    The Democratic Party has something it fundamentally stands for?

    No? Obama it is, then.
    It seems that Bernie Sanders is the only well-known American politician worth a damn these days. Unfortunately he has expressed zero interest in a presidential run, and most Americans would never vote for him anyway.

    I don't believe in big government. (That's a very general way of saying it, but I think it'll suffice.)

    Why is big government inherently bad?

    I don't know if I would call it inherently bad, but I just think that the government has been overstepping its boundaries. There are certain things that I don't think the government should have any say in, and in general, democrats are the ones who keep stepping over that boundary.

    In general, anything that you can do without directly hurting anyone else. In other words, I believe you should be free to do whatever you want to do as long as what you're doing doesn't impede the freedom of another.

    Attempts to outlaw firearms piss me off. Restrictions on where I can carry my knife irritate me. The recent New York soda ban simply infuriates me. I don't think the government has the right to force you to buy healthcare... Etc.

    The NY soda ban is just dumb imo. If you wanna drink it that is you. Weapons in certain places..eh. Wonder what would happen with shotguns at drunken sporting events. Me having to buy heathcare? That blows. I'm 21, no insurance, and because of that my taxes are going up. Great.

    Actually, I do agree that drunken people shouldn't be allowed access to weapons... at least while drunk, but that's not really what I'm talking about. It's more like the states that have the brilliant laws that you aren't allowed to carry a knife, even though they have no way of banning them altogether. Do they really think that someone determined to use a weapon is going to listen to your fucking stupid misdemeanor law when they are intending on commiting felony assault or murder? The only people who are going to follow your law are the people who want to use the knife defensively or as a tool... I.E. me...

    Some laws are just stupid and freedom restricting, in my opinion. And democrats are notorious for enacting such laws, which is why I won't vote for them. I'm not saying Republicans are immune, but they do such things far less often.
