Difference Between Democrat and Republican

Citizens registered as an Independent, Democrat or Republican.

Democrats and Republicans are the two main parties in the United States. While recently moderate and alternative parties have become more prominent, Democrats and Republicans remain the two historically largest parties, which hold the majority of the seats in the Senate and in the House of Representatives. Democrats and Republicans have opposing views and positions on several key issues, including economic, political, military and social matters.

History and symbols

The Democratic Party is associated to the famous Democratic donkey, which first appeared during Democrat Andrew Jackson’s 1828 presidential campaign. After his opponent called him a donkey, Jackson decided to use the image of the animal – which he believed to be smart, brave and strong-willed – on his campaign posters. The symbol became famous when the cartoonist Thomas Nast used the donkey in newspaper cartoons1. The Democratic Party started in 1828 as anti-Federal faction and grew to become one of the leading political forces of the United States.

The Republican Party – also known as GOP, Grand Old Party – is associated to the Republican elephant. In 1874, Thomas Nast introduced the elephant in one of his cartoons and, with time, the strong and dignified animal became the symbol of the Republican Party2. The GOP started in 1854 – few years later than its Democratic counterpart – to stop slavery, which was viewed as unconstitutional.

Democrat vs Republican3

The main difference between the two parties is, indeed, their political orientation. The Democratic Party is left-leaning, liberal and usually associated with progressiveness and equality. The Republican Party, instead, is right-leaning, traditional and associated with equity and economic freedom and with the ideal of “survival of the fittest”.

Given their different origins and opposing political orientations, the two parties clash on a number of fundamental issues4:


  • Republicans believe that both rich and poor should pay the same share of taxes (and possibly receive tax cuts). Even if large tax cuts may lead to a decrease in the revenue collected by the government, Republicans believe that, after tax reductions, rich people and entrepreneurs would be more likely to invest and create jobs – thus initiating a trickledown effect that would eventually benefit the entire society. Republicans also oppose raising minimum wages as such increase could hurt small businesses; and

  • Democrats believe in raising taxes for the upper class and lowering taxes for the lower and middle class to allow the government to boost spending for social programs for lower class

Gun laws

  • Republicans oppose gun control laws and believe that one should be able to obtain ammunitions with no registration. Republicans also strongly support the right of self-defense; and

  • Democrats are in favor of an increase in arm control but recognize that the Second Amendment is an important part of the American tradition and that the right to use firearms should be preserved. Democrats advocate for the reinstatement of the assault weapons ban and believe that the government should make the background check system stronger.

Voter ID laws

  • Republicans are requesting photo identification for voting: they believe that such measure would prevent cases of election fraud; and

  • Democrats believe that everyone has the right to vote and oppose photo identification, as they believe it may be discriminatory.


  • Republicans, largely influenced by religion and tradition, believe that the government should restrict abortion. In fact, Republicans think that an unborn child has the fundamental right to live which cannot be taken away; and

  • Democrats support Roe vs Wade and believe that a woman should have the right to make her own decisions regarding her pregnancy and that the government has no right to get involved with any woman’s pregnancy. Instead of eliminating abortion, Democrats want to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies by enhancing the level of sex education in all schools. An increased awareness would also reduce the number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases.

Same-sex marriages

  • Republicans do not agree with same-sex marriages and believe that a marriage should be between a man and woman only. Republicans also think that gay couples should not be able to adopt children; and

  • Democrats oppose same-sex discrimination at Federal state level and believe that same sex couples should have the same rights as heterosexual couples, including the right to adopt a child.

Limits of the government

  • Republicans believe that a smaller government is better. According to the Republican view, the government should have less responsibilities and should not interfere in the economic sphere; and

  • Democrats believe that the government should have a strong role in helping and supporting Americans. The intervention of the government in the public sphere includes the creation of regulation for businesses and for the health care system.


  • Republicans are in favor of strong border controls and push for limits to immigration – in particular from certain countries. Republicans believe that a tighter control on immigration would benefit American workers and would reduce the risks related to terrorist attacks. The Muslim Ban proposed by President Trump few days after the beginning of his mandate is a clear example of the stance of the Republican Party with regard to immigration and integration5; and

  • Democrats are generally more favorable to open immigration policies. Indeed, they do not believe that there should be no control and that anyone should be allowed in the country and granted asylum; but they believe that the process to request asylum should be quicker and that mass deportation is not the solution to all problems related to terrorism and unemployment.

Death penalty

  • Traditionally, Republicans are in favor of death penalty and believe it is a just punishment for certain crimes; and

  • Most Democrats are against death penalty and believe that capital punishment should be commuted into life sentences.

Health care

  • Republicans support private health care systems and believe that the regulation of the national health care system should not be entirely in the hands of the government; and

  • Democrats support public universal health care and believe that the government should intervene to assist Americans who struggle to cover their health care expenses.

Individual vs collective rights

  • Republicans believe in individual rights and in the “survival of the fittest”; and

  • Democrats believe in collective rights over individual rights.

While the differences between the two parties are clear, not all Democrats have the same ideas and not all Republicans support all the traditional beliefs of the GOP. The two parties have become so big that it is almost impossible to understand where they really stand on certain issues. For instance, while traditionally Republicans are against abortion and in favor of death penalty, there are cases in which Republican representatives have expressed their support for free choice and have condemned the use of capital punishment.

Furthermore, while Republicans traditionally advocate for a “small government” that should not interfere in the private sphere, they do support some “big government” stances when they insist on the need of imposing government regulations on abortion. In the same way, while Democrats advocate for a “big government” that should intervene in economic and social decisions, they support free choice and believe that the government should have no say on abortion and should not interfere with a woman’s pregnancy.


The Democratic and the Republican Party are the two main forces that have shaped the political scenario of the United States since the 19th century. It is interesting to note that in the past few decades, Democrat and Republican Presidents have been constantly alternating. Such tendency shows that the American society remains deeply divided over key issues.

The traditional, right-leaning Republican Party opposes the liberal, left-leaning Democratic Party on economic, social and political matters:

  • Republicans believe in strong border controls, in tax cuts, in the use of firearms and in death penalty. They are against abortion, same-sex marriages and support private health care systems; and

  • Democrats support open immigration policies, believe that rich people should pay higher taxes, advocate for more regulations in the use of firearms and oppose death penalty. They are in favor of free choice, support same-sex marriage and adoption rights for same-sex couples and believe that the government should intervene in economic and social matters, including health care.

However, the two parties are so large and diverse that it is quite complex to understand where they really stand and to identify the line that clearly separates them. In fact, we can find extremists and moderates on both sides and the evolution of the national and international assets often leads people to change views and perspectives on key issues, including immigration, gun control, death penalty, same-sex marriage and abortion. Therefore, while the traditional stances of the Democratic and the Republican Party are quite different, the reality is rather blurred and their positions do not oppose as neatly.

LMAO, just like clarence “UNCLE TOM” thomas!! his black AS% didn’t have ONE issue with using affirmative action to get into college, but as soon as he graduated ALL the sudden affirmative action was of the DEVIL!

Anyway she’s a AS%HOLE just like her husband! she’s knee deep in politics and she should be investigated because of her shoe shining husband!! Therefore calling paul ryan a viable presidential candidate is just another bone head REPUBLICAN wet dream!! but maybe if ryan keeps playing ZEPPELIN that will have the black and hispanic vote come his way LMFAO!!!

