Republican issues are smaller federal government and giving power to states. In general, Republicans don't support any issues that give more power to the executive branch. Democrat issues revolve around more federal regulation stated to provide safeguards against corporate or local corruption. Republicans also tend to favor investment in military or foreign policy, democrats concentrating more on domestic.
