The Democratic party is a party rife with cronyism, liberalism, and radical, left-wing extremism.
The Republican party is a party rife with cronyism, just right of liberalism, and moderate to left-of-center politics.
Why do I say that. Because of stories like this:

One of the things I disagreed with Bush on was his insistence that Islam is a religion of peace. It is not. Islam is a religion of "convert them or kill them". It is in the Quran, I am not making that up.
This movie lays out the case about the lack of peacefulness in Islam:

So this article about Republicans wanting moderation on the anti-Ground Zero mosque rhetoric is ridiculous. We are at war with radical Islam. All Islam is radical Islam. There is no such thing as non-radical Islam. The Republicans needs to understand that.
This just goes to prove that there is no ideal choice in elections for conservatives. There is only levels of bad. The Republicans are just a level below the bad of the Democrats. We are forced, in a two party system, to vote for the lesser of two evils.
Don't get me wrong, there are some good Republicans. They just tend to be fewer and farther between every year.
