the Parties of War- and Welfare

Over the past decade the two main political parties in DC, the Republicans and Democrats, have overwhelmingly voted for Warfare and Welfare in one fashion or another.

the Warfare Party

This party votes for:

  • endless wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and other areas with no specifically defined objectives
  • the PATRIOT Act, a war on US citizens and their civil liberties
  • the TSA and its parent DHS, following closely behind in the spirit of the PATRIOT Act
  • assassination of US citizens without due process
  • the largest hand-over of unchecked war authority from Congress to the executive branch in modern American history
  • the “War on Drugs”, which is really a war on peaceful American citizens that simply wish to be left alone

the Welfare Party

This party votes for:

  • government-run healthcare
  • expansion of Medicare
  • No Child Left Behind, one of the largest Department of Education expansions in history
  • socialized national property insurance
  • billions in “anti-recession” stimulus spending
  • billions in corporate welfare and subsidies

 

You think you know which party is which? Think again – it’s a trick question! That’s right – as a matter of fact, both parties have overwhelmingly supported these un-Constitutional, collectivist, anti-Liberty policies; and not only over the past 10 years, but much longer.
