Republicans, Democrats and a Social Media Experiment

I'm going to conduct a social/social media experiment here and I would love it if you would play along.  Over the next few days I will post the following question on Facebook, blogs and Twitter to name just a few.  Please submit your comments and thoughts here or on those outlets. I'll compile the results and we'll see how successful we are in both the social media and social arenas.


When you think of the terms 'Republican' and 'Democrat' what words, adjectives and/or phrases jump to mind?

Be honest.  

You will see the results in a few days.  Thanks for helping me out, passing it along and hopefully we will all learn a thing or two when this is complete. 


  1. The first phrase that popped into my head when I saw your query was, "Why can't we all just get along and do our jobs!" I mean really, party lines aside, shouldn't they all be working for the common good, using their common sense?

  2. Republican: Jesus, Money, Conservative

    Democrat: Welfare, healthcare

  3. I don't necessarily think all of these are TRUE, but I do think they are stereotypes:

    Republican: Wealthy, conservative, traditional, supporters of big business, "Good old boys," somewhat exclusionary

    Democrats: High taxes, liberal, inclusive, even the playing field, more govt intervention

    Hope this helps and looking forward to the results!

  4. Useless. Out of touch. Those thoughts go for both parties.

  5. Sellouts. Useless. Arrogant. Selfish. Foolish.

    That would be for both parties.

    Where do I get to write my comments about the third party?

  6. I think disunity, division, self-serving.

    While watching the State of the Union address last night, I was infuriated by the VISIBLE disunity among our government leaders. Drives me crazy.

    Ah let's see
    Republicans: money, champions of the wealthy, but dupers of the impoverished, bible thumpers, anti-feminism, 1950's value system, bigots, anti gay rights, anti any non-white American straight male rights, abuse of power, deceit.

    Democrats: whiny, disorganized, champions of the middle class, progressive, diverse, social capitalism (or capital socialism), even the playing field, opportunity, taking the tax burden off the middle class.


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
