I want to hear from the republicans:

ALL of the reasons why Democrats are evil, corrupt, and out to destroy the country.

Then I want to hear from the democrats:

ALL of the reasons why Republicans are evil, corrupt, and out to destroy the country.

And then I want both groups to explain why you're both not out to destroy the country.

Begin.

Democrats push for a stronger central government ignoring state's rights. They don't care if certain powers are reserved for states, because they believe what is good for one state is good for every state, and so they nationalistically try to create a unitary state, where the central government has supreme sovereignty.

Democrats believe that we should tax more rather than spend less. They push for a progressive tax system, where one segment of the population is taxed more. They constantly push for more taxes for companies, and the rich, while pushing for more tax breaks for the poor. Their tax policies hurt job growth, and make it harder to employ more workers.

Their policies in regards to companies disregard the capability of companies, and are designed to benefit the workers at the expense of the employer. This of course leads to higher unemployment, and less profit for the employer.

Democrats try to push for socialistic policies, such as the Nationalization of Industry, and social justice, and redistribution of wealth. They commit reverse racism, and violate the liberties of the individual.

Democrats hamper the war effort, and side with the enemy giving them aid and comfort. According to the constitution they are traitors. Democrats push for our surrender in every war, and push for policies that hamper our ability to fight the enemy.

Democrats don't believe in limited government, and their interpretation of the constitution defeats the purpose of the constitution. They twist the words of the constitution, in order to grant the federal government unlimited power, rendering the constitution worthless. They are a danger to the principles this country was founded on.

Democrats are anti-capitalist, ant-individualist, anti-constitution, anti-American and anti-state rights. They are pro-socialist, pro-collectivist, and pro-fascist.

Begin.

Republicans take a very hard stance on reducing spending instead of raising taxes yet almost all of them see the defense budget as completely necessary and are very quick to throw veterans benefits, social security, and other useful social programs under the bus.

Conservative Republicans routinely push for a smaller government yet do the exact opposite when they take office.

Republicans look up to Reagan as the great conservative who raised taxes 5 times while in office and started out as a democrat himself

Republicans repeatedly push for a flat tax which would single handedly destroy any chance of having a balanced budget in any particular year, yet they plan to increase revenue by creating national sales taxes and a host of other taxes as well.

Republicans are pro-war for almost any circumstance but the second that Democrats take a Pro war stance the Republican side accuses them for being over zealous. Republicans had advocated impeaching Obama for the limited role that the US played n the Libyan Civil War yet others from the Republican party wanted to deploy troops to Libya, and some are saying the same should be done for Syria.

Republicans routinely claim they work off the Constitution yet the second that abortion or Gay Rights comes up they all flock to the Bible about why it shouldnt be legalized. They claim that being gay or having an abortion is a sin yet when asked where it says Gay marriage is a sin in the Constitution they all stick their heads in the ground and wait for all the scary logic and common sense to stop bothering them

Republicans routinely say that Obama is to blame for the lack of the economy but refuse to take into consideration how Bush single handedly inherited one of the best economies any US president could ever get and after 8 years unemployment was accelerating towards 10%

Republicans routinely try to throw workers rights under the bus in the name of protecting businesses who are already seeing record profits. Republicans routinely advocate against Workers unions and in the past have protested the implementation of the minimum wage, safe working conditions, weekends off and lunch breaks, etc

Imagine if a Republican President pulled us out of a recession with 2 straight years of private sector job growth, saved the American auto industry, killed Osama Bin Ladin, aided in helping kill Gaddafi without a single American causality, ended the war in Iraq, presided over the highest domestic natural gas production on record and championed the lowest taxes in history...he'd be a Republican legend. Instead it was a mixed-race Democrat...so that means he's a socialist, anti-American foreign born Muslim who hates Christians and wants to destroy capitalism. Funny how that works.

The Republicans want to make the rich even richer, and bankrupt this nation fighting wars that we don't need. They want our infrastructure to waste away faster, and make only the rich get medical care. The oppose equality (unless they are the rich). They are for family values but frankly are not. They oppose a Strong America, but support a strong nuclear arsenal.

They also are for "state's rights", which we know are code words for racism at the state level. The Democrats aren't for reducing state's rights.

The Republicans actually believe that if you give a rich guy millions of extra dollars, the world will improve. They ignore that consumption is needed. They deny that we had a "free market" at one point, and that we got frequent depressions and a poor quality of life for many, and an wealthy elite.

They Republicans ignore science, and act like being gay is a choice, global warming is a lie, and that renewable energy sucks. What is the problem with Science on their side?

