Do we really need the democrat party?
About it the only thing they want to do is destroy America their policies are horrible and very harmful to our country why don’t they just leave our country and go somewhere and start their own country like the Conservatives did when they started this one

What you need is to abolish first-past-the-post so you can get some other parties to compete against the two current ones.

The majority of us are for capitalism with a safety net. The argument is how much regulation do we need to prevent tycoons of industry from installing barriers to entry to great for individual to ever overcome and thus stymying any motivation for innovations that can only come from dreams of exponential gain. Versus how much regulation is too much making business so difficult to conduct that innovators cannot overcome the regulation and must give up on their dreams in exchange for the secure income of a company large enough to deal with that overhead or even working for the government itself.
How much safety net (socialism) is so big that it motivates citizens to use the net as a primary resource for even those both mentally and physically able to contribute. Versus a net so small that our moral fabric is threatened as those who have fallen for a myriad of tragic causes suffer all the pains that a lack of basic resources leads to, starvation, disease, hypothermia ect.
That is the fundamental difference between the two parties. We add in some social issues to create more passion than economic questions can inspire in us. How much liberty vs how much safety. When is a person a person.
Just remember, the parties social platforms have changed for over 150 years (start at Lincoln), evolved, devolved, shifted up and down and around. But the Presidential election outcomes remain the same at nearly 50% versus nearly 50%. Keep it close to keep that illusion of freedom. Keep you thinking you have choice. You decided, you're invested. This land is your land, now get back to work, worker bee. And we will keep you motivated as best we see fit.

Sure, a one party state like China . . . or N. Korea . . . no opposition party because that's "democracy".

Yes. We need someone to oppose the Republican Party, whose policies are much worse for America than those of the Democratic Party.

Pick up a history book. Conservatives tried to destroy the union by seceding and creating a new country. They were thoroughly defeated by the American army.
