Well, both parties are full of corrupt, self serving, egotistical *******s who don't give a **** about their fellow Americans, their country or anything other than power and money.
Boy. Thou hast said a mouthfull there Cali. Couldn't agree more. Self serving *******s each and every one. If they aren't when they take office it doesn't take long for them to follow the herd. No matter the party.
Agreed

Misattributed Quote

* Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

Widely attributed to Franklin on the internet, sometimes without the second sentence. It is not found in any of his known writings, and the word "lunch" is not known to have appeared anywhere in english literature until the 1820s, decades after his death. The phrasing itself has a very modern tone and the second sentence especially might not even be as old as the internet. Some of these observations are made in response to a query at Google Answers.

A far rarer but somewhat more credible variation also occurs: "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner." Web searches on these lines uncovers the earliest definite citations for such a statement credit libertarian author James Bovard with a similar one in the Sacramento Bee (1994):

"Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner."

This statement also definitely occurs in the "Conclusion" (p. 333) of his book Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994) ISBN 0312123337

Democrats and Republicans are very different.

The Republican Party is mostly one race, one religion and even close in age.
They are anti education
only 6% of scientists are Republican
They tend to freeze out and demonize those they consider "different".
Their world view is generally "black or white" and "good or evil", which means they are nearly impossible to negotiate with. This is the reason the entire world is more afraid of Republicans than al Qaeda.

Democrats are pretty much the opposite of all that.
Because Democrats are made up of blacks, whites, young, old, gays, straights, homemakers, feminists, Christians and atheists, every agreement has to be negotiated. That gives the appearance they can't make up their minds, but the truth is, they have much more perspective.

Because so many scientists are Democrats and so few Republican, Republicans have to rely much more heavily on Democrats.

You are a poster boy for what is bad for America.

You are everything the founders loathed.