Republicans are pro-Corporatism, not pro-Capitalism. The GOP is a big collection of fascists by a large degree, with others not aware of this. They don't want big government, and instead want big government in the bedroom.

THEY ARE HUGE HYPOCRITES.

--examples:

-----Mitt Romney: George Bush saved us from another Great Depression.. (no this is not a joke he said this)

More Republican "logic": Blame Obama for an economic crash that happened before he took office, but credit Bush for an economic recovery that started a year after he was out of office.

You can also reference Bush getting credit for the killing of Bin Ladin and Rick Perry championing his states balanced budget, using stimulus money, then slamming the stimulus bill as unconstitutional...just for quick couple of examples of this same "logic".

Republicans, how does it feel to know that your party knows you're so stupid you'll believe this crap?

-----They act like the economic ideology is great, and the answer to our problems, why are many "strongly Republican" states poor, pay low wages and rank near the bottom in education?

But then again...those 3 factors help contribute to why they're "strongly Republican" states to begin with.

The GOP (Greedy Old People) act like high wages are harmful to the economy, but want higher wages when it comes to the CEO's making millions! They think that a $2 increase in a wage causes unemployment more than a multi-million dollar CEO salary.

The oppose Cap and Trade, but supported it only a few years ago. Same with the health care mandate.

They support the flat tax, which is totally unfair, and kills any chance of a balanced budget. They say they are the champions of the middle class, yet, they oppose all the programs that help the middle class!

I approve of this thread.

They don't care if certain powers are reserved for states, because they believe what is good for one state is good for every state, and so they nationalistically try to create a unitary state, where the central government has supreme sovereignty.

Democrats believe that we should tax more rather than spend less. They push for a progressive tax system, where one segment of the population is taxed more. They constantly push for more taxes for companies, and the rich, while pushing for more tax breaks for the poor. Their tax policies hurt job growth, and make it harder to employ more workers.

Even Republicans are in favor of taxes. They all support the income tax. They don't want to abolish the IRS.

Their policies in regards to companies disregard the capability of companies, and are designed to benefit the workers at the expense of the employer. This of course leads to higher unemployment, and less profit for the employer.

True.

Democrats try to push for socialistic policies, such as the Nationalization of Industry, and social justice, and redistribution of wealth.

True. Social justice ain't too bad though.

They commit reverse racism,

False. There's no such thing as reverse racism. Plus, the majority of Democrats are white. Are they reverse racist against whites? C'mon. Get real.

and violate the liberties of the individual.

Generally not, but Republicans want to tell you what you can and can't put into your own body. Republicans want to control which video games you play, who you sleep with, what movies you watch, censor the radio, force Christianity and all of its values onto everyone, they want to arrest dying people in hospitals for doing medical marijuana.

Democrats hamper the war effort, and side with the enemy giving them aid and comfort. According to the constitution they are traitors. Democrats push for our surrender in every war, and push for policies that hamper our ability to fight the enemy.

False. They don't side with the enemy they side with non-aggression when it comes to wars. Republicans like imperialism and spreading our American values by force.

Democrats don't believe in limited government, and their interpretation of the constitution defeats the purpose of the constitution.

Same with Republicans.

They twist the words of the constitution, in order to grant the federal government unlimited power, rendering the constitution worthless. They are a danger to the principles this country was founded on.

Same with the Republicans.

Democrats are anti-capitalist, ant-individualist, anti-constitution, anti-American and anti-state rights. They are pro-socialist, pro-collectivist, and pro-fascist.

Same with Republicans.

Agreed.

They want our infrastructure to waste away faster, and make only the rich get medical care.

Straw man. Even assuming that that is the result of Republican policies (a generous assumption), it doesn't mean they intend to cause any of that.

The oppose equality (unless they are the rich). They are for family values but frankly are not. They oppose a Strong America, but support a strong nuclear arsenal.

No warrant behind this claim, just rhetoric.

They also are for "state's rights", which we know are code words for racism at the state level. The Democrats aren't for reducing state's rights.

That doesn't make sense, if States rights are racism at the State level (again, a generous assumption) than the Democrats would oppose it (with good reason). I think, however, that you'll find historically the most ardent states rights supporters were Southern Democrats.

The Republicans actually believe that if you give a rich guy millions of extra dollars, the world will improve. They ignore that consumption is needed.

First of all you arent giving a "rich guy" anything. You're taking less. Secondly, it's not like Republicans advocate taxing the poor and not taxing the rich--they favor a less discriminatory progressive tax or a flat tax. That does not hinder consumption at all.

