Well, the best way I can describe what the difference between a Democrat and a Republican is a joke I once heard.
A little girl saw a homeless man on the street asking for money. She asked her parents if she could give him five dollars. The Democrat parent said, "I'm very proud of you for wanting to help that homeless man." The Republican parent said, "I tell you what, if you mow the lawn, I'll give you five dollars and you can give it to the homeless man." The little girl thought about it for a minute and said, "What don't you ask the homeless man to mow the lawn and give him five dollars instead?" The Republican parent said, "Welcome to the Republican party."
And this is why I'm more Republican than anything else. Everyone should be responsible for themselves, as much as possible.
That's not all though. Republicans are supposed to be for less Government spending. Notice I wrote, "supposed to be."
GW Bush was a Republican, and he surely didn't believe that. Of course, President Obama doesn't believe in it either.
Unfortunately, things have changed. Why? Money. Money is the root of everything now. In order for these crooked politicians and their parties to get money, they have to be in charge. To be in charge, they need your votes. So they try to appease you and tell you what you want to hear to get your votes.
If you are in charge of a large voting block, like a Union, you get showered with promises. Doesn't matter if those promises are kept, as long as those promises are made. Heck, blame the broken promises on the "Other" party.
Honestly, now, it always seems to be a choice that comes down to the lesser of two evils. What ever happened to choosing the best person for the job?
So, even though I am a Republican, I'm not "Today's" Republican. I'm just a relic of what once was. Today's politicians are no longer working for the people. They're working for themselves and their wallet.
Remember this, "Politics. Latin for Poly and Tics. Poly = Many / Tics = Blood sucking parasites."
