Our republicans are not socialists, but anti socialist. But, many republicans are like democrats, if that makes sense. They are commonly known as RINOs (pronounced rhino) in the tea party world.<quoted text>
Well I find it works both ways as most Americans cant tell a liberal from a socialist in regards to Aus....but you are right your Democrats are our Liberals and your Republicans are our socialists....how am I doin':D
Our liberals are like your labor and greens and belong to the democrat party. Liberal isn't a party here, but a socialist ideology.
