The truth is very simple and they certainly don't want voters to understand it, but the fact is socialists can't survive without capitalists, but capitalists can survive without socialists. Republicans don't need Democrats but Democrats need Republicans or the country would go bankrupt like it is in various Democrat controlled cities throughout the U.S. Are there any cities in the country going bankrupt that are controlled by Republicans (i.e. mayor, city council, etc.)? The answer is no. Democrats need to stop whining and instead get busy actually doing something for their constituents.
