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 Are Not Homophobic

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

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

Dear Democrats you need to realize that you’re party also have some racist,sexist, and homophobics the quicker you realize this the better - RawIsgore

2 Democrats Don't Try To Live In The Past

Exactly. We move towards the future and we consider it as well. We've abandoned old, tired, and bigoted beliefs of homophobia and racism that Republicans have so frequently adopted. We care for the future generations with our support of green energy and education, but also the elderly with retirment security. We're creating a safe country for women who are unable to proceed with their pregnancies, and we are dominant amongst the most financially successful states!

Blindly changing without any knowledge of history is only foolish. Especially when the change does not improve the situation. Simple common sense needs to be possessed.

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

This list is so inaccurate

3 Democrats Acknowledge The Separation of Church and State

The United States is supposed to be a country with religious freedom not a country with only Christianity.

One of the most important parts of the Constitution.

Well, to you Commies that means everyone is atheist

Too bad, athiests

4 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

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

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

5 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'm a Libertarian and I think both Republicans and Democrats are annoying but honestly this reason is one reason why Democrats are better.-DarkBoi-X

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

This is one of the reasons why I’m thinking about voting for republican but for now I’m still independent - RawIsgore

8 Democrats Believe Healthcare Is A Right

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

Heck yeah

9 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?

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

Only thing on here I agree with, guns are a big problem in America, there are other things than guns you can use for self-defense - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Democrats are Not Racist

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

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

@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.

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

12 Democrats Accept Immigrants and Refugees

Because you support Donald Trump who wanted to build a wall like the Wall of Berlin.

So do Republicans. We just don’t support illegal immigration (keyword: illegal).

13 Democrats Don't Just Target The Upper Class


14 Democrats Acknowledge that They're Immature.

Do they though? - CartoonistKing

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

Really? Because I don’t know a single one that actually does. - 3DG20

15 Democrats Believe In Climate Change

Science has already proved that climate change exists

17 Most Democrats Support Net Neutrality

Many republicans support Net Neutrality too. This issue isn't left or right. It affects everyone regardless of political ideology.

18 Democrats Care About Poor People
19 Democrats Believe that Everyone is Equal

No, Democrats believe that they’re better than everyone else all because they follow a stupid political party. - 3DG20

Seriously? I honestly think neither do.

No they don’t. - 3DG20

21 Democrats Treat All Lives Equally

No they don’t. - 3DG20

22 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

But they do vote for Hillary Clinton and treat her like a goddess, probably only because she’s a woman, so what’s your point? - 3DG20

23 The Economy Has Performed Better Under Democratic Presidents

Umm... the economy under the Trump administration has been the best it's ever been. However, the economy was terrible under the obama administration - CartoonistKing

24 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

But they do get mad when someone disagrees with them. - 3DG20

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

25 Democrats Care About the Environment

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

26 Democrats Don't Wave Around Their Hands

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

27 Democrats Don't Watch Fox News

At least, they get their news from multiple sources.

I watch FOX, CNN, and MSNBC.
The people with the most accurate political opinions watch all, getting their sources from them all.

I bet republicans watch ONLY FOX news. - Solacress

28 Democrats Don't Believe in Trickle Down Economics
29 Democrats Support Voting Rights

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

Well, as long as the votes are going to their greedy asses anyway. - 3DG20

This one is a good one

30 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

31 Ajit Pai is a Republican

Yeah, one Republican out of the millions. Let’s see who the Democratic party has. Hillary Clinton? Kim Kardashian? Justin Bieber? Hillary Duff? - 3DG20

32 The Democratic Party is the More Diverse of the Two Main Parties

Isn't that racist to say that just because a party has more races it is better?

33 Republicans Love George W. Bush

Democrats love Hillary Clinton. - 3DG20

34 They Give Citizenship to Immigrants.
35 Republicans Hate Atheists More Than Democrats

Anti-athiest is unconstitutional, freedom of religion includes atheists

36 They Write Immature Top Ten Lists.
37 Republicans Supported the Iraq War
38 Democrats See America as It is Today
39 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."

They’re hypocritical about pretty much everything else though, so does that really matter? - 3DG20

40 Republicans Put Corporations Over People
41 Democrats Don't Believe They are Still Living in the Wild Wild West Era America - The Country of Guns
42 They Care More About the Welfare of the People
