The Democratic party promotes government regulation in the economy, protection for the environment, and support for labor and unions, along with belief in an individual’s rights to life, liberty security, equal opportunity, privacy, and dignity.
The central belief of the Republican Party is that each person is responsible for their place in society. They believe that the government should enable people to secure the benefits of society for themselves, families, and those who are unable to do so. They believe that it is best that government does not interfere unless needed and that the strength of our nation comes from within the people who reside in this country. They also encourage free enterprise and ingenuity will always carry our country forward as this has demonstrated in the past.
