Don't count me among said doofuses. I know that there is an enormous difference between republicans and democrats.
I have never in my life witnessed such a vile 'governing' group as today's republican. They have no interest in governing, and actually seek to get elected to undermine their own government. They appeal to the rich and powerful, the less intelligent, and the zealous, seeking to merge church, state, and corporate rule into the cesspool that America is currently sliding towards.
Democrats are guilty of much less harm to this country. "Both sides are the same" is the most ignorant/shameful/desperate position anyone can take these days.
