Democrats and Republicans Democrats: Bigger government (believe the people need the protection of the government and laws and need government to work properly) Government guides the people
Democrats and Republicans General viewpoints (although they vary by candidate, obviously): Stricter gun control Pro-choice (on abortion; it is always a woman's right to choose) Strong anti-discrimination laws Higher tax percentage for higher income More government programs to aid society Decrease military spending No death penalty
Democrats and Republicans Republican: Small government (legislations should be on a smaller level...your congress members and senators will probably try to get things on a state or local level rather than national level.) The People guide the government
Democrats and Republicans General viewpoints (although they vary by candidate, obviously): Opposes more gun legislation (citing constitutional rights) Pro-life (on abortion; that new life should only be taken if the mother's health/life are in danger or other more "justified" reasons) Anti-discrimination is something that should come though better education and individual conscience Lower taxes overall benefit the economy Less government programs, but more community programs Strong military is important For death penalty
