The U.S. Democratic Party is one of two big political parties in the United States
Dont you just love the writers of wikipedia i was sitting here reading these to pages and well i just had to make a thread about it.
The Democratic party is the largest party in this country with over 72 million like minded individuals.
so i am going to share my thoughts on wikipedia "philosophy and role of government"
so here we go with the talking points and my own comments
Many support a progressive income tax (a sliding scale based upon income level)
they sure do keep nickle and diming everyone but themselves
Many support ending tax loopholes that let corporations hide profits overseas as well as providing tax cuts to small businesses and expanding lending
so that businesses can create new jobs

Many support reproductive rights for women
yes they do aww they really care about women and people who murder their unborn children and go war is evil

yep make the government responsible for state and local issues for the life of me i do not understand why people push that nonesense from other people

Many support equal rights for all citizens without regard to race, creed, gender or sexual orientation. (the belief that all people are created equal,
being endowed with certain unalienable rights)

Many support federal moderation of the economy through raising and lowering of interest rates along with government stimulus at times of steep
the people who brought us the federal reserver and created the consumer protection agency has done such a bang up job since 1913.
Many believe in responsibility towards the environment and sustainable living (Government investing in a clean-energy economy, and providing tax
credits to spark U.S. manufacturing of windmills, solar panels, and electric cars)
good job and put millions out of work and destroy trillion dollar industries that will take trillions and decades to replace.
Many believe that basic health care should be accessible to all citizens and that affordable health insurance plans should be available and owned by
hmmm i own insurance now have since i picked up my first job and have for decades or by affordable health insurance taxing and stealing others to make
Many believe that the economy regulations should be in place to balance the needs of business and the individual.
