  • Republicans are poorly educated people who are against government programs and policies that help the poor, improve public education, regulate business, provide better working conditions for workers, make everyone more financially secure and make the country safer such as welfare, medicare, medicaid, social security, federal deposit insurance credit, the american dep. of agriculture, minimum wage etc. They try to privatize and totally destroy healthcare and social security. Republicans also try to force their religion on the nation and teach Christianity in public schools even though there's separation of church and state. Republicans violate everyone's personal privacy rights such as abortion and they pass the patriot's ACT. They are against abortion yet they will always be there to sentence someone to capitol punishment for a minor crime and they start wars for no reason. Republicans also refuse to provide funding for stem cell research even if it could help us find a cure for cancer. They believe in an economic system where 1% of the population controls 99% of the wealth, where the tax burden is on the middle class and where multi-billion dollar corporations aren't expected to pay any taxes whatsoever.

  • Geez, Red, and still it's better than had Romney been elected.

  • What is there to party about? Higher taxes, no good jobs, high prices, over 16 trillion dollars in debt, kids getting killed in schools, kids get killed being sucked out of the womb by the millions, drought, hurricanes, US fighting a war against terror, and the Dems want to pary. Go figure.
