Have you ever noticed the dichotomy between Republican and Democratic rhetoric regarding personal and partisan acquisition and sharing?
Nearly every statement put forth by Republican politicians and GOP members focuses on what the Republicans want to have, as opposed to statements by Democrats and liberals calling for the things they need to have to implement solutions for extant social problems to promote the greater good of the nation.
This disparity relates directly to the fundamental difference between the two opposing camps. Conservative Republicans focus on their wanting more funding, wanting more like-minded allies and wanting immediate personal and party increases in funding for their private lives and political goals.
On the other end of the want vs need spectrum, liberals and Democrats programs and statements reflect the need for societal remediations of gender bias, educational disparity, civil rights abuses, social justice infractions,
Although these differences may seem obvious on a specific level, attention should be paid to the more subtle discrepancies of the basic ideologies between the two basic philosophies.
