Republicans want to lift all people out of poverty. Democrats want everyone to be equally poor. You do not create wealth for a nation by spreading it around as the new Democrat party wants. The most patriotic thing one can do for their country is to become filthy rich. Think about it before you speak. Don't say all the things that have been indoctrinated into your brains. THINK
Great question. Unfortunately, I'm afraid to answer you honestly, because suddenly all the haters will come crawling out of the woodwork. Please try to keep an open mind, and disregard whatever the lunatic fringe on both sides has to say. Sorry. :-(
The majority of both sides want to help society, both just have different ways of doing it. Democrats generally are pro-choice and want higher taxes on those who make more money than most. Republicans generally are pro-life and want flat and lower taxes. I think these are the most popularly noticed differences.
Republicans are voted in and make choices for the voters, where as a democrat is voted in and they're suppose to bring the questions back to the voters. It's kinda all messed up though because corporations buys both sides and they do what benefits the companies. The companies use lobbyist, and the largest are banks, insurance, and oil companies.
There is basically no difference between the parties, they both care more about their party than they do the country. As for the difference between voters, it all depends on which particular brand of misinformation and mudslinging they believe.
