Which perhaps is why I am not a Republican? Given the stated party platforms of the GOP and Dems are compared, however, and considering the philosophy and voting records of those they elect, I have to go with the GOP as the party as the least intrusive.
The GOP wants to intrude ideologically into the social fabric of our nation while preventing intrusion into the destructive business interests of the wealthy elite classes.
The GOP wants to intrude into our bedrooms, our personal finances , our schools and libraries, our personal relationships such as marriage, and religious institutions, etc.
I've never known a party more ideologically intrusive than the GOP except for the communist and fascist parties.
