Republicans vs. Democrats

I'm still supporting the view that there is no essential difference between their economic policies, but there may be a slight difference in style. Here is a good way to think about it (this comes from my comment on DeretothRedux's healthcare blog.  A republican will climb up the ladder, pull it up with him so you can't have it, and piss on you from the rooftop. A democrat will climb up the ladder, pull it up with him so you can't have it, give you a friendly smile and prompt you to climb on top after him. While the end result is going to be absolutely the same, your right to choose how that economic meal is to be served will provide for hours, month, and years of heated discussion. Let the debate rage!

Yep.  We have the choice of red or blue.  That's it.

Obama was elected on the promise of change.  Everyone wants change.  What has changed???  Only details.  Did the small things change for the better or the worse?  Who knows?!


-Are we out of Iraq?
-How is Afghanistan?
-Has the deficit been reduced?
-Fiscal responsibility?
-Has the economy improved?  (GDP is lower)
-Has Guantanimo Bay actually been closed?
-Healthcare been reformed?

I'm too tired to remember his other campaign promises, but seriously has much of anything changed?

If the end result is the same, I prefer to not be pissed on.

I'm an independent who has probably voted more blue than red,

however, If I  didn't have to watch or listen to Nancy P, I probably be better off, even if it meant getting pissed on

I can think of one other small difference,  Now the Gitmo crew gets flu shots instead of waterboards.  I bet they are hoping to see alot more Nancy P.

Wouldn't it be better if we had a much, much smaller Fed gov't with much lower Fed taxes?  

The states could choose if they wanted to increase taxes to fill the void of lost services.  Power would be more decentralized and thus reachable by more people.  

A powerful Fed gov't leads to state reps in congress and senate with all the power.

I think it's more like this:

A Republican will climb the ladder and then sell it to Goldman Sachs.  A Democrat will climb the ladder and then sell it to Goldman Sachs.
