While it is true that the Republican party used to be the party of Lincoln, and that a higher percentage of Republicans voted for the 1964 civil rights bill than Democrats, modern day Republicans are very different.

In 1964 Democrats from northern states voted almost unanimously for the civil rights bill, Democrats from the south voted almost unanimously against it. The Democrats who opposed civil rights were southern conservatives, they would be Republicans today.

Strom Thurmond was a Democrat, he left the Democratic party in 1964 specifically because he opposed civil rights for blacks. Charles Pickering, the conservative judge appointed to a federal appeals court by GW Bush during a senate recess was a Democrat and switched to the Republican party in 1964, specifically because he opposed civil rights for African Americans. Many Republicans who supported civil rights became Democrats in 1964.

Look at a map of former slave states and compare it to a map of the 2004 electoral college results. Notice a pattern? Ohio, Indiana and Iowa changed from free states in 1861 to Republican states in 2004, Maryland and Delaware changed from slave states in 1861 to Democratic states in 2004. Except for those 5 states, the maps match up exactly.

An American incapable of understanding or speaking the truth. A person uniquely deserving to feel pain and humiliation.

The political party of the ignorant, degenerate, and irrational thinking class of Americans that believe in getting away with corporate fraud and reward for unethical and inconsiderate behavior.

A poorly educated politician who is against government programs and policies that help the poor, improve public education, regulate business, provide better working conditions for workers, make everyone more financialy secure and make the country safer such as welfare, medicare, medicaid, social security, federal deposit insurance credit, the american dep. of agriculture, minimum wage etc. They try to privatize and totally destroy healthcare and social security. Republicans also try to force their religion on the nation and teach christianity in public schools even though there's separation of church and state. Republicans violate everyones personal privacy rights such as abortion and they pass the patriot's ACT. They are against abortion yet they will always be there to sentence someone to capitol punishment for a minor crime and they start wars for no reason. Republicans also refuse to provide funding for stem cell research even if it could help us find a cure for cancer. They believe in an economic system where 1% of the population controls 99% of the wealth, where the tax burden is on the middle class and where multi-billion dollar corporations arent't expected to pay any taxes whatsoever.

The American political party that protects the interests of the very wealthy and corporations by lowering their tax and regulatory burden, and making it easier for businesses to get cheap labor and cheap natural resources both at home and abroad.

Since the natural constituency for this agenda is very small, the party panders to religious zealots, racists, and the marginally retarded. Fortunately for the Republicans, the issues that activate this base usually cost nothing and have almost no overlap with their actual economic agenda.
Among wealthy: We need a Republican congress to get rid of that dreadful inheritance tax.

Among stupid: It was the Republicans what said we gonna git a flag burning amendment.

Someone who believes that the rich white male has the only valid opinion in the world. Most republicans are pro-life and pro-war, which also means they are hypocrites.
George W. Bush is a republican.
John McCain is a carbon copy of George W Bush.

At one time, men and women of honor. In more recent times it has turned into a party full of criminals and ethical slimebags. Slowly becoming the next Nazi party due to the efforts of George W. Bush. A party of cowards and low lifes who have little respect for human life, they get all fired up about unborn people, but once the person is born they figure that mom and baby can go F themselves if they need any sort of help. A group who's fall is coming in both 2006 and 2008!
George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, most of Congress, and so on.

Conservative, right-winged devout Christians, all Southerners except one Southerner educated and smart enough, is usually a Baptist, that has a fascist lock on how this country should be absolute Christian run, because they think it will make it perfect and please God, even though they know how good they have it, and they're in denial because they know religion sucks, and they love secularism, but they think they'll get some afterlife by pleasing God, so they keep it to themselves. They think as long as it pleases God, it should be able to be voted in, which is extremely fascist and dangerous to the constitution's secularism. The News station of every republican is Fox News. To them, other news stations are lefty and biased. Lefty Liberals may be dangerous, but republicans are just as dangerous. They think people like me who have mental disorders don't need help, and while suffering, we need only 'God'. They believe abortions are wrong because their holy book says so. For constitution's sake, mind you, any party that uses a holy book should be flagged as an abomination. They also favor various other things in the name of their religion, which is an abomination, and disgrace to the constitution & America which was founded to be a FREE & SECULAR country, They've discarded our freedoms so much, they've gotten In God We Trust, and Under God put in as our motto and pledge. Beware of this party. As an Independent myself, I could also write a song and dance for the democrats too.
That mentally disturbed pothead over there goes to church every week because he thinks everything he gets by working hard is given to him by the Christian God, and thinks Fox News and Republicans are the best party and news, unbiased and completely truthful.
