Thus far no one has given any reason to believe there is any difference between the parties.

IRRegardless of that, I still hate the Republican party more.

There will be a big difference for the better once a qualified, experienced politician is at the helm. That would hold true for either party. In fact, Biden is the perfect example of a qualified experienced Republican. Which is perhaps the best illustration that there genuinely is no difference.

Yes, but...

It's been qualified governments that have brought so much misery and destruction at home and abroad.

A major reason not to trust Biden. That and who he's choosing to surround himself with. Look Out!

Biden may be similar to a qualified experienced Republican, but the Parties have evolved. There are very few qualified experienced Republicans left in the Trump Party. So you are comparing the Democratic Party to the Republican Party of many years ago.

Compared to the Trump Insane Clown Posse, Biden is a saint.

As for "no difference between the Parties", that is simply a lie. You can search the internet and find all sorts of analyses of the records as to crimes committed by different administrations. Here is a pretty good one:

Crimes By Party

Quote:
Republican administrations have vastly more corruption than Democratic administrations. We provide new research on the numbers to make the case.

We compared 28 years each of Democratic and Republican administrations, 1961-2016, five Presidents from each party. During that period Republicans scored eighteen times more individuals and entities indicted, thirty-eight times more convictions, and thirty-nine times more individuals who had prison time.

(This does not include Trump's administration.)

Been watching recent news today. Republicans, in bed with President Donald (Coward, Traitor, Misogynist, Demagogue, Criminal, Serial Predator, Adulterer, Draft Dodger, Narcissist, Liar, Thief, Grifter, Incompetent, Bully, Braggart, Loser, failed Con-man, Fraudster, instigator of armed Insurrection, Advocate of violence, etc.) Trump* they're trustworthy? As said above, Biden is a Saint in comparison.

Dont conflate my meaning. Youve watched competent governments over decades cause death and misery thru out the periphery of our empire.
Trumps got his sh!tshow going. Im reminded of what Hedges warned. Loosely paraphrased what you do on the periphery of empire eventually you do in the homeland.
All I can think of is how many countries weve undermined and toppled with whats happening in DC right now.

How many here were hoping for our overthrowing of Venezuela? Iraq? Libya? Syria? Etc
Werent they mostly Bipartison projects?...

The claim that there is no difference is pointless gaslighting. The difference may be largely aspirational, but that is a difference.

My main bitch is that there is nothing but admitting failure with those who say there is no difference. I'm not willing to admit that, even though the ship may be sinking.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

The aspiration of both parties is to make america great again. Both parties seem dead set on killing and locking the other party up as the best path forward.

I've never heard of a Democratic President encouraging the take-over of the US Capital. Seems to be a Republican thing. coffee
