When I was growing up, my party of choice was the Democrats. I’m not ashamed to admit that at one point I voted for both parties but I think I finally made my choice. The Democratic party was founded in 1832 as a pro-slavery party by Andrew Jackson and his vice president, Martin Van Buren.
But, in addition to being a “party of slave owners”, the Democrats have also been the champion of civil rights throughout history. The Democrats were also instrumental in ending Jim Crow laws. But these days, many Americans feel that the Democrats are too radical and are in bed with the big corporations.
It’s sad to see how this is playing out in our society and it may not help the American people out much. Most of us believe that our political system is supposed to be representative of the whole country. And in many cases, it is.
However, there are times when a party’s name has been attached to a certain agenda that is not necessarily in line with what the general public wants. I know that I’m against some of the more radical policies that are being pushed by the Democrats right now and I don’t even agree with some of the social issues that they are pushing.
But it’s unfortunate that the Democrats are pushing things like gay marriage and abortion. The left wing has been very vocal about their opposition to these two. But if someone can make a living by going on television and talking about social issues on a daily basis, then that’s okay by me.
If you’re still undecided and need some guidance, I encourage you to take part in the political debate. Try to understand the candidates’ points of view so that you can make an informed decision. If you do that you will find that you’re not just deciding based on the party of your choice, but are actually making a decision based on which type of future you want to see.
Many American people want a better future and believe that the current system is not working. They think that the only way to change this is to start a political revolution.
If you want to be part of this revolution, I encourage you to think about joining a political party that is not affiliated with either one of the major parties. I also encourage you to read every book you can about how to change the system. and how to make it work for you.
It’s up to you to decide which party you think will do the best for the American people and not what party you want. and don’t want. You might find that the Democrats do better than the Republicans but that doesn’t mean they have to be your party of choice.
