Party for ignorant, college-age intellectual wannabes. Live life in perpetual outrage, make outrageous claims about social injustices and are religious about environmental issues (will keep the faith even when the facts don't support the issue--read "Ethanol" fuel additives; global warming science, tax increases on high-income earners; also believe Republicans are statistically less educated than Democrats). Think all opposition to Liberal policies is motivated by sexist, racist, bigoted homophobia (which is abject bigotry). Assume the poor and minorities are unable to fend for themselves so they steal from high-income earners (in the form of taxation, which high-income earners subvert via tax loopholes so the revenues end up getting redirected to middle-class income earners) and redistribute it to the poor, who become socialized to depend on it. Often whine about FOX News, when Liberals control virtually all media (print, television, Hollywood, the Arts). Are dogmatic in their intolerance of opposing viewpoints and will label dissenters as sexist/racist/bigoted/homophobic so as to avoid real debate. Older Democrats are the most pathetic as they are well aware of all the above but still vote Democrat anyway just to protest.
Democrat: Can you believe Republicans signed the Patriot Act?
Republican: You mean the Patriot Act that president Obama renewed last month?
Democrat: You're a racist!
