== == == == Although not technically part of their platform, Democrats are stereotyped as liberals and Republicans as conservatives.

Common Liberal beliefs: * Womens rights (pro-choice) * Environmental issues like global warming are important * Same sex marriage

* Taxes to fix the economy Common Conservative beliefs: * Pro-life (no abortion) * Cut taxes to fix the economy * No special rights to interest groups
Republicans:

  • less federal government involvement. Republicans are strong supporters of the tenth amendment which gives rights to the states as opposed to Congress
  • capitalism- free economic market not run or regulated by the government
  • freedom is the most important aspect of America
  • republicans want to uphold America as a republic, hence the name

Democrats:

  • more federal government involvement. Democrats do not generally like the tenth amendment and want the federal government to have more power
  • socialism- not a free economic market. Democrats, like in other things, want the government to regulate the market
  • equality is usually the most important thing to Democrats
  • Democrats want to change America into a democracy, hence the name

Between the years 1870 and 1920, the major differences on national and state-relevant issues between Republicans and Democrats were several in number. In many ways, the most important of these was the issue of legislative direction of race-relations throughout the Southern states of America: Republicans generally favored the continuation of the Reconstruction 'ideal' while Democrats continually sought to establish White-centric (and, in fact, discriminatory) control of the states in question.
