Everyone has heard the following words at one time or another "Democrats are liberal, while Republicans are Conservative". Is this really true? In order to resolve this question, two questions must be answered, what do the two terms mean? What is liberal and what is Conservative? Some Democrats are conservative and some Republicans are liberal. In this time of turmoil, Democrats and Republicans must work together to promote the common welfare.
In the United States of America, there are a number of national issues that go unresolved and become more of a major issue subsequently. The lack of resolution in some of our nation’s most critical issues is due to the lack of a common ground between opposing political parties. Issues such as healthcare, climate change, abortion, same-sex marriage, taxes and welfare are reoccurring problems in the United States due to congressional gridlock. The cause of congressional gridlock can be attributed to the difference in liberal and conservative views, which can be further examined through some of the nation’s most prominent reoccurring issues such as immigration and gun control.
When you hear the word democratic republicans and federalist you think opposites but let's see why that is. Federalist are mostly recognize as being the wealthy side of the party because all thing that they fight for like the fact that they prefer a National bank. But why do they prefer a National Bank we might think that it’s the same thing but It's not for them its more money to their pockets. Like when we pay taxes they agree with this because when it come that time of the year when people get their taxes they receive large amounts of money. While all of this is going on with the federalist the Democratic republicans which are mostly known as the middle class thought the total opposite of this because none of this favored them. Like they
The most notable policies the republicans proposed have been alternatives to the controversial Affordable Care Act. Patient Care Act, Empowering Patients First Act and Health Care Choice Act are some of the bills that were proposed shortly after what is commonly referred to as “Obamacare” was enacted. Republicans are also prolife, and although it’s a hotly debated topic being on the side of life is generally seen as a positive. The Republican party has a positive pro-business approach that can be seen through different tax plans put forth over the last few years. Donald Trump and John Kasish both released plans to grow business and give business owners a better chance at success. Prolife, pro-business, and alternatives to “Obamacare” policies are all positive positions that republican party as a whole agrees
Democrats and Republicans have very different views, including what Social issues they do or do not support. The biggest social issues of interest include Abortion, gay marriage, legalization of marijuana, gun control, immigration, ISIS, confederate flag and racial inequalities. One of the biggest issues is Abortion, it has been legal since 1973 and democrats fully support it. Republicans do not support abortion, in fact they have tried multiple times to try to make it illegal, but still support pro life. Gay marriage became legal on June, 26, 2015 making the democrats extremely happy, but leaving the Republicans completely opposed to it. Republicans view illegal immigration as an economic threat and a violation of
Political parties are made up of coalitions of people and organizations. Over the years, the Republican Party, the more conservative party, has become aligned with businesses and business interests, while the Democratic Party, the more liberal party, has aligned with the labor unions and minorities and women. In turn, these alignments have shaped the positions of the parties on major public policy issues facing America.
The Democratic Party is the most seasoned political gathering in the United States and among the most seasoned political gatherings on the planet. It follows its underlying foundations to 1792, when supporters of Thomas Jefferson received the name Republican to underline their hostile to monarchical perspectives.
The political power obtained gives the political party the ability to implement their proposed policies and programs making it extremely desirable. Political parties have many significant roles in society including that they act as a means for directing political power, collecting public interests, and providing the public with choices and options. The primary goal of political parties is ultimately the obtainment of power. There are two main political parties which are Democrats and Republicans and both of these parties hold different views and beliefs. Republicans are mainly centered on the belief that each person is in charge of their own place in society. Republicans believe in limiting the intervention of the government in the work of the individual towards success. Republicans believe that the government should not intervene unless it is needed and that the freedom, dignity, and responsibility of the individual are the most important and should come first. Republicans also hold on to the idea that the government should only intervene when society is unable to operate at the level of the individual. Republicans believe that the government should be kept close to individuals as well as to the state and the community as opposed to the federal level. On the other hand,
Democrats support progressive taxes i.e. they want high-income individuals to pay taxes at a higher rate. They support higher taxes on the wealthy to pay for public programs. Republicans support tax cuts for everyone (rich and poor alike). They consider higher tax rates on the rich a form of class warfare. There is greater overall support in the Democratic party for immigration, they believe that a moratorium on deporting or offering a pathway to citizenship to certain undocumented immigrants. Republicans are generally against amnesty for any undocumented immigrants. They also oppose President Obama's executive order that put a moratorium on deporting certain workers. Republicans also fund stronger enforcement actions at the
gun law is hurting people. Democrats on the other hand want to lower taxes for lower
During election times, most individuals are either on the democratic or republican side. Some people are willing to change sides based on who will best fulfill their political views, while others will always be democratic or republican and never change. Democrats and republicans are the same in a few ways but have many different views; some of which are taxes, gun control, healthcare, immigration, and abortion. This year, 2016, I have listened to quarrel debates, heard rumors about candidates, and have seen different protests on social media because of the election that just occurred. As this election has come to a conclusion, I have learned much more about the government and numerous dissimilarities between democrats and republicans.
Not every political party can be trusted. The main two focuses now a days are the biggest liars of them all. Which is democrats and republicans. They all wear there fancy suits, make there money, and complain about who did what and why they did it. But in reality they all want things and don’t want things. Politicians are very similar but yet very different.
The Democratic Party was based off of the ideas of Thomas Jefferson and his belief of, “letting the people rule,” but during the Civil War a divide formed between the party with the issue of slavery, which led to the division of the group and the formation of the Democratic Party that is currently present (“Differences Between Republicans and Democrats,” n.d., para. 3). Those who identify with this party believe in equal opportunities for all members of our society and a decrease in government spending (“Democratic Party Belifs,” 2015, para.
