Republicans and Democrats used to have some pretty significant differences between the two parties, today picking between the 2 is a lot like picking between a box of turds and a bag of turds. The packaging might be different but you’re still getting the same shitty product.

Social Policy

Republicans
Do what we say you can do, go to jail if you do otherwise

Democrats
Do what you want, just do it the way we say you can

Fiscal Policy

Republicans
Print money, alter rates, play favorites, spend huge amounts on war and militarism.

Democrats
Print money, alter rates, play favorites, spend huge amounts on entitlements and welfare

Foreign Policy

Republicans
Make a few friends then bomb and pillage the rest of the globe on their behalf or in the name of “freedom”, arm rebels in foreign lands then a decade or two later fight the same rebels and the weapons we gave them

Democrats
Make a few different friends then bomb and pillage the rest of the globe in the name of humanitarianism and international law at the expense of domestic/constitutional law, after the bombing and pillaging is over spend billions of dollars convincing the population that it was in their best interest and we should be friends

Size and Scope of Government

Republicans
Government limited to only: entering numerous unconstitutional and undeclared wars, instituting religious morality as law, enforcing police state-esque policies against its citizens, instituting fascist policies of corporate welfare

Democrats
Government is limited to only: instituting communist policies of redistribution of wealth, providing anything from cell phones and birth control to health insurance to the population via taxation, implementing racist policies such as affirmative action to stop racism

The Constitution and Bill of Rights

Republicans
Claim to respect the constitution and abide by it while they strip us of our freedoms a little at a time.

Democrats
Claim the constitution is a “living document” and excuse themselves of its responsibilities while they strip us of our freedoms a little at a time.

Office of The President

Republicans
Use the Presidency to wage unilateral wars of aggression without congressional approval, bypass the legislative branch by using executive orders to impose their will

Democrats
Use the Presidency to agree to international law and enter multilateral wars of aggression without congressional approval, bypass the legislative branch by using executive orders to impose their will

In my opinion this two party system is a massive failure. I also believe that anyone who votes by party and not by principles is contributing to the failures of our government. I have voted for Democrats, I have voted for Republicans, and I have voted for Libertarians, I have voted based on who I wanted to represent me and who stood for things that I believe in. Voting Republican just to “beat Obama” is stupid, vote Republican because you agree with the candidate. Voting Democrat because Republicans are evil corporatist’s bent on controlling the world is stupid, vote Democrat because you agree with the candidate.

In summary, a better informed electorate and thoroughly researching the candidates for office before voting for them is the real solution to the 2 party problem. Scumbag Politicrats will always take advantage of an uninformed and apathetic electorate and lie their way into power, it is up to us to stop them!

  1. Excellent post as usual. Libertarianism is the only political philosophy that protects our natural rights.

      Thanks for the nice words, they are greatly appreciated as is your continued support.

      I of course agree with your statement, Libertarianism is our only hope.

      Did you get the issue with the comments figured out? I didn’t find anything wrong when I checked into it.

      • I tried to comment at least 5 times on your “When in doubt, FDR” post, and it didn’t work.

      • swburke21 says:

        One comment of yours showed up on the FDR post and I replied to it. But that was all that came through.

        Maybe it was a glitch with WordPress? I have uploaded posts from my cell phone on the app a few times and had nothing ever show up on the blog. Are you commenting through the app or through the website?

        Also, I double checked about comment approval. Once I have approved you for comments any comment that you leave with automatically show up. I could delete comments or unapprove you at any time, but I have not done so, and do not wish to unless the blog gets spammed.
