Difference Between Democrats and Republicans [VIDEO]

Someone recently asked me about what the real difference between a Democrat and Republican really is. I was shocked that someone didn’t know, but then realized that many Americans just rely on the mainstream media to explain everything to them, so I did my best to explain the differences to her.

Here are a several great explanations of what Democrats are really like:

First, here is a song written by Bryan Lewis, titled I Think My Dog’s A Democrat:

Well, I think my dog’s a democrat

And it breaks my heart

To have to say

An ugly thing like that

But there’s a big old pile of evidence

That all points toward the facts

My dog might be a democrat


I pay for all his health care

And I buy everything he eats

I provide him with a place to live

Just to keep him off the streets

But he just acts like he’s entitled

Even tried to unionize the cat

Yeah, I think my dog’s a democrat


He chewed up the Constitution

That I keep on display

And every time Benghazi’s on TV

He looks the other way

(“What difference, at this point, does it make”)

I know he’s a liberal

Even if he won’t admit it

He pooped on my living room rug

And tried to tell me George Bush did it


He ain’t got no papers

And what really gets my goat

Is if he could find to write it down

Well, I know they’d let him vote

Sure we’ve had some good times

He’s been fun to have around

But if he ever barks

About my right to bear arms

I’m gonna have to have him put down


I pay for all his health care

And I buy everything he eats

I provide him with a place to live

Just to keep him off the streets

You’d have to be a Socialist

To ever act like that

So my dog must be a democrat


His behavior has been hidden

His mom might be Mrs. Clinton

Yeah, I think my dog’s a



Flea-bitten democrat

Second explanation comes from one of those emails we all get that are humorous but contain so much truth:

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up.

She said she wanted to be President someday. Both of her parents, Democratic Party members, were standing there so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?”

She replied.. “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people.” Her parents beamed with pride!

Wow… what a worthy goal!” I said . .

“But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!”

“What do you mean?” she replied   .

So I told her, “You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.”

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?”

I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”

Her parents aren’t speaking to me anymore.

Third, just take a look at what is happening in Venezuela where socialists (here in America they are called Democrats) have caused runaway inflation, widespread corruption, super high taxes and the suppression of the people and loss of most of their freedoms. They have such a wonderful national healthcare system that many pregnant women cross the border into Columbia to have the babies.

This is what Democrats want to do to America. They want to remove the tax cuts that will cost millions of Americans their jobs. They want to provide free Medicare for everyone, but it will cost taxpayers at least $3 trillion a year in increased taxes. Considering there are about 141.2 million people who pay taxes, that comes to an ADDITIONAL $21,246 in taxes per taxpayer a year. What’s free about that?

Some Democrats also want to provide free college tuition to everyone, but who will pay the costs for  that?

Democrats are socialists and socialism thrives on making the people the slaves of the federal government.

Republicans want to protect our freedoms and rights. They want to keep people working and be self-sufficient and not dependent on the government. Republicans support the Constitution and the defense of our country, including protecting our borders.

The political differences between Republicans and Democrats are like the difference between light and dark. Compromise is grey and grey is not light.
