Foreign Policy. Believing that we should be led by the EU and the UN rather than the other way around is a recipe for a security and economic disaster.

Taxes and the environment -though it is worth noting that the Virginia Republican Party has a better record on the latter than their counterparts on the federal level do, even if they are too wedded to antitax fundamentalists for their own good.

Since I am not a "member" of any political party, I will list my disagreements for each of the two "major parties"
Republicrats - Want to stay in power, not fiscally conservative, don't respect the US Constitution or State's Rights, want BIG government
Demoplicans - Want to be in power, not fiscally conservative, don't respect the US Constitution or State's Rights, want BIGGER government

I would hardly know where to begin.

I think that the thing I find most offensive about the Democrats is their 'blame America first' attitude on foreign policy.  They seem so hostile to US interests, and really have been every since Vietnam.

The other big one is their belief that spending money is the answer to every problem.

Then there's political correctness, and their willful refusal to recognize that certain types of families work better than others.

I generally find that Democrats are far more likely than not to side with, and sympathize with, people who for whatever reason do not contribute to society (welfare recipients, criminals, etc.) at the expense of law-abiding citizens who do contribute.  Those who do contribute are at the very, very bottom of the priority list, and are supposed to make endless sacrifices for those who either cannot or refuse to contribute.

I don't really think the Republicans here have any kind of right to keep bringing up spending as an issue against my people when their congress has racked up record deficits the past 4 years.

Well, unfortuately, I can't argue with you there, except to say that the Democrats continually complain that we're not spending enough.

It's mostly the distribution of the spending rather than the amount.  Like, say, the $60 billion per year on Cold War missile technology.

Republicans:

1. Unilateralist Foreign Policy
2. General Incompetence/Ineptitude in dealing with Iraq, National Security, and Terrorism
3. Trickle-down economics
4. Fiscal Irresponsibility (The Democrats used to be like this, but since Clinton they've moved away from that)
5. The Religious Right: Other than Islamic Terrorists (or terrorists in general), they're one of the biggest threats to this nation. They only care about the two most trivial issues in the world - gay marriage and abortion - while ignoring issues that actually matter, such as Iraq, National Security, Terrorism, Education, the environment, and Healthcare.
6. The Environment

Democrats:

1. Abortion

Then there's political correctness, and their willful refusal to recognize that certain types of families work better than others.

Specifically what types of families are you referring to? I would agree that on average two-parent households work better than single-parent households. I would disagree that straight couples work out better than gay couples, or that having a stay-at-home mother is better for the kids than having both parents work outside the home. There is no evidence that children of gay couples or children of dual-working parents are any worse off than children of straight couples or children of stay-at-home mothers.

I'm a Republican and I'm highly disturbed with the way the Republican party has been moving.

I would still say education and the environment if we are looking at specific issues, as I did when I first responded to this thread over a year and a half ago.

However, I would add that the GOP's beholdence to big business is its largest failing and the thing I dislike about it the most. The party seems to have absolutely no respect for the middle class and the less well off and exists only to promote and protect the wealthy and privledged. I think this is a highly destructive attitude to take for the country as a whole and is fundamentally a denial of what makes America great, which is the working men and women of this country, not corporate CEOs.

So called "social justice."  It's a code word for tyranny of the minorities.
Hilarious.

Since I seem to have inadvertently revived this thread, I'll answer with the Republican commitment to militarism, although I increasing have similar problems with my own party.

No.  Finding alternate ways to measure inflation/COLA, raising the retirement age, cutting some benefits for the wealthiest seniors, and forcing all new state employees to enroll in Social Security does not equate to "privatization"
