Democrats And Republicans Are The Same, Aren't They?


To many, there isn't any difference between Republicans and Democrats.  Those people are usually Low Information Voters, commonly known as fools - and these fools don't care if the Conservatives take over the reins of government...

"Senate Polls Show Edge For GOP."



"Two sets of polls released Sunday find an edge for the GOP in a closely contested Senate midterm environment, although they differ on the size of that advantage.

"A set of online CBS/New York Times/YouGov polls conducted in every Senate race finds an electoral landscape that has remained both competitive and largely stable throughout the year, with changes of less than 4 points in nine of the 10 most competitive races. Republicans "hold at least a nominal lead in eight states held by Democrats, more than the six they need to retake the chamber," writes the New York Times' Nate Cohn. The Times' Senate model gives Republicans a 61 percent chance, or a 'slight edge,' of retaking the Senate..."

So let's make some comparisons...

"Mitt Romney Claims That He Would Be a Better President Than Obama Or Hillary Clinton."

"Chris Wallace asked Romney if he would be a better president than Hillary Clinton, 'No question about that in my mind. The American people may disagree with me. You’ve got to get this economy going. You have to have people who understand what it takes to create jobs, and to help people come out of poverty, to help the middle class have a better and more prosperous future. You’ve also got to have people who have run something. The government of the United States is the largest enterprise in the world. You’ve watched a president who just doesn’t understand how to make an administration work, how to interact with Congress, how to get things done. I don’t think Hillary Clinton has that experience...'"

Mitt glories in his hundreds of millions of dollars earned on the backs of fired workers, because it's the Republican way...

"America's Wealth Gap 'Unsustainable' According To Harvard Study."

HOMELESS

"BOSTON, Sept 8 (Reuters) - The widening gap between America's wealthiest and its middle and lower classes is "unsustainable", but is unlikely to improve any time soon, according to a Harvard Business School study released on Monday.

"The study, titled 'An Economy Doing Half its Job,' said American companies - particularly big ones - were showing some signs of recovering their competitive edge on the world stage since the financial crisis, but that workers would likely keep struggling to demand better pay and benefits.

"'We argue that such a divergence is unsustainable,' according to the report, which was based on a survey of 1,947 of Harvard Business School alumni around the globe, and which highlighted problems with the U.S. education system, transport infrastructure, and the effectiveness of the political system...'"

Where would we be with yet another Conservative president?

"Pres. Obama Destroys Chuck Todd’s False Equivalency Between the Two Parties."



"President Obama patiently explained the important distinctions between the two parties, and why voters should care about the outcome of these elections, after Meet the Press host Chuck Todd asked why anyone should care about the midterm elections if it will only lead to a two-seat majority for either party.

"The President explained that 'there’s a sharp difference between the Democratic agenda and the Republican agenda.'

"Pres. Obama supplied a list of important issues that Democrats care about, and will certainly introduce in Congress if given the chance, but that Republicans bitterly oppose. Those issues include raising the minimum wage, equal pay for women, family friendly labor policies, and stimulating the economy by making necessary investments in things like roads and bridges..."

But isn't President Obama responsible for the mess in the Middle East?



Well, unofficially he's not as successful as our Conservative presidents...

"It’s Official: President Obama Is The Best Economic President In Modern Times."

"A new economic report, published by Forbes.com on September 6, 2014, clearly shows that President Obama is the best economic president in modern times. It’s not an opinion, it’s a fact, based on all of typical the economic indicators, including jobs, investments, growth and expansion, even the rate of inflation. In all of these areas President Obama’s record outperforms that of every other modern president, including conservative idol, Ronald Reagan.

"Under President Obama’s leadership, the unemployment rate has now decreased to 6.1 percent, the lowest it’s been since 2007, when the economy began gushing jobs under the failed leadership of then president George W. Bush.

"Typically, republicans have tried to detract from the president’s accomplishments. When it comes to the falling unemployment rate, they claim that it is somehow related to large numbers of people just dropping out of the workforce. This would almost be believable if the economy wasn’t creating new jobs at a rate that coincides perfectly with the falling employment rate, but it is. There have been six consecutive months with more than 200,000 new jobs created, with only a slight dip in that number in August. Additionally, there have been 63 straight months of economic expansion and more than two solid years of manufacturing expansion..."

So what should we tell our Low Information Voters?

"Democrat vs. Republican."



"This comparison examines the differences between the policies and political positions of the Democratic and Republican parties on major issues such as taxes, the role of government, entitlements (Social Security, Medicare), gun control, immigration, healthcare, abortion and gay rights. These two parties dominate America's political landscape but differ greatly in their philosophies and ideals...

"Since the division of the Republican Party in the election of 1912, the Democratic party has consistently positioned itself to the left of the Republican Party in economic as well as social matters. The economically left-leaning activist philosophy of Franklin D. Roosevelt, which has strongly influenced American liberalism, has shaped much of the party's economic agenda since 1932. Roosevelt's New Deal coalition usually controlled the national government until 1964...

"Republicans, are usually considered conservative (fiscally as well as socially), maybe a little pious, pro-business and against the bureaucracy often associated with big government. They see big governments as wasteful and an obstacle to getting things done. Their approach is Darwinian in that the strong shall survive, cream rises to the top, etc..."

Still think there's no difference?



********************


We've railed against the Low Information Voter since the inception of this site, and our position remains the same because the LIV remains the same -- ignorant and uninformed.

The differences between Democrats and Republicans are vast, and the Conservative-dominated Republican Party is hell-bent on a mission to destroy every aspect of democracy they can.

They've been on the attack since the Constitution was signed, and enough time has gone by to show us  that they are as relentless as they are criminally inclined.

There oughta be a law.
