A democrat is one of five possible degrees of view. (the five being radical, liberal, moderate, conservative, and reactionary) The moderate is a neutral standpoint where radicals and liberals are degrees of democrats (radicals being the extreme) and conservatives and reactionaries being the republican viewpoints (reactionaries being the extreme)

The democratic view point changed to be more of a moderate party during the 2006 midterm senate elections. Today we classify a democrat as someone who believes in:
-Privacy with limited government observation
-Pro-choice, but with certain limitations such as that partial birth abortions should not be allowed.
-Protection of the environment through uses of alternative fuel sources and cleaner practices, though not so much that our standards of life decrease.
- A strong government that helps people through well fare, shelters, and other means of aid, though not a governemt that will allow "mooching"
- Taxes being left as percentages, so everyone has to pay _% of their income to taxes, with exceptions for the extreme cases of poverty.

the symbol for a democrat is a donkey while the republican is an elephant. Also, democrats are generally represented by the color blue while the republicans are represented by red.

During the 109'th congress, the democrats where the majority composition of the house of representatives.
have tried to disregard my own viewpoints while writing this. Please take into consideration that most democrats and republicans are liberals and conservatives, not reactionaries and radicals. Most people think of the opposing party as radicals or conservatives simply making more tension. Both parties have some pros to them and both have some cons.

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

"As a Democrat, I voted for Barrack, because we need a black man in the White House."

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

-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.

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.
