What’s The Difference Between Republicans And Democrats In Congress?

 

Who believes that the House of Representatives, controlled by Republicans and Speaker Boehner, will defund Obamacare?  Who believes that they won’t tell us it’s because they’d have to “shut down the government” if they defunded Obamacare?  We know that the latter excuse is pure baloney – but it’s the only one they can come up with that has any possibility whatever of being believed.

Who believes that House Republicans along with Senate Republicans will band together to block a vote on amnesty?  Perhaps it will be modified and the press and GOP handlers will be called in to come up with a name for it other than “amnesty”, but it will amount to the same thing in its final form.  Does anyone here believe that it will be denied?

It remains to be seen, of course.  I don’t know what will happen, but I have absolutely no faith that Republicans will use their power to prevent the implementation of Obamacare or that they will band together to foil Amnesty.  It would fly in the face of every other result they have handed us over the past several decades.  The key is to forget the labels, “Democrat” or “Republican” and to forget the “platforms”.  As power has shifted back and forth, what has been constant?  Only the advancement of liberal policies and the growth of the federal government.

Taking a hard look at results, can anyone say what the difference might be between the Democrats in congress and the Republican leadership?  If you look at the legislative results, does it matter that there’s a party which supposedly opposes the Democrats and represents us?

How have Republicans used their clout in the House to keep spending down?  How have they used their power there to promote and win any GOP platform goals or ideas?   They pretend, for appearances, to put up a struggle against Obama, but what’s the uniform outcome?  Don't they control the House?  Yes, but then, what did they do when Bush was president and they had an overall congressional majority?   What have they done to prevent Obama from doing all the things that he is doing?  Do you believe that they are afraid of Obama?  Do you believe that they are afraid that the talking heads will call them racists if they oppose and block Obama?  If you do believe the latter, you must also have to ask yourself “Knowing the cost to the nation of allowing it to continue, what kind of person is afraid to be called a “racist”, when not the vaguest shred of evidence or intent of racist behavior exists and everyone knows it?”  At that point, isn’t it just a lame excuse devoid of credibility?  At what point do you see what the results are -- constantly growing government, constantly waning individual rights, continual constitutional breaches – without any effective or sustained response from Republicans, and decide for yourself “these guys are all in bed together”?

Isn’t it clear by now that both Democrat and Republican centers of power are determined that, no matter how it’s done, the US will be an authoritarian state run by an enormous, unaccountable bureaucracy under the control of very, very few people?

So, I’m waiting: what’s the difference between the two parties, other than differences in style or in the lines they use to gain our votes?  I’m not suggesting conspiracies or anything of the sort.  Simply look at results.  When you look at those outcomes and results – and only results, not excuses or “reasons” – isn’t it clear that they are one and the same political party?  Regarding corrective action with reference to the GOP, how is it possible to defend 25 years and longer of ZERO results and then say “we only need to populate the precincts with conservatives” or “we just need to change it a little…”?  That’s just a ruse, a stall which won’t deliver, designed to prevent us from doing the obvious.

It's how the DEMOPUBLICANS get past the watch of a few caring citizens. Propaganda will deceive the country

We need to recall McCain and Flake both, they are serving their interest and not the LEGAL citizens of Arizona. They both passed the Senate immigration bill which has way too much pork in it for the ILLEGALS the bill is only 1200 pages long and I don't believe either of them read it or anybody in their office.

We need to change the republican party because it has become just a democrat party. The democrat party has become the socialist party with a socialist leader

How can you tell a democrat from a republican in Congress. One sits on the left the other on the right.  Other than that they're like siamese twins, equally ungy, none can be trusted, 90% need to be replaced.

One party corporate system, masquerading as two separate political parties that are nothing more than corporations in and of themselves beholding to the Federal Reserve-another corporation. Actually the difference is a Repub tells you what they are going to do and when they get there do something different. Demoncats tell you what they are going to do and do it.

Our oligarchy is alive and deceitfully alive.  I remember the last election Mccain said, 'build the dang fence'.  He says what is necessary when it's election time  then does anything but represent the real desires of the Arizonan people.

My simple explanation on the difference between Democrats and Republicans:

Republicans - Use political influence to control wealth.

Democrats - Use wealth to control political influence.

Republicans aren't embarrassed to be photographed holding the American flag.  Oh wait, those are Conservatives.  Never mind. 

Oct. 16, 2013 will go down in history when it became "official" we have a "one-party" government.  A sad day indeed.

I'm sending my Rep, Dave Schweikert a note, telling him that as far as I am concerned to vote for someone with an (r) following his name is no different, in effect, from casting a vote for someone with a (d) following his name and that in 2014, I will vote for no one with either designation.

Jeff, I don't know the answer, but due to socialized medicine, one party government, only makes this nation far from being a republic.  I attended my Tea-party and everyone is depressed, our only hope is to build-up our states so they can within their power protect it citizens.

That's one route, Karen.  However, it won't stop big-money smoothies from pulling the same thing on us later on.  I favor a new party with a rule which provides for the immediate expulsion of any member elected to office who acts or votes in opposition to publicly written party policy and principles.  Without such a provision, we will only see a continuation of what we're seeing right now.

You might also check out http://afr.org/.  I think they're more in line with what most conservatives are after.  Thanks for the note!

Thank you for the  web-site--I'm now a member.
