First off I would like to say there are issues occasionally agree with. Almost always however, I agree with the Democrats stance. I am not a tool for either party. Here are my reasons why I see Republican supporters and their issues in general as selfish. Most of the time, Republican "values" fall into two categories. 1) Fiscal conservatism: it's my money and you can't have it! I'm not sharing!!!! We all need to be each others keepers and look out for each other. Too many taxes are bad but we do need some. (some = a % where most republicans would say it would be alot) 2) Social conservatism! Gays are marrying! Abortion is bad (in all cases)! People are doing things that aren't harming me but grosses me out! Yuck! You can't do that!!!! This also applies to guns. This is my gun dont' take it from me! What if Britian invades!?!? Democrats, at the other end of the spectrum as always, tend to think the opposite. I think there's a reason why more well educated people tend to be Democrats and quote 'liberals'.
