Comparing Democratic & Republican Party Platforms

Party Platforms
One of the purposes of political parties is to articulate a set of policy positions and a vision for America. These contrasting viewpoints are usually best illustrated in each party's platform, or its stand on particular issues.

Click on this link to find a summary of each party's platform on a variety of policy issues. Either download the pdf version or read the embedded platform on the website. As you read, fill out this GoogleDoc chart comparing the two parties and their stance on issues. You may work together with your tablemates in groups of 3-4. Which party's beliefs do you agree with? What differences (tone, word choice, central message, etc) do you notice? Any similarities?

Please work quietly and diligently while completing this assignment.
