    If you are a democrat, what democratic policies do you disagree with?

    If you are a republican, what republican policies do you disagree with?

    I find it very curious how people can just tow the party line in every single instance? I am starting this thread to find out exactly how much do people disagree with the respective parties? Do they disagree with them about any of their stances or policies? Are you always in COMPLETE agreement with your party, no matter their policies or their ways of going about getting what they want? Perhaps there are some tactics that your party uses that you might disagree with? I started this in the CDC because I actually want some answers instead of our usual battering of one another's views and party affiliations. :D

    Thanks for your input.

    I'm not really a republicrat, I'm tired of the world police dept they're running, I oppose their position on pot legalization, and I wish they'd drop the social issues to the back burner.

    I don't mind them undermining abortion and the special rights for queers, but they shouldn't be focused on it.

    I'm more of a libertarian I suppose.

    Although I hate the thought of aborting a child, I cannot agree that it should be illegal. If my wife aborted my child, I would leave her. When I was dating, and was told the woman I was dating had had an abortion, I broke off the relationships. Those were the choices I was left with. Bringing the law into it was not, and should not be an option.

    Although I do not like gay marriage, I find the illegality of it hard to defend. Marriage should be a social contract, not a government authorized relationship in the first place.

    I also believe in legalizing Pot. The increased competition for recreational drugs drives down the cost of Beer, and that's GOOD ENOUGH A REASON FOR ME!

    Thank you, Pop! :) It's good to see that some people, while holding their personal views, can understand that some people are in different circumstances and perhaps sometimes circumstances that you might not be able to imagine having to deal with. You don't have to think something is a good thing to understand the downfalls of making it illegal.

    I disagree on banning abortion, but agree about overturning Roe
    I disagree on not allowing SSM, but want to overturn Obergfell in part
    I disagree with the side of the party that wants amnesty.
    I disagree with the side of the party that doesn't want to let the States decide about Pot

    But wouldn't overturning Roe be putting a ban back into effect? I know that abortion is far from tasteful or even appropriate, but what is important to understand is that if a person is THAT much against even being pregnant, that person probably has no business becoming a parent at all. It is good that they are aware of this and decide not to have any children, IMO.

    I am pro choice, but I don't like abortion either. I think it should be a last resort because of sheer cruelty of it. Cutting up a baby in the womb? I don't know about any other mothers here, but when I was pregnant, I thought of my baby as my child and not just a clump of cells. The last thing I would do is allow someone to kill my unborn child just because it was inconvenient to me at the time. However, everyone is not me. There are some people out there who might be in dire circumstances, such as being homeless or whatever.

    So, while I am considered pro choice, I do not agree with the tactics that other pro choicers use. I do not think of abortion as something to be encouraged or celebrated at all. However, it should be option because some people don't have very many other options.

    It would be nice if you answered your question. My answer is I disagree with SOME Republicans. The ones who act like Democrats and support open borders.
