If you ever needed a reminder about the differences between the two major parties...

An AP story about the upcoming elections notes the following:

"The fate of hundreds of ballot initiatives will be decided. Several states will vote on proposals to ban same-sex marriages and raise the minimum wage. Republicans hope the former will boost turnout in crucial congressional races, and Democrats have similar plans for the latter."

One party is looking to bring out their base by institutionalizing discrimination and bigotry against a minority. The other is trying to raise wages for the working poor.

When people say there is no difference between politicians, and they're all the same, sometimes I want to scream.
