The Collapsing GOP

History Repeats
The GOP is like the Whig Party of the 1850's. The Whig Party dominated politics in the North for years and years. When the political hot potato of Abolitionism (the movement to end slavery) became the topic of the day, the Whigs couldn't make up their minds one way or the other.

Today's Grand Old Party (GOP) is scattered and divided. It is dying a slow death. Corruption and greed has become the way of life. Some behave and vote just like Liberal Progressive Democrats. They are more like the old Democratic Party because they have a strong record of spending for entitlements, excessive borrowing, ignoring their original Conservative concepts. They have morphed or been infiltrated by Progressives and abandoned most Conservative principles for power or greed. So we see a shift of the Republican Party to become the old "Democratic Party." It's true they are not all Progressives, but the ones who control the party are true Progressives. Karl Rove is a perfect example. They are NO friends of the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. (Examples: They passed the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act that undermines both).

Unfortunately, we also see a similar shift in the Democratic Party only their change is much worse. They have moved harder to the LEFT becoming more radical than ever and have become the Marxist Party. Their ideology has shifted harder towards Socialism/Marxism. Look at their actions and their votes. They want more government control over your lives, have allowed the nationalization of the automobile industry, banking industry, and now the medical industry with the advent of ObamaCare. They also want to ban all firearms, silence free speech with political correctness, and destroy the Constitution and the Bill of Rights saying it's old and does not apply to today.

The Republican Party sprouted-up as an alternative the the failing Whig Party in the 1800's. President Lincoln was the first Republican President.

That was then and this is now.

Today the Republican Party has forsaken its original ideals because of corruption and the hubris that comes from the power of being in office. We are watching them crumble in front of our eyes on a daily basis.

The Libertarian Party is much like the early Republican Party. People know of it, but it hasn't become the true third party yet. However, it's getting close. With a bit more effort, it can and will become the "new" third party.

If you haven't dumped the Republican Party yet, you should. They no longer listen or have your interests at heart. They are selfish and only look out for themselves and to their own re-election. Register yourselves as Independents or officially join the Libertarian Party. This will change the tide in Washington and perhaps new the way that we save America from falling to the Marxists we now have in the government.
