Democrats tend to show their true colors once they gain power. They tend to favor policies that do nothing but increase the people's dependence on government in hopes that they can remain in power. Democrats also tend to be more glaring in their breakage of campaign promises. Obama pledged in the campaign to run an open and transparent administration and in reality he's banned the press from at least one event at the White House. He promised that he'd not sign any bill until the people had some time to read it and in reality he's signed bills within minutes of them reaching his desk. He promised change yet his policies are simply grander, bigger, versions of tired old democrat tax and spend tactics.
