5. Constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage
Which, after all, is the true source of all our problems, including rising rates of uncle abuse and the rash of teens using the 12-letter "s" word.

13. Push for a new Statute
one that denies that any of these problems exist.
Add a sub-referendum eradicating the eleventh day of September. September 31 will be added.
First day of spring will remain September 22 to avoid confusion.

16. Well, Hank, If *I* were a Republican...
I would solve the nations problems by killing myself and encouraging all of my fellow Republicans to do the same.

But then, I'm not a Republican.

21. Change the flag salute to "one nation, under a very forgiving and wonderful God, with..."
I would add sarcasm here if I thought it'd help.

23. And then scream "NO!" and "YOU LIE!" - but if they were REALLY capable of honesty.
You know the word they would use.

24. If I were a Republican.... it would be in my DNA to CREATE problems, not to solve them...
...so the only solution would be suicide.

25. The question is an oxymoron
It's like asking, "if you were an open flame, how would you cool things down?"
