I see a lot of people who believe strongly in the values of their party, whichever side you are on.
There are good parts to each side, and they are supposed to counter balance each other.
That was the idea, anyways.
Here is the rub.
If you believe strongly in your party, you should be the first to point out the flaws.
The problems with your own party should be more important to you that the problems of the opposing party.
If you are not willing to stand up and say, this is my party, and this is wrong; then you are not standing up for the true meaning of democracy!
If you truly believe that your party is or can be the best party, then you can't defend a cancerous growth by pointing out that the opposing party
also has a cancerous growth!
If you love your country, then you have to demand your own party be better... you have to make them be better...
You have to become furious when your own party does something you don't agree with, that is the only way to make things better.
These parties represent real people, hard working mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, the people deserve the best.
