Republicans are one of two dominant political parties in the United States, and the one that cleaves to generally rightist policies.

Gained support by convincing poor whites that poor blacks benefited disproportionately from aid programs, thus getting a bunch of plutocrats elected to office for the sole purpose of giving tax cuts to the rich.

Also reflexively oppose every policy proposed by a liberal group on principle.

Dislikes government regulation of business. Would rather we have no way to stop businesses with evil intent from abusing us.
One good example (or bad one, depending on how you look at it) of a Republican is George W. Bush.

The Tea Party have about 90% of the time voted for Republicans, so any bullshit about them not being Republican is only so Republicans have scapegoats for the occasional really insane shit they do.

a political party that was orignaly anti-slavery when founded in the mid 1800s. Republicans cut taxes so they can stop spending on programs that look after the welfare of the poor and the middle class.Many conservitives argue that this spurs buisnes growth and helps the stock market and trade between nations grow.The problem is that tax cuts are just helping that side of the econmy grow without acounting for the other which results in smaller buisnesses getting crushed leading to a reduction in wages.When this happens the workers earn less income causing the standard of living to go down. when the standard of living gos down there is less investment for the future since public funding for schools are bringing in less revenue due to tax cuts causing those who cant afford private schools to go to public schools that arent funded well enough by the goverment to maintain a certain standard like getting kids to graduate or makeing a school drug free.When this happens public schools start closeing and the students who cant afford private schools just sell drugs or join gangs(or join a wal-mart since all the small buisneses have closed due to taxcuts).Republicans are also Racesist
to many tax cuts im gonna sell drugs,ya na mean if the goverment isnt gonna help me and jobs aint paying good enough i mine as well provide for myself anyway i can.

A fringe party consisting of religious lunatics, flat-earthers, and civil war reenacters who get all of their advice from Rush Limbo.
The difference between Republicans and other people is intelligence level...

A collection of goose stepping low lifes. These people put the wealthy, special interests, and Republican Christianity first, and the American people - especially the poor and vulnerable - last.

Cut taxes on the rich so they'd have more money. Cut social support for people. Throw money into the security money hole. Fight blood soaked oil wars. Try to privatize and wreck social security. Strip Americans of their basic Constitutional and Human Rights. These are a few things that Republicans have done.
What do you call a busload of Republicans going through the gates of a maximum security prison?

A good start!

The assholes who think they can run a nation. They like to target democrats and anyone else who is not Christian. The party is mainly white Christians, who fear minorities, common sense, homosexuals, and they tell Fox News Channel what to do. Unfortunately the United States is filled with them and make the GOOD part of America (democrats, independents, others who aren't Republicans) look bad. They are mainly found in small towns where farming is big.
Republicans think George W. Bush is the next Jesus.

The Republican Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in the United States; the other being the Democratic Party. It is often referred to as the GOP, or Grand Old Party, although it is the younger of the two major parties. During the current 110th Congress, it is the minority party in the United States House of Representatives and the Republican caucus constitutes a minority in the United States Senate. Republicans hold a minority of governorships and control a minority of state legislatures. The current President of the United States (2001-present), George W. Bush, is a Republican.

Since 1856, Republicans have won 23 of the 38 presidential elections, including 7 of the last 10; 18 of the 28 U.S. Presidents since then have been Republicans. After the Republican Revolution of 1994, the Republican Party was the majority party in the House of Representatives and almost continuously was the majority party in the United States Senate from 1995 to 2007; the Democratic Party took control of both the House and the Senate in the 2006 elections.
The Republican Party is composed of Fiscal Conservatives, Evangelicals, Social Conservatives, Neoconservatives, Libertarians, Moderates, Liberals (sometimes derided as Republican In Name Only, or RINOs, by more conservative Republicans), and Log Cabin Republicans.