    • Wow, that is one of the most racist things I’ve ever read.

      • That Mandell … Mandango reference made me wanna’ go to the Winky Dinky Dog and get me some Hoe Cakes.

        • @minerva under different circumstances(INTERNET) I’d probably enjoy talking with you because I don’t believe for one minute you really mean half the crap you say, I think you enjoy ruffling peoples feathers over the internet. Listen it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference what ANYONE SAYS here!!, the facts are the facts! the republican party is dying! Just face reality! the GOP has ratings lower than they’d ever had!! their party is 90% caucasian!! LMFAO LACK of diversify alone will kill the GOP!! anyone with ANY COMMON SENSE would study the USA’s demographics on RACE!! caucasians won’t be the majority in america by 2035??? I believe. hispanics are the no.1 minority in america and growing!! thats why carl rove says, if the republican party doesn’t change it’s policies towards hispanics the party is DEAD!! go check for yourself!! But of course no republican wants to accept the truth so of course they won’t google what rove said. The republican party was a half way decent party about 60 years ago, they were a very good party 150 years ago, now their just a pack of angry white people pissed off because god didn’t intend for a democrat especially a BLACK democrat to be president and defeat the mighty GOP by over 13 MILLION votes in two elections!! GO LOOK THAT UP TOO, oh I forgot, republicans don’t have thin skins and can handle the TRUTH!! IN A PIGS EYE!!! LOL

        • BTW, if your having fantasies about Mandingo’s “WINGY DINGY’s” as YOU call it, you’ve obviously having bigger issues than being a republican!! does your wife know about your fascination about BLACK men’s penises??? just askin’ @minerva LMAO

      • LMFAO! now I’m a racist!??? you righties are pathetic! your knee jerk responses are so predictable!! whenever someone accurately exposes one of your tribesmen, you start that whining BULL$HIT!! race baiting crap! because I called clarence thomas a UNCLE TOM!! that’s funny!! news flash @minerva!! I’m a proud BLACK MAN! guess that blew away your juvenile attempt at playing the RACE card!! scumbags comes in ALL colors and genders! YOU MEATHEAD!!

  2. On Mlk’s bday celebration: Democrats tapped his phone; Republican’s tapped his brain to strengthen civil rights legislation.

    • Here we go again!!!!!! MLK phone tap??!!! that was WHEN?? @mineva, stop playing the part of a FOOL!! we get it!! you hate the democratic party but don’t you look like a DAMNED FOOL! bitching about stuff from the 1960’s?????????????!!!! listen obviously you’ve ignored my HUNDREDS of challenges to you, name ONE racist policy of the dems TODAY!!!!! when someone needs to debate facts with data from over half a CENTURY I believe that destroys ANY credibility spewing from their pie hole . and you wonder why republicans always get insults hurled at them!! anyone who says FOOLISH nonsense should be treated as such and then IGNORED!!

  3. What is it with Conservatives? Everything that they don’t like, it’s a “liberal conspiracy” … Really????

    FCOL!!!!! Grow up, if you are really THAT naive, then you DESERVE to be a Tea Farty Moron.

    • Lol. What are you going to do now, throw food? Apparently, (some) Dems react like ill behaved children, yelling,calling names, and just being irrational when someone shows the Den was mistaken.

      Bil: What are you talking about? Knight is arguing the Dem side.

      Maybe no one explained to you the concept of debate. There is a topic about which one presents evidence. Others admit or refute the concept by using evidence. No response is equivalent to losing on that point. Yelling, a sign of fear, is looked down upon, as is name calling.

      I’ll give you another chance. The topic was minimum wage. You/Dem side was to give the man a fish, mine/Rep was to teach the man to fish. Go on …

      • WTF are you talking about? I wasn’t talking about ANY minimum wage???!! but that BULLSHIT attempt to twist scripture was pathetic!! Jesus taught personal responsible to the RICH and the POOR!! funny how you republicans only misquote the bible to prop up your BULLSHIT IDEAS!! first off try reading the bible before exposing your republican FOOLISHNESS!! Jesus hung out with the SICK – THE POOR! and what did he tell his disciples to do???? sell all your material wealth and follow ME. What did Jesus say about the mentality of the RICH? a rich man going to heaven is like a camel getting through the eye of a needle!! @minerva, you’re so hopelessly IGNORANT that the RICH have brainwashed POOR idiots like yourself to cheerlead on their behalf!! what a damn FOOL! your bowing down to corporate america for FREE!! you don’t even get a paycheck from them! you do it for FREE! LMAO. listen BOZO tell your grandchildren how minimum wage is so horrible when their looking for THEIR first JOB!!

        • Minimum wage was referring to Billodot, not you. You were supposed to address the “Southern Strategy” – which I totally wiped you over about showing it had nothing to do with race.

          I’d be happy to discuss it with you, if you can stay on topic.

          Remember – facts, not anecdotes and emotion …

        • I’m a Democrat and I’m ashamed that you are representing us.
          You are rude, unprofessional, and not acting in any kind of manner that will get your point across.

          Minerva, on behalf of those of us able to carry a conversation, I apologize. Please don’t judge all of us based on these few.

          • @threepointrest, you’re no democrat , nice try! you republican types are so transparent, if you don’t approve of my style of exposing YOUR beloved GOP , thats fine with me but YOU exposed yourself as a CONservative when you FOOLISHLY apologised to @minvera, because ANY rational thinking human being reading that individuals GOP propaganda wouldn’t apologise to them PERIOD! LMAO listen @threepointrest, stop playing that FAKE “I’M A DEMOCRAT” nonsense instead of doing what republicans typically do, jumping on the internet and crying like BABIES! fix your damn party! turn FUX NEWS OFF! and kick out the clive bundy, donald sterling, bill o’reilly, glen beck. sean klannity, sarah palin racist you allow to represent YOU.

          • You’re apologising???? lol you FOOLISH republicans, you love jumping on the internet and type up some of the nastier, meanest , RACIST post on Earth but when someone finally punches YOU back in the mouth you republicans start crying like little GIRLS! LMAO. First of three years ago I tried talking with republicans on a VERY civil and ultra respectful manner and where did that get me?? called every FILTHY name up under the sun, so @threepointrest, you that your phony “I’M A DEMOCRAT” BS you’re a republicans doing what republicans do, LIE and RANT lol You republican types LOVE to dish it out but you sure as hell can’t take it!! LMAO the party of NEO CONFEDERATES are really thin skinned, try going a pair @threepointrest. you FAKER

          • Three point,

            Obviously you have not been reading long enough to know where Minerva has gone and is willing to go… what Knight and I are doing is called stooping to their level.

            Minnie is a typical Con Troll, punching and jabbing until they get a rise from the other side, and THEN taking the high road as if they were there all along.

