Democrats want a small army, and want to send it everywhere. Republicans want a huge army, but don't want to send it anywhere.
George W. Bush has a vast army, and is eyeing up every country in the Middle East and Asia.
Democrats want big government, big spending and high taxes. Republicans want small government, little spending and no taxes.
George Bush drops taxes (very often), and the US has experienced their highest ever rate of irresponsible expenditure in its history. Not only that, but he's creating new governmental departments (Homneland Security, etc.).
