If you're talking about foreign policy, you are 1000% correct. It doesn't matter if it's a Democrat or a Republican, the USA will continue to murder people abroad and undermine other country's sovereignty.

The problem is the current Democratic Party may as well be the Diet Republican Party that waves pride flags around. They get just as little done to help the country and most of its members don't try NEARLY enough to push more progressive agendas though.

Didn't Trump do double the number of drone strikes in four years that Obama did in eight years? Isn't that a pretty major foreign policy difference?

It's hard to get exact data on Trumps strikes. I haven't been able to find a number. An escalation of the same strategy isn't really that different when you think about it. Besides, Obama laid most of the groundwork for Trump in this regard, including extrajudicial assassination of a US citizen.

>It's hard to get exact data on Trumps strikes. That's probably because he revoked the executive order requiring them to report civilian deaths.


This_one_taken_yet_

Who they classified as civilians was always a bit nonsense anyway. If they couldn't positively prove if the dead person was a civilian, they were labeled a combatant.

It’s just to accomplish geopolitical objectives tho?


TerribleCataria

Both sides aren't the same, and both parties aren't completely the same, but both parties serve the same masters and are on the same side


birdogoulash

both the democratic and republican parties are right wing criticizing them both from a leftist perspective is not enlightened centrism


The_White_Guar

You're talking parties, not the political axis. An important distinction. Saying Democrats and Republicans are the same isn't centrism. Both of them are much too far to the right.

White guar!? I'm going to follow you

Imagine thinking two entirely different brands of far-right extremism aren't literally the opposite ends of the political spectrum that the human mind can comprehend. Why are there so many posts by conservative apologists here recently, and why do they get upvoted suspiciously fast?

Kyle Kulinski put it best: the Democratic Party by and large is just the Diet Republican Party, so long as they sit and do nothing to push progressive agenda or actively fight against it.

go back to r/politics


ronaldmcbadass

They kind of are though I used to be a conservative and people who lean right act exactly the same as people to the left except that people who are conservative are usually racist


AmbitiousAnnual9486

Democrats and Republicans are the same. Both think their party is superior when in reality the two party system is horse shit.


jaysmemes

Bro they are pro left here ..... its okay to criticize the right but not the left lol ... I however agree with you....


Meme-kai-yan

Red vs blue is rep vs dem. Both right wing sides

Gods I’ve seen this making the rounds before. It’s the most nihilistic garbage I’ve ever seen

Ehh I'd say it's more as Jean-Paul Sartre said [existentialist](https://goodmorningrev.wordpress.com/2008/08/14/elections-a-trap-for-fools/)

100% right. It’s just pure recycled crap for inflammation of both sides.
