Democratic Debate on Jan 17, 2016.

Democratic Debate | TheGhouseDiary.com

What a contrast it is with the Republican debates! It was a pleasure to hear the Democrats talk about keeping America great. This is one of the greatest nations on the earth for the values it stands and the values her majority supports. The Republicans on the other hand talk about making America great, but put her down every time they open their mouth.  

I have to ask my Republican friends, whose party was built on great principles, where are the mainstream representatives of the Republicans?  It is not what the guys like Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Carson and their likes say, it is the evil silence of the mainstream Republicans that bothers me… and after 30 years, I quit being a Republican for that very same reason.

The Democratic conversation is about uniting the country, where as the Republicans were about dividing the country.

The Democrats are about uplifting America, increasing the minimum wage, equal pay for equal work to men or women, and let Americans have their liberty and go after the pursuit of their happiness with liberty and justice for all. The Republicans are opposed to these values.

The Democrats were talking about integrated societies with fair treatment of the different components of the society – Blacks, Hispanic, Muslims and others.
The Democrats want to hold those police officers accountable who are racist or do not follow the law, whereas the Republicans want to back the blue blindly.

The Democrats believe in keeping America healthy, and the responsibility of the state, whereas the Republicans do not care. That is, if you leave it completely to private sector and market place to determine, we go back to the pre-civil rights era.  Not acceptable.

The Democrats understand the climate change and its terrible consequences, the Republicans refuse to accept that the carbon emissions had polluted our air, and we had to fix that, so we can breathe.

The Democrats see the global warming and want to fix it, whereas the Republicans deny it. Not because they are not aware of it, but because they are bought out by the fossil fuel producers and owners.

I like Fox TV much better to watch the debates and sports; they keep their screens clean and active. NBC’s background music during the breaks was annoying to the point of me making the point. Fox Manages breaks much better.

We have to bust the power of Wall Street and the rich guys who buy the Senators Congressmen and Presidential Candidates to do what is in their interest.  Our Democracy is at risk, if we do not have our representative represent us and instead represent the men who throw bones at them.

Democrats support normalization of relations with Iran, one less tension to have, but Republicans don’t want that because, once again not because they don’t understand, but because Netanyahu and his lobby has bought them out.

No more boots on grounds, war is evil, where as Republicans are too eager to go destroy others and in the process destroy America.

What is needed is for the Good Republicans to speak up, and let their goodness prevail over the pettiness of the entire crew of Presidential candidates.
