they stand for themselves
Pretty much the same thing, the same misguided drug war, same bellicose foreign policy, same keynesian economics, same free trade (the one thing they usually get right), same contempt for civil liberties, etc. The only right sacred to a Democrat is that of a woman to get an abortion.
All they want is to keep the ones in charge, that are already in charge. There will be no real change, unless the ones in charge decide that they want even more control.
Republicans are 60% rural, 87% Lilly white, and stand for "traditional" values meaning medieval small governments and Victorian ideals best suited to their agrarian lifestyle. Democrats are 90% urban, multicultural, and stand for progressive values meaning bigger government, better infrastructure, and tolerant values best suited to their urban lifestyles.
What they each want is your vote. They each have platforms that will tell you what they think is important to achieve short and long-term for the nation. The fact is, if you want to get involved, you have to do more than vote. You have to help shape the issues being discussed. You have to talk to people, gather signatures sometimes, correspond with your elected officials, etc. Voting Pub, Dem or third party just isn't enough.
They both stand for the interests of the elites.
All I know is that the Republicans want to take away women's rights.
You know nothing then :)
really? how come?
They aren't saying,"TAKE AWAY WOMEN'S RIGHTS KAY?!" They want to protect the life of the unborn child, that is all. They do not want to take away any rights.
Yes but what if a girl was raped? would she be forced to have her rapist's child? what about ****** victims? would young girls be forced to carry their father's child? we can't force women to hold babies in their bodies for 9 months tho I do think that the women that keep getting pregnant and aborting their babies should be sterilized.
One stands in front of you to get your attention while the other picks your pocket.
