Defining Both Major Parties in Twenty Words or Less

Over at AmSpecBlog, Robert Stacy McCain has launched a contest to see who can best describe the Democratic Party in 20 words or less.  Considering that I’m a libertarian, I’m sure my entry won’t win — but here goes anyway: Of the big-government political parties, the Democrats are the ones who favor donkeys over elephants.

I’m wondering how other libertarians might describe the Republican Party, too.  My entry for the latter contest is pretty much the same: Of the big-government political parties, the Republicans are the ones who favor elephants over donkeys.

So who has some better definitions of both major parties?

    I’ll give it a shot.

    Republicans are pro-war statists who disregard the civil liberties which don’t get them re-elected.

    Democrats are pro-war statists who disregard the civil liberties which don’t get them re-elected.

    Hey, thanks for the shout-out, Stephen, though I should give credit for the “Boot On Your Neck Party” idea to L. Neil Smith.

    They could share the same three word slogan:

    “We’re not them!!”

    Democrats = Fascist Party

    Republican = Libertarian Party

    Libertarian Party = Republicans who don’t win elections

    Democrats want to control your money.

    Republicans want to control your mind.

    Simple:

    Democrats – Consistently anti-freedom.

    Republicans – Inconsistently anti-freedom.

    As regards life and death:

    Democrats will kill you before you are born, but not after you are born, unless you want to die.

    Republicans will not kill you before you are born, but will after you are born unless of course you want to die.

    Not original, can’t remember where it came from, but it stuck.

    My bumpersticker:

    With the Democrats, it’s man against man,
    With the Republicans, it’s just the opposite.
