22. Democrat vs Republican comparison

Last edited Fri Jun 15, 2012, 09:28 PM - Edit history (1)

Democrats fight for middle class values, Republicans fight for the privileged few.

Democratic economic philosophy is based on sustainable middle class values.

Republican economic philosophy is based on purposefully flawed circular logical.

Democrats believe in honest work that builds fair equity, saving money to create a stable nest egg of wealth, and a system that safeguards everyone against unnecessary risk taking.

Republicans believe in trickling-down economics and a predatory form of disaster capitalism that enables greed and corruption to flourish, relies on leveraged buyouts, hostile takeovers, gushes wealth to the top, and always eventually crashes a healthy economy.


Summary: The circular logic created by Republicans causes cycles of disaster capitalism.

In the beginning, the middle class is allowed to pursue the American dream, buy a home and create a nest egg. The strength of the middle class builds/grows the economy until the flaw, Republicans have built into the system, causes the economy to crash. The crash causes the middle class to suffer huge loses, wipes out the middle class and forces them to start all over again.
