    The Republican Party (often referred to as the GOP, for "Grand Old Party") is one of the major organizations in the United States' two-party system. In the modern political era, the Republican Party has been the more socially conservative and economically libertarian of the two major parties. The Republican symbol is the elephant, and its unofficial color is red. [1] As with the Democratic Party, the adjective 'Republican' is purely historical, and does not indicate any distinguishing value with regard to other parties

    The Democratic Party under its present name was established by Andrew Jackson during the 1820s, but it traces its origins to Thomas Jefferson and the Democratic-Republican Party in 1792. Since 1896, the Democrats have been the more liberal major party (in the modern American sense of the word, i.e. center-left). The pro-working class, activist philosophy of Franklin D. Roosevelt has shaped much of the party's agenda since 1933; his New Deal coalition controlled the national government into the 1960s. The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, championed by the party despite opposition at the time from its conservative Southern wing, has continued to inspire the party's ideas and principles.

    This is a good question, but a complex one. In general, the Democratic party is considered more liberal than the Republican party. That means they are more in favor of social welfare programs, more willing to use the government to attempt to solve economic issues and less likely to use the military to solve foreign policy crises. Having said that, there are certainly numerous examples of Republicans who are more liberal than some Democrats who are more conservative than Rebuplicans. You could study this topic for years and still not understand it completely. For more information you can check each party's website.

    In the past one was conservative (repub) and one was liberal (democrat). Conservatives wanted to keep government smaller, taxes affordable, and protect personal rights. Democrats/liberals like social programs, pushing for things like freebies for homosexuals "marrying", and the government more in peoples' lives.

    In the past decade or so I'd say the party lines have blurred. Our current president is a republican and should stand for conservative views, but instead he's really raised taxes, stripped personal rights, and done things that border on being Unconstitutional (eg. Homeland Security, illegal wire taps)

    Republicans use religion to direct followers and play on morals and values that of which no one has much of. They try to dumb people down like sheep and are led very easily. They like to give tax breaks but have spent so much that this country is broke, tax the poor feed the rich, crooked, warmongers, nazi tactics. Broken promises. High jacked government. Republicans hate the working class and outsource to show how lowly they think the American worker is. Dismantles the manufacturing base of America to give to the third world of which we have become.

    Democrats think they are smart and have a logical answer to everything and tell you it is o.k. to do anything. They like to tax but ended the deficit. Broken promises. Sissies. Always trying to end a war. Champions of the down troddened and poor. Just as crooked as Repbulicans. Immoral. Try to tell you to tax the rich more but don't.

    Both are liars, immoral, crooks, a travesty of government. Both are enemies of the working class and worship money and ship jobs overseas.

    Slaves to the Supreme Court . Both are Zionists that believe the survival of Israel is more important than the survival of America.

    Republicans support and defend the Corporations and the rich, Democrats support and defend the poor and working class, it's that simple. republicans think war is good for the stock market income, Democrats think war is killing our voters. We have 2666 dead and over 20,000 wounded in Iraq.

    Democrats have compassion for the elderly and the poor and Republicans worship money above all else.
