How do democrats think differently than republicans?

We all know that they differ on their issues, but why? Does one group allow tradition and values get in the way of logic and reasoning? Does one see things from multiple perspectives? I'm curious to know your opinions of the psychology of these two parties.

    Despite the answer given by the Conservative Reprobates above...

    I cannot say for sure why we two groups think differently. But from my perspective- I see Republicans as being a bunch of morally impaired hypocrites- not very different in mindset from the Muslim terrorists.

    My father is a staunch Republican, and as a result of my insisting on being a Democrat- he's cut off all contact between me and him. I feel his attitude is one of: My way or the highway. Well I choose the highway. Because I refuse to bend under such two facedness.

    He claims to be the ultimate in Morality, despite the fact that I've known all along about his philandering, and the sibling he sired on an aunt of mine.

    But I'm not too crazy about a lot of the Demos either. yes, there are lot of nutters who refuse to consider the reality that Socialism simply does not work.

    And all too often, they refuse to consider an audit to improve efficiency in place of demanding more taxes.

    ----------------

    Instead of casting aspersion upon one group or another, consider not so much each groups words- but instead consider thier actions, as they relate to what their words say.

    Many Republicans say they want fiscal restraint and constantly claim that Democrats are a tax and spend fanatic. Yet Republicans had complete control over the American Government, and drastically increased the National Debt.

    Many Republicans demand that America isn't the World's Police, yet they feel that we are the World's Police when it comes to Iraq. Yet many Republicans refuse to enlist in the military, even now to support their President and his stated goals.

    And Sex, somehow, many Republicans claim that sex is evil in non married context and yet time and again, we hear of yet another republican getting caught in some sexual innuendo sooner or later. They would have you believe that lying about oral sex is somehow a greater crime than starting an unnecessary war elsewhere when you've got an uncompleted mission in the first place.

    And anyone who makes the slightest criticism is branded: "You just hate Bush!!!".

    So what are the crimes that the Democrats have done? The fact that we expect ALL people to have the same basic needs met? To have everyone treated fairly? To be able to pay without a credit card all of the wonderful things so many expect to have provided?

    Democrats aren't saints, the Kennedys fortunes started out when they were rum runners. Hillary's biggest gaff was the money she made in cattle futures. And yes there are a lot of unanswered questions as to why so many people who had information on the Clintons had so many unfortunate accidents.

    This could go on and on for pages.

    i incredibly do think of that Democrats and Republicans view the international very in any different case. Republicans look lots greater dogmatic and doctrinaire of their political evaluations. They view the international as a series of objectives or ideals to be attained, extremely than a collection of relationships to be courted and persuaded. Republicans look very idealistic and not given to truly doing the irritating paintings of governing. they might extremely create platitudes and then go away the implementation to somebody else. the assumption of "out-sourcing" is quite lots a Republican style of concept and has lots charm to this group who won't be able to stand to compromise or mitigate their ideals. Democrats, on the different hand, are lots simpler human beings. they have self assurance in some very liberal ideals of equality, economic justice, and justice for all, yet they even have self assurance gain those ideals one individual at a time. They know that folk are human beings, no longer push buttons and sometime choose the time, practise, and coaching, to embody those ideals. Democrats are greater possibly to paintings with those with opposing techniques as long as we can agree on a secure protocol wherein to create a talk and consensus of movements or initiatives. that's messy, takes longer, yet additionally lasts and treats those with dignity and appreciate. this way of doing issues is a lot greater Democratic even in spite of if that's much less efficient and greater time-eating. It wins out interior the tip and while utilized consistently, delivers for lots greater advantageous effects. No guy is proper and history is resplendent of adult adult males who concept they might take short-cuts interior the call of a shopper-friendly sturdy purely to locate they created greater injustice and chaos.

    They both sincerely believe they're right.

    Democrats tend to be socialists (share the wealth) , Republicans tend to be capitalists (earn what you get).

    They both think that the other side is blinded by Party Loyalty and doesn't think for itself.

    the two party systenm is designed to keep us all squabbling between ourselves, there isn't a lick of difference between the parties as they exist today. check out a true conservative republican like Ron Paul and you will see what the media, and the corporations are afraid of, when we finally figure out what the whole fake left/right paradism is about.
