The next person who says to me "Both parties are the same" I just might lose it. I am an independent, moderately conservative, free-thinking American and I can see the differences between the two.
The Democrats believe in freedom of religion, and that any American’s fundamental rights must be protected by the government and it may not place unfair restrictions on them. They believe every American has the right to find happiness in their own way, so long as they do not infringe upon rights of others. They are middle-of-the-road, pro-business, pro-woman and just mildly pro-environment. They are susceptible of being nudged into spineless positions when under pressure to the detriment of their constituents.
The Republicans as a group are irrational. First they let the radical evangelists and then the tea-baggers take over much of the party. They employ racism and homophobia to a terrifying degree. They are extreme, pro-industry, pro-deregulatory and hostile to environment. Their actual policies don't stand up to any scrutiny. Their track record in office is dreadful and they will say or do anything to anybody to protect the rights of people with huge amounts of money. They take heavy stock in helping already rich people become obscenely rich.
Now, there are plenty of good, well intentioned Republicans and plenty of committed, idealistic Democrats. I'm friends with quite a few of both. But I'm telling you where the parties stand. I’m not sold on either party, and I only want people in elected office that have the welfare of the average American citizen in their hearts and minds.
There are clear differences between the two and there is a definite choice to be made on November 6th; overly-business-friendly pseudo-liberals or the pawns of wealthy men, guided by zealots who literally want to make us a Christian country by statute (un-Constitutional by the way) and would imprison women for being raped and refusing to carry the child.
So what's your choice?
