Sorry it took me a couple of days to get back to you. I've been busy - this Chinese New Year thing has me running around like a Beijing duck with its head cut off trying to get things done.
Anyway, nope, not very Republican at all. I think I only once voted for a Republican, and that was like a few decades ago. Mostly I've voted Democratic, though a couple of times went with both Libertarians, Green Party and independents. I don't really like party politics, but I guess I'm moderately left of center, if that means anything these days. I think one blogger said it best: "The Democrats have moved to the right, while the Republicans have moved to the nuthouse."
Since 2008, when I voted for Obama, I've been so disillusioned that I haven't bothered to vote again. I no longer see a big difference between the two major parties in terms of content, only in terms of style. That is to say, both parties are simply bought and paid for by corporate interests. It was, after all, the Democrats who passed all the bankster bailouts that even the Republicans wouldn't vote for. Obama sat on his hands and didn't say a word while the whole Occupy Wall Street thing went on - he was too busy going around giving speeches on how he wanted more student loans so that everyone could go to college. And it was Democrats who gave us FATCA, that is now causing so many US expats to renounce their citizenship. George Bush, of course, was odious - his list of sins is so long I'd wear out my keyboard trying to type about them. Their science denial (ie global warming, even evolution!!!) is absurd. I will say though that the Republicans probably have a more realistic view of Islam than the Democrats. The Republicans gave us the amazingly stupid Patriot Act, but the Democrats (ie Obama) have enforced it with great enthusiasm against whistleblowers like Snowden and Bradly Manning. At least I can give the Democrats credit for keeping abortion legal (which I favor).
So yeah, politically I'm all over the map. And since this thread is supposed to be about Ko Wen-je (remember him?), I do want to say that I'm really glad that he doesn't belong to a political party - that may be his best feature.