They deny that we had a "free market" at one point, and that we got frequent depressions and a poor quality of life for many, and an wealthy elite.

Because we didn't.

They Republicans ignore science, and act like being gay is a choice, global warming is a lie, and that renewable energy sucks. What is the problem with Science on their side?

Agreed.

Republicans are pro-Corporatism, not pro-Capitalism. The GOP is a big collection of fascists by a large degree, with others not aware of this. They don't want big government, and instead want big government in the bedroom.

Agreed, and a damn shame that is.

More Republican "logic": Blame Obama for an economic crash that happened before he took office, but credit Bush for an economic recovery that started a year after he was out of office.

Thats partisan politics for you. The democrats do the same damn thing, and you know it too.

You can also reference Bush getting credit for the killing of Bin Ladin and Rick Perry championing his states balanced budget, using stimulus money, then slamming the stimulus bill as unconstitutional...just for quick couple of examples of this same "logic".

Bush instigated the WOT which gave us the intelligence and infrastructure to kill Osama. I don't see how giving him credit for some of it is illogical/hypocritical. Obama no doubt deserves credit too. Perry is an idiot who can't remember what government agencies he wants to eliminate, you shouldn't take his opinion seriously.

Republicans, how does it feel to know that your party knows you're so stupid you'll believe this crap?

That's a harsh thing to say. Although I am no fan of the Republcan party (or democratic one)

-----They act like the economic ideology is great, and the answer to our problems, why are many "strongly Republican" states poor, pay low wages and rank near the bottom in education?

Correlation causation fallacy. You must first prove that Republican economics are actually implemented in the States, and that they're the cause. What tends to happen is that those states are strong Republicans in name and elections only.

But then again...those 3 factors help contribute to why they're "strongly Republican" states to begin with.


The GOP (Greedy Old People) act like high wages are harmful to the economy, but want higher wages when it comes to the CEO's making millions! They think that a $2 increase in a wage causes unemployment more than a multi-million dollar CEO salary.

A flat tax, by definition, is more fair. It only favors the wealthy because they're the ones discriminated against under the current system. Killing off job creators with excessive taxation and regulation doesn't help the middle class.

They Republicans ignore science, and act like being gay is a choice, global warming is a lie, and that renewable energy sucks. What is the problem with Science on their side?

Yeah! Haven't they heard Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"? Seriously, people... Get with the times. And they think global warming is a lie? It must be for some really dumb reason like mars is getting hotter too or something. Psh. Morons.

Republicans are pro-Corporatism, not pro-Capitalism. The GOP is a big collection of fascists by a large degree, with others not aware of this. They don't want big government, and instead want big government in the bedroom.

They want to have big government IN THEIR BEDROOMS?!?!?! The sick bastards...

THEY ARE HUGE HYPOCRITES.

--examples:


-----Mitt Romney: George Bush saved us from another Great Depression.. (no this is not a joke he said this)

He must be a part of the Illuminati, man.

More Republican "logic": Blame Obama for an economic crash that happened before he took office, but credit Bush for an economic recovery that started a year after he was out of office.

What idiotic rubbish!

You can also reference Bush getting credit for the killing of Bin Ladin and Rick Perry championing his states balanced budget, using stimulus money, then slamming the stimulus bill as unconstitutional...just for quick couple of examples of this same "logic".

Psh. More like "Not-Logic"

Republicans, how does it feel to know that your party knows you're so stupid you'll believe this crap?

Yeah!

-----They act like the economic ideology is great, and the answer to our problems, why are many "strongly Republican" states poor, pay low wages and rank near the bottom in education?

YEAH! ANSWER US THIS QUESTION!

But then again...those 3 factors help contribute to why they're "strongly Republican" states to begin with.

0.0

The GOP (Greedy Old People) act like high wages are harmful to the economy, but want higher wages when it comes to the CEO's making millions! They think that a $2 increase in a wage causes unemployment more than a multi-million dollar CEO salary.

THEY JUST WANT OUR MONEY.

The oppose Cap and Trade, but supported it only a few years ago. Same with the health care mandate.

Flip-flopping yellow-bellied fish-mongers!

They support the flat tax, which is totally unfair, and kills any chance of a balanced budget. They say they are the champions of the middle class, yet, they oppose all the programs that help the middle class!

Flat tax? Yeah, man.

I approve of this thread.

Begin.

