Democrats: America is broken, and we are the party to change (and therefore “fix”) America.
Republicans: Washington is broken, and we are the party to change (and therefore “fix”) Washington.
Obama and the Democrats believe the answer to our problems is more government. McCain, and hopefully most of the Republicans view more government as the problem, instead of the solution.
I don’t know about you, but I am standing with Reagan on this:
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we’ve been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.
