    I want someone to explain to me as pertaining to actions each party has undertaken in lets say the last 20-30years what are(if there are any) the differences between Demos and Repubs?

    Don't talk to me about platforms or Conservative vs liberal but explain various legislations enacted and deals struck in Washington when each party has had the power and then attempt to show a difference in philosophy and action between each party. I'm telling you they are 1 in the same when push comes to shove.

    My quick answer would be that they have slightly different methods of obtaining and retaining power. Checks and balances have prevented both from fully implementing thier agendas. That and public apathy.

    Lol there are no differences, each side does not want to enact its real agendas so as not to be labeled "radical". In the meantime they all masturbate in the middle with each other to the same beat and stroke.

    For example....where is my gay marriage amendment? Where are the conservatives in congress on stem cell? Where is the small government?

    I think being willing to defend the country and preemptively dealing with global terror is a fairly significant difference. Let's not get into the circular firing squad like DU, each little wannabe general spouting off whatever crap makes him special at the moment.

    One big difference, and an important one in my opinion, conservative Republicans are pro-religon, liberal democraps are anti anything religon. They're afraid of God and Jesus Christ because they stand in the way of their "if it feels good do it" pro sex with anyone and anything way.

    Yes Pale they campaign on this but once in office their actions speak differently.
