Republicans aren't innocent in this regard. They share in this distorted conception of rights to a large degree. They just don't take it to the extreme that liberals do.

That's true. There certainly are stances Republicans have taken that I don't agree with 100%, but often that means they compromised with Dems in ways that take away freedom. The Dem Party Platform is inherently anti-freedom.

It's not only their compromises with Democrats (generally entitlements) that are the problem. It's their stance against gay marriage. It's their attempts to prohibit or restrict pornography. It's their stance against the freedom to use drugs. It's their stance against free trade.

These are all restrictions of our freedoms that aren't restrictions against violating the rights of others. These restrictions on our freedom are violations of our natural rights.
