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 think the difference is thought period. The Repubs deify Bush and rubber stamp whatever he says/thinks. Look at the Rush Limbaugh phenomena; his lemmings "ditto" whatever he says/thinks. Dems have differing thoughts between them because they think.

Democrats, as a whole, are a little more compassionate for their fellow Americans who do not achieve as well as they have. Republicans, as a whole, believe that they should not have to give back to the system (and to the less fortunate) that has afforded them a good lifestyle.

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
