The Democratic Party or Republican?

Updated on May 10, 2015

Are Democrats Better than Republicans?

At some point we all ask ourselves honestly, what is the better party, Republican or democrat. This writer can even say that many people fall prey to the hype of the democratic party, portraying itself as the party that cares, only to be disillusioned by facts, while others simply cannot part from the liberal side out of fear of ridicule. The media is almost 100% owned and ruled by democrats, this is why one cannot just turn on the television and just see the news being reported. As long as that medium carries an interest, we will be bombarded by reporters who are not just reporting, but, swaying the way we think.

What does the democratic party stand for and what are the politicians trying to do? The party tries to get as much money from tax payers as possible so that they can have easy access to our money for their purposes.

What does the Republican party stand for? The big thing about Republican voters vs democrats, is that Republicans say that we should keep our own money and keep the government under control. By that, don't let the government rob the people to make itself fat.

Obviously, the Republicans are better for people than the democrats, but, what the democrats do as a business had made them more successful. They prey on people's insecurity and lack of knowledge, and come up with fear mongering tactics to make the public think that Republicans are anti female, anti black, and basically, anti as many things as possible so that the majority of people will think that the party is out to get them. It is the only way to get people to willingly vote for high taxes on themselves and a crippled economy, which consistently happens when a democratic majority is in rule.

There are no politicians who are out to make women get paid less than men, think out it realistically. It has been illegal to pay a woman less than a man since the1960s, and there is no way that men are hung up on trying to go back to that. There would be nothing in it for them. That is how you discern if it is true or not. Politicians are under stress, the things that they are trying to do are not so ridiculous as to pass a bill that makes women get paid less. But, this is something that democrats have pumped into the minds of their public. They also try to sway people to think that Republicans are all about being white racists. They know that no one wants to be associated with being a white racist and by pinning this idea on the Republicans, the stand to gain a lot of votes from people who are highly emotional and willing to believe such extreme propaganda. But, by creating so many demons they don't really have to do anything good, in fact, they can be extremely bad and the public will not call them out on it, they just say, "at least we don't have Republicans in office." That, being the ultimate control, when they can raise taxes, tank the economy, and go back on all of their promises without having to answer for it.

The liberals are fine with this wealthy family, and their fine tailored clothes, mansions all over the country, and life of silver spoons.

What Was the Occupy Movement?

Downtown San Diego sat a woman in tears. Her business had just gone bust! Bad economy? No, even the economy was not to blame for this one.

It was the Occupy protesters. AKA- The Democrats with too much Kool Aid in their systems.

You know, that group of people who Nancy Pelosi praised with a " god bless them, they are spontaneous and independent", and predicted that because their message is "clear and focused" that they would be successful.

This distraught lady who I saw packing up her lunch cart, had her very livelihood shattered by the occupy protesters. She ran a coffee cart in the business district, and now that the protesters were harassing people who are working in that area, not to mention defecating in some of the public areas, business people are either staying in, or driving to restaurants, and she is out in the streets alone, with only the protesters who are not interested in helping her stay in business, in fact, they have shown their contempt for her drive and work ethic, ordering her "give us some free coffee, we are doing this for America.!"

When I asked some of the Occupy Protesters what their problem was, the first thing I heard was "money!" from one of the women who was holding a sign that read, "I am the 99%".

I asked the entire group why they hate money and one of the men who could see that I was not entirely impressed with the scene here made an attempt to appear less radical and more levelheaded when he said, "all the politicians are rich and have everything they want, and they can't relate to us, yet they are making our decisions ." I decided to throw them a curve, and said, "oh, I see, you mean that Obama is out of touch, and has never really lived, and worked in the world the way most of us have."

What I got was a blank stare, that quickly turned to changing the subject. One of the protesters started talking about "needing" free birth control, while another said "free health care for all." In short they are all talking about different things, displaying anger about just about everything. So much for Nancy Pelosi and her delusion of a clear plan. They seem more as though they have watched too much MSNBC and are angry because the shills on that "news" program were non stop showing contempt for wealth whenever they spoke of a Republican, while the over paid celebrities and Democrats were given a free pass.

