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.

A political party, formed in Ripon Wisconsin in 1850s. Funny that their main platform was anti-slavery but now Democrats have the black vote. Lincoln was the first Republican, he was killed (durr). The elephant symbol was actually created in a cartoon after Democrats attempted to scare Republicans into thinking that President Grant would run for a 3rd term. The cartoon showed the Republicans as a huge elephant unscared by the rearing of the Democrat Jackass. The Republican philosophy encourages individual liberty, individual decision-making, entrepreneurship, and creativity.

I wish they'd be against welfare, food stamps, government grants, border jumpers (wet backs), and other idiots that ruin this fair country. They should be more for weed, drinking, and free liberties. But, you can't have both, so, between Republicans and Democrats, I choose the better compromise.
Democrats would be a whole lot smarter if they voted for Republicans

People who like to use their brains to:
1)Amass enormous sums of money.
2)Prevent democrats from developing legal ways of stealing it.
Intelligent life does indeed exist on Earth, as evidenced by republicans.

Used to be the party that stood for something. Has recently abandoned core principles, which is why it is divided right now.
Half the party still believes in personal responsibility, ingenuity, and resolve.
Believes that the very Government that has screwed every social program up, from social security, to infrastructure funding, to the banking industry, should not be the same entity that oversees healthcare.
The cavemen who would hunt, gather, fish, navigate, and kept the society generally productive were Republicans.
Un-educated up to high school diploma holders are generally NOT Republicans.
Those who go to college, and receive high degrees(i.e Bachelors), doctorites, or PhDs ARE majority Republican.
Republican: I have provided you the ends and the means to which you can become successful.

Democrat: Take that man's money! Evil! Lie! Lie! Lie! Lyer! Lying! Lie! Lie! I like to aimlessly throw around the word "lie"!

The most commonly mis-judged party. Most people that consider themselves Republican use what's know as "common sense".
Core belief: Less Government, More people, meaning the government is here to protect the country, not take away freedoms.
The government is not at fault for the American public spending more than they can afford. American citizens need to take responsiblity for their own actions.
Republicans aren't all rich, greedy, gay bashing, racist Christians.
A common belief is that most Republicans are against abortion. The true belief is that the party believes it's a womans right to choose, but should not use abortion as a method of birth control, and there should be required counselling before and after.
Most Republican's do not see color, do not care of your sexual orientation, and want this world to be a better place.
Due to the rise of celebrity popularity, the party of common sense is dying off. Most young people would rather follow their favorite celebrity than actually research.
Suggestion: Rather than being a drone to your favorite celebrity, research for yourself and have a mind of your own.
If you're "liberal", which means being of open mind, quit being hypocritical. If your party is defined as "open minded" then prove it.
Republican's are nothing but racist, gay bashing, oil grubbing, greedy bastards.

Most Republican's are free thinkers, and are treated poorly by opposing parties.

They treated me worse than a convicted murdering rapist and it was only because I told them I was a Republican.

The typical American Democrat will have an open heart, pocket book, mind to anyone and everyone...that is unless they're Republican
