Is this the real difference between Republicans and Democrats?

Republicans want to give those in need a hand up not a hand out and for you to be self reliant. Work for what you get and government only as a safety net. Democrats want the government to take care of you from cradle to grave. Free healthcare, free college, welfare for life, etc. Don't you get what you pay... show more Republicans want to give those in need a hand up not a hand out and for you to be self reliant.

Don't you get what you pay for? I have seen how bad the government health care system is and some want it for everyone? Visit a VA hospital before you vote and you will change your mind.

Please respond with civility.
Update: Better yet... Democrats want to give you a fish while Republicans want to teach you to fish.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for the day, teach him to fish and you feed him for life.
