There is a fundamental difference between the two parties. In fact when I was young and they actually taught History, Government, and Civics in school, you could see that this fight has been going on since before our country began.
Democrats believe in Democracy, it is what they continually push. That is the reason they continually push for our elections to be decided by popular vote. The Republicans continually push to bring us back to the republic we were designed to be. Our forefathers tossed out the idea of democracy, because the majority is not always right. If the majority was always right, the southern democrats would still have slaves.
Our forefathers chose a republic style of government. Each state is equal in the Senate with 2 Senators. The house has 435 members delegated out by the population of each state.
We have to realize that our founding fathers designed our federal government to make it almost impossible to pass laws and bills. They were afraid of a powerful federal government, because the country we had just fought had a powerful centralized government.
Our country was designed with liberty and freedom as its banner. Every bill passed, every law passed, cuts into the very freedom and liberty that they fought for.
Every law takes away our freedom of choice. Every bill that is passed cuts into our liberty.
"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
The Democrats were the people against equal rights, the Republicans fought for equal rights under Lincoln.
The Democrats, including our present leaders, think that they are more enlightened than most. They think that they know what's best for society.
The Republicans trust the people to know what is best for the country. They also trust the people to spend their own money.
Just mathematically private money businesses and employees make up 51% of the workforce in the US. 49% are public employees, from president to trash collector. 51% is paying the wages and benefits of the 49% with taxes and fees.
That in itself is not sustainable, then you add up the pensions and the give aways and our federal government has spent itself into a 16 trillion dollar hole.
I personally believe we should vote everyone out and start over.
Can it get any worse?