I asked what they think should be done to solve all of the things they ate so much, and was bombarded with, "less taxes, higher taxes, free health care, free birth control", ect. The thing that really stood out about these people was that they were quite self righteous in that they considered themselves to be very concerned for the well being of "the people", yet they had no problem kicking this poor woman out of business, making her cry and have to worry for the future her family. Of course I made a point of mentioning this to about 10 of the protesters only to hear, "if a few people and their businesses are sacrificed, then so be it." Who is to dictate which people are the sacrifices?

So much for caring for the working class. I guess they care when it's convenient.

My assessment of this mob was that they love being in a crowd, and protesting. It gives them something to do, an excuse for their short comings, and the opportunity to be with like minded people.

It is generally believed that this movement was started by the extreme left, and runs deeper than just a bunch of lazy people who want the government to run their lives. To a great extent, I was seeing people who were brain washed to a degree. Because even the relatively young protesters in their 20's knew that they were supposed to be against Mitt Romney, and all Republicans, and be accepting of Obama, and that was the bottom line.

The Young Liberal Man

A particularly quiet and polite man began talking to me about their movement, and I ended up saying something about Mitt Romney. I saw his face, he did not want to be aggressive, but he was obviously against Romney. So this was my chance to make him explain himself. After I said what I liked about Mitt Romney, I listened while he said, "well, yes what you are saying is true, but I just don't like the fact that he flip flopped." Meaning changed his stance on a few issues. The mainstream media demonized changing ones position on issues by calling it a flip flop.

I pointed out Obama's recent flip flop. Suddenly, I got excuses to the effect these guys are all politicians, and flip flopping is to be expected, and its really not that bad. Too much Kool Aid?

The liberal media knows that most people will not see, or inquire any deeper than what is presented to them. These people know how to complain on cue about Romney's flip flop, and to ignore Obama's flip flopping and his blatant lies.

When Obama was the rich guy, and his opponent, John McCain, was the guy who did not have enough money to campaign as heavily as his rival, the media was bragging about Obama's money. I recall that the liberals were saying, that Obama's money meant that he was "smarter" than John McCain, and that because he is so rich, he will do a good job with the economy.

Now, money was suddenly a bad thing, and the democratic party knows that the majority of people are not going to remember three years ago that they were the "rich party", while the Republican (McCain) carried around his own suit cases, and lap top, and Obama hob nodbed with the idle class.

No, there was no affinity for the guy who could not afford to bulldoze his opponent through hard cash marketing, negative ads, and of course those Bel Air fund raisers. Rich was in Vogue when Obama was the richest politician in the running!

Furthermore- When I pointed out that President Obama said that he would be the most transparent president ever, and immediately pushed through the stimulus basically bullying those who were trying to read it with, "there is no time, it must go through now," and we are still finding out what was in the stimulus. These liberal minded people responded, "I don't remember that."

I guess MSNBC fails to remind them.

I also discovered during my conversations with these protesters, that there was a huge movement, I can not tell exactly who or what was actually generating it, that pays these people to protest. One of these women had a daughter who's job was being a gay rights activist. She was receiving $12 per hour plus commission to stand in front of markets asking people to sign petitions.

Sure enough I saw an add on Craigslist asking for global warming activists. The numbers were the same as what the woman at the occupy protest mentioned. $12 per hour.

Yes, the democratic party knows who their target voters are for the elections.

      Thank you so much for your comment Trailspark,

      No need for any apology for making it long. This is a very good comment. I never thought the left thinking ahead to Romney being the candidate, but it makes sense. The crazy things that have happened at these uncivilized rallies are hardly mentioned, yet there are many crazy assumptions about the Tea Party being a racist group ect.

      Having been to one Tea Party with my Latino friends and seen many black people, I find that a silly attempt by the media to demonize the organization.

