About Both Parties Are NOT the Same!

Welcome to "Both Parties Are NOT the Same!"

As these endless Republican debates have gone on and on, I have been increasingly disturbed with what I see from these candidates and with what I see from the Republican crowds watching these debates.

I have been equally frustrated by many people, many from the progressive uber-left, many supporting someone like Ron Paul or a third party candidate, some from the Occupy movements, that are adamant that "Both parties are the same".  Look, I know that the Democrats and Obama are not perfect (Did anyone expect them to be perfect?), but I know in my heart that they are NOT THE SAME as these, racist, homophobic, anti-woman, and anti-human people who populate the Republican party in the year 2012.

What about a Third Party?

I firmly believe that a vote for any third party candidate this year is a vote for the Republicans.  I furthermore believe that staying home because someone believes that "There is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans; they are both tools of Wall Street" is the same as voting for one of these race-baiting, despicable Republicans. 

I intend to include two major types of articles in this blog:
  1. Information, articles, comments that really highlight the difference between the current crop of Republicans and the Democrats.
  2. Information, articles, comments that answer some of the complaints from the uber-left, disgruntled Progressives, Ron Paul supporters, and various Third Party supporters that "both parties are the same; both parties are supported by corporations", etc. 
Though I am a fierce advocate of getting money out of politics, overturning Citizen's United, and putting strong caps on lobbying, particularly on behalf of corporations, I do not feel that both parties are the same, that Obama is just a tool of Goldman-Sachs, and I'm tired of reading such rhetoric as the "Bush/Obama perma war machine."

I will say that Ron Paul is fair game on this blog.  I contend that the poor quality of education in this country has led the way to many young people completely missing Paul's racist and sexist character and somehow seeing him as a hero. 

Unlike my Molly's Middle America blog, which highlights jobs, employment numbers and trends, and other political commentary, this blog will not feature as much original writing and research.  I expect that it will mostly include links to other information, paragraphs, "blurbs" and comments from Facebook and other places that are relevant to the topic of the blog. I intend to organize all of this information for easy reference.

I welcome all comments and any emails, particularly those with articles or sources.  I will not delete comments with opposing viewpoints unless they involve name-calling, abuse, lies, or repeated inane statements.  Those will go.
