Question How come Indians love Democrats in US but hate the Congress and the Left in India?

I was seeing the reactions here about BJP's loss and Congress(I)'s ascension to the throne with support by the Left parties.


Everyone here hates the Left and Congress in India for very obvious reasons and rightly so. The Left is all about Communist and Socialist ideas like free electricity and lots of subsidies and hand outs and all kinds of socialist things - which really dont work in the real world.

Out here, the Democrats are also about socialist ideas like universal healthcare, hand outs, etc, etc.

There are some very striking similarities between Democratic agenda and the Left agenda in India.

Here the Republicans surely talk of religion and so does BJP.

So I was wondering what is it that makes so many Indians cringe at the thought of Congress and Left in power and then love the Democrats here in USA?

Just wondering....

Talking

Simple,
A hindu would like to live under a religious party rule only if the religion is hinduism. else it will prefer secular rule.

Concern for our people in India and our country in general is what makes a person hate Congress+Left in India and like Democrats in USA.

I think Sunit does not understand Republican Party idology, Republican are for less/smaller government, they are not agaist socialist ideas. If you look at that was most of the socialistic activities like building Chruchs, School and Hopitals are done by republicans. Democarts think that govt can do a better job and republians think individuals can do a better job, thats where the diffrence ends.


But in India its very diffrent. BJP, party of business guys want every thing for himself. Thats the reason they got thrown out. If you dont have distribution of wealth, it will effect the rich only..

Its like building a palace in a slum. If ur neighbourhood stinks how can u live in a palace, so good thing to do is give some money to ur neighbours to keep their house clean.

In my opinion there should be some modrate form of socialism for a socity to grow.

Socialism in any amount is impractical. Hope you find this series quite interesting to read

Sutradharji, It is the opposite of the title now.
You support the Cong in India but the Republicans in US.

Even at the time of this thread I never supported the Dems, but yes I did support the BJP.

But now the only thing which has changed is that I understand Congress and why India keeps voting Congress. BJP?? You gotta be kidding me Those losers are irrelevant and are only good for empty speeches, useless rath yatras and working with RSS to spread saffron terror.
