I feel ignorant so...explain Republican to me

I feel as if I am only a liberal because I don't know the other side of things.

What is it to be Republican? I want to know the other side. I will only align myself with a party that matters, so forget Green or Independent. I want my say to count and I know Democrat but, like I said...Republican?

My thoughts on Communism: it will never work until greed and jealousy (and maybe a few other emotions) are no longer a part of human nature.

One of my favorite quotes about the republican party is Arnold Schwarzenegger's at the 2004 Republican National Convention

I finally arrived here in 1968. What a special day it was. I remember I arrived here with empty pockets, but full of dreams, full of determination, full of desire. The presidential campaign was in full swing. I remember watching the Nixon and Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend of mine who spoke German and English translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism, which I had just left. But then I heard Nixon speak. Then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting the government off your back, lowering the taxes and strengthening the military.

Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air. I said to my friend, I said, "What party is he?" My friend said, "He's a Republican." I said, "Then I am a Republican." And I have been a Republican ever since! And trust me -- And trust me in my wife's family, that's no small achievement. But I am proud to be with the Party of Abraham Lincoln, the Party of Teddy Roosevelt, the Party of Ronald Reagan and the Party of George W. Bush!

Being a republican also means no gun control, not being pro-choice, but limited in ones ways to be who you want to be.
