Proposal re the Cons dropping the 'ic' from Democratic. 'Republic' doesn't work
Advertisements [?]
'Republic legislators' just doesn't have the nasty nose-tweaking ring of 'Democrat legislators.'

Democrap legislators. Demosplat legislators. Demo-rat legislators. It's all in the sound connotations.

So here's my proposal.

It's very simple.

Just change one letter.

Republicon.

And if you say it out loud, it has real bite (and sounds very British and cool).

If you want to emphasize it, in written form:

RepubliCon.

And for short: just Con.

===================

Con = as in con artist. Thief. Swindler.

Con = as in jailbird. Convict. Ex-con.

Con = as in against. Contrary. Obstreperous. Negative. Obnoxious.
