One of two major political parties in the United States, often characterized by hypocrisy, hyperbole, and confrontation without offers of resolution.
Tend to believe in the value a federalist government which:
(1) controls and redistributes the product of it's citizens labor to the lazy and purposefully indigent, justified by the principal that a small percentage of those people are truly incapable of increasing their quality of life while failing to acknowledge that the majority achieve their lot by choice;
(2) Controls, surveils, and dictates morality to the citizens of the 50 independent states comprising the Union (see: reauthorization of the Patriot Act);
(3) Assumes (incorrectly) all American citizens are evil and dispassionate by nature and therefore require a government to enforce a means of charity through excessive taxation, including one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.
(4) Believes that failing public schools should be given more money so they can pay higher salaries to underperforming teachers while begrudging a parent who wants to send their kid to a better school so they may learn something other than the proper vein to use when shooting heroin.
(5) Cries for the end of prolonged conflict in distressed Muslim countries, unless they (democrats) start the war themselves.
Chad sees a panhandler:
If Chad is a rational human being - "we should create a solid base for employment in this region and then offer incentivized assistance for the panhandler to educate and prepare for meaningful work in one of these jobs, provided he displays commitment and work ethic, thereby providing for a citizen and increasing contributions to our society."
If Chad is a Democrat - "we should provide Chad with food and shelter to comfort him in between his pan-handling hours, and create a system where you supplement his income through assistance paychecks that he in no way earns, but which will make me feel good about myself, even if I didn't do anything but force you to do stuff."
