Republicanism is the ideology of governing a nation as a republic, where the head of state is appointed by means other than heredity, often elections. The exact meaning of republicanism varies depending on the cultural and historical context. The sometimes contrary definitions are all covered in this article.

Here are three great reasons for voting republican:
1) Republicans have harder heads than democrats or independents. When dropped on their head from a height of 5 feet, more republicans were able to comprehend Bill O'Reilly Talking Points than independents and democrats combined.
2) Republicans are whiter than democrats at the skin level, redder than independents at the blood level and bluer than anyone at the sadness level - red, white and blue = more American than average.
3) It is easier to live next door to republicans than it is to eat raw sewage - eating ^^it is more detrimental to your health than listening to ^^it.
AND BEFORE ANYONE GETS PO'ed - this is all in jest. Hey, some of my blood relatives and many of my in-laws are republicans.
Radicalism emerged in European states in the 19th century. Although most radical parties later came to be in favor of economic liberalism (capitalism), thus justifying the absorption of radicalism into the liberal tradition, all 19th century radicals were in favor of a constitutional republic and universal suffrage, while European liberals were at the time in favor of constitutional monarchy and census suffrage. Thus, radicals were as much Republicans as liberals, if not more. This distinction between Radicalism and Liberalism hasn't totally disappeared in the 20th century, although many radicals simply joined liberal parties or became virtually identical to them. For example, the Left Radical Party in France or the (originally Italian) Transnational Radical Party which exist today have a lot more to do with Republicanism than with simple liberalism.

Thus, Chartism in the UK or even the early Republican, Radical and Radical-Socialist Party in France were closer to Republicanism (and the left-wing) than to liberalism, represented in France by the Orleanists who rallied to the Republic only in the late 19th century, after the comte de Chambord's 1883 death and the 1891 papal encyclical De Rerum Novarum. Radicalism remained close to Republicanism in the 20th century, at least in France where they governed several times with the other left-wing parties (participating in both the Cartel des gauches coalitions as well as the Popular Front).

A different interpretation of republicanism is used among political scientists. To them a republic is the rule by many and by laws while a princedom is the arbitrary rule by one. By this definition despotic states are not republics while, according to some such as Kant, constitutional monarchies can be. Kant also argues that a pure democracy is not a republic, as it is the unrestricted rule of the majority. For some, republicanism meant simply the lack of a monarchy, while for others monarchy was compatible with republicanism.
George Bush's presidency has been a disaster. Our ruinous war in Iraq has cost the United States $3 trillion. The United States has had a negative savings rate for some time now and deficit spending is out of control. John McCain has promised more wars and to try to maintain the American imperial system.
Another 4 - 8 years of this and the imperial system has a good chance of collapse. This means a decrease in American power and the ability for the United States to act unilaterally and invade other countries at will will similarly be diminished. This is a good thing. This is a good thing for the world and humanity. John McCain represents the best hope for ensuring the demise of the America's empire.
Vote John McCain.
Unfortunately, because the Republican Party is the lesser of two evils.
The Democratic Party has been the party of evil since its inception. It has been the party of slavery, segregation, the KKK, black codes, Jim Crow, lynching, Japanese internment camps, nuking Japan, and abortion. Every single time there has been a moral choice to be made in this country, the Democrats have come down on exactly the wrong side of the fence.
The Republicans successfully fought and smashed most of the Democrats' crimes against humanity. But it has lost its soul. It doesn't even have the backbone to fight against the greatest crime of all -- abortion. But, they're all we've got -- for now.
Why shouldn't companies be required to clean up their messes? To think otherwise is ridiculous. Why should we have to deal with the consequences of these corporations' manufacturing techniques?
edit: I realize you just quoted something in the video, probably for comedic effect, but my argument remains valid.
They fight for the lives of zygotes, and that absolutely makes them right! Plus, we're gonna need all the underprivileged babies we can get to fill the ranks of our military. How else are we going to promote democracy in oil-rich third-world countries?!?!
P.S. As someone voting republican, I truly believe in lower taxes. It's like believing in the Rapture. I know you can't see it coming, but you're just an ignorant, faithless, left-wing nut who probably likes to forcibly insert male genitalia into your pooper.
P.P.S. Jesus still loves you... BUT HE'S VERY DISAPPOINTED IN AFOREMENTIONED BEHAVIOR.
