    Democrats are liberal so it's a loaded question.  Republicans are conservative.

    Democrats tend to be socially aware and generous.

    Republicans tend to have little or no social awareness and care only about themselves and have a philosophy based upon greed and looking out for number one... themselves.

    I would be considered a liberal.  In Canada we have a much wider spectrum of political ideals than in the United States.  I almost always vote for the Green Party who are social liberals.

    We have some pretty way out political parties here.  They don't get any votes but they run for office anyway.  Communists are no longer openly persecuted here but they aren't at all popular.

    And I suspect anyone saying they had communist connections should expect their phones to be tapped.

    I'm neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I vote for individuals based on my own values and beliefs. But this is how I see most politicians.

    Democrats are characterized as liberals. Republicans are generally characterized as conservative.

    What someone said about Democrats being more "giving" is false. Statics show that conservatives give more to charity than liberals.

    Liberals play God. They legislate control and to tell you what you can and cannot not do, "don't eat this, don't smoke, you can't use this or that". They want to make people dependent upon them and the government. Conservatives want people to gain strength, succeed and be free to accomplish as much as they want.

    Elect liberal politicians and they promise you government goodies as long as you keep them in power. They give you just enough to get by to keep you voting for them election after election.

    Liberal politicians take from people who've worked hard to earn prosperity and to give that to others who won't work. They take by force with the power of the U.S. government behind them. If an individual did what they do, it would be called stealing.

    Liberals are expert in class warfare and pitting one group against another.

    Liberals tend to look the other way when someone does wrong, instead of correcting them.

    i don't have any political side really. i back whomever i feel is the right party at the time and it changes depending on who is running a party, what they have been doing for the last couple of years and what their agenda is. basically they are all ran by the wealthy so in reality, it doesn't matter who you vote for.

    I'm not particularly impressed with either party. If Republicans actually practiced fiscal discipline rather than just talking about it, I might be a Republican. I also wish that they did not get so caught up with the "family values" issues. To me, the self-professed values of a politicians are irrelevant. With the Democrats, I'm not quite sure what they stand for. In general, the party isn't all that liberal anymore. This is partly because the country has shifted to the right over the past 30 or so years.

    Both sides, unfortunately, seem scared to do two things: take strong actions that threaten the interests of big corporations and ask the American people to make any significant sacrifices. If a politician of either party had the guts to take these steps, I would support them. Here are some more thoughts:

    I like to look upon myself as a "conservative"...a position which is more broad based than being a "republican" although much belief is shared.  Being a conservative first also allows one to reach out and embrace some views and beliefs of the  liberaterian perspective.  First and foremost I am conservative and base much of my judgments on common sense and logic.  If things don't make sense in my household finances, they don't make sense for our economy either.  I cannot spend myself out of debt and neither can the country.  At the same time, I am not so inflexible that I must embrace the Republican line inch for inch and never stray from it.  As far as I am concerned that violates my belief that I am first and foremost a self-thinker and do not need someone else to tell me what I think about every subject.  That is a problem now in the Democratic Party in that so many current day Democrats embrace the party line because their forefathers did.  They have yet to notice that the party line has shifted significantly to the the left and maybe departed the plane of liberal belief encroaching upon Socialism.  WB
