I understand that there are two parties: the democrat and the Republicans.
I know that the Republicans represent themselves through an elephant and are greedy.
Aside from that, I know nothing else.
You know nothing about politics.
Demoncrats will take all your money so that poor people can drive Cadillacs and have dozens of illegitimate babies.
trolls, any post with the word "democrat" used as an adjective is a troll post
Republicans will take your money,to give it to oil companies, telecoms, insurance firms and creationist theme parks. When they have spent all your money, they will then borrow more from China so they can keep lining the pockets of their friends. Also, they want to wipe out all forms of recreational sex.
Take everything you love about humanity. Strap a nuclear bomb to it. Detonate.
This is another post by the stupid question troll. Do not feed.
Republicans don't know the meaning of the word altruistic.
Democrats don't know the meaning of personal responsibility.
Both parties are doing a damn good job of signing the future to corporations and the ultra rich. Yet, as it stands with this lame two party system, The Democratic Party is the only hope for a successful future of the USA.
We need to abolish our democratic system and appoint a king and queen of the United States.
R11 You might want to find another place to live. America isn't the place for you.
R10. Examples please?
Actually, it is.
"I know that the Republicans represent themselves through an elephant and are greedy."
You already know more than most people.
Myself, for one.
Oh for fucks sake
Republicans want to take your money and give it to the big banks, tell you what you can do with your body, invade foreign countries, and violate your civil liberties.
Democrats want to do the same thing, but lie about it. They always vote to bailout big banks, support the drug war, make war overseas, and support the destruction of civil liberty. The difference is that the media will defend them.
Only libertarians, like Ron Paul, actually want to stop the bailouts of the banks, end the invasions, stop the drug war and restore civil liberty.
Google RON PAUL and LIBERTARIAN, OP- it will explain all you need to know about politics.
no, don't libertarians don't know shit about politics.
No, only libertarians understand politics, R19.
The rest actually believe the government is their friend, and does a good job, and would never kill you, or steal your life savings.
R20 tells it like it is!
Libertarians are dangerous for democracy.
Democrats are dangerous for democracy. They want to regulate every bit of our lives. I'm sick of the government knows what's best ideology that we have now
Yes, R23, then blame the House. Because republicans would rather have people blown up in the streets, the gestapo in the bedrooms and the moneyed to have access to labor for essentially free with no responsibility than to give people the freedom to live in an environment where they can pursue and realize the American dream.
OP, you either speak English as a second language very well or you completely failed, history, social studies and civics.
R23, Dems are no more dangerous than Reps.
They are both evil.
R24, the Democrats do the same. Obama has authorized drones to kill US citizens, bailed out big banks and corporations, and still supports the war on drugs. How is that different than Bush?
Did you find your answer? I hope you discovered that politics is all about lying, stealing, cheating and trying to cover it up and realized that Freedom and Liberty are the only alternative!
Start at the link.
has this last week- the IRS, Benghazi, wiretapping the AP- given you a clue about politics? Add the FED printing trillions of dollars to bail out the banks, the wars all over the world, the growing police state...well, you get the idea.
It is evil, and dirty, and the reason our country is in the shitter.
Abolish DC, devolve ALL powers to the local level, and allow people the freedom to create, interact, trade and prosper.
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what.
All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.
That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what ....These are people who pay no income tax.
OP is a good example of who is actually paying 18.00 to post here. Idiocy.
You're on dangerous ground.
Telling people that they aren't entitled to being taken care of by the government from cradle to grave, and that wealthy people aren't wrong for moving their wealth outside the US to shield it from the IRS, and that the government doesn't have the right to murder you if they think you might commit a crime...well, this isn't your kind of place.
star-bellied sneetches hate non-star-bellied sneetches. that is ALL you need to know,
otherwise, they are ALL liars.
Considering the level of discourse about the IRS scandal, and the "defenses" of such criminal behavior that any person with an IQ over room temp would see through, I think the OP is actually too smart for this place.
OP, I hope you've been following this thread you started.
Have you realized that politics is just like the mafia, but you vote for it?
Have you googled Rothbard, or Mises, or Rockwell?
That will help you understand the evil nature of killing, stealing and lying "For The Good Of The People" and why private property and liberty are what we need.
[quote]Democrats are dangerous for democracy. They want to regulate every bit of our lives.
Meanwhile Republicans just want to regulate every bit of our private lives.
R37, you're right.
Dems want to control our economic lives, while Reps want to control our personal lives.
Hmmmmmm, sounds like BOTH suck, and someone like Ron Paul that wants the government to leave our economic lives and personal lives alone has the right idea!!!
Anyone who votes Republican is an uneducated dolt voting against his or her own interests -- particularly if they are LGBT, a person of color, a woman, or a member of the working or middle class.
Mitt, what are you doing on a gay web site? Are you starting your 2016 presidential campaign early?
Democrats shriek and type insults and obscenities when a point is made about their party that they don't like. Republicans type another point. (See Posts 2-40 and the next 500 after this one.)
Everyone is so bitter, sheesh.
OP, here is the straight dope I got when I was younger and it still seems to hold today.
Democrats are mainly for the people or the common man. They see the world as a place where we have to help each other to not just survive but to flourish. They support things like civil rights, the environment, unions, basic health care and so on. They think the government, which is us the people are the ones who can help.
Republicans are mainly for the rich and corporations. They view the world as "every man for himself" or "pick yourself up by your own boot straps". They resent having to pay any taxes that might go to someone less fortunate than them because they see them as lazy, dependent users. They think a free market where business could do anything they want without laws will solve all the worlds problems. So they hate regulations of any kind (environmental, safety etc) and see the government as the enemy. They also love war, because they make money and show how powerful we are as a country. This is why most of the military votes Republican.
Republicans start wars,
Democrats end them.
This thread is a dog whistle for trolls.
R42 nailed it. If you were actually serious, OP, there's your answer.
Republicans are racist assholes without empathy or sympathy. Democrats have the right ideas but are extremely lethargic at getting shit done, and Libertarians are elitists who think they're smarter than everyone else.
I would like to dismantle your "argument" but it's bedtime- I have an early meeting.
Your ability to parrot the "dominant narrative" makes me sad, especially since you say "Democrats are mainly for the people or the common man" without any irony.
Now that we know they're spying 24/7 and murdering anyone they want, do you understand politics?
The people we elect spy, cheat, kill, destroy and steal with no fear of prosecution, as long as they support the big banks, big corporations, and the unions.
There, that explains politics.
