Neither progress is better. Though with Obama as president, love him or hate him, unemployment has been down and things have improved. Republicans tend to be more conservative. Many are Christians and believe in family values such as a father, mother, and children. But they are more business oriented and all about making money. Democrats are more liberal. They are the ones who support gay marriage. They stand up for the working man, and usually unions are democrats. I feel that Democrats are more for the common, everyday man. Most minorities tend to vote Democratic, because Democrats usually support them more.
