Did you know that George Washington was opposed to political parties? He believed they would divide and therefore damage our country.
Did you know also that the Republican Party arose in 1854 over slavery? Republicans did not believe in slavery, and Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president.
Historically, the Republican Party has championed the right of individuals to pursue life, liberty and happiness. Meanwhile, the Democrats are still violating the U.S. constitution (see 5th and 14th amendments) and offending the American spirit in which the Declaration of Independence was written, via conveniently defining certain groups of people as non-human property and completely revoking their civil rights.
So it looks like both parties are still in the 19th century, and as a member of the Grand Ol'Party (GOP), I can say that I'm rather proud of it.
