I am a right wing Libertarian which is the Democratic Party. The democratic party was made back in 1792 to combat Republicans who supported Thomas Jefferson. At that time the Democratic party often referred to its own party as “The White man 's Party” because the Republicans at the time mostly lived in the South and favored slavery unlike Democrats.
As we all know people have different minds. Democrats believe to be equal and fair for all. In the other hand republicans believe that they should be more independant and have the governor not have take so much role in their lives. To begin with republicans and democrats have many things that are different. Even though they stand for different things they also have many similarities. They both go different ways but they do have many things that are common within.
The United States is known for its political system consisting of two parties: the Republicans and the Democrats. In this essay we will discuss the similarities and differences between these parties.
One of the most contriversal topics in the United States today is same-sex marriage. Same-sex couples all over country have been fighting for their right to be together since as early as the 1930's. The contrivery over this issue has been one of the biggest equality movements in U.S. history. When the law passed by the supreme court on June 26 of this year that all people, mo matter gender or sexual orientation had the right to marriage , it stirred and already boiling pot. So many people were furious, while so many others were overjoyed. When I heard that same-sex marriage had been legalized I was excited. My uncle finally had the right to settle down and nothing made him happier. I was glad that so many people that genuinely love eachother
Perry we see the issue regarding the major political issue of the legalization of same-sex marriages. While some individuals rebuke or chastise homosexuality, other individuals will embrace it as just another aspect of life a average norm to be. We must questions the reason for the early determination of same sex marriage constitutionality. When it comes down to it, our society is just making it illegal for people that live their lives differently from the majority of us. It is inequitable for our government to decide on whether or not homosexuals can be married. Everyone should be able to receive the same benefits and acceptance regardless of their sexuality so granting legal marriage rights under the law must extend to gays and lesbians to ensure that all citizens enjoy full human
In To Kill a Mockingbird, the author Harper Lee introduces a discussion of racial prejudice and justice, a controversial issue that was extremely important during the time the book was published (1960s). On one hand, the character Atticus Finch argued that people should not be discriminated because of skin color, while on the other hand, background characters contended that black people were genetically inferior to white people, and therefore should be set to a different standard. Today, racial tensions are still present, but a new wave of people are being discriminated against for their different sexualities and gender identities. When it comes to the topic of LGBT+ rights, most of us will readily agree that they should not be discriminated
Most of the issues debated today are the same as they always have been - same-sex marriage, adoption, LGBTQ+ people serving in the military, trans and non-binary people using bathrooms that match their gender rather than their sex, and whether or not discrimination against LGBTQ+ people should be legal. Most of the arguments against these things are based in religion. Some people believe marriage should remain “traditional” - between a man and a woman. They also believe that LGBTQ+ couples shouldn’t adopt, serve in the military, or have protections against
Political beliefs and party lines may be the most controversial topic across all of America. As the current Presidential debates and ensuing election draw near, most will make decisions, take sides, and debate across the supper table or in the local coffee shops. The American people will not be able to escape the debates since on most days some form of media is making their ideas and opinions known and open for discussion. Wendell Berry’s article, “Caught in the Middle,” is a select piece from his book Our Only World, which takes a look at his interpretation of politics in America as they currently stand. Controversial topics, such as abortion and homosexual marriages are discusses. He also points out differences between liberal and more conservative parties. Through these topics, he informs the reader of his opinions regarding problems in American politics; the equality of people governed and the divide amongst political parties.
Many quizzes can be found to decipher political identity like Pew Research Center’s Political Typology Quiz, PBS Newshour’s The Political Party Test, and the I Side With Presidential Candidates quiz found on isidewith.com. Some may have entered into the quizzes with their political identity already deciphered or with no idea what the result would be. However, some like I may have had an inclination towards one view, but not realizing just how much or little they fit into its category. The quizzes taken asked questions in which one’s answers were then taken and analyzed to place them in a certain political category. In most quizzes, once that political identity is deciphered it is explained and elaborated on so that the reader knows in detail
The Democratic Party is labeled as a “purple party” with Blue leaders, while the Republican Party is a Red Party with Red Leaders and only gets redder. This means that members of the Democratic Party lean less to the left than Republican members lean to the right. Members of the Republican Party are more “pure” in their views, while members of the Democratic Party are not as firm in their blue stances. Democratic leaders and members are more like to defect from their views than Republican leaders and members. Democratic-leading independents, for example, are more likely to vote Republican than pure Democrats. Part of the reason why Democrats do not perform as well in federal elections is because there are not enough voters to secure consistent electoral victory for Democrats, as compared to the Republican Party which has a more “pure” following.
Today, we live in a world where states are color-coded by political party. Red states represent the Republican Party, while blue states represents the Democratic Party and in some cases states are labeled purple because they swing back and forth between political parties. The ideology of Democrats, in our new political era is for the most part liberal, while the ideology of Republicans is conservative. The nature of ideologies has become more predictable because Democrats over the years have leaned more to the left while Republicans leaned more towards the right; however, this was not always the case. The Republican ideology has not always been conservative, but it use to also contain liberal perspectives while the Democratic ideology wasn't
Considering the political issues today same-sex marriage controversy serves to be significant as it has not been able to reach its height at the national level. As only 36 states out of 50 legally approve of same-sex marriage (Fausset and Blinder, The NewYork Times.com). Amending the Constitution for same-sex marriage serves to be a huge controversy and a difficult process due to many opinions present within the political and social circuit. Another reason many citizens do not support the idea of same-sex marriage is due to traditional social beliefs and morals. For example, many Americans oppose the idea of same-sex marriage on religious grounds. Also, due to conservative beliefs many citizens have called for constitutional amendments considering marital union only between a man and a woman as appropriate (Fausset and Blinder, The NewYork Times.com). Just as Brian S. Brown, the president of the National Organization of Marriage stated the following in a New York Times Article “The millions of people who voted that marriage is a union of a man and a woman are not simply going to throw their beliefs away. This fight will continue on regardless of which way the Supreme Court rules” (Fausset and Blinder, The NewYork Times.com). Brown implies the notion of strong beliefs and values serving as chains holding back the proposal of an amendment to the
Republicans and Democrats will have different ideas when it comes to climate change. The difference between Republican and Democrats pro-environmental voting was a minor difference until 1970s. After the Republicans took over the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994, the Democrats became more pro-environmental than the Republicans. The differences in people supporting protection of the environment has been moderate. For example, from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s, the Democrats support for higher spending for the protection of the environment is around ten percent which is higher than the Republicans (Dunlap&McCright, 2008, pg 27).
Sitting in his Sunday School class, David Lee, a senior at St. John’s High School, listened to the instructor talk about the public’s sentiment regarding gay marriage. “ Well, Michael [the instructor] said something like ‘As recently as 6 years ago, 60% of Americans were opposed to gay marriage’” recalled Lee, “and then he talked about how changing religious demographics has let to the tables being turned.”
While sexual orientation preference is a personal choice freely made by the individual, the state of marriage should remain between one man and one woman. If the Supreme Court is favor of arbitrarily transforming the institution of marriage, what is to stop marriages between polygamists, brothers and sisters, or adults and children in the near