Democrats push for a stronger central government ignoring state's rights. They don't care if certain powers are reserved for states, because they believe what is good for one state is good for every state, and so they nationalistically try to create a unitary state, where the central government has supreme sovereignty.

The socialistic totalitarian draconian communistic @ssholes!

Democrats believe that we should tax more rather than spend less. They push for a progressive tax system, where one segment of the population is taxed more. They constantly push for more taxes for companies, and the rich, while pushing for more tax breaks for the poor. Their tax policies hurt job growth, and make it harder to employ more workers.

They just want to destroy our economy.

Their policies in regards to companies disregard the capability of companies, and are designed to benefit the workers at the expense of the employer. This of course leads to higher unemployment, and less profit for the employer.

THEY MUST BE STOPPED!

Democrats try to push for socialistic policies, such as the Nationalization of Industry, and social justice, and redistribution of wealth. They commit reverse racism, and violate the liberties of the individual.

Reverse racism? The reverse racist bastards!

Democrats hamper the war effort, and side with the enemy giving them aid and comfort. According to the constitution they are traitors. Democrats push for our surrender in every war, and push for policies that hamper our ability to fight the enemy.

We need to KILL our enemies not take them out to tea and give them money! KILL KILL KILL!

Democrats don't believe in limited government, and their interpretation of the constitution defeats the purpose of the constitution. They twist the words of the constitution, in order to grant the federal government unlimited power, rendering the constitution worthless. They are a danger to the principles this country was founded on.

They're going to put us into concentration camps and rape our women while they simultaneously legalize weed!

Democrats are anti-capitalist, ant-individualist, anti-constitution, anti-American and anti-state rights. They are pro-socialist, pro-collectivist, and pro-fascist.

Kick them out now.

Begin.

Republicans take a very hard stance on reducing spending instead of raising taxes yet almost all of them see the defense budget as completely necessary and are very quick to throw veterans benefits, social security, and other useful social programs under the bus.

Republicans=Dumb.

Conservative Republicans routinely push for a smaller government yet do the exact opposite when they take office.

Hypocrites!

Republicans look up to Reagan as the great conservative who raised taxes 5 times while in office and started out as a democrat himself

Hmph!

Republicans repeatedly push for a flat tax which would single handedly destroy any chance of having a balanced budget in any particular year, yet they plan to increase revenue by creating national sales taxes and a host of other taxes as well.

Some men just want to watch the world burn...

Republicans are pro-war for almost any circumstance but the second that Democrats take a Pro war stance the Republican side accuses them for being over zealous. Republicans had advocated impeaching Obama for the limited role that the US played n the Libyan Civil War yet others from the Republican party wanted to deploy troops to Libya, and some are saying the same should be done for Syria.

The blood-thirsty psychopaths!

Republicans routinely claim they work off the Constitution yet the second that abortion or Gay Rights comes up they all flock to the Bible about why it shouldnt be legalized. They claim that being gay or having an abortion is a sin yet when asked where it says Gay marriage is a sin in the Constitution they all stick their heads in the ground and wait for all the scary logic and common sense to stop bothering them

They're scared of logic because it rapes them at night.

Republicans routinely say that Obama is to blame for the lack of the economy but refuse to take into consideration how Bush single handedly inherited one of the best economies any US president could ever get and after 8 years unemployment was accelerating towards 10%

With the right democratic president, everyone would have a million dollars and their own pony.

Republicans routinely try to throw workers rights under the bus in the name of protecting businesses who are already seeing record profits. Republicans routinely advocate against Workers unions and in the past have protested the implementation of the minimum wage, safe working conditions, weekends off and lunch breaks, etc

Republicans are the reason why Whitney Houston is dead.

Imagine if a Republican President pulled us out of a recession with 2 straight years of private sector job growth, saved the American auto industry, killed Osama Bin Ladin, aided in helping kill Gaddafi without a single American causality, ended the war in Iraq, presided over the highest domestic natural gas production on record and championed the lowest taxes in 50 years...he'd be a Republican legend. Instead it was a mixed-race Democrat...so that means he's a socialist, anti-American foreign born Muslim who hates Christians and wants to destroy capitalism. Funny how that works.

Fixed it :)

Yeah! And he signed the NDAA! Which will make it easier for him to detain and assassinate evil Republicans without a pesky trial! Like a boss.

In a general sense, I'm against the very concept of party lines, and I view Dummycrats and Republitards to be flip-sides of the same coin. I also find people who split their allegiances based on partisan politics to be endemic of a much larger problem.

You either agree or disagree with an issue based upon well-reasoned logic. How your "party" votes should be irrelevant.
