In the significant number of issues that face America today,along with the previous issues that have been discussed before, the Democrat party has delivered many points that has closely reflected the way I wanted to personally see the government control our country. Both Democratic and Republican parties have an immense influence over America's political spectrum, however they both differ greatly in their philosophies and belief systems. In my research I have concluded that the candidates/people of the Democratic party are more inclined to want the government to have an active role and to get more involved with society. Through this they believe that the government getting involved in society makes the possibility of the quality of people's lives gradually increase. They are referred to as being liberal because their belief system is based off of favoring maximum individual liberty in political and social reform. I feel as though the Democrats have given their approach rationally and sensibly in the standpoints on major issues such as social welfare, immigration, abortion, gun control, and health-care policies.
In the matter of social welfare the Democrats believe that there should be a partnership with faith based organizations to help the needy and have stern intentions to expand the middle class. On the other hand the Republicans believe that more welfare recipients should be moved off of the welfare rolls. The Democratic view in this situation is more appealing because they believe that " Faith-based organizations will always be critical allies in meeting the challenges that face our nation and our world--from domestic and global poverty, to climate change and human trafficking."(1) Partnerships with such a powerful ally will help us triumph over poverty. Also in the same document they wrote "We believe in constitutionally sound, evidence-based partnerships with faith-based and other non-profit organizations to serve those in need and advance our shared interests.
