Politics is a big topic with lots of different opinions. You’ve probably heard some of your friends or family talk about politics and political parties. A political party is basically a general collection of views or political opinions in one big group. There are many different political parties in the United States but we have two main ones, Democrat and Republican. Which one do you fall under? First, lets learn more about these parties.
Democrats support more government spending on social services while spending less on the military. They oppose the cutting of social services, such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and various other welfare programs, believing it to be harmful to efficiency and social justice. They support gay-marriage and are typically pro-choice. They stand for more liberal views.
Republicans on the other hand are more on the conservative side. Some popular Republican views and beliefs would be opposition of abortion and same-sex marriage, stricter immigration laws, supporting a strong military and capital punishment.
Democrats and Republicans are basically polar opposites. Those are just a few more popular topics. These two parties stand for much more and are one of the driving forces of this country. Take this quiz to see what political party you stand in. http://www.people-press.org/quiz/political-party-quiz/
