14. Yes there is
Both parties only think of themselves as far as I'm concerned and until I see otherwise after this next election I trust no party at all. I did consider myself a Dem, but after all these lies and what can I say to get votes thing is crap. All I have seen in my life are politicians saying what they must to get in then crap on everyone why should they care they got what they wanted.

As far as general people I would trust a Dem before a Repube. As far as offices of the current Dems I see no difference.
