The Evolution of Political Systems

I wish I could say I wrote this, but I didn’t.  This was something that I dowloaded about eight years ago and  found in my computer when I was looking for something else.  I hope you get a chuckle out of it.

I particularly like the last one.

-Smith

Pure democracy is when you have two cows. Your
neighbors decide who gets the milk.

Representative democracy is when you have two cows.
Your neighbors pick someone to tell you who gets the
milk.

Pure socialism is when you have two cows and the
government takes them and puts them in a barn with
everyone else’s cows. You have to take care of all the cows.
The government gives you as much milk as you need.

Bureaucratic socialism is when you have two cows and the
government takes them and puts them in barn with
everyone else’s cows. They are cared for by ex-chicken
farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the
government took from the chicken farmers. The
government gives you as much milk and eggs as the
regulations say you should need.

Pure communism is when you have two cows. Your
neighbors help you take care of them and you all share the
milk.

Russian communism is when you have two cows. You
have to take care of them, but the government takes all the
milk.

Cambodian communism is when you have two cows. The
government takes both and shoots you.

Dictatorship is when you have two cows. The government
takes both and drafts you.

Bureaucracy is when you have two cows. At first the
government regulates what you can feed them and when
you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them.
Then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours
the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out
forms accounting for the missing cows.

Surrealism is when you have two giraffes. The
government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

    LOL! I want to take harmonica lessons. Must I get the giraffes first?

    Yes. You must teach one giraffe to play the e-flat Theodore Roosevelt, while the other shops for maple trees in value added D minor….Bark!!

    Got that? 🙂

    Nope, I don’t have that at all. I like music, in fact I love it – but I wouldn’t know a b flat from a g sharp. Maybe I should start with the toy harmonicas and toy giraffes? LOL.
