Darth Niner. Cool. Even though I'm not a Democrat, can I have that double lightsaber that Darth Maul had? That was pretty badass

Funny, so in my other poll where I was doing this for Republicans, 100% of Democrats thought Republicans were the Empire and 20% of the Republicans thought they were the Empire as well.

Here most Democrats view themselves as Rebellion, while most Republicans view them as Empire.

I think most people just put the opposite side as Empire, because they think Empire = bad.

As a Democrat, I think most would side with the emperor... it’s the establishment, and larger force of government. It just seems like most Dems favor that style of leadership.

I don’t view Democrats as wanting larger government necessarily. They want to maintain a democracy and to do that they need government to be established, because they view power in the group mentality which can generally lead to fairer results for a more diverse society.

The Empire establishes a government by force with a few top people making decisions, generally for the sake of power and not the sake of its people.

I see what you’re saying, but as a Dem, I want a bigger federal force. Did you know since 1960, the federal gov’t has increased from 1.8 million employees to 2.1 million employees? That’s just insane... the population has increased way more, and these employees are over-worked. We need to start to make serious decisions on how many federal workers we are going to have in the future. Haven’t watched Star Wars in years, but I felt like the Empire was the better option.

So you you don’t want “bigger” government by having more regulations and laws put in place to dictate people’s lives. You want literally a bigger government so that we have more govt employees to make things work in the country?

Well, a mixture of both would be perfect, but some laws are ridiculous, admittedly. That’s my take on it.

Change "Dark Lord" to "Orange Idiot", and you have your answer.

Exactly, thanks for bringing up the republicans treatment of illegal immigrants. There is still hope for you, maybe you aren't so far gone to the dark side after all.

I haven't seen this, making things up won't help you in this situation, it will just make you look more desperate.

Oh abortion.... of course. Fetuses aren't undocumented infants, that's just silly.

But you are fine with the killing of undocumented children at the hands of border patrol. Speaks volumes.
