Republicans And Democrats Are NOT The Same
This chart (from politicsthatwork.com) is for those of you who think the two political parties are the same. That is not even close to being true. As the chart above shows, the elected members of the two parties do not vote for the same things -- and personally, I like what the Democrats vote for much more than what the Republicans vote for.
Are the Democrats perfect? Of course not. But they are much better than the Republicans, and with the appropriate pressure, they can be even better. I have never found a politician that I agree with about everything, and I doubt that I ever will. The best we can do is find some who support much or most of what we want, and then try to make them better.
There is no perfection in politics, especially in a democracy. And if you demand perfection in your party or candidates, you'll be waiting a very long time. It's just not going to happen.
