said,
"Welcome to the Republican Party."
