Why isthe Democratic party against economic growth and balanced budgets?

I'm 14, and I'm concerned about the country's direction. We're in trouble economically and we have a deficit crisis. Yet the Democrats' policies are completely against the principles America stands for: limited government, free enterprise, and personal responsibility. Their policies make it harder for people to create jobs.

-The Democrats support raising taxes on "the rich" and "greedy corporations", yet the rich are the ones that create our jobs! And raising taxes on business means less money can be used to create jobs. They also want to raise spending ad infinitum, which increases the national debt. This creates a huge cloud of uncertainty in the business community about if their taxes will go up. We already have the highest corporate tax rate in the world and businesses are in mass exodus to countries with fairer tax codes.

-The Democrats support more job-killing regulations of industries.. For example, if an onion farmer drops a few of his onions on the very same soil it's grown on, those onions can't be brought to market. This raises food prices, which in turn, means less economic growth.

-The Democrats support increasing the minimum wage. This sounds like good policy, but it means companies can hire less employees. It's unfair to poor people because it decreases the amount of unskilled labor a company can hire. Also, it drives up the cost of products, discouraging consumption, which is very bad for the economy.

-The Democrats refuse to allow drilling offshore and on the ground. They won't let us open nuclear power plants or mine for coal. All of this because of the population of some rare species of caribou or environmental extremist reasons like that. Come on! This makes us more dependent on oil from overseas, and it increases the cost of energy. This severely shrinks our economy and it creates pain for families. Gas is at $4/gallon, and Obama's solution is to tax the oil companies more! Outrageous! Real scientists, like the co-founder of the Weather Channel, know that global warming is a myth!

-The Democrats oppose the Connie Mac plan which cuts government spending 1 measly percent a year! They're so opposed to cutting any spending whatsoever and they were able to whine enough to get John Boehner to sign onto a deal that had lots of "future" spending cuts and a lot less in real cuts.

-The Democrats support "right-to-work" legislation forcing people to join a Union. This makes the US less business-friendly. And the Obama administration wouldn't let Boeing move its factory to South Carolina because South Carolina was a right-to-work state! Prohibiting a company from doing business and creating jobs when families are struggling? What kind of "change" is that?

-As I pointed out earlier, Democrats support increasing taxes which winds up decreasing government revenue. When you take a greater percentage out of the private economy, you have a smaller economy and less growth. This hurts the amount of revenue government takes in.

-Democrats have opposed every real plan to reduce the deficit, including the Connie Mac plan(mentioned earlier), Cut Cap and Balance, and the Republican Study Commission Plan. They are the party of no solutions, blank checks, and smoke-and-mirrors budgeting.

All in all, Democrats are a conglomerate of liberal activists, freak-environmentalists, atheist progressive vegans, union thugs, and socialists.

Please tell me Democrats, why do you oppose cutting government spending and promoting economic growth? Balanced budgets and lower taxes are basic principles that made this country strong. Socialism has always failed. Entrepreneurship is what will save us from the recession, not more government spending. You are jeopardizing my country's future by leaving us a mountain of debt(crisis started in 2006 when the Dems took over Congress) and a weak economy. Why?


I do remember 9/11, and it is one of the many reasons I became a conservative. I know that evil exists in the world and that terrorists hate us for our freedom. We need to stand up to them and be corageous and strong. We're not Portugal or Chile, we are the United States. We need to have an assertive foreign policy that is not soft like the liberals want it to be.

Update 2:

    Democrats and Republicans are the same.

    The Central Government, run by bureaucratic servants called Democrats and Republicans, know that there is a 11% approval rate of the government by the US citizens. This is unacceptable to the Dems and Reps. They need away to show there power. So creating a fear atmosphere, will get the citizens attention. This will also let them portray the illusion they are doing something for the citizens that cannot be done without the government. I't is a forced recognition of power in all its tyranny.

    One of the rules of war when facing a stronger enemy is to divide and conquer, rather then to attack your enemies force as a whole. Knowing that citizens and there constitutional freedoms/rights are a thee governments greatest enemy, creating a diversionary tactic such as Republican and Democrat would divide the governments enemies "citizens + constitutional freedoms/rights" Once divided, the enemy is far easier to conquer. In this case, when we are divided, the Central Government can take away freedoms/rights, and implement tyrannous laws a lot easier than if we were united.

    Vote for ANYONE else besides Democrats or Republicans. I't can be anyone ranging from a third party candidate to Mickey Mouse. Just don't vote for Democrats or Republicans. They were bought and paid for a long time ago by bureaucrats. When Dems or Reps are elected, they serve the interests of the transnational corporations that paid for them to get elected, not the citizens. I't is the greatest acting out of a "good cop bad cop" scenario in history. Just remember. The Tea Party is the Republican Party.

    "I'f your a multi-billion dollar transnational corporation and you pay for only, 1 President + 435 Congressmen + 100 Senators + 9 Supreme Court Justices, then you have complete and total power over 350,000,000+ citizens and all there resources." WTF!!!

    Because the Democrats want to keep spending money we do not have and think that the spending will be justified by raising taxes. Fact we bring in only 1.5 trillion in revenue and spend double that of 3 trillion. So technically by 2016 the debt of the US would be 20 trillion dollars. And the people on here think the Tea Party is crazy for being concerned about this massive debt, wow, you people need to realize that kicking the can down the road does not solve nor fix the problem. Fix it now, quit being lazy

    well, at are clearly too young to remember the Reign of Error of George W.Bush.

    The man who went looking for Osama in Iraq, and blamed 9-11 on Saddam Hussein.

    So I guess you were only 4 when that happened. I remember the day vividly, and all the lies Bush told , that followed. My suggestion would be to stay in school, and keep studying history and politics, and be careful which horse you back, without a fully thought out analysis of which party has done this country more harm than good.

    I think you are confusing extremism and fundamentalism. The word fundamentalism has earned a negative connotation, but was simply intended as a response to religious liberalism. An extremist would be somebody that shoots an abortionist in the name of life, a fundamentalist is someone who insists on doing Christianity the way the scriptures say.

    Well, if the debt ceiling bill just produced is put into service, there goes 700,000 more jobs, according to the economists. But, hey, blame Obama, even though it is primarily a Republican bill. The Democrats don't want this, but the deadline is fast approaching, to they'll have to cave. So welcome to the next recession, courtesy of your friendly Republicans.

    To answer you question, no and no.

    You are young enough to need to develop a useful mind. Take all of your list opinions and find the case against them. You will find there is at least a good case to be made against all of your opinions as for them. You should broaden your views because you are not correct in most of what you have said.

    Wow, you're a 14 yr old savant! I am renouncing my membership in the Democratic party and joining the Republicants. Thank you for helping me see the light, oh wise one.

    You are horribly informed. Stay in school and get an education. Your argument is just a bunch of fox news talking points. Get a life. You don't understand the real world of politics. The Republicans don't care about your future or education they care about campaign contributions. You are BRAINWASHED!
