Ten Differences between Republicans vs. Democrats

February 8, 2009

10) Republicans believe that Courts should interpret laws not fix the laws which Congress so foolishly passes. Democrats want the courts to take an activist role in the everyday lives and affairs of individuals and businesses.

9) Republicans believe that we should live in a color blind society where every individual is judged on the content of his character and the merits of his actions. On the other hand, Democrats believe that it’s ok to discriminate based on race as long as it primarily benefits minority groups.

8) Republicans are capitalists and believe that entrepreneurs who amass  wealth through their own efforts are good for the country and shouldn’t be punished for being successful. Democrats are socialists who view successful business owners as people who cheated the system somehow or got lucky. That’s why they don’t respect high achievers and see them as little more than piggy banks for their programs.

7) Republicans think every day is Independence Day, the 4th of July. Democrats believe every day is April 15th Tax Day. Republicans know a government who says they can provide you with every thing can also take away everything. Democrats despise freedom, liberty and freedom and prefer ‘programs’ over personal effort.

6) Republicans believe in confronting and defeating enemies of the United States before they can harm American citizens. Democrats believe in using law enforcement measures to deal with terrorism, which means that they feel we should allow terrorists to train, plan, and actually attempt to kill Americans before we try to arrest them — as if you can just send the police around to pick up a terrorist mastermind hiding in Iran or the wilds of Pakistan.

5)  Republicans believe it’s vitally important to the future of the country to reduce the size of government, keep taxes low and simple, balance the budget, and get this country out of debt. Democrats believe in big government, high taxes, and they have never met a new spending program they didn’t like, whether we will have to go into debt to pay for it or not.

4) Republicans believe that government, by its very nature, tends to be inefficient, incompetent, wasteful, and power hungry. That’s why we believe that the government that governs least, governs best. Democrats think that the solution to every problem is another government program. Even when those new programs create new problems, often worse than the ones that were being fixed in the first place, the solution is always….you guessed it, another government program.

3) Republicans  are patriotic, believe that America is a great nation, and are primarily interested in looking out for the good of the country. That’s why we believe in “American exceptionalism” and “America first.” Democrats are internationalists who are more concerned about what Europeans think of us and staying in the good graces of the corrupt bureaucrats who control the UN than looking out for the best interests of this nation.

2) Republicans, most of them anyway, believe in God and think that the Constitution has been twisted by liberal judges to illegitimately try to purge Christianity from the public square. We also believe, most of us anyway, that this country has been successful in large part because it is a good, Christian nation and if our country ever turns away from the Lord, it will cease to prosper. Democrats, most of them anyway, are hostile to Christianity. That’s why, whether you’re talking about a school play at Christmas time, a judge putting the Ten Commandments on the wall of his court, or a store employee saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays,” Democrats are dedicated to driving reminders of Christianity from polite society.

1) Republicans believe in pursuing policies because they’re pragmatic and because they work. Democrats believe in pursuing policies because they’re “nice” and make them feel good. Whether the policies they’re advocating actually work or not is of secondary importance to them.
