Alt-Right Faction[edit]

"...and the blatantly racist Alt-right faction, which, at this point, is probably close to getting a candidate of their own into Congress"

Does Steve King not count? https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/13/us/politics/steve-king-collett-nazi.html --User:ClintWayne 04:02, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

@ClintWayne Hmm... Well then, it seems that section needs updating. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:07, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure that I would class him personally as alt-right. He seems more like your standard neo-Confederate style racist who happens to be using alt-right propaganda because that particular propaganda agrees with him, but he doesn't really use many tactics endemic to their community.

Citations Needed[edit]

There are very few citations in this article. Without citations it looks like we just made stuff up. MrNubNub (talk) 02:08, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Internal Factions Section[edit]

Would anyone else be up to adding a section featuring all the factions of the Republican Party and the members of those factions like the Democratic Party article has? ClintWayne (talk) 21:33, 16 August 2018 (UTC)ClintWayne

I know I'm 2 years late, but I agree. I think we should reorganize the "An incomplete list of Republicans" article along ideological lines like the Democratic Party.TheEndlessVoid (talk) 16:06, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Image change[edit]

Should we change the image of the mammoth in the article to an elephant? It would feel far more humorous, since elephants are living animals that are dying out anyway, similar to the Republican Party, and they're also threatened by global warming. And the elephant becoming extinct would be an ironic twist for republicans, since they're using an extinct animal as their symbol, which perfectly describes them.

"An incomplete list of Republicans"[edit]

Seriously, do really need another giant list in this article? That's why we have categories and individual articles on the more notable subjects. I believe the article would be improved greatly if this entire section would go away. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 19:06, 6 March 2023 (UTC)

No, we don't need this list. I'd support removing it. GeeJayKWhere all evil dwells Where every lie is true 19:09, 6 March 2023 (UTC)
Seeing as I'm the one who originally posted about it on the AfDem page, it'd be appropriate if I was the one who removed it. Which I just did. VeeMeow? 19:24, 6 March 2023 (UTC)

Timeline[edit]

Any objections to me removing the timeline? It's gross, breaks the flow of the article, and doesn't really add anything of substance not already covered. VeeMeow? 03:02, 7 March 2023 (UTC)

Just shorten it by a lot. Should probably summarize quickly their spiral into madness. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 06:36, 10 March 2023 (UTC)
