Don't expect too much. RNC--DNC; DNC--RNC?? What's the difference? Both are facades of a non-existent two party system promoted by the Establishment. The Tea Party Republicans were originally for less taxes and smaller government. They too were taken in, like their predecessors, by the glitz and lobbyists of D.C. and forgot why they were sent there.
Abraham Lincoln (the first neocon) was the first president of the Republican Party and what did he do? He gave Americans a huge war that didn't have to be fought. He violated the Constitution in more ways than be counted. Lincoln was our first dictator and he brought big government to America---in spades. He plunged the country into inflation and debt printing fiat Greenbacks through a central bank. His administration fought a war, not over slavery, but over tariffs. Manumission was ancillary in regaining Northern taxpayer support for the War of Northern Aggression. Constitutions only work when the politicians respect them.
The Republicans keep falling back on their onerous early history. Reagan is touted as a hero of conservatives, yet he drove the country deeper into debt and expanded its size while testifying before Congress that he "couldn't remember" whenever a penetrating question about his participation in Contragate was asked. Don't expect too much from the GOP, unless Ron Paul gets the nomination.
G.W. was touted by none less than Rush Limbaugh as a conservative early on and what did we get with Bush--a champion of less spending and smaller government? I think not. Don't expect too much from the GOP until 2014, unless Ron Paul gets the nomination.
Even then the Ron Paul revolution may be co-opted by the Establishment and we'll end up with the Good Olde Political party again. Taft and Goldwater were GOP aberrations promoting responsible government. Ron Paul is another GOP aberration that won't be tolerated by the Establishment.
It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.
