One of the two major political parties in the United States. Democrats believe in equal rights, and aren't stupid homophobes that believe gays should not be allowed to marry because of what a book says. They have also set up many programs like medicare, welfare, etc. that help the lower-class citizens, which make up most of the country.

They also believe in women's rights, such as abortion. They also believe that if there is something that needs to be done, it is up to them to do it, and not the almighty God.

They care about the people of their country, and have a heart and help the less fortunate.
"He's more worried about unborn things that are probably a mistake and would cause the unfortunate victim nine months of pain and misery and homosexuals, who are apparently evil, getting married? A Republican.

He's more worried about equal rights of everyone in the country, the freedom of our people, and helping the poor and middle-class citizens instead of the filthy rich that make up only a small percentage of our population? A Democrat."

An American citizen who actually cares about other people. Likes to actually use logic to solve problems, other than the common Republican slogan, "If they don't agree.. Bomb 'em!" Often called "Communist", "Nazi", or "terrorist sympathizer" by Republicans for actually giving a damn about this nation's people.
Republican: Let's brainwash all of the United States' citizens into believing that we do the work of God and that Democrats are really just a satanic cult trying to take over the US Government!

-A person who is not a Republican, that is, is not selfish, self-centered, and greedy.
-A true democrat is a person that embraces the idea of freedom-the belief that each human being has the right to make her/his own decisions.
-A democrat believes in equality and in making available services to those with not enough money to afford them, because a democrat understands that poverty is not due to laziness, but rather to problems affecting a person's life.
-A democrat understands that not everyone can afford to go to college.
-A democrat truly embraces the First Amendment of the Constitution, declaring freedom of religion, freedom of speech,freedom of the press, and the freedom to assemble.
A single mother with breast cancer unable to work to feed her child and to afford adequate treatment for her illness begs on the streets for money or food.
A Republican's answer:'Ahh that lazy b*tch, if she just found a job or went to church. She deserves this for her awful sin of having sex before marriage. The Lord knows what he's doing!'
A Democrat's answer: 'I will give her money and start fundraising to gather money to help her.'
