The three issues I picked to compare andcontrast between the view of the Republics verse the Democrats are theenvironment, education and gun control.In regards tothe issue of the environment, the Democrats believe that it is the governments’job to regulate protecting the environment by restoring, preserving, andconserving different landscapes. The Democrats believe that a healthyenvironment is a baseline for different industries such as tourism and bypromoting new technologies to protect the environment new jobs arecreated. They also believe that ahealthy environment will have a positive impact on the economy. The Republicansbelieve that the key to environmental protection is private property ownershipbecause it has developed management of the environment and they believe thesolution to the environmental problems is market-based.
One belief that boththe Republicans and Democrats have is that the public should have access to morelands so they can do recreational activities. In my opinion, I agree with theDemocrats because you need a healthy environment before you can think a healthyeconomy.In regards tothe issue of education, the Democrats want more federal regulation whileRepublicans want less federal regulation.
Democrats want to strength public schoolsand support loans given out by the federal government. The Republicans believethat federal student aid is unstable and the federal government shouldn’t beinvolved in student loans and that loans should be offer by the private sectorwith the government serving as an insurance sponsor. They believe that parentsand there children should have a choice in there education and the governmentshould have less control. I agree with the republicans on the fact that parentsand there children should have more control on should have more control over theireducation but I disagree that student loans should be from the private sector.In regards tothe issue of gun control, the Democrats want logical legislation to control whocan buy guns while the Republicans are against any legislation that restrictsgun rights. The Democrats view on the issue is that the strict execution ofcurrent laws and a stronger background check system with regulations on child safetylocks as well as photo license I.
D, background check, and gun safety test attime of purchase. The Republicans view on the issue is that that the SecondAmendment gives individuals the right to keep and bear arms and they oppose anynational licensing because they think it a violation of the Second Amendment. Iagree with the Democrats to have some logical legislation to prevent gunsgetting into hand of criminals because without some control anyone can have agun which in turn can cause gun violence to go up.