            At least with the Dems, you get what you see, passion and all, NOT some holier than thou preachy disingenuous jackwagon
            constantly moving the target and changing the subject when proven incorrect.
            It really isn’t about the issues with Republican’ts it is all about winning, right or wrong. Once they win, then they hand everything over to their big money donors and stick it to the middle class…

            WE don’t matter to them, and as for the fate of the country?— Even LESS it is all about the cash. They would sooner give away the farm, and then back into their gated compounds than diminish the ever-widening gap between the elite and the soiled masses…

          • @threepointrest – See, it’s here that I am overcome w/temptation to say something like, “Another difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Republicans can be gracious, but Democrats can’t.” I think that’s why Bill thinks whatever he does about me. But, really, I’m pointing out how absurd it is to say that you most certainly cannot be a Democrat but must instead be a Republican because you said something nice. (shakes head. rolls eyes.) Anyway, thank you again. I already know Democrats are equally able to be nice, and am glad you posted because now Dems have a post from someone who actually represents them, instead of embarrasses them.

    • gentlemen, don’t be impolite to each other. republican and democrats are ready to work hard for Israel, not for America. Didn’t you hear their oath of loyalty to that foreign country?

      • Im not replying to anyone in particular, but i see several mistakes… When people act childish and ignorant, childish… And ignorant things tend to happen. Grow up and stop arguing like a little rebel and have a real conversation… That will get your point across more than anything, a posative, determined, humble, and respective view. Worry about whats good for US… Not I. This country is the downfall of it’s self… And ignorant over sized infants are the cause.


  4. Democrats are more thin skinned, and Republicans find things with better humor – according to SNL’s Lorne Michaels explaining why they pick on Republicans more (so they obviously do): Republicans are easier for us than Democrats. Democrats tend to take it personally; Republicans think it’s funny. http://www.vulture.com/2014/01/lorne-michaels-on-tonight-show-snl.html

  5. BTW, republicans aren’t “THIN SKINNED” HUH? wasn’t it glenn beck getting on television CRYING like a old woman about capitalism, communism, liberals, democrats, marxism ETC ETC? republicans are typically the biggest PUSSYS on earth!! republicans aren’t “THIN SKINNED” wasn’t it limbaugh who served up BULL$HIT to his sheepies about how evil and unamerican the ACLU was but when his FAT got caught abusing prescription drugs and he was scared $HITLESS guess who FATBOY went CRYING to?? the F(CKING ACLU!! and by the way I see our local republican A$S kisser is back again with another heep of republican HORSE$HIT, FUX most trust news source???!! thats why canada doesn’t even broadcast that HORSE$HIT, in their country!! thats WHY FUX NEWS is register with the FCC as a ENTERTAIMENT network!! why the F(CK would a legitimate NEWS organization register as a ENTERTAIMENT network?? LMFAO!! Last point, our resident republican cheerleader forgot to tell everybody that FUX has been losing viewers since 2007 I believe!? and of course MR BULL$HITER forgot to tell everybody that FUX doesn’t attract hardly ANY viewers between the ages of 25- 54!! the average FUX viewer is over 65!! what does that tell you?? you have a audience that’s LITERALLY DYING!! just like the GOP!!

    • I think you need to calm down there buddy…

      • I think you are a Republican troll in Dem clothing…

      • @ Threepointrest. I have lots of friends who are Democrats and find you representative of them. I have regularly said that the real differences are philosophical, no one should make the mistake of actually trusting either side, and for each side the politicians love to get us emotionally involved because it makes it easier to get our vote and separate us from our money. In truth, they get us to fight among ourselves, then all go out to eat and drink together.

        Knight represents the fringe on both sides. I get a hoot out of his repetitive rants (though the constant faux/fux news, racist, GOP dying ones are so frequent they became tiresome.) Bill is more rational, but he, too, let’s his bias get ahead of a good discussion. I enjoyed discussions with them because doing the research solidified my views about the subject. Admittedly, I have been playful – mostly in response to Knight because sometimes it is just irresistible to occasionally say something equally outrageous as he says, just to give a little good natured poke. I thought I was getting on with Bill, then he left the discussion. Neither provide evidence of their viewpoint, which I find frustrating.

        I am not a Republican, more a libertarian. I have played the Devil’s Advocate, but only to balance the blind talking point/stereotype regurgitation that these two have done. And, I have provided solid evidence of almost everything I’ve said. (Bill, please cite examples of your claims about me being a Con Troll.).

        Thank you for your kind words. I would enjoy a good discussion. Take care, all.

    • wow… the anger is not needed.

    • Knight4444 You, my friend are showing your true colors. You type your capital letter words, I can feel your anger, your cuss words and hatred. We all have to learn to get along I am not Republican or Democrat. I am a American that is fed up with what our country is turning into! This fighting between the party’s has to stop. We need to take back our country. We can not keep giving money to everyone, giving healthcare to everyone, raise the minimum wage for entry level jobs. How much longer do you think we will survive if we keep going the path we are on. I don’t blame one or the other, I blame, us the people that we have let us get to the place we are now. We need to get it fixed now before its to late. God Bless America we need it!

      • Businesses that employ minimum wage workers cannot stay open and pay a higher wage for their employees. The economy is too bad for that to happen. When you go to McDonald’s do you want to pay a lot for your food so minimum wage can go up? Plus wait for a long time for your food because they’re short handed due to their inability to pay enough workers? These type of businesses are among the millions that are surviving this ever changing nation. See, when I hear people say what they say without thought, I wonder, why they would want to screw up the businesses that are still alive and generating jobs and revenue. Raising the minimum wage would have a crippling effect on millions of businesses that much of our tax dollars come from. It would kill off billions of jobs because they cannot pay high wages and sell dollar burgers. It’s like putting $2,000 wheels on a $50 car. Now maybe jobs that pay a salary could increase, or women be paid the same as men, then your actually talking about something.

        • I always find it funny how many champion the raise of minimum wage, thinking they must work for much more than that. Having worked at minimum wage for most of my life, I have found that every major increase in minimum wage was accompanied with a raise in cost as around me, negating or in some cases reducing my spending ability. So for your average minimum wage worker, things will be no better and possibly worse. In reality, a minimum wage increase usually makes those making just over minimum wage suddenly poorer as I found out in my last job when I finally made it out of minimum wage, for a short time I had a good income then when wages moved from $5 something to $7 something, my $10/hr suddenly bought less. It’s great to want more for people but that would be better served limiting profit amounts made by insurances that are mandated by law, barely cover anything, get out of paying, yet still command high fees for massive profits.

  6. Difference between republicans and democrats?? I literally could go hours on that one but how about for our devoted and hopelessly delusional republican CULT members, just take a look at former GOP governor Charlie Crist new book about how the republican party has gone extreme right! or checkout Ana Rivas Logan former congresswoman of Florida. and why she abandoned the G O P- the republican party is DYING and the halfway SANE members are abandoning ship!

    • Charlie Crist? You mean the guy even liberals called a RINO and an opportunist. The one who Florida wouldn’t vote in a second time, but he wouldn’t believe it when so he became an Independent and then a Democrat and still couldn’t get elected … instead Florida went with the Tea Party candidate? And Ana Rivas Logan … isn’t she the one they said shouldn’t run w/Crist because she too was a one termer who only switched parties because she, too, was virtually unelectable once anyone got a taste of who she was?

      Why do you always use such terrible examples? Seriously, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

      “The one who Truth is, Crist was a RINO (Republican In Name Only) for many years. He positioned himself as a conservative to keep those in his own party happy. But his actions spoke otherwise.

      As governor from 2007 to 2011, Crist bucked the GOP on items such as voting rights and environmental issues.

