I am guessing the cons haven't gotten online yet.

Throughout history, democrats have proven their superiority. Theodore Roosevelt was a trustbuster who fixed corrupt businesses such as the meatpacking industy. Sure, you can say that his contributions were meanngless. Why would anyone care if he stops a scandal from a famous meatpacking industry? Consider this, woud you like dead rats, poison and human flesh in your meat?

Triangle, I didn't expect you to vote "it depends" I thought you would have voted con.

I would have voted con if I were completely against them, like I am with the communist or anarchy ideology.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T09:08:56.7099976-05:00
I don't understand why you like the anarchy ideology.

"Seriously, people, perspective! So what if you can be fired or refused service in a restaurant for being gay? No one's hanging you, so quit your unreasonable demands for equality." - Republican senator, Tom Cotton

"shut up and be grateful we're not executing you." -Republican Senator, Tom Cotton

Ahh. I misread you Triangle, sorry.

I don't like democrats or republicans. In fact, I think our nation would be better without divisive political parties.

I would love to see a resurrection of a sane GOP. For all the Reagan love, the wheels of the bus really came off with him and no one seems to willing to take it to the shop.

"I would love to see a resurrection of a sane GOP. For all the Reagan love, the wheels of the bus really came off with him and no one seems to willing to take it to the shop." So a bus with wheel on is nixon? What on earth do you consider a running GOP bus if nixon is it with the wheels on?

Nixon, for his enormous faults, was still a better representation of the GOP than, say, Bush. What I am getting at is, Reagan (and we can talk about him individually too) ushered in a fundamental shift in what the GOP was and is. Turning... Well, for brevity, its membership into a cult. Mixing lots of religious pandering into the platform really did a number on the party. So to, the almost god like vision of "the free market".

I agree with the Republicans on multiple occasions such as No Gun Control however there are several area which i disagree with such as abortion, gay marriage, global warming and alternative energy. And for those who use Lincoln as an example, Lincoln was by modern definitions a Libertarian, not a republican although he was a member of their party.

"Candidates matter. Not the party." -Tonius You bring up a good point. I will consult a Republican senator, Tom Cotton, and ask him something. (A few minutes later) This is what he said to me: "shut up and be grateful we're not executing you." -actual quote from Cotton about homosexual people

I'm sure most people are for Republicans at the moment because it was a Democrat majority in Congress that helped pass the ObamaCare law. I wonder if the Republicans will do something bad that will shift the majority back to supporting Democrats.
CyberConor says2015-04-10T10:53:34.8680753-05:00
CommunistDog obvious is a democrat. Look at Detroit after 50 years in control by liberals. Now imagine the entire nation. Not pretty ain't it? We need the opposite, less government interference, we need libertarians.
tcutshaw2 says2015-04-10T13:33:45.1931209-05:00
We need none of the above. We need people thinking rationally for their country, not just themselves or their political parties/stances.

It's recovering from old wounds. Yes, it will never be completely repaired, but in the hands of a democrat, America has improved. Don't take it from me. Take it from African Americans (many were faithful to the Republicans because of the Emancipation Proclamation made by the Republican, Abe Lincoln) who later became in favor of democrats because of Franklin Roosevelt's actions during the Great Depression.

@CommunistDog the Democrats are also the ones who supported slavery and the Black codes. So have they really proven superiority in history?
CommunistDog says2015-05-09T17:57:00.5054382-05:00
Not the democrat population, but Southern business owners like owners of farming estates did. Those business owners included democrats AND republicans. Although, A republican, Abe Lincoln, used the Emancipation proclamation to free them. Although, there were Republicans who did oppose this because their farm businesses failed soon after, because of no slaves.
