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.

Republicans are typically patriotic and aren't as concerned about political correctness as liberal hippies are.
Isn't it funny how the word republican is usually associated with being a patriot?

A member of the more conservative of the two main political parties of the United States. Typically don't believe that the government should provide everything for them. They can understand the difference between murdering an unborn child and executing a convicted murderer as a form of punishment. Also don't believe in electing a president based on their skin color rather than their qualifications. However they can unfortunately rival democrats in their ability to f*#k up this nation.
Ben voted Republican in the 2008 election.

A person who believes that all people should support him/herself. While knowing that the world is a tough place and not everyone has the same opportunities. Therefore it should be in the good graces of the common people to help each other and not a government regulated agency who taxes many of the very people who need help. A republican believes that if all where disciplined a government would not be required to centralized power into one person or committee but instead give the power on to the people.
An Example of a republican is some one who helps some one else instead of voting socialist and hope that they deal with it!

True patriots who are actually willing to fight for their country. They aren't pussies, unlike Democrats. They are not afraid to get up in your face. If this definition gets a thumbs down, it means your a homosexual idiot.
Ronald Reagan is the perfect example of a great Republican.

Someone who believes that charity should be optional rather than mandated by the government. Also tend to believe in real concrete solutions to world problems rather than believing in "hope" and "change". Believes in lower taxes to stimulate the economy and a limited government to maximize personal freedoms.
When the Republicans held both Congress and the Presidency, the economy grew with the DJIA reaching 14,000 points before Democrats took over the congress and after a year the DJIA dropped over 6000 points.
