Well here’s the thing.
Are the Republicans supporting euthanasia?
Are the Republicans supporting human trafficking?
Are the Republicans supporting new forms of slavery?
Are the Republicans actively savaging the lives of the poor —or are they in favour of instituting programs that DIFFER from those of the Democrats?
Is there categorical proof that the Democratic programs for ‘the destitute, abandoned, underprivileged etc are working and do work for the majority of people?.
Is there categorical proof that the Republican programs for the above do not work, have never worked for the majority of the people?
What you have here is a bullet point list where supposedly Democrats do better than Republicans. But I submit, where exactly is the proof of the claim?
Where is there proof that Democrat-led and run programs regarding the ‘equally sacred lives’ are leading to all those people being able to come out of poverty?
In fact, over the last 60 years or so we have seen huge segments of the population become hard-wired for poverty. And above all, we have seen millions and millions of dead children and now are seeing greater and greater numbers of euthanised seniors and ‘those whose ‘quality of life’ is not deemed worthy.
I do not think that Republican policies except with regard to their at least trying to limit abortions and euthanasia may in fact be better than Democrat but they most certainly do not appear to be worse.
We are facing an immigration crisis. I personally feel we need more immigrants in the US but, regardless of ‘feeling’, both ‘sides’ have flawed immigration policies to start with and both need to pretty much reject what they are offering and come up with something fair. You won’t see the Democrats trying to repair the current policy, they’ll just let things happen and be the first to scream outrage when something goes wrong. You won’t see the Republicans willing to repair the policy either; they will just stick on a one-size fits all and then scream outrage when something goes wrong. Whichever way the election goes, with regard to immigration you will need to have BIPARTISAN agreement to build from the ground up, and that means compromise, and an understanding that there’s at least 10-20 years where things will go from the current crisis down to a meaningful and fair conclusion. I hope we are at, or nearly at, the point where enough Republicans and Democrats can stop the invective and determine, together, to revamp the policy. IMO, that is the only really radical ‘difference’ in the parties outside of abortion/euthanasia. All the others are simply differences in view of HOW to deal with the problem of poverty.
