Noone I ever met outside the United States gives a toss about the US.
Nice Grand-canyon (Big gorge), Yellowstone, Disneyland, etc.
What, outside of 'cheerleading' your way through 'screwing' vulnerable nations over - Do you bring to the table?

I'm not knocking you - I really don't care - But seeing as you guys think yourselves as Globalistically (New word) -attached - I'm curious as to why you self-attach (Prefer 'atatch) to 2 units of government?

What is the difference between 'Democrats' and 'Republicans', Please?
Is it like 'Shia/ite' and 'Sunni'?

The Republicans are now teabaggers.
The Democrats are the new Republicans.

@edgarblythe,
That explains nothing.
Allow me to condense.
1. What is a 'Republican'?
2. What is a 'Democrat'?

Please?

@mark noble,
The Republicans tend to be socially conservative and economically libertarian.

The Democrats tend to be socially and economically liberal, in the American sense of the word.

You could include that certain demographics vote Democratic due to paranoia about the demographic that is perceived as Republican (White Protestant American - often rural). Meaning, if ever a politician came along that would want to send ethnics back to somewhere, and disenfrancise them from their citizenship, the perception is that a Republican (White Protestant America) would be the demographic and party that the politician came from. I read this some time ago; not my own thinking. If you remember there was a proposal to to make the United States officially a Christian country. It never passed, but that kind of gratuitous disenfranchisement stays in the minds of many.

The author gave examples of Indian Americans (from India) and American Jews as successful demographics that should have become staunch Republicans, but the concern about one day being disenfranchised, since they are either neither white or Christian supposedly is why they remain predominanctly Democratic.

They are both corrupt and on the take. Democrats are much better at lying about it.

Republicans: Center Right

Democrats: Center or Center Left, depending on whether they want to try to win (Center Left loses elections in the US)

@oralloy,
Then - What does either/or represent, please?
'left/right' - What does that mean?

What 'prime-ideals' do either adopt in comparison to one another?

@Lash,
I am of the opinion that ALL 'elite-politicians' (In the field-of-view) are just snake-oil salesman - But what are the 'seperating' characteristics (policywise), please?

@mark noble,
Because of our decades of voting for the lesser of two evils, the parties are no longer separated by any characteristics.

The leading Democrat presidential candidate looks just like a Republican on paper, and the Republican Party seems to be in its death throes. I think it's clear that US politics is in the midst of a major evolution. I think the Libertarian and Green parties will emerge as stronger and some party is going to undergo significant growth as a result of Bernie Sanders' campaign.

@Lash,
OK - Cheers.
I am amid 'brexit' and, along with the UK - I think the entire western mindset is in dire need of a 're-shuffling'.

Democrats want to control your wallet.
Republicans want to control your sex life.

I Just posted a thread Titled 'Should I Unblock Leadfoot' - AND it was removed within 3 minutes.
Censorship is abundant here, I guess.
Shame you weren't as particular about Setanta - A2k.

Quick off the mark, though.
Ps - I screenshot everything.

Setanta is OK. He or she and I have crossed swords on occasion but basically he/she is fair.
