Democrats vs Republicans, you're gonna love this:

15 differences between Democrats and Republicans:

Iíve noticed over the years, there are some fundamental differences in the way Republican and Democratic politicians think. Here are just 15 examples.

Republicans fear that the government has too much control over corporations. Democrats fear that corporations have too much control over our government.

Democrats believe it benefits all of us to help the weakest and the poorest among us. Republicans believe it benefits all of us to help the wealthiest and most powerful among us.

Republicans believe large corporations will always do what is best for the American people if the government stays out of the way. Democrats believe large corporations would disembowel you and sell your organs to the highest bidder if the government didnít stop them.

3. Nothing like sweeping generalities to achieve real meaninglessness.

States require businesses to incorporate. These corporations, big and small, are how we survive. Some are gems and some are lethal.

Damn shame you can't tell the difference.

7. Msongs wasn't refering to the quality of corporations

 

Or the lack thereof.

Just that many Democrats are in favor of them. Similarly to the GOP.

Damned shame you can't tell the difference.

6. Great list. But I don't think republicans actually think about their positions that deeply.

The end result of their ideology is exactly what this article says but if you actually asked a republican if they believed those things, many of them they would deny because they cannot admit to themselves just how ineffective and counter-productive their policies and practices really are.

Democrats believe that women should manage their own bodies. Republicans believe that Republican government and fundamentalist churches should manage women's bodies.
