    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Many patriots these days lament that the Republican Party has “lost its way” and “gone wrong.” It has “diverged” from the fiscally responsible, small government philosophy of Republican heroes like Robert Taft whom Eisenhower’s handlers finagled out of the nomination for President in 1952. We are told that is why today’s Republican Establishment hates Dr. Ron Paul with such a passion; that they hate him because, like Taft, he is the quintessential Republican. Patriots who say that are mistaken, of course. The reason the Republican Establishment hates Dr. Paul is precisely that he is not a traditional, mainstream Republican, that his platform of freedom is an aberration. The Republican Party didn’t “go wrong,” didn’t “go left.”[/FONT]

    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]It has been wrong from the beginning, from the day it was founded. From the beginning, the Republican Party has worked without deviation for bigger, more imperial government, for higher taxes, for more wars, for more totalitarianism. From the beginning, the Republican Party has been Red.[/FONT]

    It took a lot out of my sails, coming to terms with exactly how long ago it actually began.

    Who do you think was the 1st republican to ignore the constitution ? I say Lincoln, but stand ready to be corrected.

    Well, look at the guy they're being forced to support.....

    I wouldn't want to defend him, either.

    Funny isn't it? They're all about "the facts" till they get confronted by some. Then it's run and hide or the drive by garbage chuckin artists come out in force.

    Even seemingly good guys like Teddy Roosevelt had a hardtime ignoring their neo-con tendencies. One politician of his day said...."(Teddy Roosevelt) has no more use for the constitution than a tom cat has for a marriage liscense....."

    Nothing benefits the central government more than war. Perpetual warfare anyone?

    Republicans must not like being reminded of their roots I guess.

    Especially those who are happy with the outcome of the Civil War....

    Some of us are still smoldering over the outcome of it, tho. :laugh:
