501 Political Party Concepts


Political Parties are rife with misinterpretation; let's review some of the concepts:

  1. Conservative values tend to maintain the status quo.

  2. It's never clear what modern “liberal” values are since, by definition, they're always changing.

  3. The only thing that really separates Republicans and Democrats is taxes.

  4. “Compromise” is usually a dirty word, but so is no compromise.

  5. Candidates don't read nor even know their Party's Platform.

  6. Naive candidates are a primary revenue source of the Parties.

  7. The competency of politicians is low because democracy is a popularity contest.

  8. Celebrity politicians have the advantage of not being beholden to the political power structure.

  9. Lobbyists are often a candidate's only sincere supporter.

  10. Unspent campaign contributions can be a nice retirement plan.
