Even Limbaugh agrees on this. The GOP is toxic, completely corrupt, time to kill it.

The Republican Party was formed on strong anti-slavery sentiments, and, at least for its early history, did some good for our country and for the US people.

In fact, the early Republican Party was pretty progressive.

After all, it was the Republican Party that invented the income tax during the Civil War.

And by the end of the Civil War, the Republican Party had created a national banking system, established new taxation laws and provided funding for schools and homes across the United States.

Decades later, the party was still showing its progressive roots.

When he was president at the dawn of the 20th century, Republican Theodore Roosevelt railed against the wealthy elite, despising the, “small class of enormously wealthy and economically powerful men, whose chief object is to hold and increase their power.”

And it was the Republican Roosevelt who argued that the US must have, “an economic system under which each man shall be guaranteed the opportunity to show the best that there is in him.”

Nearly 50 years after Teddy Roosevelt left The White House, Republican Dwight Eisenhower entered it.

Eisenhower, like many of his Republican predecessors, had some progressivism in him.

Eisenhower supported increased government funding for schools and education, and even thought it was important for the government to fund roads, hospitals and other parts of The United States’ infrastructure.

Imagine that!

Unfortunately, the days of Eisenhowers, Roosevelts and Lincolns in the Republican Party are long gone, and so too are that party’s progressive beginnings.

What started out as a good idea in Ripon, Wisconsin and Jackson, Michigan has turned into a nightmare for the US and for “We The People.”

Today’s Republican Party, the modern-day Republican Party, hasn’t done a single positive thing for “We The People” in nearly 100 years.

Instead, that party consistently does things that hurt our economy, hurt our society and hurt our country.

Today’s Republican Party has sold out to the wealthy elite, and only cares about helping the rich get richer.

They take millions of dollars in donations from lobbyists and mega-donors, all the while corrupting our democracy and electoral process.

Republicans today are in bed with the likes of Big Oil, ensuring that Big Oil can get even bigger, while our planet slowly gets destroyed.

Republicans today support policies that have destroyed a once flourishing working-class.

Like Scott Walker in Wisconsin, they want to rid the US of the labor unions that helped to build this country and make it great.

Today’s Republicans go out of their way to sabotage a sitting president, and deliberately try to sabotage foreign policy and diplomatic efforts.

Today’s Republicans don’t care if millions of Americans can’t get access to lifesaving and affordable health care, and they don’t care if millions of Americans are struggling to put food on the table each and every night.

Today’s Republicans don’t care if our bridges are crumbling, our roads buckling, or our electrical grids failing.

They don’t care if more Americans are in debt than ever before or if college education in our country is becoming a luxury that only the wealthy elite can afford.

While the Republican Party may have started out with some progressivism in its blood, today all that party cares about is money, big business and serving the needs of the wealthy elite.

Today’s Republican Party is completely corrupt. It’s that simple.

And in the US, when something is filled with corruption, we get rid of it. We shut it down.

So, maybe it’s time to shut down the Republican Party, and replace it with something that might actually do some good for the US people. Time to bring back the Whig Party?

And now these labor unions are allied with Dems to flood the country with illegals, dragging down wages.

The Left calling anyone Corrupt is laughable at face value.

I am socially progressive and financially conservative,, so I sided with Bush and even liked McCain ( though I voted Obama as I liked his plan to rescue the economy ) . Mitt Romney was not bad either. I am a big fan of Bush Senior.

At one time, this was the paty of ideals ( and though I did not agree with all of them, I understood). Now it is a party of Trump who makes weird statement and most the Republicans just tag along. Very few Republicans have the guts to call the emperor naked anymore. A racist who courts help from our adversaries (Russia ), has zero plan, fights ( in fact embarrass them) with everybody openly, had a robust economy which he put on sugar high , the stock market has not moved in more than a year. And , the problem is not just Trump but the racist and homophobic followers who defend and support him.

Contrary to that, even though I do not agree with the Warren and AOC, at least there is a healthy debate within the Democratic Party.

Get in their face and if you can't reach them, Smash their face.

That was Obama's message in 2008 when he was campaigning on change. That has been the collective Liberal, Democrat, Socialist, and Progressive's message since then.
They get more and more Violent, and the Partisan hacks in local municipality office, force the Police to turn their backs and a blind eye to it. Unless there's video footage of it, that went viral. The police never prosecutes the Leftist Terrorist Thugs. But they arrest and jail people for supporting Trump.

The Left are so far off the Rails, Trump is the best thing going. That is the reality that Democrats hate to grapple with.

Independents leave the fools with nothing.
