I hardly know where to begin!! First, you cite a website known for racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic rantings. I agree with you partially that the Dems accept money from many of the same folks that the GOP does. However, so far, the Dems have not ginned up false "grass roots" groups like the Tea Parties, who are themselves racist, and generally anti-intellectual. My own personal reason for supporting the Dems and the President, are that they support me--if the republicans get their way, they will destroy Medicare, which is currently keeping me alive. They will also destroy social security, which I contributed to for 35 years, and now find as my major means of support while I am on disability for chronic kidney disease. Of course, these programs are not perfect, but they are necessary. How can you support the steady pillaging of the middle class to support tax cuts for the obscenely wealthy?? There are so many differences between the Dems and the GOP, that this forum is inadequate to discuss them all. I think the one difference which will really be the undoing of the USA is the Right's leaning towards theocracy and away from science: deny global warming because god said he wouldn't destroy he earth that way; deny many scientific advances because they disagree with the "Bible". Finally, Obama could never even be close to matching RMoney's flip flops. For reproductive freedom, then against it, for gay rights, then against it, for universal healthcare, then against it. Not to mention that he can't figure out whether he is for equal pat for women, or for the president's immigration order, until his handlers and keepers in the party, along with polls, tell him what to say. Why, also, does he say nothing about his failed governorship in Massachusetts? I'd rather have a successful Harvard professor and community organizer as prez, than a failed governor and repeated failure at running for different offices. I guess we'll all have an answer in November.
