Sorry about the poor quality, but the point is that I found these things out about our government and so can you. Go out and educate yourself, especially those self-loathing individuals who vote for Republicans even when they admit that they are going to screw everyone over, except the wealthy. Again, no love loss with democrats either, but at least they lie and tell us that they are working on the behalf of the people. If you like my posts, go to my blog to see better quality videos where I provide My Take on what politicians says and what I think they mean:

Read the Rules

From what I've read and been told, both of the top American political parties are on the right of the political spectrum.

Very true.

Democrats must hate the fact that they have to actually pretend to work for the people and then make excuses to explain why they are just as bad as Republicans.

That kind of extra hassle leaves less time to entertain lobbyists and potential job offers; most politicians know a few years of political service is just a short-cut into a high paying position in private industry...

Republicans have it way easier, they just point fingers at minority groups and abortion clinics... and presto, they can do whatever the hell they want without any political consequences.

Agreed, but why do so many vote for the openly hateful Republicans. Has someone done a study?

[-] 1 points by alexrai (851) 2 years ago

I think its a combination of things but they are very good at creating fear and then promising macho bullshit that will protect people from whatever they are pushing.

People don't make rational choices when they are afraid, but they are very motivated to get off their ass and vote for someone to protect them from the frightening things.

Democrats sell hope, but deliver more or less the same thing as republicans. But its a great way for a one party system to ensure that it always gets 95% of the vote.

I am a Republcan and I am not afraid. I vote for them because for the most part they believe in limited government and freedom. Democrats are good people as well but believe that the government should step in and attempt to dictate outcomes. I don't think they should as it is very unfair and does nothing but put people in groups.

Can't tar everyone with the same brush, but I still think fear is a key component of the platform... the government will steal your money and take your liberty if you don't vote for us. Terrorists will get you if you vote for the other guy. Immigrants financed by narco-terrorists are stealing your jobs, vote for us. People are killing children, children are smoking pot... and pot leads to porno... and so we need to ban everything.

I'm sure some people vote for Republicans based on traditional republican principles, but I would be willing to bet many of the masses are acting to avoid drummed up fear.

Either way I think you could vote in a Marionette for all the good it will do; its the same people pulling the strings. Both parties support bloated government, and both parties appear intent on removing as many freedoms as possible.

Well at least Republicans tell you what they would do, Democrats tell you lies and do otherwise.

[-] 1 points by fabianmockian (225) 2 years ago

You keep going with that logic my soon to be broke like the rest of us friend

[-] 1 points by TheStop (53) 2 years ago

I made my life. I was poor, but instead of blaming the rich i blamed myself and buy built a business.

[-] 1 points by fabianmockian (225) 2 years ago

That's good for you, but with all of the cuts that Republicans want to make, including downsizing the Post Office and other government agencies when the private sector is also downsizing and holding unemployment benefits hostage, I wonder how your business might be impacted by the lack of a consumer base.

[-] 1 points by TheStop (53) 2 years ago

The Post Office has little effect on my business. Consumers will still come as long as they have money to spend.

[-] 1 points by fabianmockian (225) 2 years ago

Big picture my friend. You're missing it.

i, myself, do not trust honey badgers

That's pretty much the difference between the parties. Republicans will tell you straight out what they are trying to do (not "accomplish", because that implies a positive result), while the Democrats pretend to support popular causes then undermine them or vote against them.
