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

That's a stereotype. There are homophobic people of all beliefs and in all political parties. I've seen homophobic democrats might I add, so this argument is already flawed.

So what if its against moral values. I'm a Republican Trumper and I personally don't see why Old Bush Republicans care so much about Gay marriage. I mean Republicans care more about whether or not 2 gays can get married then they do about working class single mothers being able to afford food for their kids! P.S. don't bring up moral values, you old Bush Repubs support the death penalty and P.S.S. don't bring up the Bible either because Jesus never once talked about Homosexuality and you guys don't support stoning people who wore clothes with two different types of linen.

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

I've never heard anyone say something like that. There's a difference between tolerating homosexuality and being against it, which you clearly don't understand.

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)

2 Democrats Don't Try To Live In The Past

Liberals are not all bible bashers, don't believe we are still living in the Wild Wild West era, not like early liberals, know that homosexuality, lesbians, bisexuality is just romance just like heterosexuality, are fine with transgenders the embryo is female. Feminism is not we hate men its gender equality. Its wrong to lock kids in cages. Now republicans go and talk about how much you love George W Bush because he was a republican president remember?

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!

Jesus Christ I 100% wish they would do this! Especially when it comes down to their religion! I have nothing wrong with believing in a religion as long as that religion DOES NOT FORCE everyone on this planet to reverse back into the Dark Ages! NOR does anyone of that religion wish/want anyone else down into Hell for not being just like them NOR kill the followers of a religion whom don’t like that religion or is just of another religion! Manly Christians and Muslims and Catholics...I’m watching you guys!

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.

Old values are good values, until they are not. Then we should throw them away.

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.

Republicans never said otherwise. Republicans believe in free speech.

One of the most important parts of the Constitution.

Pretty funny considering that Republicans are supposedly the ones trying to protect the Constitution.

Well, to you Commies that means everyone is atheist

Same goes for Republicans, yet another bad argument.

4 Democrats Support Greener Energy

Okay this is Easily one of the only reasons to go Democrat however with newer more reasonable studies coming about I believe most Republicans are on the eco clean train as of late.

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.

Agreed. Global Warming is very real, but many republicans think it's just another scam created by the "evil" liberals in order to make money and spread lies.

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.

5 Democrats Believe Healthcare Is A Right

Most people end up paying less in the long run with Universal Health Care. Republicans just don't like it because "they aren't sick right now," but eventually they will need it.

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

Ya illegals can get it for free but war vets can't?

Even though it isn't a right

6 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.

So liberals are practically saying make our line of defense weak, and make it possible for terrorists to take over? Damn, liberals ARE stupid.

Oh, and that's coming from a person who hates political matters.

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

7 Democrats Support Equal Pay For Women

The "pay gap" between men and women is a lie, do your research. How anyone can believe this lie with all the information that is available to us via the internet is mind-boggling. Don't listen to the mainstream media that champions this idea that men and women are not paid equally because of "sexism".

Wage gap is a myth. If you correct for education level and time on the job, women actually make a tiny bit more. In many cases women have taken multiple years off the job due to childbirth, which affects their seniority on the job. In the past, men tended to have more education, though that is no longer the case with workers under 30. Also, men gravitate to more dangerous jobs, which pay more.

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.

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!

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.

8 Democrats Support Minimum Wage Increase

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?

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

Which will destroy the economy.

Some democrats candidate have come up with plan on how to deal with the issue of low pay as well as working towards a more stable economy.

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

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

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...

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

Um America needs protection what if ISIS were bombing us?

So while ISIS is killing Christians, we should wait?

10 Democrats Believe In Climate Change

Republicans also believe in climate change. There are people on both sides that don't believe in it.

Science has already proved that climate change exists

I feel like you are insinuating that Republicans don't believe in science when it's not true.

Republicans do to idiots

Climate changes is real and a very bad I'm speaking as a a child it will wipe us out unless we do something about it

The Contenders
11 Democrats Believe in Natural Rights

Really? Like the Bill of Rights?
1A>Hate speech, everything is "racist", "fairness doctrine", religious freedoms, banning people from internet/media.
2A>Do I even need examples?
5A>No person deprived of Life Liberty or Property with out due process of law? Abortion? If anyone believes in natural rights, it's libertarians.

12 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.

Criminals and people with bad intentions will always find a way to get guns regardless and to do bad things, guns or no guns.

There was another shooting this morning in Santa Fe High School, and 8 people have died. This comes 93 days after the horrific shooting at Parkland in which 17 people died. And there were 2 very bad shootings last fall, in which a combined 85 people died. And we STILL do nothing.

"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?

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

13 Democrats are Not Racist

That almost made me snort my drink. I've seen SO MANY racist Democrats. Again, there are people like that in both parties, not just in one. If anything most democrats are racist, you know, the ones that get offended by anything and that tell people of color what they should consider racist, but when one of them disagrees, they are put aside, especially if they are Republican. Even the current leader of the Democratic party Joe Biden has said racist things such as: "You ain't black if you vote for Trump".

That’s funny because The KKK wasn’t a racist organization at first but what happened was the poor subsistence farmers were pitied bu the generals that ran the KKK and were let in and all subsistence farmers had the same problem. Black people! The subsistence farmers were the minority and were Republicans. This is when Democrats backed out of the KKK.

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.

Margret Sanger the one who started planed parenthood called poor people and black people human weeds.

14 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).

Illegal immigration is wrong because it takes spots away from legal imagrants who live far away like in India and don’t have a rio grande they can cross

15 Democrats Care About Poor People

Its just like Labour in Britain got it?
I know what the words for American governments are. I learnt when I was little in The Simpsons (Citizen Kang) that you have just two parties.

Not if your Republican!

16 Democrats Don't Just Target The Upper Class

Uh yeah they do

17 Democrats Believe in a Better Education

If they did, conservative students and liberal students in schools and universities would be treated equally. Just look it up, many students have said they we're being graded differently by liberal teachers and that those same teachers are indoctrinating students with their liberal beliefs. I personally teachers should be completely neutral and that students should do their own research and make their own decisions on their political views instead of them being "taught" in schools.

18 Democrats Care About the Environment

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

It is bad that they care for the environment, instead of people's opinions,

And this is why lots of trash was left on the gruond by climate strike protesters

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.

20 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?

21 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.

Both parties have immature people and both don't acknowledge it.

Do they though?

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

22 Democrats Believe in Right to Privacy

Um...really? Being a democrat often means socialism with means the government is involved in almost everything

Right to privacy as long as we protect life, abortion is invading the privacy of the unborn and killing the baby, ban abortion if you care about privacy

Ex. Abortion is a right to privacy. (Roe v. Wade)

23 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.

24 Democrats Have Common Sense

I disagree.

Just look at some of the Big Cities ran by Dems! They do have Nice Amenities like Good Public Transportation, Jobs, etc. But on the other hand: Homelessness, Really High Cost of Living, Meth Addiction, etc. I'm not sure they use Common Sense while being Mayor.

There are morons on both sides, don't believe all this propaganda. Just because you are democrat/liberal, it does not give you common sense, same goes for the republican/conservative side.

Just like when Omar called 9/11 "some people did somthing". most democrats have zero sense

Truckloads more commonsense than Republicans.

25 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."

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

But they do get mad when someone disagrees with them.

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