How do democrats think differently than republicans?
We all know that they differ on their issues, but why? Does one group allow tradition and values get in the way of logic and reasoning? Does one see things from multiple perspectives? I'm curious to know your opinions of the psychology of these two parties.

I really do think that Democrats and Republicans view the world very differently. Republicans seem to be so much more dogmatic and doctrinaire in their political views. They view the world as a set of goals or ideals to be attained, rather than a group of relationships to be courted and persuaded. Republicans seem... More