      He staunchly opposed oil drilling off Florida’s shores until fuel prices shot up in 2008, then quickly changed his mind back when running for the senate after the BP disaster in 2010. Many Republicans believe his order to restore felons voting rights, and increase early voting hours helped President Obama carry the state in 2008.”


      • You are a riot! LOL A- I didn’t “WIFF” on the southern strategy conversation, I know the story you just stumbled on it just here recently and of course being the typical republican you are you completely SCREWED it up. B- charlie crist left the republican party just like Anna Rivis Logan realises the GOP isn’t A- CONSERVATIVE- B- it’s been co- opted by corporate american (KOCH BROTHERS ETC) that’s why Collin Powell finally woke up but in your drug induced mind, anyone who doesn’t subscribe to carl rove and grover norquist their just RINO”S!! wow I feel bad for you, because your lame excuse for ANYBODY to wake up and realize to GOP is full of religious nut cases,(MICHELE BACHMANN) foaming at the racist (TED NUGENT) or just plain CRAZY in your book is a RINO, may God have mercy on your lost soul lol BTW hows McConnell liking that tea party thingy?? the tea party told him to go get FU^KED because they want to run THEIR candidate against Grimes in KY!! the tea party is ripping your beloved GOP to shreds LMFA

    • please tell I have a report due about democrat vs republic

      • democrats are socialist, and they basically are for the poor people, and gay marriages, and they believe that millionaires should pay extra taxes because they have companies that generate millions of dollars, and can pay. Many millionaires evade paying tax dollars by cheating on their taxes, and that can be a big deal to the americans who pay taxes so our bills get paid. thats less money in the pot that could benefit everyone, not just self. republicans don’t believe in welfare, or SSI and they want tax laws in affect that prevent them from paying high taxes. It’s different than when the founding fathers created our government because we are no longer 13 colonies, nor are we the north and south. democrats want to practice social equality, by certain principals, i.e. gay rights, and rights for the people. republicans dont believe in same sex marriages, and are pro life.

  7. Minerva,

    The biggest problem is the only thing Republicans are interested in is winning. They take position that they think will win, regardless of whether it is a complete opposite of the position they took three days prior.

    There are only three issues in the GOP handbook that never change, Guns, Gays, and Abortion. Everything else is up for grabs.

    It was Newt Gingrich that said a national health care plan would only work if it had an individual mandate.
    In fact, almost every idea that Obama has presented on taxes, immigration, the military, and a range of other topics was once a GOP idea… as soon as Obama suggested them, all of a sudden the GOP was against it.

    The Republicans are Chameleons, fair weather friends, and unreliable to take a position and stay with it. Unfortunately,
    they are a poor judge of the public opinion and how it is trending, always ending up a couple years short.

    Their ONLY strength is adversarial. They are good at making the other guy look evil, but hold no ideas or solutions of their own, just criticism of the other side and their IDEAS….. is that DEBATE enough for you Minnie?

    • Are you talking about Charlie Crist? Oh wait, he went Democrat.

    • I like the civility  But, you still present no evidence nor a clear topic.

      Since the topic is Difference, your premise, by definition, must be that what you claim of the Republicans is not true of the Democrats.

      I contend that there is:
      1 No difference in the need to win by any politician or their ardent supporters, and that
      2 Democrats are more likely to change positions.

      Point 1. Each party exists by driving their constituents into an emotional frenzy so they are in such a panic they will part with money and vote to keep the world from collapsing – which would be guaranteed if someone from the other party wins, because they want to destroy America. Generally, the crackpots are more energized when the other party is in power. Sadly, few are principled enough to put the feet to the fire of their own. At the last election, the likes of Dion Rabouin published, “Mitt Romney and the Capitalist Extremists Who Want to Destroy America,” while unions staged Romney’s America, which including voter suppression, rising student debt and a decline in working conditions. I’m pretty confident I can match you story-to-story/person-to-person on this one – if you want to try. Otherwise, we concur that both parties are equally guilty.

      Point 2. Republicans are more conservative than liberals. By definition, they change less. The platform hasn’t changed much since the party’s founding – from the “(alarm of the)reckless extravagance which pervades every department of the Federal Government” to “the right of each State to order and control its own domestic institutions according to its own judgment exclusively “to individual rights, immigration, and even “(t)hat the present Democratic Administration has far exceeded our worst apprehensions, in its measureless subserviency to the extractions of a sectional interest … and in its general and unvarying abuse of power entrusted to it by a confiding people.”

      Democrats, on the other hand, kept taking God and Israel out of the 2012 platform. Everything from energy policy to military actions constantly flip & flop from Platform to Platform. (The difference between 1980 and 2012 is amazing, for those who bother basing their opinion on historical, verifiable facts.)

      Heck, Democrats can’t even keep liking Obama 70%+ of Obama 2012 voters recently said they regretted it! This includes 39% of blacks, 100% of Hispanics, 55% Democrats, and 71% independents – and let’s not get started on abandoning the ACA (noting the Executive Order changes are exactly what the Republicans always wanted).

      Furthermore, it’s Democrats who seem obsessed w/God, guns, and abortions. They oppose the status quo on the first two and want to force everyone to participate in the latter. (I’d be happy to discuss this more thoroughly, w/documentation, if you want.)

      Finally – are you actually saying Obama steals all his ideas from Republicans?


  8. I assumed @minerva was your typical low information republican male, well I might have been wrong about our resident republican cheerleader, maybe our republican butt kissers is a low information female?? LMAO that’s even worse!! The GOP has repeatedly told women to STFU and just keep popping out babies! republican women are the poster child of the Stockholm syndrome victims for decades! My God! what does the GOP gotta do to show you they don’t like you. limbaugh calls women SLUTS and you clowns don’t say ONE word! but watch how I’ll be called a misogynist RIGHT now for merely stating the TRUTH! you cons are hopelessly ignorant! republican law makers can say Rape isn’t a big deal and your typical republican female just sits there DEAF, DUMB and BLIND! but let someone show how the GOP totally disrespects women and now YOU’RE the misogynist!!?? unbelievable lol hey @minerva, explain to everybody how that anti Rape gene works according to republican todd akins and mike huckabee. republican women are pitiful!! and don’t start that republican cry baby stuff! calling republican women pitiful isn’t being misogynist, A- all women aren’t republicans, therefore it’s not being misogynist! it’s being factual

  9. Democrats rob Peter to pay Paul. It is the whole idea behind a tiered tax system. It is also why they support minimum wage increases – which would result in $500K people to losing their jobs and raise the cost of goods for everyone, according to the CBO report – and ObamaCare, which relies on the young (lol) and also results in lost jobs or hours. http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/44995-MinimumWage.pdf

    • Embryonic stem cell research/abortion are other examples. (hESC is also an example of ignoring science to put forth an agenda – but both parties do a little of that.)

