Traditionally meant, "For the Republic," connotating "One for the people," as opposed to One who sides with an ideological "Empire," and initially had NOTHING to do with Right/Left-wing politics.

Ideologically speaking, Republicans' sworn enemy is not the Democrat, but the Imperial. However, there has been a switch in the labelling, and the party with interests in helping people by means of utilizing a/the Government run by the people (Republic/Republican) is actually a political view held by the Democrats (for example, Welfare, Civil Rights, Health Care, Education, ETC.)

The now-labelled "Republicans" bear a closer resemblance to Imperials (Exploitation, inconsideration, coercement of beliefs, etc.) than the traditional definition of Republicans.
Modern Democrat = Traditional Definition Republican

Modern Repubican = Imperial

A sadist who exhibits highly overblown levels of nationalism, which can be reasonably compared with the behavior seen in the early years in Nazi Germany. Usually works in the interest of the wealthy while fighting to strip the government of any and all programs that assist the poor.
At the Presidential debate, Ron Paul (R-TX) was asked a hypothetical healthcare question about a young, 20 yr. old, healthy guy who decides not to pay for health insurance because he thinks he doesn't need it. The moderator asked: Well what happens to the young man if something devastating happens and he needs medical care? Will you just let him die? Multiple audience members yelled out: "YEA!!" while clapping ferociously and chanting. Wow, that Republican doesn't care about Americans. They don't want to reform healthcare, they just want us to die of we can't pay. What a bunch of disgusting sadists.

A morally repressed person who feels deeply guilty about their sexuality, and whose sole purpose in life is to make you feel guilty, too.
The church lady who knocked at my door this morning turned red as a rose when my stripper girlfriend answered it wearing nothing but pasties and a g-string. Judging by her reaction, the church lady must have been a Republican.

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.
