Both are terrible but certain Republicans make them the slightly better party on the whole.

From an economic standpoint I don't think either party knows what the fuck they're doing, and even when they do they choose to help themselves, the companies who won them their election, and their rich buddies instead of fixing things. From a social standpoint Republicans are totally out of touch, and Democrats know this and focus far too much on social issues because of it.

Neither parties are particularly awesome, but the Democrats are at least better than the Republicans. I'd prefer getting rid of both of them, though.

Simple! Dems and Reps are hypocrites that are forced to lie, appeal to the lowest common denominator, and appease horrible special interest groups to remain relevant and stay in power. Sorry, more than 2 words.

Ask me about Libertarianism.

Both Democrats and Republicans want the best for their fellow citizens. It's just that some of their beliefs about what's best can be very different from each other's and from their fellow citizens'.

I gave what I believe is the only accurate answer: both are OK.

Honestly, how many Democrats believe you shouldn't be able to defend yourself, and how many Republicans believe you shouldn't have access to healthcare? The answer is, close to none. It isn't the end goal that causes so much political tension, it's the path we take to get there.

Anyone who is a strict party person is an idiot. There are self-serving scumbags on both sides of the fence.
