Party Differences

This quote goes along nicely with my previous post.

"The Republican Party is the party of nostalgia. It seeks to return America to a simpler, more innocent and moral past that never actually existed. The Democrats are Utopians. They seek to create an America so fair and non-judgmental that life becomes and unbearable series of apologies. Together the two parties function like giant down comforters, allowing the candidate to disappear into the enveloping softness, protecting them from exposure to the harsh weather of independent thought."
