Many Democrats (like myself) are centrists. While i believe that you should keep most of the money you make, and that you should learn to make money yourself, rather than relying on government handouts. I cannot bring myself to support the current Republican platform.
Ultra Right-wing Baptist fundamentalism is JUST as bad as Ultra Left-Wing Hippie fundamentalism.
Also, In an ideal world, i wouldnt mind paying taxes, as long as the govnernment is doing something with them. I would rather pay more taxes and have them go towards reforming our social system (second amendment) then pay less taxes that go towards killing Iraqi's.
They didn't attack us
They didnt have weapons of mass destruction
They are not liberated, they hate us

Democrat: I'm a Democrat.
Republican: OH! THAT explains it.
Dave(democrat): Yeah, but if I was president 25 years ago, there would of been one then. Freaking idiots running our country.
-The people who got us into a war that we lost (Vietnam), and it took a Republican (Richard Nixon) to get us out of it.
-Large group that obsesses on political correctness and not offending anybody (unless those people are Republicans, of course.)
-Are represented by an ass/donkey; they tend to imitate their party symbol very well.
-Despite the fact that many worry about offending other races, a great majority of them are actually more bigoted and prejudice than you could possibly imagine. Many radio show hosts and others have made racist comments and remarks about Condoleeza Rice, for starters.
-A group that desires to destroy the already-threadbare "Moral Fabric of Society", and therefore the beliefs and values that this Nation was founded upon.
-People who wish to raise taxes to a very high rate in order to fund frivilous programs that only benefit certain groups.
That an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind so we'll give them medication for that.
That the IRS (a government branch that was invented with the help of changing the constitution, see amendment XVI)benefits the welfare of its people by spending it on lower medical standards.
The army is not supposed to provide equality and defend the basic human rights of all peoples, just those of Americans, but that Mexican illegal immigrants should be allowed to live in our country, speaking their language, singing their anthem, and make up our minds.
That the right to religion applies to all people but that Christians cannot spread the teachings of a Jewish man to those they care about based on opposite opinions.
That the minority that believes that homosexuality is normal has the right to force the rest of the population to accept it and believe it's such.
Republicans are not bad, but darn them if they're going to do something that is on their platform.
That killing a murderer for his crimes is not correct, so well just give him a life sentence and he'll get out on good behavior.
Democrat: Alright, but make sure it's only 4 ft. tall so that the Mexicans don't get offended and make up stories about us.
•There should be seperation of church and state, whether or not we were founded by christians
•State's rights are important
•Proving murder is wrong by killing a murderer is stupid
•"Killing" an unborn baby, where the mother could die from childbirth, or was a rape victim, is o.k. If you have masturbated or eat chicken eggs for breakfast how could you be against it.
•Thinks we need to do something about global warming
•Favors higher taxes for a GOOD REASON! There are too many underfunded schools, and over forty million americans without basic healthcare. Taxes pay for that.
•Thinks even if you are against something, doesn't mean it should be illegal for others to do.
•And to all you republicans, its ok to be a republican, but don't go bashing democrats and then not even know how to spell it, or have tons of errors, that is just embaressing.
He is a democrat, he supports funding of schools
