The Republican Party has been a disgrace for generations. Nixon, Ford, Bush, Bush, all strengthen the centralization of government in Washington DC. Politically, these Republicans are Corporatists, meaning that they serve the propose of using government to strengthen the economic power of the their corporate sponsors. What they are not are advocates of federalism, constitutionalism, or limited government.
Rick Perry, the Republican Governor of Texas, has been one of the most aggressive antagonists to private property through eminent domain. George W. Bush passed the most aggressive, and expensive, health care initiative (before ObamaCare), in his cooperative venture with Ted Kennedy, the Prescription Drug Bill. W's father ushered in tax increases. Nixon used Soviet-style price controls. Governor Chris Christie has repeatedly embraced ObamaCare. Paul Ryan and John McCain actively support Amnesty, as did Reagan. The Republican leadership in DC has time and again sold out the conservatives they represent for political victories that increased the size of their campaign chests.
Supporting the Republican Party is pointless. Socialism is horrible, but no worse than Corporatism. I do not believe that a majority of Republicans support what their representatives and senators do. So, I say, Death To Elephants! We need a massive movement aimed at fighting the Republican Party. Destroy them first, because if they are the only thing protecting us from liberalism, we are screwed.
