1. One belonging to the United States Democratic Party

2. Tend to believe that government should come to the aid the most disadvantaged in society (see Unemployment Insurance, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security). We don't bring it up much, but it's what Jesus taught.

3. Belive in the separation of church and state, on the off-chance that not everyone in America is a Southern Baptist.

4. Doesn't believe that industries have the unfettered right to dump carcinogens into our water supplies. Also believe in protecting public health and worker safety.

5. Believe in strengthening public education, rather than gutting it with vouchers.

6. Belive in civil liberties and equal rights for all people, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation; a Democratic President pushed through the Civil Rights Act even though it meant losing half of his party. That half, comprising mostly of racist whites, now overwhelmingly votes Republican.

7. Most have actually read the 9th amendment. Can also spell "amendment."

8. Represent broadest spectrum of the American public: women, blacks, Latinos, gays, Jews, seculars, immigrants, union workers, and yes, also straight middle-class white male Protestants like me.
If they were alive today, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt would be Democrats.

The political party opposite the Republican party. Their beliefs are that everyone should live on welfare, and no one should be too rich. That it's OK to kill innocent unborn children, but killing serial killers is bad. And that Socialism is OK, as long as you call it "change." Their mascot is a donkey, and it suits them.
He's a democrat. He thinks everyone should be the working class, even though they rightfully earn their money

An idealistic, supposedly liberal political party that alienates all moderates with its stubbornness, hence a jackass as the mascot.

For example, many moderate liberals find themselves alienated by the extreme liberals' insistence on political correctness and intolerance to religion.

As one party in the two-party system in America, they are half of the problem.

Antonym: Republican

Those who vote based on irrelevant factors (id est, gender, race, charisma, et cetera).
"As a Democrat, I voted for Barrack, because we need a black man in the White House."
by T.T.T. March 28, 2009
A member of the Democratic party, one of the two major political parties. Similarly to Republicans, they blame all of the world's problems on the other party.
Stereotypically, Democrats are hippies.

The United States Democratic Party. Usually characterized by beliefs such as:

- personal privacy rights, including legalized abortion and gay marriage
- protection of civil liberties
- protection of the enviornment
- multilateral foreign policy
- extensive government services, such as health care, education, and welfare
- tax system that causes the rich to pay more taxes to pay for above government services

There are currently 202 Democrats in the House of Representatives and 44 in the Senate.
This is a neutral definition of the word Democrat. Urban Dictionary should be about defining words, not advancing a point of view.

-The people who started the KKK (or Ku Klux Klan) in Tennessee.
-The people who got us into a war that we lost (Vietnam), and it took a Republican (Richard Nixon) to get us out of it.
-Large group that obsesses on political correctness and not offending anybody (unless those people are Republicans, of course.)
-Are represented by an ass/donkey; they tend to imitate their party symbol very well.
-Despite the fact that many worry about offending other races, a great majority of them are actually more bigoted and prejudice than you could possibly imagine. Many radio show hosts and others have made racist comments and remarks about Condoleeza Rice, for starters.
-A group that desires to destroy the already-threadbare "Moral Fabric of Society", and therefore the beliefs and values that this Nation was founded upon.
-People who wish to raise taxes to a very high rate in order to fund frivilous programs that only benefit certain groups.
Those Democrats are still determined to destroy our Nation and what we stand for; I just hope we can defeat them once more when 2008 inevitably rolls around.
by Republican Warrior April 16, 2005
Somebody who thinks it's right to punish the people earning money by making them pay more taxes to lazy people on welfare who can't do it themselves.
That jackoff Democrat wants to add more social welfare programs, but it's only going to fuck the people making money.
