Reasons Democrats Are Better Than Republicans

This is a political list for mostly Democrats to vote on. In my opinion, the Democrats are better than the Republicans, and there are reasons for that. I want others to add more and vote on my existing reasons.

The Top Ten

1 Democrats Don't Try To Live In The Past

'Lincoln is the best president, he was a republican, so I guess me being a republican makes me a better person' - typical conservative.

I cringe at my past reactions to this list. I'm liberal, but now I realize this list has shallow reasoning. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Dang, this list has so many points I could debunk IF I wanted to. - Therandom

Democrats aren’t racist

2 Democrats Are Not Homophobic

Neither are republicans. We just don't like gay marriage(I actually don't care, has no effect on me, I wish we'd get over it) - Therandom

This is one of the reasons why I think democrats are better. - Pegasister12

Republicans: I'm not homophobic I just don't want them to have as many rights as I do

I'm a democrat and I hate gays

3 Democrats Support Greener Energy

Come on, I know we have gas prices as low as less than $3, but we shouldn't forget that we will eventually have to resort to other renewable energy resources once we run out of nonrenewable energy resources such as oil and coal. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Republican here, I agree with Green energy. All that Fossil fuel Co2 is damaging the planet beyond belief. As the guy below me said, Nuclear Energy is the future. It even cleans up Co2 and it provides a lot of energy at a relative minor cost in comparison to the amount of energy created. - KimJongFun

Nuclear fusion (plasma energy) is our future... but the greedy republicans they only want to hurt our planet with dirty energies...

4 Democrats Support Education Funding Over Military Funding

First of all our military is good enough. Our education is not. We are spending billions on our military which is already extremely powerful, & not enough on our education. No wonder other countries are calling us stupid. But instead of funding more important things, President Cheeto decides he wants to spend more money on our overpowered military, while calling our allies' leader's names & ruining relations with them. Nice going Trump.

No they don't really compare the last 2 presidents Donald Trump and Obama both different parties. And, Donald Trump funded more than Obama ever could. - tacoperson

First off we have the most powerful military so cutting funding is not a big deal

I agree with this by a landslide - MrVing989

5 Democrats Acknowledge The Separation of Church and State

One of the most important parts of the Constitution.

And where exactly is this mandate specified?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" - RecklessGreed

6 Democrats Support Equal Pay For Women

I'm a democrat, but the wage gap is a myth. Most democrats don't know this. - Caleb9000

The gender pay gap exists, but not because if sextet reasons. It's because women typically work lower paying jobs that offer more benefits and job security. - Alpha101

Shut the hell up with this crap! Most of the time women today think they should earn money by coming into work without doing anything! - tacoperson

Seriously? The gender pay gap is not a myth. Women working in the same jobs actually get paid less, and in some fields it is worse than in others. - allamassal

7 Democrats Support Minimum Wage Increase

Which will destroy the economy.

You do know you might lose your job as business owners will do anything not to get into debt, even if it means firing people? - KimJongFun

I think the giant companies can afford to pay a couple dollars more to workers and because they have more money they will spend more retard which will help the economy

Which'll cause the taxes to raise, and companies to go out of buissiness, or just put the U.S in more debt than its already in

8 Democrats Know Military Action Should Be The Last Resort, Not The First

Unlike Donald Trump, who will destroy America if he resorts to military action first. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Then what should be first? Oh pleading to the other people that they shouldn't hurt us? Yea military action comes first dumbass. - tacoperson

Um America needs protection what if ISIS were bombing us?

ModernSpongeBobSucks you are quite a dimwit. If military action is the last resort, then we will all be obliterated by then.

Yes we would be obliterated after we successfully negotiated with our enemies... - ARandomPerson

9 Democrats Don't Just Target The Upper Class


10 Democrats Support Stricter Gun Control

There is absolutely no reason guns even need to be sold to the common people. I understand that people are afraid of tyranny, but that has never happened (in this country) and probably never will. In addition, stricter gun laws would prevent people from selling guns as easily, and putting a fine on gun ownership, monthly, if we could not stop manufacturing would make it less desirable to have one.