    • The Democrats support the minimum wage increase, but it never happens. That would cause millions of businesses to close. You can’t pay high wages selling dollar burgers. those presidential candidates lie and only mention those things. Sounds good, but in this economy, where there are the back buster, uneducated, workers that work in those minimum wage jobs, would not have those jobs anymore if the minimum wage went up. Nobody whether they are democrat or republican is going to fix or change anything. We should all do this, find out the world events at all times, but keep our asses home and develop the most military defense plans and programs where no other country can touch us. I mean become the most secure and advanced than any other country to where if anyone did come to harm us, it would be fatal, and that would keep our enemies on their own ground. we would always be on top of the extremists, that way we dont have to have problems with immigrants, and we have the intel for the extremists. We just need to keep our asses here and not fund anymore wars that really dont concern us. Going to the middle east and teaching them how to govern was years of waste and a waste of the american dollars. Plus it caused the extremists to radicate, and now look; ISIS. Lets spend our own money here putting up defense around us and daring any fools to try and mess with us. that is what our leaders should be planning. all that time we wasted over there solving nothing. our focus should be here. Now let me stop here because I could go on for hours. But, really neither party matters, because congress is going to write the checks, and there will be a few changes made when we elect our next President, but those changes I fear will be to no good effect. We need to give ourselves a nuclear program makeover, one that no other country can pardon me, FUCK WITH.

  10. That last rant was embarrassing! doesn’t it bother you in the slightest that your regurgitation of republican talking is fruitless, @minerva, we’ve danced this dance for over 9 months and you’ve learned nothing, now heres something important the GOP has lost two presidential elections by over 13 MILLION votes they don’t have the senate and 2014 they’ll probably lose the house. the idiotic nonsense you post here is embarrassing! now according to you democrats hate Obama, lmao republicans by in large suffer from a host of mental disorders, when reality exposes your thinking you create your own reality! to expose you as a fool is easy! The GOP’s still attacking Obama, and he’s not even running again! what kind of logic is that? he already kicked the GOP’s AS$ twice!, what else is there to prove? bottom line, republicans can take their cry baby lily white butts to the internet and post whatever reality they choose to fantasize about! because the republican party is a neo confederate party that is using corporate american dollars to keep caucasian republican males happy, theres a reason why the GOP’s 90% caucasian, well you enjoy your ted nugent, sarah pain john birch society, the civilized world is laughing at you, @minerva, you keep posting your steven forbes crap and the democrats will continue to keep kicking your AS$ES, it doesn’t make a damn difference what Great White savior you create every other week, your not really fighting the democratic party, your fighting progress! the republican party even with corporate dollars and even with fake supposedly christians and even with your rallying cries from your KKK wing, your dying! if you thought Obama, AS$ raped you fools wait till 2016 and beyond! you clowns can’t even field a likeable candidate!! even many republicans hated rommey!! and what did the British media call rommey? MITT THE TWIT lol RIP GOP

  11. I’ve stated here that the GOP is dying! just look at the damn signs, bush jr spends billions on invading Iraq with BULL$HIT propaganda lies about WMDS, France and many other UN members didn’t buy that $HIT!! so of course here come FUX NEWS to the GOP’s rescue! punk A$S bill o’reilly hops his pasty grill up there and starts ranting about how the French are cowards and how we should boycott “FRENCH FRIES”!! LMFAO really ??? seriously??!! FUX NEWS is truly for uneducated idiots!! first off ANYONE with ANY basic american history knows if it wasn’t for the French and German missionaries fighting with George Washington THERE WOULDN’T HAVE EVER BEEN A USA!!! republicans typically are so incredibly ignorant! BTW @mini, tell everybody where the WMDS are???? it’s been over 10 yrs!! where are they?? lol but of course FAT BA$TARD limbaugh says the WMDS were moved to Iran!! REALLY??? SERIOUSLY??!!! A- how the FU@K would he know?!! B- ANYONE with ANY FU@KING common knowledge knows Iraq and Iran aren’t exactly bossom buddies! I guess FAT BOY forgot how Iraq was using mustard gas bombs lobbed at Iran!!

  12. The GOP dying? hell yeah it is!! every since Obama has been president the GOP went from being a covert racist pack of RATS to a overt pack a DOGS, sarah the white guys wet dream palin is making a career out of being a john birch society puppet! This hopeless idiot who can’t even tell you ONE magazine or book she’s read or who doesn’t even know the history of Paul Revere’s midnight right or that Africa is a continent, not a country! or how when she’s vice president how she’s going to get her hands in congress!! LMFAO really sarah? this A$SHOLE has the intelligence of a fruit fly! then you GOPers got teddy boy, good ole nugent! OH, but wait, tell us @mini, how honorably he served in Nam?! tell us @mini, how he avoided the draft, can you say $HIT all running down my legs?? or tell us about his passion for 12 year old little girls, I can’t hear you conservative base, speak up! your so called RELIGOUS RIGHT cracks me up!! so godly, so righteous, so lily white holy, but you embrace a cowardly draft dodging, PEDOPHILE, racist, you clowns went ape $HIT over Clinton getting a BJ but ole teddy is your poster boy LOL these are just a couple of reasons why your GOP is DYING! your economics ponzi schemes that take from the poor and give to the rich, from your racist wings, to your homophobic wings, to your anti science wings, to your anti WOMAN wings, aren’t going to survive! as I said earlier, your not fighting the democrats, your fighting progress!! now get the hell out the way!!

  13. @Billodot, thank you!! once again you’ve identified the the situation and you see it clearly, please don’t get me wrong, my hyerbolic attitude isn’t the way I conduct myself in REAL life, it’s the internet! Now saying that, EVERYTHING I post is from my heart! but I wouldn’t be so aggressive in person, not because I’m frightened ! I’m 6’2” and around 243 lbs and can handle myself VERY WELL. But republicans have foolishly portrayed LIBERALS as WEAK- TREE HUGGING- WIMPS thus they’re attitude towards liberals are so uncivilized and obnoxious!! so I just treat them with the verbal hostility they love to display to ANYONE that challenges they’re WHITE NATIONALIST PARTY, the GOP. once again @Billodot, , you’re my brotha from another mother!! KEEP FIGHTING THE EVIL GOP!!

  14. BTW, my republican friends, your WHITE NATIONALIST PARTY once again shows how utterly useless it is, Obama got the ACA going and as I predicted a year ago, it’s a HUGE success!! so since the GOP tried unsuccessfully to block it 56 TIMES!! they’ve finally given up, especially since so many REPUBLICANS signed up for it LMFAO. Now the GOP’s latest DUMB TRICK is to say benghazi every 5 secs!! you republicans are hopeless!! benghazi happened 2 yrs ago, it’s been investigated over 4 times!! nice try, changing the subject with a issue that already been settled!! but at least the GOP fleeces you clowns for donations for your benghazi circus show! Now lets talk about embassy attacks, shall we?? 18 months into saint reagan presidency the Beirut embassy was terrorized and 63 people were killed, and again in 1983 270 marines were killed and 100 others died in a terrorist attack! and don’t get me starting talking about your BOY bush jr’s watch!! I’m curious? where were all you bleeding heart republicans during those embassy attacks? WELL?!! SPEAK UP!! you republican types are embarrassing IGNORANT! you make archie bunker look like Steven Hawking!

  15. The GOP’s biggest groupie @minerva crawls out of their hold to get all misty because a lying republican jumps on the internet FAKING like their a democrat!! Jesus Christ, @minerva are you really dense enough to believe that lame juvenile game?? NO, don’t answer that! we already know LMAO. Next you’ll be believing that Jews are apologizing to NAZI’s for the Halocaust, RIGHT?? you RIGHTIES are hilarious! your so consumed with being WHITE NATIONALIST that you don’t have critical thinking skills, but then thats exactly how the GOP wants you, FEARFUL- HATEFUL- IGNORANT and caucasian. ”shaking my head in disgust” I kinda hope your kock brother puppet, paul ryan gets his HATEFUL budget accepted, so YOUR social security gets cut off, then maybe that will keep YOU off the internet!! tell you girlfriend @threepointdud, nice try, for a moron.