      Historically socialists resent wealth, so when Obama was running I mentioned his wealth to a bunch of liberals. They smiled and said that his money was evidence of his superiority to McCain. Yes, we want a guy who is smart enough to have a lot of money. "It really does not matter how he got it". Those same Democrats are now hating the rich and assuming that Romney must be crooked to be so wealthy. Ugh, the liberal media!

      Great piece, Skarlet! It was tough for the Left to sit back and watch the rise and impact of the Tea Party--a truly grassroots, spontaneous movement with righteous anger and a clear message. Not only was it authentic, but it had historic consequences at election time. The best they could come up with is "Let's rail against the rich," and Occupy Wall Street was born. I've heard it said that some of those on the left who founded Occupy foresaw that Romney would be the nominee, and since he had connections to Wall Street, anti-Wall Street protesters might be a help to Obama during the campaign.

      A movement that consists of people occupying city streets and blocking traffic, while at the same time being unable to articulate what political changes they would like to see, that's not a movement, that's just anarchy. A better name for it might "Hey, we want our time in the spotlight, too!" When I listened to interviews of many of these youngsters it became clear that many of them just wanted an adventure, something different. They wanted to get out of their comfort zones, many of them had never done anything difficult before. For some it was their first time taking a risk, or their first time doing something stressful. And they combined all that with... camping! Weee!

      But as the saying goes, "By their fruits ye shall know them." Whereas the Tea Partiers were well-mannered grownups who cleaned up after themselves and stayed focused on ideas, the Occupiers, well, not so much. A couple of murders/deaths, a slew of rapes, the destruction of millions of dollars of property, businesses outright destroyed. Using the street as a toilet, the outbreaks of diseases, stealing from each other (ipods, cellphones, laptops)... Spoiled brats on parade, mixed in with Marxist revolutionaries and union creeps. Whether they know it or not.

      Sorry this is so long.

      Hmm... what to say about this article? I am involved in Occupy. I only agree with one thing in your article: occupiers that put small business out of business are hypocritical assholes. Occupy is supposed to be about curtailing corporate power and thus putting a small business out of business is self defeating.

      I will admit that Occupy isn't easy to understand from the outside. For one thing occupations vary city to city. It's decentralized and no one can speak for the movement as a whole. So if you went and talked to a few incoherent assholes, got frustrated and left you probably haven't enough experience to fully understand it. I don't fully understand it and I've been involved with it since November! From my experience occupiers do seem to be liberal (except for the Ron Paul supporters) but don't have any soft spot for Obama. I joke that the 2012 campaign is Obamney (D) vs. Obamney (R). Neither of them are in conflict with the philosophy of tax cuts for the rich and austerity for the poor. We really can't count on the politicians and the people who bankroll them for anything.

      PS: sending to criminals to Occupy camps and paying petitioners money for signatures are both common practices.

      @ Hubert- Thank you very much for the compliment, I appreciate it very much. You are right, the mass is so busy thinking about beating up the big guy, I don't think they have considered what they will face when there is no one left to attack.

      @ Tom-Exactly! They don't know who or what they are actually working for, or what they are doing.

      @Mike-That is what I have been thinking all along. You just can't re-design nature, and we keep trying to "fix" or equalize things, and as a result, create more problems.

      Natures rule in the animal kingdom has always been "Survival of the Fittest". That is just the way it was intended to keep the species strong. When man gets involved, it totally upsets the balance of nature, and the herd gets weak. Now man has gotten involved with the people herd, and the results are showing.

      The left uses the Stooges in Unions and the young and uneducated/undereducated. The left uses the out of work-the underemployed the under achievers the under motivated all easy prey for the class warfare specialists like Sharpton, Jackson, and Obama. These people are measured by their good intentions and not the results of their actions. The folks they "claim" to represent are not helped but the left should e judged by their "intentions" but not the consequences of their actions nor the results. Obarry wants credit for his intentions on Healthcare but not how the whole system will be destroyed by Obummacare... The Occupy -space protestors are only unknowing idiot pawns/stupid fools in all this.

      Well, I guess we can't call them disgruntled unemployed anymore, since they seem to be gainfully employed in the task of destroying America. I wonder how enamored they will be with their accomplishments when the bill of rights is abolished and protesters are shot in the streets for opposing the government.

