Neither. They both take what they want and wipe their behind with the rest.

This is why we need third parties in office, but as long as the majority is following the big 2 like sheep, we weon't have that.

I voted Republican.
Of course this poll is like asking which family is more law abiding, the Gambinos or the Genoveses.

Excellent answer Loveshiscountry!

I can't in good concience choose either one. The lessor of two evils?

Dems seem to take us further away faster but the Reps ain't no charm boys either.

Both take extreme liberty in things they do where the Constitution grants them no such power.

The less they do the better.

I was unable to answer the poll because I consider both parties to be equal violators of the US Constitution.

Both Republicans and Democrats abuse and misuse the US Constitution on a regular basis. They just violate different areas of the same document. Traditionally Democrats attack the 2nd and 10th Amendments, while Republicans attack the 1st and 4th Amendments, and they both equally abuse the Commerce Clause (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3) more often than not. I seriously doubt anyone in Congress, Republican or Democrat, has ever bothered to read the US Constitution. Their actions certainly indicate that they are oblivious to the limitations it places on Congress.

Neither. Why do people assume it's R vs D. In each party I am sure there are people who abide by the Constitution in the Republicans I can think of Ron Paul and Paul Broun.

Everybody "abides" by the Constitution until the Supreme Court says otherwise.

Yeah right where in the Constitution does it say we are allowed to be forced to buy health insurance? Have a drivers license? Pay taxes? Wow I can keep going and a Constitutional Republic sounds really nice.