  16. First off, ANY democrat who’s reads the utter FILTH and racist garbage coming from conservative websites, would NEVER EVER apologise to a republican that has said the utter nonsense FUX NEWS propaganda @minerva loves spitting out!! SEE @minerva your girlfriend should have just aired their disapproval of MY style of bashing republicans over the head, maybe that would have FOOLED someone but your girlfriend @threepointdud, BLEW it by by french kiss you, LMAO that really exposed the game!! damn, you RIGHTIES really just aren’t very bright HUH?? you can’t even pull of SIMPLE scams!! LOL just like NIXON and watergate!! just like bush jr and Iraq, ALWAYS trying to pull the hustle but too DUMB to pull it off successfully LMFAO

  17. Ok minie, here is a great example… There is a candidate in Oregon for Senate running against Jeff Merkeley’s seat. And since Merkeley is gaining power and tenure in the senate they would LOVE to unseat him. She has never run for any other public position, including treasurer for the local youth soccer club, and is now running for one of the most prestigious positions in America other than President… Senator.
    Hmmmmm… woman? check… doctor? check…. far right? check….. but I digress…She is a pediatric neurosurgeon and is heavily backed by superpacks out of state, running commercials more than Romney did in the last push for the presidency. She is running against the ACA and was doing great……………………….wait for it……………………….

    UNTIL it came out that she was stalking and harrassing her ex husband until he filed a restraining order ( which he later rescinded, to be fair) but wait there is more!!! Her ex was politically active, donating large sums of money to the man running for the SAME Senate seat.
    ….hmmmmm Stalker, obsessive, harrasser,….. did she run for that seat just to spite her ex?——- nooooooo I am sure that she is just civic minded and since the ACA site in Oregon failed so miserably she probably just wanted to save the good citizens of Oregon from the EVIL Obamacare,right?

    Don’t kid yourself, the financiers and new ‘kings’ of the GOP, the nefarious Koch Brothers and their BILLIONS are behind this; they saw a unique opportunity to possibly turn a blue state red, and found the perfect candidate… an inexperienced attractive woman citizen/doctor! but alas, as in the never ending saga of the infamous Sarah Palin, they conveniently forgot to vet her completely.

    The Koch Brothers, and their billionaire buddies are mis-informed, the American People are not as stupid as they think— Yes, some can have their inner bigotries tickled and coerced, but most of us are good, conscientious citizens and will NEVER fall prey to the obvious phony populistic attempts of the elite’s stooping to the level of the everyman.
    Minnie, the Karl Rovians among us try to call the Dems “sheeple”, when it is really the non-rich, God, Guns, and Anti Gay crowd that is blindly arguing against their own self interest in the name of their so called- “constitutional purism”. The sad thing is that they wont buy in to the WHOLE document, only the parts they like. The govenment IS the constitution, and was written to protect the people from ideologies like the one you so blindly buy into.
    Poor, poor lemmings…..

  18. @minerva, is crying foul because I gave him/ her?? some tough love!! POOR BABY!! listen heres the reality @minerva THE LIBERTIAN!, you white nationalist are delusional, when someone tries to present a conversation with you RIGHTIES, you can bet within 5 mins they’ll start the name calling!! you republican types always claim to be christian but two secs later you’ll CURSE everybody out! You republicans typically are the nastiest, ill mannered, hateful people on Earth! I’ve been on plenty of conservative sites, and you can’t go two sentences before someones calling Obama “ODUMBER” or nigger!! or muslim terrorist spy!! you know I’m telling the TRUTH!! you’ve seen it!! You republicans always play the victim! crying about people being NASTY to you but you can’t see how truly UGLY and rule republicans are! republicans call liberals, weak little bitches, stupid tree huggers, bleeding heart assholes ETC!! do you ever that notice how you talk about hillary clinton??!! Does anyone remember at a televised town hall, when a republican female on LIVE TV called hillary a BITCH

  19. You republicans have successfully created the ultimate double standard, bill o’reilly can call his guess pinheads, stupid, ignorant, clowns and you republicans find NO fault in that! LMAO. limbaugh can tell black people that SLAVERY WASN’T a big deal! and you republicans find NO fault with that either!! limbaugh calls women SLUTS and NO republican pushed back!! But liberal Ed Schultz FOOLISHLY called bachmann a SLUT and he gets suspended and publicly apologises!, which he should have! has limbaugh apologised?? was he suspended? NO! whenever a dem or liberal says something against the GOP, they either get FIRED or they have to walk the hall of shame apologising to EVERYBODY! great double standard! BTW you republicans aren’t just rude and UGLY! your violent!! democratic offices from Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona to upper state N.Y. have been vandalize by your ilk! conservative blogger mike vanderboegh urged people to vandalize democratic offices but don’t touch congressional democratic offices because thats federal property!! Bottomline, I’m kinda tired of republicans playing the wounded, whining cry baby victim, and @minerva actually had the gall to say liberals have a thin skin! LOL @minerva, you and your FAKE democrat buddy are the only ones CRYING. you thin skin libertarian LMAO. you republicans are ALL about PROJECTION. take responsibility for your actions and when people get tired of taking your insults and give YOU a dose of your own medicine, don’t start crying and playing the wounded victim.

  20. @Billodot, good stuff! but heres the problem, most republicans don’t even know who the koch brothers are!! and they don’t want to know! and for the few republicans who’ve heard of the koch brothers, they go into they’re RIGHT WING playbook and start babbling about George soros!! Like Soros has a fraction of the wealth the koch brothers have!! Theres a movie coming out by Greenwald about the evil koch brothers and theres a NEW book coming out! But republicans aren’t interested!! to them it’s ALL about winning! it’s ALL about trying to hold on to they’re WHITE PRIVILEGE!! oh and they’re phoney so called christian role playing nonsense!!

  21. I am a republican period but I also am not against gay marriage or legalization of cannabis we should focus on finical responsibility I am a business owner I have made good money I ALSO WORK ABOUT 65 to max OF 90 HOURS WEEK in my lifetime I give freely to the salvation army (on my own free will) BUT where I draw the line is I will not be told that have have to take care of other people that will not work and I am sorry to say that seems to be quite a few people.
    In my lifetime I have came across many many people that come up with every excuse in the world not to work or pay me $20 hour to perform unskilled work this is the USA we the people have the right to make money and the right to earn lots of money if you work hard to do so nobody is stopping anybody everyone on this post can make good money RIGHT just think about it . Looking at the first part of these post looks as if some of you have made total fools of yourselves using foul language basically trailer trash talk with no facts or sold ideas just loud street talk sorry to inform you guys the business world does not care about you trash talk at all. With that said I give a high five to all the Democrats that dismissed this kind of behavior I would love to debate with you and help solve real world problems I have voted both parties many times when I feel it is needed and yes we do have some bad Republicans too. Bottom line is work ethics what can you do to help your country not what your country can do to help you work on your problems do not expect other people to bail you out. As far as charity and welfare is concerned that should be handled at the local level not the federal level people in Washington do not know what the heck is going on in small town Indiana ?? our towns need to manage themselves not be told what to do by big brother again I ask each and every one of you to think. I do not have a college education and I grew up very poor I started my own technology business by lots of reading and hard work and perfection my skills its not hard just takes work

    • Are your sure you’re a republican??

