One of the two largest political parties in the United States, Democrats are generally left-wing, supporting social reform, government regulation of the private sector, and seperation of church and state. Democrats prefer to rely on common sense and understanding of other cultures rather than blind patriotism and xenophobia.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of the greatest democrats, known for his reform of fiscal policy towards americans in order to combat the great depression. John F Kennedy, despite having a questionable private life, was also a model democrat, averting nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis and paving the way for civil rights reform for african americans.