      How pleased will they be when they get their dream of redistribution of wealth,and not only they have nothing but neither will job creators because the government will have all the money. Just a couple questions that come to mind. Very good writing Skarlet. Great hub.

      Thank you TH.

      You are very sweet, funny and insightful.

      You wife is a very lucky woman.

      How well said, your comment is. It is scary because as you said "working on their 4th and 5th degrees." That is how the communist countries operate.

      I don't remember who said this but I am going to quote it in my awkward way, "Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." I love that because when I was in school, that is how I saw myself.

      oh Skarlet if i wasn't already married i'd be at your door with flowers and a diamond my wife you are a beautiful smart female business woman... with great political sense. I talked to some Occupy space members in Buffalo-I recognized some of those hippity dippity types from the geology program I went to college with them in 1995

      they were working on their 4th and 5th degrees!!!

      tey were shocked i had gotten a job with my geology degree and 3 science minors and education degree alone - i did it in only 5 years... I couldve been out in 3 years had i skipped the second major and 3 minors but i digress

      and when i read your account all that was missing was .. the "we are here for fairness" i asked how are you going to get it... after a second- they accessed the right script and spit out how money is unevenly distributed....

      i said you mean unearned....

      "ah well its earned by the working class breaking their backs 40 and 60 even 80 hours a week"-

      To which i say, "they are not paid they work for free huh?"

      "Not paid enough"

      "What's enouh?"

      "A good wage"

      "What's a good wage? who decides what one is?"

      *crickets n stammering....well i gotta get back tom good seeing ya you too mike you toohave fun protesting tonight could get cold december in Buffalo...."

      @ Texshelters- I deleted your comment. Its typical to have someone from the far left comment something the way you just did. Anytime facts are presented that you they do not like, they come out swinging.

      I have let you ramble in my comment section before, but from now on its DELETE.

      First you said that this is misinformation.

      I was there.... I was not dreaming.

      Second - You made the statement that no one was hurt.

      Reality check. That woman and her family were hurt right in front of my eyes.

      There is no telling how many people are being hurt. I don't hang out there.

      You remind me of the people I was righting about.

      Forget the facts, and who cares who it hurts, just keep protesting.

      Skarlet - as usual, thanks for this on target Hub. I agree that this group has no idea what they're about -- or not. Seems they're just a group of "have-nots" without the desire to work towards being "haves" so insult and denegrate every thing and everybody so they'll have an excuse to continue having no goals or direction. Looks like a bunch of bottom feeders who joined forces to promote nothing. Voted up! Best/Sis

      Thank you fherj48, Mike and breakfastpop.

      They really are starting to get under my skin. Its like fherj48 said, "monkey see, monkey do." Everyone is angry and marching over something, so they join the crowd.

      And Poolman- they do need defined goals, but, they don't seem to want them.It appears that they would rather be an unruly mob.

      preakfastpop- Interesting that you should mention unions, I have heard a few things about that, and when I found out that there are paid activists, including, I just discovered, my friends drop-out daughter.

      The movement is bogus and fueled by people who would love to see our system fail and be replaced by socialism. The unions are behind it and so are other very powerful America hating groups. I wouldn't give these losers the time of day. Up useful, interesting and awesome.

      I still see no organized leadership for this group. When asked,they are all over the map in what their specific issues are supposed to be. It appears that most just have nothing better to do, and are hanging out with their own kind. Until they get some leadership and defined goals, they will only be an unruly mob.

      Skarlet....I too believe that many of these protesters are just doing this for the attention and need to make noise. Individually, they haven't a clue what's going on and/or what is best for all of America.

      Monkey see, monkey do....if you ask me. Their message is NOT clear. I have not made heads nor tails of their rantings, other than gimme gimmee.....

      Thanks for an interesting hub. UP++

      Nice article. The occupy chaos is so out of control it's getting to a level of utter stupidity. I saw one of their organizers explain that the government is planting rapists and other violent criminals in their protests in order to give them a bad name. No proof, just pure stupidity.
