Someone who has difficulty distinguishing between social and economic ideas. They tend to believe that by allowing "economic freedom" they are promoting democracy and liberty, and that the economic control hurts them greatly. At the same time, they are quick to eliminate freedom that really does affect people's well-being.
Republican: OMGWTFBBQ you Democrats are such fascists!
Democrat: Actually, fascists believe in a free economy and social control, which is the complete opposite of our beliefs and very similar to your Republican view.
Socialist: The USSR was not real communism. We are equated with fascists, but usually we believe in more social freedom than anyone except anarchists.

sad people who waste their time looking at all definitions of democrat and thumbs down everything that doesn't insult them and sounds intelligent.
Those republicans try to demoralize pacifists by saying they dont love their country, therefore scaring people into supporting war

Not related to the political party, they are a race of walrus people who constantly bicker and war with the the Democrats, (also no relation) a race of lobster people over control of the planet America (You got it, no relation) Both insisting they could do a better job, despite the fact they stand for the SAME FREAKING THINGS

A term horribly corrupted by the neoconservatives and the ignorant.

-True Republicans are against wars and support a nonintervention (=/= isolationism) foreign policy.

-A true Republican supports maximized civil liberties.

-A true Republican is against high spending and high taxes.

-A true Republican goes by the wisdom of our Founding Fathers (for example, the Constitution clearly states that the federal government's only real purpose is to protect our rights, not be our fucking babysitter). The USA PATRIOT Act is the last thing one should associate with the Republican party.

-A true Republican wouldn't declare a "War on Terror", but back a puppet dictatorship made by us.
George Walker Bush, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Dick Cheney, etc. are not a true conservative Republicans.

Ron Paul can clean the filth that's covered the Republican after all these years.

A word utilized within the FBI to refer to African-Americans. It is often used in a negative context, so as to obscure the topic of discussion from outsiders.
The Republicans are really causing trouble in Newark.

Folks who like to work for a living. They believe affirmative action is bullshit, should be the best man for the job. They believe in limited government, low taxes, and a strong national defense. You know....things that have made America the stongest most badass nation on the planet.
Barack Obama and his cronies are ruining the country...it's only a matter of time before the Republicans take charge again. Remember Jimmy Carter?

A member of an American political party founded on the issue of abolition (getting rid of slavery) as opposed to the Democratic Party which was formed on Indian relocation under Andrew Jackson.

The first Republican Presidential candidate was Abraham Lincoln and they were the main opposition to the pro-slavery Democratic Party.

In later years, Democrats claimed they were the original Republicans, mostly because they looked like buttheads for opposing Lincoln and good business practices. (Like not using slaves and stuff.)

But we know this is BS because even under FDR, the Democratic Party put Americans in concentration camps and today they embrace near-slave labor as long as they can get an overpriced iPad.

The modern Republican holds controversial views like small business is worth encouraging, more employees are hired when there are profits and private property should not be taxed above market values ever.

Social issues are all over the map in the Republican Party, because they allow other ideas into the machine. The Democrat Party tells their subordinates what Republicans think in easy-to-digest cartoonish talking points.
Republican: "I love that private commerce has brought us the greatest society in human history."

Democrat: "I am suffering with my two year old Volvo, iPhone, two iPads, Mac Book Pro and premium cable package.
You need to pay me a fair share you ____ Republican!"

Members of one of America's two largest political parties which, like it or not, are equals in opression as well as service. It has recently become trendy to hate them, because Green Day tells us to. It is better to be a republican than a tool whose information is force-fed to him through the hose of MTV's *infinite* wisdom.
Tool #1: Dude, Bush is a douche
Tool #2: Yeah. I don't wanna be an American Idiot. Let's go smoke some weed.
Non-Tool: Hey, or you could smoke a shotgun, instead.
