Analogy: Democrats vs. Republicans
Previously, I made an analogy of democrats and republicans as parents. Here's another. Let's say a democrat is walking downtown and passes a homeless person on the sidewalk who asks for some spare change. My impression , in general of the democrats' approach, is that the democrat would give the person some money. A republican in the same situation would say "Get a job!" and walk on by. Neither approach is necessarily the right one. The issue is complex. Are the poor to blame for being poor? Your answer to that question probably has a lot to do with where you are politically.
