the communists regularly endorse democrats and the nazi political doctrine (aka national socialism) is much closer to that of the democrats than the republicans, so I don't think you could consider either of those groups an opposition.
No one is saying they hate you. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. Some people lean left some lean right. Personally I lean right and I'm am not rich at all and I'm 100,000 in the hole from college. You can't judge people from stereotypes of parties.
Why you have to be so divisory? What if they had the right policy? Even then would you opose them? And even if you dont agree with them, why do you have the urge to simply shun them? What about dialogue? What about understanding that most people just wanna see their country thrive? Those in power like this division, they will tell you; "Dont listen to those liberals, dont listen to those communist, dont listen to the teabaggers", etc, because its easier to control the people when they are divided.
Democrats aren't always wrong. They occasionally vote the same way as Republicans. So I guess you could say I do occasionally support Democrats, but only by coincidence. For example I'd consider myself a "supporter" of any Democrat who voted against the recent health-care takeover passed by a Democrat majority in congress and signed by a Democrat president over massive bi-partisan opposition.
Especially speaker Boehner. He and Bush have to be the two wussiest Republicans there are. He couldn't even get REAL cuts! He had to settle with fake ones. The only real Republicans in congress are the Tea Party. I consider myself a Tea Partier.
I agree that the Democrats are idiots, but rationally both parties have idiots in them. Which is why I consider myself a Democratic Republican. I get the best parts of both parties, good outlook on Israel (R) and strong support for gay rights (which should be D) etc. I am not one party. I look at the issue to decide the best solution, sometimes it is a R solution and sometimes it is a D solution, but not
Communists are "against democracy" but they are by no means opponents of American "democrats" - both groups share very similar goals and beliefs about the proper means of achieving them. The CPUSA endorsed Obama in 2008 [link] (note, this isn't some right wing blog, it's the communist party's own website) so I think it's safe to say this stamp doesn't obligate me to support Communists.
They didn't solve it - just postponed it for a while. But it's important to realize the mentality that both parties had at the outset. Most democrat legislators would prefer to simply ignore the facts, spend money like it's going to rot, and then look around for more. Considering that's what Republicans were up against, even the moderate concessions they eventually won are an accomplishment.
Even if we consificated the wealth out of the 10 richest people in the world, it would not even cover the deficit under Obama's plan for this year.
We don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. If a country that is an economic superpower of over 300 million can't make due for its poor and lame with $2.2 TRILLION, something is wrong.
It's called special interest, and it's the gimmick played by dems and RINO republicans.
S and P wanted very specifically 4 TRILLION dollars in cuts. The democrats said NO because they are only in office because they buy people off.
The USA is already a ridiculously expensive place to do business. Raising taxes leads to LESS income, not more. It's like a bad but expensive restaurant raising their prices to make more money. What actually happens is they lose the few customers they already have and go out of business.
