    We basically have two partys in this country(U.S). and I know that their differences could fill a book as thick as a 2,000 page Webster's dictionary, but I have a rather basic description of what really makes them different.

    Republicans = Glass 1/2 Full Party(Optimism)
    Democrats = Glass 1/2 Empty Party(Pessimism)

    I know there are such creatures as Moderates, but I don't include them.........they're afraid to commit to anything.....so to me they're a non-entity.

    I think it depends on if you are drinking what's in the glass
    or filling it up.

    And if you're Ted Kennedy, then it's Glass Totally Empty, being held up while you yell at the bartender for another round! :alco:

    And what both parties fail to recognize is that the glass is both half full and half empty at the same time.

    I agree with this assessment. :thup:

    The New Democrats, the Liberals, the Progressives, the Regressives or whatever you want to call them, are still empty of any good new ideas. Their bag is socialism and America is just not buying it.

    All they do is scream and bellyache - as per usual. Same shite, different day.

    It seems to me that the dems are becoming irrelevant, out of being blinded by the darkness, or rather their failure to 'win'. This has serious repercussions, as we may well becoming within the US, as we are world wide, a 'hyperpower' or 'hyperparty' if you will.

    In no way do I believe the GOP is some altruistic wonderkind, if in power on it's own would be benevolent. It's dangerous times we are living in.

    I believe the glass is always 100% full unless the glass is in vacuum. It may not be 100% full of liquid, but the rest of it has air in it.

    I guess this is the view of the Libertarian Party.

    :cool:
