Tony and I are on opposite sides of our nation’s great political divide. votes Democrat. I vote Republican. believes government gives us our rights. I believe government can only codify and protect those rights God has given us.
Since our comment thread has gotten a bit complicated on this post, INCOMPATIBLE VIEWS ON GOVERNMENT — PART 3B, I decided to construct a post out of ‘s reply to a comment I had made (here) and out of my response.
Are and I typical members of our respective parties? Probably not. Nevertheless, we chose our party affiliations based upon how close each party reflects what we believe. Therefore, I hope you will find ‘s comment and my response helps to crystallize the fact that the Democratic and Republican Parties have major differences. I also hope our comments make it clear that the two major parties differ over significant principles.
Which of us is right? Well, both of us thinks the other needs to give the matter more thought, and that much is true. Only God knows with absolute certainty which of us comes closer to the truth, but I obviously think I do.
Please consider our arguments and feel free to add your thoughts.
