Hi,

I never learned this in school. Maybe someone here could explain.

What does the Democrat and Republican Parties stand for?

If you say your a Democrat what does that mean?

If you say your a Republican what does that mean?

I was told you vote for the person not a party.

So why parties?

I'll try to explain...

The difference between the Republican party and the Democrats is like the difference between Coca Cola and Coca Cola Light.

Ok well I may have lied, though I don't recall doing so. I hope I'm not one of those people that lies without realizing it, that would be embarrassing. Or wait, no it wouldn't because they don't realize it, forgot, sorry. lol

This is the only way to look at these parties:

WHOMEVER IS IN CONTROL WILL SCREW YOU, ME, AND EVERYONE ELSE.

Republicans hate liberals. Democrats hate liberals, but not quite so enthusiastically.

No, it is:
Republicans hate liberals. Embrace all conservatives.
Democrats hate conservatives. Embrace all liberals. Included commies, socialists, fascists and more.

I'll give it another go...

There are a few industrialists and bankers and together they own one party with two departments and brand names; Democrats and republicans

They also own a few nurseries for politicians like the Trilateral Commission and The Council on Foreign relations, among other similar nurseries they founded and finance.

Now, every time there are elections, people from those nurseries are being spammed to the public by the media, which those same industrials and bankers club owns too. whoever wins those elections, a "republican" or democrat", at the end of the day it doesn't matter because they are all nursed and prepared for the job in the same turf and they all eat out of the same turf too, and what's more important, they all get fed by the same hand.

At the end of the day, both Democrat and Republican parties are fronts for a bunch of old rich guys who pull puppet's strings for a hobby.

Hi,

I heard all of that stuff my biological father worked with politicians as well. This is not what I mean.

Let me rephrase the question. What are the founding principals of Democrat and Republican Parties?

Let us go back to the Civil War.
Roots of both parties started there.

Democrats to help blacks get ahead and to put the white southerners down.

Republicans to help the white southerners get ahead and counter the blacks.

That is the most simplistic reason I have ever seen.

Hi

Ok but now more lost. On "American Dad" it was stated that Abraham Lincoln started the Republican Party. I know it's a cartoon but if true why would he want to help the white southerners get ahead and counter the blacks?

Apparently he was an inspiration to generations of Republicans and yes, closet gay:

Sexuality of Abraham Lincoln - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexuality_of_Abraham_Lincoln)

And a racist;


I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.

Just as many of his Republican successors today. :sqlaugh:

Republicans will tell to your face they will screw the Nation and how badly

A two party system makes it all into a sporting event: us vs them. But they're really all one party fundamentally.