    • you have to be more specific about who you mean about not supporting people that do not work. If you pay taxes buddy let me tell you, that your money will go to welfare and SSI persons, and thats just how it is and should be. Look at how this society took a race and denied them jobs, and don’t deny it, because black people couldn’t even sit on a white mans bus, or go to school where white people did, and you want to tell me they can work? You should be ashamed of yourself for saying what you said. You’re so worried about your pissy money helping someone out who You forced out of society, and don’t say you didn’t have anything to do with it, because you sat silent as this happens to these people. Don’t speak now, we are all responsible for how black people are denied jobs and forced to live in segregated projects like outcasts. We put all those people together forced to live in poverty, and expect them not to act in crime in order to survive? Come on Mr. You really pissed me off. You think they are just lazy? Is that what you think is going on here? Boy do you need a spiritual makeover. God is real, and just as you are a successful business man, it can all be gone and you could find your ass seeking benefits. You really need to stop and take a look at YOUR part in how you can make this country better, just by your own actions. Its very selfish of you to say such a thing, that you aren’t going to support people that won’ work. Well, there are children that need money because their mother is poor but works and doesn’t make crap cuz maybe she doesn’t have an education, or maybe the father died or left, but she is who your referring to, or persons with mental disabilities who cannot work, or physical disabilities, these are those you don’t want your precious money going to. Well, I wish you all your money to yourself your asshole, may it leave you the same way it came to you, or maybe you will become sick and can’t guard it anymore, and you lose it all. Your not successful, because successful people give it away in order to keep it. So much to learn, you better hurry. Oh and you should try a little Jesus, too.

      • I mean people like you piss me off. It’s just not how you look at it. Your a grench buddy. I mean how are you going to control what your tax dollars are spent on. What a fuckin joke of a man. I bet your the asshole that walks past a homeless man who is obviously hungry, with ease, and without it bothering you, and thinking, he should get a job, or he just wants alcohol. Well I’m poor, and when I see someone homeless and hungry, you know what I do? I give them money, because I feel like I am helping someone besides myselfish self.

  22. Guess Knight was wrong.

  23. I Normally Considers my self to be Demarcate and voted at this years Election NOV 4th 2014 for all Democrats and Frankly upset it a Republican who won. Next Time Voting comes around I’m switching to become Republican because I do believe in Health care and well fare but I’m tired of people not helping themselves I’m sick of being sick and tired and I’m tired of needing Food stamps . People in My city of Baltimore MD all ways Talk but cant walk the Talk they Beg and sit on their asses and collect Government checks and free food While I Go to school and Have an Internship all while being Homeless with no benefits . DSS Had the nerve to tell me because I Graduated Highs cool and Receive Two College Scholarship of Merit . I cant receive Help with food. I swear I’m not making this UP mean while Homeless people like me who (receive Help and Benefits) Just sit and hold up help me signs . I ask people to go vote they all watching tv and sitting on their ass not caring about making a difference And Now wonder why the people who would help them ” Continue ” To sit down and sleep eat and receive Money for just p being Poor. I’m tired of This shit I want a Business I want to work and for now on I want to Focus on thing that encourages Hard work and Individual work like Republicans .cause Now I see L0w income people are own their own like the reality of the world is …..we must fend for ourselves and not rely Government to help.

    • @shanaqua, LMFAO you’re a democrat that’s switching to the republican party?? you’re a JOKE! and a LIAR! you WERE a democrat? that’s HILARIOUS! YOU can’t even SPELL democrat correctly, democrat isn’t spelled DEMOCRATE, you RIGHTIES are so full of $HIT

      • I like How you did not comprehend my statement . I said ” I Normally consider myself to be Democrat ” Not That I truly was or was Not .I dont get in Politics I focus on what is happen not what “They ” are saying they will do on both sides . ,I would Vote for The Democrats or republic if the person is worthy to have my misspelling uneducated Vote. again that’s the Uneducated America who has a poll system that dont check your comprehending skills of us Voters . Same as you have the right to vote So do I regardless of my education or who I choose to vote or if I choose to switch . It my right and I will exercise in such . Good day sir.

        • @shaniqua, NO, YOU misunderstood my point, I couldn’t care less who you vote for, my ONLY point is, if your choosing to voice your opinion on the INTERNET and especially if YOU’RE going to express your opinion on the INTERNET on a negative note, at least spell the criticism CORRECTLY. you have a nice day also @shaniqua,

  24. While we all express our strong critical opinions and push our agendas, the very fiber of our nation continues to decline (morally, spiritually, economically, etc.). History proves time again, that pride and arrogance goes before a fall, resulting in God’s judgement; but when God’s people repent and humble themselves and seek His face, then God will hear our prayers, and forgive our sins, and heal our land. When we see our land under siege and our economy crash (which is scheduled to occur this year), remember… God never despises a humbled and repented heart.

  25. ALL of you sound idiots…get back to the basics!

    • That’s rude and disrespectful to these people. They may sound like idiots, but do you have to say it?

      Can’t anyone be nice around here?

  26. The MIGHTY GLORIOUS GOP is having it’s lolly pop debate tonight, and because they whined and cried that CNBC didn’t treated them nice!!!! LMFAO! hello!! CNBC is as pro GOP as it gets!! HELLO for you cry baby republicans, GOOGLE ”RICK SANTELLI”, lol yeah! you got it! can you say TEA PARTY? LMFAO the GOP is DYING! face it! the ”WE THE WHITE PEOPLE” party is going bye bye but the democratic party is going bye bye too!! since the mid 1970’s the democratic party has turned in a corporate PRO party, PROOF? president Obama screwed america with this TTP $HIT! and before you RIGHTIES start bitching! guess what party VOTED with Obama on the TTP?? yep, YOUR beloved GOP!!!

  27. Most people who posted in here sound like they believe guns kill people. Guess what; my gun has never got up when I wasn’t home and killed anyone. You make yourself fat not the spoon or fork. If you don’t get this metaphor then don’t respond. Just to let you know I don’t mean guns. Ponder that one lol.

    • Who was talking about guns?????? listen if having a gun in every room of your house makes you feel safer, then I pitty you! But then again, the GOP works 24/4 scaring low information caucasians into being AFRAID of EVERYTHING! LMFAO the NRA must be laughing their ASSES off, the say boo and you fork over another few hundred dollars and buy another GUN!! and you call brown people DUMB! lol I remember back in the good ole days, when middle age WHITE males started feeling insecure, they’d buy a new red sports car and start trying to pickup girls at the local high school. lol

      • Well, Knight, First I would like to point out that you are trying to say that the GOP is trying to ‘scare’ low information Caucasians. However, you will find that there are many quite intelligent members who do not spend their lives on a website bashing everyone who does not agree with you. Also, I want to say that you act like Republicans are not intelligent, yet in 2016, you are still calling African-Americans “brown people”. Also, guns do NOT kill people, people use guns to kill people. Finally, I want to explain to you as a GOP member, someone you call a “low information Caucasian”, that their is a thing called spelling, and if you want to be taken seriously, you need to learn it.

        pity, not pitty.
        they say boo, not ‘the say boo’
        pick up, not pickup (a pickup is an automobile)
        24/7, not 24/4 (24 hours a day 4 days a week?)

