  • They don't exist. Ours is a one-party system divided into two factions, in order to create for us lemmings the delusion we are actually governing ourselves.

  • We are more educated (statistically, srs)
    We reduce the debt (come at me non-pol sci degree fgits)
    We resist war (blood n debt)

  • Absolutely nothing. #Trump2016

  • If you're not voting GOP might as well vote Bernie. I may disagree with his political views but he's a genuine person that isn't funded by corporations.

  • Politicians don't tend to get much love once they're in office. It really doesn't matter what party they are affiliated with. Once they're in the door, there seems ot be a cloud of regret looming around them.

  • It's better to have two political parties than one (yes some countries have ONLY one), but I wish we had at least four with equal members, and high funding.

    That seems to be what would best represent America's interests but people are resisting and instead trying to push 3rd party characteristics into the old existing 2 even though that can never work.

    Bring back the Whig party I say

  • You know I'm trying to give up caring about politics and then I see a question like this that just pisses me off and makes me want to respond... lol.

    I'll tell you a bunch of good things about democrats:

    They are the party in charge of such successful places as Baltimore, Camden (NJ), Detroit, and many other lovely cities. Whats more interesting is that for these cities the democrats have been ruling them for years, and it really shows in the quality of the cities. Whats great about these cities is that the population is being controlled pretty effectively because the murder rates are so high.

    Then of course the democrats are the people that drafted the idea of "raise taxes, raise spending, ignore the debt" which is an absolutely brilliant way to deal with the 18 trillion dollar debt, I mean if we just ignore our problems they will go away right? This idea is courtesy of the democrats.

    You know that crappy little country in East Asia in between China and South Korea, the one called North Korea? Well they have nuclear weapons now, and we can thank the democrats for that. Bill Clinton's negotiations in the 90s (that are eerily similar to the negotiations with Iran going on right now), were so successful that North Korea now has nukes, isn't that just fantastic? The world needs more countries with Nukes, I'm just glad the democrats let North Korea have them.

    And dont even get me started on race relations, the democrats are far ahead of their time in that regard. I mean did you see the democrats running for president this election cycle? They had an African American brain surgeon, several Hispanics, a successful businessman, a woman who was the former CEO of a company... oh wait that was the republicans... sorry I forgot how racist those republicans are, the democrats had 4 old white men and Hillary running for office, isn't that just fantastic how diverse they were? And thankfully, now that we have a black president in office, race relations are a thousand times better then they were in 2008, the democrats haven't been fueling the race fire at all, they have the solution and its just great.

    I could go on but I'm running out of room so I'll call it quits, as you can see the democrats are clearly always right and never wrong, and clearly the best political party out there, after all they are doing for America they deserve every single vote...
