If you are a republican. Hang your head in shame. As this is what your party has become. From the days of being for the working man. Now the party of big business. From the party that was concerned about civil rights to the party that is now trying to strip rights from half of Americans.
This is what the republican has become. A party that is no longer concerned with anything other than being ideologically and religiously pure. A party that is more concerned with denying rights to a segment of Americans because of their sexual orientation.
This Party of Abraham Lincoln. This party that stood up to the democrats and said that the Amerindians needed to be treated better. Now only sees money for existing.
This party that fought to keep this union together. Now promotes a secession of a State (Texas).
Oh yes, this party that understood that it is not about what each wanted, but what the country needed as a whole.
The republican party has embraced people that fights education. Promotes a religious idea as though it were science.
The republican party that has lost its very soul. Its most central message. For no reason.
The Whigs of the 19th century lost power and standing as that party could not adapt to the time. Now the republican party is now in the same place in the 21rst century that the Whig party was in the 19th. Only far worse. the Whigs at least understood the time had passed them by.
The sad thing is that republican party can not see that fact. Refuses to acknowledge that its relevancy is increasingly diminishing as it embraces a far right ideology.
What was a large tent that included many. Is now closed to all. Except to those that would be of the far right conservative religious fanatic.
That has lead to the utterance of one Mississippi Republican State Representative Bubba Carpenter. Who should have been censured and watch his political career crash for being such a bigoted and misogynist. Instead he is applauded by the same people who should have booed him.
A once great party has been reduced to this caricature of a political party. Deplorable and sickening at the same time.
