I can't speak for anyone else, but it comes down to because the arguments in this video are absurd. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnpBFxvLxJE"]Mom, Dad.... I'm a Democrat.... - YouTube[/ame] If you want to really help the less fortunate why not work hard and then give money to them directly, like this guy did? Las Vegas families split $1 million gift from casino owner - News - ReviewJournal.com If you don't want to pay high interest on your student loans don't take them out in the first place. How does putting thousands of people out of work help? Does doing it in the name of education make it better? If doing bad things in the name of something good is acceptable why don't we start a holy war and go kill people? Everyone in this country already has equal rights and equal opportunity under the law, what Democrats want is equal results in the name of fairness. See number 3 for my response to that idea. People should be able to keep their homes even if they loose their jobs? What about all the people that earn their living off of building those homes, are we supposed to pretend that people not paying for a home doesn't negatively impact them? "I believe in good affordable healthcare for everyone." So do I, which is why I think we should get the government out of the way, end the absurd practice of giving employers a tax benefit for insurance, and put that money in the hands of the people who actually use the insurance. In other words, I am not a Democrat because I can think for myself. By the way, the fact that I can think for myself also explains why I am not a Republican.
