    The Republican Party is the outgrowth of Medieval Protestants in England by way of three failed thinkers--John Knox, Martin Luther and Benjamin Franklin. The extreme wing comes to us from the Puritans and Oliver Cromwell; the moderate wing, pushed out of power since the early 1900s, comes to us as the remnants of the Federalist party who fell into disrepute and then reorganized in 1856 as a new party dedicated to neocon corporate economics, territorial expansion and general Washington power grabbing by insiders, moneyed elitists and and people who for pseudo-theocratic reasons don't really believe in the physical universe, just in super-developing the non-human natural world regardless of the damage they do it. They believe in the pretended infallibility of their executives at every level who are mystical annunciators of a replacement "public-interest universe" and the necessity of their being obeyed by order-obeying wage-slaves under the idea of "public interest lawmaking", meaning "statism"--with people having theoretical ownership of lives and property under them, which differs them from socialists who claim responsibility for both, but only until they find reason to declare an emergency and demand whatever they need from everyone.

    The Democrats are the outgrowth of the more worldly wing of the equally Medieval pseudo-religious party, the worldly Catholics "pietists" who are mild socialists but differ from the Republicans in every respect otherwise.

    The Republican Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, along with the Democratic Party. It is often called the Grand Old Party or the GOP. Founded in Ripon, Wisconsin, in 1854 by anti-slavery expansion activists and modernizers, the Republican Party quickly surpassed the Whig Party as the principal opposition to the Democratic Party. It first came to power in 1860 with the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency and presided over the American Civil War and Reconstruction. Today, the party supports a conservative and/or center-right platform, with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies and social conservatism.

    The route of "republican" is "republic", which is a state or country that is not led by a hereditary (passed-on) monarch, but the people have an impact on the monarch (kind of like voting a dictator into power). Anyways, the republican party is NOT a republic of course. It is simply a name to represent their party. (or if they are right or left wing)

    Republican party is very conservative, while democrats are the opposite and liberal. Examples of politicians who are republican are: John McCain and George W. Bush. Most of the time republican base their views as according to religion whereas it comes to issues like gay-marriage and abortion.

    The REPUBLICAN idea is the belief that government should NOT be involved in providing ANYTHING that you can provide for yourself.

    That means... NO welfare - no PORK - no handouts

    Civil defense? Yes... Education, Yes, Fire / Police Yes
