Your Liberty is Our Interest

Democrats vs. Republicans : Why We So Disagree


by John Knapp

“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”….Ecclesiastes 10:2

Right is right, and left is wrong, and woe shall come when they meet.

Democrat politics are childish, brainless, gutless….an easy sell to non-thinkers.

Republican politics are harder, fore-sighted  (underwritten by historical facts), so more likely to appeal to more-rational grown-ups.

Democrat politics are heavily invested in ‘feelings’ and (contrived) ‘fairness’.

Republican politics are based on honesty and individual responsibility.

Democrat politics are – predominately – scheming how to get around the Constitution, the free market, and the immutable realities of life.

Republican politics are based on maintaining freedom and liberty, the Constitution as it was so brilliantly written, while leaving individual outcomes up to individuals.

Democrats believe in equality of outcome.

Republicans believe in equality of opportunity, understanding that every outcome is dependent on a myriad of variables, both personal and random.

Democrats want more government, meaning: a safe space, a sugar daddy, a guarantee, some sort of a government hammock.

Republicans want to rely on their own abilities, because they aren’t scared to face the realities of life.

Democrats are takers, usually amenable to trying to get something for nothing, particularly if it comes at the expense of the whole.

Republicans want to earn what they get, are more likely to share what they have, and they highly resent being scammed out of it for spurious reasons by tyrannical, nanny state government.

Democrats want to blame their shortfalls and shortcomings on someone or something else.

Republicans are more willing to accept failure as a part of living, as an invaluable, teachable life lesson.

A democrat’s beliefs will eventually require him to move away from God.

A fully-reasoned republican’s beliefs will most likely move him more toward God.

A democrat – fully marinated in democrat ideology – will naturally migrate toward Liberalism or Socialism.

A fully-reasoned republican moves toward

conservatism because it will most likely stand the hard tests of time and history. Therefore, conservatism cannot be regarded as an ideology. Conservatism is humanity’s ‘home plate’, life’s true ‘safer space.’

A conservative understands that any government powerful enough to provide ‘all things for all people’ must first take everything away from all the people, a truism which  democrats discount.

A conservative understands that the Founders’ intent in the Constitution is for government to do for the people only those things which the people cannot do for themselves.

Democrats call it a ‘living Constitution’, which means the Constitution is whatever democrats can manage to say it is, along and along. This is the proven pathway to despotism.

Conservatives love the ideas and Founding Principles that birthed our American Exceptionalism.

Too many democrats don’t understand the ‘why’ of Our American Exceptionalism. They just know they hate America.

American Conservatives really believe in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness for We the People.


American Liberals and Socialists have evolved toward the long-leftist, French Revolution mentality of ‘Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite’. The leftist definition of Equality, as applied through leftist government, comes at the expense of the Liberty of All the People.      


If you are not a little liberal when you are twenty, then you don’t have a heart. But, if you are still liberal when you are forty, then you don’t have a brain.


These are some of the reasons why we so disagree, why America stands at our current political impasse…..

…..and serious reasons why we should.
