One of two major political parties in the United States, often characterized by hypocrisy, hyperbole, and confrontation without offers of resolution.
Tend to believe in the value a federalist government which:
(1) controls and redistributes the product of it's citizens labor to the lazy and purposefully indigent, justified by the principal that a small percentage of those people are truly incapable of increasing their quality of life while failing to acknowledge that the majority achieve their lot by choice;
(2) Controls, surveils, and dictates morality to the citizens of the 50 independent states comprising the Union (see: reauthorization of the Patriot Act);
(3) Assumes (incorrectly) all American citizens are evil and dispassionate by nature and therefore require a government to enforce a means of charity through excessive taxation, including one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.
(4) Believes that failing public schools should be given more money so they can pay higher salaries to underperforming teachers while begrudging a parent who wants to send their kid to a better school so they may learn something other than the proper vein to use when shooting heroin.
(5) Cries for the end of prolonged conflict in distressed Muslim countries, unless they (democrats) start the war themselves.
Chad sees a panhandler:
If Chad is a rational human being - "we should create a solid base for employment in this region and then offer incentivized assistance for the panhandler to educate and prepare for meaningful work in one of these jobs, provided he displays commitment and work ethic, thereby providing for a citizen and increasing contributions to our society."
If Chad is a Democrat - "we should provide Chad with food and shelter to comfort him in between his pan-handling hours, and create a system where you supplement his income through assistance paychecks that he in no way earns, but which will make me feel good about myself, even if I didn't do anything but force you to do stuff."

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.

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
bias mothafuckers (democrats and republicans) should do some thinking for themselves instead of using websites such as urbandictionary for propaganda. give tolerance a chance or something like that

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."

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 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
