Coming from South Africa, I've never quite understood the US dual main party system. They say the Republicans are towards the "right", but they want very little government intervention in people's lives - to me that sounds very liberal left, and I suppose a lot of hippies and such would agree. So why must people vote Democrat to get less state intervention concerning what they put into their own bodies, like medical marijuana?
I really don't want to encourage partisan politics or any such issue. But why do Americans rather pay for conservative Republican wars, but they are anti-health-care reform?
