Tolerance or Intolerance

The Democratic Party, generally recognized as the Liberal Left, want equality for all and everyone’s voice to be heard. BalancedPolitics.org compiled a list of political ideologies for each side and included in the list under the Democrats: pro-choice, open to immigration, a strong standing behind the LGBT community, etc. The Republican Party on the other hand, generally known as the Conservative Right, upholds more traditional values. Consequently, the views of the Liberal Left can be interpreted as being the more tolerant, tolerant meaning accepting, patient, law-abiding, etc. Unfortunately, I was unable to open Democratic Convention website, making it difficult to compare their official platform with the GOP’s. This makes me question why the Democratic website is down during such a controversial time. CNN’s Gregory Krieg reported on the protests following the election and although many were peaceful the violent actions of others can hardly be viewed as tolerant or peaceful.
