A Paradox, democrats are called 'liberal' meaning they do nothing in government and let everyone do as they please; while republicans are called 'conservative' meaning they control everything and restrict behaviors.
IN FACT, it is quite the REVERSE ! It is the conservatives who proselytize "government should do nothing and let everyone do as they please, whatever consequence" , and, it is the democrats who advocate "managing all aspects of society for the betterment of the Individual Citizens" and "regulate business and finance corporate activities to ensure Individual citizens/Citizens' rights are not trampled upon/violated".
What amazes me most is that the republicans and citizens who vote republican adamantly assert they want to protect their own money/property when in fact, they are quite happy to pay $2-Billion Per Week for Ten Years in Iraq when there were no WMD's, Saddam Hussein and sons were long captured/dead, and originally there were no Taleban/9-11-terrorists; they pay their taxes and get nothing for it but frivolous costly exploits.
Meanwhile, the democrats want healthcare servcies and protection of their finances in banks for their self-same taxes and are slammed as idiots by republicans/republican voters.
