Question: I have come to the conclusion that it really does not matter which of the two major political parties is in power. Do either of these parties act upon their petty campaign promises? It is so obvious to me that they will say anything to get elected and then, once in power, they will simply blame the other party for why they NEVER deliver on those promises. I am so sick of these Democrats and Republicans. THEY are destroying this country and WE are too occupied with defending what we all know to be the lesser of two evils. I really hope I am, person whose name is period. Please inform me. Wow. Well you really proved your intelligence on that one, period.

Very often it's the Independent vote that decides the election! Be an Independent and don't let a political party take your vote for granted! In either party there are people of many types. Ron Paul and Bush are both Republicans, but what a difference! There's a big difference between the Democrat Blue Dogs and the Progressives, yet they are all Democrats. It comes down to doing your homework and supporting candidates who represent your views as much as possible. Pay special attention to who contributes to the candidates and voting records and backgrounds. Sure, we'll still get fooled sometimes and there will be a lot of people who vote for frivolous or selfish reasons or because they believe a load of BS. But at least we can do our best to put people in office who actually do represent us and don't sell out to the party game. In some cases it's best to consider a third party candidate if for no other reason than to make a statement. We need Americans who represent Americans in office, but we don't necessarily need Republicans and Democrats.

Raphaela Originally Answered: Are Democrats patriots or the new Tory Party?
They are Communsit 1963 Communist Goals The following was entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69) in 1963. 1) US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war 2) US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war 3) Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of "moral strength" 4) Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. 5) Extension of long term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites 6) Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination 7) Grant recognition of Red China, and admission of Red China to the UN. 8) Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the UN 9) Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress 10) Allow all Soviet Satellites individual representation in the UN 11) Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the UN as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo) 12) Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party 13) Do away with loyalty oaths 14) Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office 15) Capture one or both of the political parties in the US 16) Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights. 17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism, and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in text books. 18) Gain control of all student newspapers 19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. 20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. 21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures. 22) Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings", substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms. 23) Control art critics and directors of art museums. " Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art". 24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press. 25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography, and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV. 26) Present Homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as "normal, natural, and healthy". 27) Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch" 28) Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state" 29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30) Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man". 31) Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of "the big picture:" Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. 32) Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture - - education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. 33) Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. 34) Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. 35) Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI 36) Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. 37) Infiltrate and gain control of big business 38) Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat. 39) Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. 40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. 41) Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. 42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a "united force" to solve economic, political, or social problems. 43) Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. 44) Internationalize the Panama Canal. 45) Repeal the Connally Reservation so the US can not prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike. --------------------------------------...

I totally agree. It is not about defending "OUR CANDIDATE" it is about calling out the corruption and misdeeds and kicking out the bimbos that refuse to listen to the voters. It is suppose to be a government of the people by the people and for the people but it have become a government of special interests for the politicians. I am not defending any of the pukes. I think you might find one or two that really have public service in their hearts; the majority have self service in their pockets when they want to go to Washington. We need to carefully Vet these people we send to Washington regardless of their political label and make sure we have a good honest person whether they are R D I or what ever their label. When you vote the lesser of two evils you still get evil. I will not vote for anyone that have political ties to anyone in Washington. I want people that are new and not obliged to pay back to anyone but the people that sent them to Washington.

I disagree that Democrats are bad, if you study history just a tiny bit you will find that Democrat Presidents bring prosperity and Republican Presidents bring debt-but that is neither here nor there right now Not that many people believe the Republican party is any better, except for the people who play here on Yahoo Answers-most people were too battered by the Republicans during the Bush years that they are not ever going back to them

We need to stop electing people based on the party they belong to, and start picking them based on the content of their character. I only vote for politicians in any capacity who seem to me to be in politics to be of service. I reject outright any candidate who seems to me to be in it for their own ego's sake ( Obama is a shining example of this one).. I look for the candidate who comes across as a civil servant, not someone who wants to govern or "rule" others. The party means nothing to me.

Allene Originally Answered: Democrats twist the facts on "44 million uninsured Americans." Don't be mislead?
I would be one of those uninsured but I get health care through my church. I know a lot of other people who do the same. And there are a lot of college students who are technically uninsured but can recieve health care through the health dept. and through their school.
