Differences Between Democrats and Republicans

I came across this article written by Jeff at Addicting Info website. This list of fifteen key differences between the two parties is simple and straight forward. Shockingly, the list is absolutely true all while being brutally honest without attempting to be condescending to either party. If more people understood these key differences our country would be in much better shape.
 
Instead of trying to re-write, re-author or write an article around such a great list, I thought it better to present and share his list as-is and give full credit to Jeff at addictinginfo.org. Without further ado...
 
Fifteen Differences Between Democrats and Republicans:
 
"Republicans fear that the government has too much control over corporations.
Democrats fear that corporations have too much control over our government.
 
Democrats believe it benefits all of us to help the weakest and the poorest among us.
Republicans believe it benefits all of us to help the wealthiest and most powerful among us.

Lower Politician Wages

Over the past few days, while surfing a popular social network site, I have come across this post:

Salary of the US President. ..$400,000.
Salary of retired US Presidents ...$180,000.
Salary of House/Senate...$174, 000.
Salary of Speaker of the House...$223,500...
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders... $193,400...
Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN IRAQ $38,000...
I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree, repost

Well, I of course started looking things up and thinking- Why do we pay our politicians so much? Some people tell me it's to keep corruption out of government, others say it's to attract the brightest minds.

I believe politicians should make no more than double the federal minimum wage. ($7.25/hr) Why? Well, because I think our politicians are way out of touch with the average American. Corruption exists already in our government, why not try something different?
