look up any word, like cunt:
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.

When Europeans think of America, they think of fat, SUV-driving, bigoted hicks. They think of Republicans. The Republican may be found in any socioeconomic class, whether it be the Trailer Park Republican, the Suburbanite Republican, or the Old Money Republican. They are oftentimes religious, but rarely anything other than Christian. What the Republican fails to realize, however, is that, were Jesus alive today, he'd probably be liberal. He hung out with the dregs of society, was charitable, and was a radical. None of these things embody Republican beliefs, unless you consider the dregs of society to be Wall Street, or the KKK. By all means, the common Republican will spend time with these people. It is not uncommon to be given dirty looks by the Republican for wearing a Darfur T-Shirt, a PETA shirt, or any punk band shirt. Never tell them that you are a vegetarian, or worse, a Jew. If you are Jewish, be wary of the Republican- they WILL tell you that your people killed Jesus (however, they fail to realize that this is like saying the Americans killed Martin Luther King, as Jews made up the majority of the Biblical World).

The Republican detests anything radical: just this week, one confided in me that, were his best friend homosexual, he would disown him. The Republican supports war, oftentimes on the rationale that we must maintain our reputation in the world. Which one would that be? The World-Cop status, or the Most Hated Superpower status?
Chris Christy, New Jersey's fine Republican governor, stated that he wants to put a spending halt on the state, to shrink our bloated economy. Might I suggest he start with his waistband?

Someone who is to stupid to realize that the Republican party is does not give two shits about him.

Someone who votes for Bush then cries when his kid is killed in Iraq, when he has no job, when corporate criminals go free.

Basically, someone who is too stupid to put 2 and 2 together.
Conservative Jews are often Republicans and don't realize that Republicans hate Jews and only support Israel to bring about the second coming of Christ.

1) Somebody who's never been unemployed (or else is so rich that they've never needed a job.) Someone who's never been without health insurance.

2) Someone who's so sanctimonious and prissy that they'll never get laid - so he/she is against sex, contraceptives, and abortion.

3) Someone who's an unpopular loser who never had a day of fun in his/her life, unless it was bullying other people. So he/she is against anything fun (drugs, sex, rock 'n' roll.)

4) Someone who buys a big, expensive house in a fancy neighborhood, and then whines about paying high taxes.
I'm not independently wealthy, and I have a sex life - so I can't afford to be a Republican.

A republican means a greedy evil bastard who will do anything and kill anyone to get the money he wants, the SUV he needs, and making sure poor people starve in the name of Jesus and the Megachurches.
You might be a Republican if you think 'proletariat' is a type of cheese.
