The issue with the Republican Party is it has been hijacked from actual conservative values of limited government, promotion of capitalist ventures, and what is an actual conservative form of Government, and replaced by the fucking dredges who, in short, feel the world is changing in a way that doesn't agree with them, and wants the government to be altered in a way that helps lock America legally in this one type of mind-set, that tries to prevent the world from ever changing.
And it's never going to do anything but drag the process down because change is what people want and it's fucking inevitable.
Yes the Democrats are doing the same thing for the opposite results, using the government to push change faster, but the reason they get general successes while the Republicans keep grinding on their own gears is social and economic change can fucking happen, while stagnation rarely ever works. We see it with the transition of power from manufacturing/farming to S.T.E.M. business, and how nearly every damn civil rights movement gains steam and then can't stop. We're not the same country we were 50 years ago, and we certainly aren't the same country we were when the "Founding Fathers" were around.
But no, this group of individuals in this country who miss the 'good old days' where there weren't no gays, or the factory was running, or whatever stick they have up their ass this week, and won't get over the concept of the landscape changing, are blocking out any actual governmental policies that could be considered conservative governmental policies. You only see Republicans using their power to keep things stuck in place because they're bloody obsessed with it. And it's toxic to them and the country.
You can get your governmental downsizing, you can get your lower taxes and your private sector expansions. LOTS of people would like to see that.
But until this 'cultural nostalgia' about homosexuality, and contraception (NO GODDAMNIT NOT ABOUT THE RECENT INSURANCE SUBSIDIES, I MEAN OUTRIGHT HATING AND LYING ABOUT IT TO PRETEND THAT KIDS WON'T HAVE SEX), or evolution or freaking LIGHTBULBS comes to a stop.
And you stop letting dick-cheeses like this guy get this far in this day and age despite the crap he's said and pulled, then NO ONE is going to take the Republicans seriously besides themselves.
Not this country, not this voting public, not the world.
Seriously that's your fucking problem right there. The lightbulb hysteria enough should make it clear.
