The Democratic Party philosophy is to buy votes by promising people gov't handouts....plain and simple.
How is this possible when the "blue" states are more educated and take less handouts than the red states? They keep buying votes with promises to red state people that won't even vote for them in the first place? It's pretty obvious that republicans take more handouts than anyone in the USA, going by the "red" state evidence. Democrats might fight harder for things like welfare, but ironically it is usually for people that are voting republican in the southern states. So you admit that, in your mind, democrats vote for handouts, but yet a huge chunk of republican voter base are the ones actually USING them? Wouldn't a good chunk of voters in BOTH parties be at fault, can you admit that? And if republican voters keep voting for people that hate programs they use fully, wouldn't THEY technically be MUCH dumber than democrat voters, since they are voting against people that want to help them? So for the evidence presented: A) Republicans are way more uneducated than democrats, going by red state/blue state statistics, and B ) Republicans consistently vote AGAINST politicians that are pushing programs that directly HELP the majority of their voter base? Going by these two pieces of evidence, clearly, republicans are way more ignorant and dumb than the democratic party, as a whole.
But I'll say that yeah, the democratic party probably does sale promises, but can YOU admit that the republican party buys votes using fear, chain letters, attack ads, their voter base's lack of intelligence, and continually lying to their voter base that they give a damn about them when in seriousness if they aren't in the top 10% of wealthy people in the USA they really don't?
It's time to start pointing fingers at both of these parties.
