It's time for Republicans in Congress to stop playing politics with our national security and fund the Department of Homeland Security with no strings attached. #FundDHS

And Republicans are losing their minds, because contrary to the lie of "helping people," or "being equal," every one of these policies hurts the true GOP agenda of class warfare thru ignorant peasantry.

A special message to anyone deluded enough to think "both parties are the same"
Here is a snapshot of a post on What's Hot bragging about what Ted Cruz stands for (which is pretty much the mainstream ultra-conservative, Fox News positions).  Pasted below are the mainline Democratic positions, and a clear demonstration that there is a HUGE difference between most Democrats and Republicans.

• Joins the vast majority of Americans in supporting tax increases on the richest 1% 
• Support the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") as far better than the situation before. Support a Single Payer system in time. 
• Oppose raising the eligibility age for Medicare. It is a successful program that helps millions. 
• Oppose private retirement account option for Social Security. Privatizing/vouchering is a terrible idea. 
• Opposes raising the retirement age. People in some countries can retire at age 57. Current US retirement age is old enough. Republicans seem to oppose even the concept of a retirement by constantly trying to jack it up. 
• Drilling has increased more under Obama than any previous president, but we also need to consider the environmental costs involved. 
• Accepts that Climate Change is real and that mankind is big factor in it. Science is science, and it is real even if Big Oil pays people off to say otherwise. Support action to curb Climate Chance and protect the environment for future generations. 
• Support comprehensive immigration reform to fix an outdated system. Support a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants under certain conditions. 
• Supports background checks to keep weapons out of the hands of sociopaths
• Support Roe v. Wade protections that keep reproductive medical decisions between a woman and her doctor
• Support full LGBT equal human rights, including marriage
• Support a stronger public education system that gives all kids a fair chance in life 
• Supports Voting Rights and democracy