        • Typical LILY WHITE republican, you’re moaning about “SPELL CHECK” really?? you should be worried about your damn LILY WHITE GOP. trump, the racist, fascist, thr low information idiot has totally blown away the GOP!! LMFAO trump exposed your party!! trump isn’t a conservative!! LOL but he knew exactly how to win the GOP nomination! Forget the typical dog whistle racism stunts your beloved GOP has been using since nixon and the southern strategy! No trump isn’t about that! And that’s why all the WHITE racist groups like STORMFRONT- WHITE NATIONALIST PARTY- former grand wizard DAVID DUKE all endorse trump! So @jerry, while you’re bitching and moaning about GRAMMAR, your beloved GOP is ripping itself apart!! LMFAO even willard romney is attacking trump! You RIGHTIES are hilarious, you hate facts! you refuse to study HISTORY! you refuse to study american politics! and then you start crying the blues when anyone destroys your plastic idols!! LOL BTW your next president will either be a woman “HILLARY” or it will be a JEW “BERNIE SANDERS” good lord @jerry, in racist ole america, the GOP has been beaten by a black man, a black man named OBAMA!!! now it’s either a woman or a JEW!! WOW!! your party really sucks!! now what were you saying about GRAMMAR, professor?

        • @jerry, LOL OMG, you’re a joke! so your strategy to debate people is, looking for TYPO’s?? really?? thank you for educating me! I didn’t knew it was 24/7, I thought it was 24/4!! THANK YOU @jerry, I forgot to put a “Y” on “THEY” and that’s your big come back???? LMFAO @jerry, I “PITY” you, not “PITTY” you’re a master debater there @jerry.

  28. This article’s author is uneducated. First Republicans constantly run a larger Government than Democrats. Clinton was the first president to reduce government size. Republicans have constantly increased the National Debt while Democrats with the exception of Carter have decreased the National Debt. To the man in the movie your concepts are all wrong. Social Programs are not the downfall of the economy, they are the legs of the economy holding it up. Proven by UTAH Housing first give people dignity and support and they tend to become self sufficient and save the government money. And further the lot of what you have said was wrong. It is 2016 The US Economy has recovered from the screw job bush did to us.

  29. oops wrong blog

  30. It makes me laugh, and quiver with excitement that people such as “Minerva”, and “knight4444”, like to pick fights with one another. You are on a public site open for anyone, mind you, and you decide to use your uneducated brains to come up with these poor excuses of comebacks. Please, if you don’t want to be made fun of; be civilized people and use your brains. Also refrain from using text-talk, and unnecessary capitalization or else you all look and sound like idiots. You may all be 20+ and you are being out worded and dissed by a sixteen year old girl. Info about my self: I am a full time college student at the age of 16 and I am well into my sophomore year of college. By the looks of your writing you only made it passed high school and didn’t continue from there.

    • @popcorn, give it a rest, you’re 16 yrs old STFU, you’re confusing formal education with experience and maturity, you have neither! Listen junior, when you grow up and move out your mommy basement and start feeding yourself and actually paying your own bills! then talk!

  31. Let me get this right, a person jumps on a political website and proceeds to call people immature and juvenile, did anyone notice that persons screen name?? it was “DEEZ NUTTS” now that mature. Look in the mirror “DEEZ NUTTS” and take your own advice. BTW let me guess, you’re a caucasian male who leans conservative, am I right? your boy, trump must be proud of you.

  32. i agree with knight4444, republicans are so god dam fucking stupid and racist and they need a good ass beating! flat tax rate and pro life….please give me a break, the republicans are snobs and arogant to begin with… they need to change their attitude and stop being dumb ass red neck idiots!!! republicans are so self centered and non humanitarian people…what a shame.

    • @Matt, you’re 100% correct, theres a reason why the GOP is 89% WHITE!! because since nixon they’ve been openly courting the WHITE racist and those dixiecrats of the SOUTH! that’s exactly why donald j trump kicked the SH^T out of the other republican candidates!!! he’s just says what most LILY WHITE racist hesitate to say out loud!! theres a reason why david duke and other WHITE supremacy groups openly support trump!! if the GOP really wasn’t a racist party, WHY is he their leaders????? WHY ?!! trump is your typical republican, a loud mouth, poorly educated, racist, bigot, misogynist, PIG!! oh but I forgot, he’s got the BEST words!! WTF?? lol what a dumbass FOOL!! just like his redneck poorly educated supporters.

  33. from 1963 through 2016, most of the presidents were republican and it’s time for a change! instead of putting america in debt and having people screwed out of a job and back stabbing america…we need a good president who is honost, caring and one who looks out for other people!!!

  34. As for me, A white boy not brought up to be racist, republican by virtue of my parents being Republican, I think that both Republicans and Democrats are nothing but gangs. No different than the Crips and the bloods. Some people vote strictly for their party or gang, because they’re afraid of the repercussions. My personal values of working for what I get are mine. Any people that feel the government owes them anything other than what they have put in, in my opinion, are being freeloaders. We are all responsible for our own lives and and what happens to us within our life. We can only vote for the person that best represents our own values and goals. As an American, I am embarrassed that it is come down to what gang you’re in. This 2016 election is proof that it’s come down to the leaders of the gangs. With neither one of the candidates representing our individual American interests as people that live here and work here. Just their own agendas, which largely benefit their own personal gains and not representative of the people of the United States at large.

  35. Excuse me @Knight4444,

    I am a proud American and am utterly confused why you are talking bad about something that you don’t even understand. You repeatedly say that Trump/Republicans are racist and sexist, yet most of the comments I have seen from you include racist and sexist remarks. I would like you to know that the Civil War was NOT North against South. It was Republicans against Democrats. The Republicans were “North” and Democrats “South.” Abraham Lincoln was the leader of the North, right? He was also Republican and his opponent was a Democrat. When Abraham Lincoln won the office, he disbanded slavery and yet you say that the Republicans are the racist ones? He freed thousands of slaves and won them the rights they deserve. What did Democrats do? They fought hard against giving African Americans the rights they deserve.
    And I’ll have you know that Hillary Clinton defended a young 12-year-old girl’s rapist, pardoning him of the sentence that he deserved by claiming the young victim was “overreacting”. The girl finally spoke out a couple of years ago, and if you look it up on google you’ll find a bunch of primary and secondary sources proving that this is true. While Trump may say some things that aren’t necessarily appropriate, have you taken a look at what Bill Clinton has actually done? I’m not the biggest fan of Trump, but he’s better than Hillary because if she gets elected, the world will literally come to an end. Why? Because she has been lying and defying the law for the longest time now. What happened to the emails? She was once against Gay and Lesbian rights, but now she’s all for it. But wait! She said her views have never changed. What happened there? I’m not saying that people can’t change, but when they say that they haven’t changed and yet it seems like they have, I get confused at their values.

    I hope you take this into consideration and if you need any more information about Democrats, I would be happy to give it to you.
