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

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 redneck, gun loving, democracy hating, hypocrite that typically belives democratically elected leaders are tyrants, fascists, or Socialists, despite the fact that in reality the US already has elements of Socialism in place. Responsible for 90% of America's current problems. Synonyms of Republicans include bullshit, dumbfucks, and elitist ignorant bastards
Republicans make good cannon fodder

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.

A republican is the type of person who is a part of the ignorant of the masses, and really is not doing anything for the good of the country. They think that they are the "patriotic ones", but is killing the innocent a patriotic idea? Are usually pro-life people but support the death penalty and for no reason, being in Iraq and being responsible for the death of the innocent. Like George Dubya Bush, and think turning the USA into Big Brother's house is the path of succes for America. These people should be considered dangerous and stuipd, and should be tried for crimes against humanity, integration of church and state, and violations to the US Constitution.
Today, Republicans voted for Dubya to go into office because they are bible-loving phanatics and nazi pro-lifers.

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.
