Just wondering....

The Republican party does not believe in a powerful federal government.....right? They want individual states to have the right to be able to decide what is best for them.

Why do they not want individuals to also have the right to decide what is best for them?

Not sure exactly what you mean. Both parties want to restrict individual freedom in some areas, and allow more freedom in others. They only differ on which areas.

A lot of times the only difference between the two parties are who's more apt to bribe them.

Both parties are controlled, with a few notable exceptions like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.

A better question would be: Why do otherwise "intelligent" people fall into this false dichotomy of thinking republicans are different than democrats?

where to start...

Just off the top of my head...

Democrats are KNOWN for wanting to grab guns, Clinton certainly wanted to.

Obama signed the patriot act reauthorization & FISA.

And if you want to get a little more abstract.. Obama has already spent more money than all US presidents combined, and that debt is secured by the income tax. Which means we have to work eternally to pay off the "bailouts", and the endless wars (that he promised he would end).

VA. Bob Mcdonnell

during the campaign he promised to focus on the economy and not get into social issues. then as soon as he was sworn in he turned into pat robertson.

this is the guy who wrote an essay on why women shouldn't be allowed to work.
