45. 美国的两大政党是什么?
民主党和共和党



Explanation:   
  More than 300 million people live in the United States and they have many different opinions about how the government should be. If each of them voted independently (or alone, not paying attention to what other people are doing), then it would be very difficult to predict (or know ahead of time) how our government would be, and no one would be able to have very much power in American government. However, our country has many political parties (or organized groups of people who have similar political opinions and try to get power in the government) that people can be affiliated with (or connected to as a member). 

   美国有超过3千万人口,对于政府该如何运作每个人的看法都不一样。如果每个人都独立投票的话,这就会给政府决策带来很大的麻烦,这样一来没人是掌握实权的。幸好我们国家有很多政党可供人们选择加入。

  The two biggest political parties are the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. The Democratic Party is more liberal, believing that wealth (or money) should be shared among all people and that the government should make laws to help this happen, even if that means having higher taxes (or money paid to the government) so it can give help and services to everyone. The Democratic Party is also left-leaning socially, emphasizing (or giving importance to) protecting the environment, equal (or the same) rights for all people, and other social issues. 

   美国主要的政党有两个:民主党和共和党。民主党主张民主自由,要求政府立法来实现人们之间共同分享财富,但这就需要更高的税来服务大众。民主党是偏左派的,主张保护换环境、人权平等以及其它的社会问题。

  The Republic Party is economically conservative, believing that the economy should operate freely with little government intervention (or involvement).  The Republican Party favors (or supports) low taxes and less control and influence by the federal (or national) government. The Republicans also emphasize traditional values, such as strong families, little immigration, and the right for individuals to own guns. 

   共和党在经济上偏于保守,主张让经济自行运作,政府要少干预。共和党更支持低税收,尽量减少政府的控制和影响。共和党更加遵守传统价值,例如家庭观念、减少移民以及个人拥有枪支的权力。

  The Democratic Party is symbolized (or represented in a picture or image) by a donkey, which is an animal that is similar to a small, strong horse. The Republican Party is symbolized by an elephant. The parties are also symbolized by colors, with blue for the Democratic Party and red for the Republican Party. For example, a blue state is a state where most people vote for the Democratic Party and a red state is a state where most people vote for the Republican Party. After an important election, newspapers usually print maps of the country with blue and red states to show where each party won. 

  民主党的标志是一头驴,长得就跟一头精瘦的马一样。共和党的标志是一头大象。这两个政党也用颜色来区分,蓝色代表民主党,红色代表共和党。例如,蓝色的州代表这个州的大部分人都投票给民主党,红色的州就代表大部分票都投给了共和党。在经过一次重要的选举之后,媒体就会出版一张印满红蓝州的地图来告诉人们哪个政党赢了。