"Liberals aren't that bright." Is that why they believe climate change is real, while conservatives plug their ears so they don't have to deal with the truth?

I'm pretty sure the founding fathers didn't want people to have an easy way to shoot and kill people for their own bigotry. - pandagirl

Ever notice that strict gun laws lead to more gun deaths...almost like it's not a gun problem but a person problem...almost like a person needs to fire the gun in order to kill people...and that evil people will always try to break the law no matter what the law is...democratic idiots

The Contenders

11 Democrats Believe Healthcare Is A Right

To republicans it isn't even though dozens of countries have free healthcare

Heck yeah

12 Democrats Acknowledge that They're Immature.

Yes, at least they have devoted all their brainpower towards admitting immuriturity, No republican has done this becuase they aren't immature.

13 Most Democrats Support Net Neutrality
14 Democrats are Not Racist

Oh really? Because I'm pretty sure the democrats founded the KKK and support slavery - DoroExploro13

That's funny. The Democrats back then were conservative, just like today's Republicans. - Alpha101

What a dumb god damn reason. What did the republican say to you? The word black? Really democrats are way to emotional and stupid. It's all about their feelings. - tacoperson

Um the KKK endorsed trump and 36% of trump suporters still want slavery

@DoroExploro13 around the time teddy Roosevelt became president, the titles "democrat" and "republican" switched meanings. This means anyone before that time who was a republican (like Lincoln) would now be considered a democrat, and vice versa.

15 Democrats Don't Vote for Donald Trump

My dad is a democrat and he voted for Trump.

If you're a Democrat, you most likely won't vote for a Republican, and vice versa. - wrests

16 Democrats Have Common Sense

Seriously? I honestly think neither do.

17 Democrats Treat All Lives Equally
18 Democrats Don't Get Mad Over Little Things Like a Gay Character in a Disney Movie

My jaw almost broke when I saw this. Who's the one who says "Donald Trump shouldn't be president because he's a meanie." - og214

Well, who is president is MUCH more significant than something in a movie, so... - allamassal

Okay this reason is stupid. But there is a reason why people get mad cause of character in Disney movies...cause they shouldn't. - tacoperson

19 Democrats Don't Wave Around Their Hands

This one's stupid. You have to be kidding.

20 Democrats Care About Poor People
21 Democrats Support Voting Rights

I support voting rights and I'm a republican. - tacoperson

This one is a good one

22 Democrats Do Not Subscribe to Idiotic Conspiracy Theories Like Pizzagate

Yet you think Donald Trump pissed on the Presidents hotel bed? Hypocrites. - KimJongFun


...and then shoot up a pizza parlor like a methhead

23 Democrats Believe in Natural Rights
24 The Economy Has Performed Better Under Democratic Presidents
25 Democrats Believe In Climate Change


26 Democrats Don't Watch Fox News

At least, they get their news from multiple sources.

27 Democrats Care About the Environment

Liberals are very caring about the environment! Compared to the conservative party, they like to abuse everything they got.

28 Ajit Pai is a Republican
29 Democrats Believe that Everyone is Equal
30 Democrats See America as It is Today
31 They are Not Hypocritical About "Political Correctness."

I mean, seriously, Republicans love to whine about PC culture, yet they seem to be thin-skinned.

Many of them were outraged that a Canadian Donald Trump was "raped" in a South Park episode, as indicated in the Daily Mail comments, saying that South Park is part of the "liberal media." (Last I checked, the creators of South Park were Libertarians, and they make fun of everyone.)

Also, they actually believe that "white culture" is under attack. Whatever that means. At least halal is healthier than McDonald's and KFC.

Or how about that time when they are up in arms, when they are called, wait for it, "deplorable."

32 They Give Citizenship to Immigrants.
33 Republicans Put Corporations Over People
34 Democrats Accept Immigrants and Refugees
