Someone said they support the GOP because they like small government.

Can someone out here explain to me how the party that tries to control people's bodies, their religions, and everything about their lives, who built the Dept of Homeland Security, who insist on fighting impirialist wars, who insist on sticking their noses in women's Vjayjays, is the party of small government? Please? Make it make sense! Help me unite with my strange, but fellow Americans! Tell me how Republicans are not as stupid and immoral and disgusting and as pathetic as I think they are!

    the issue here is that, for some reason, you believe that you 'think.'

    THAT'S your first mistake.

    your second mistake is believing whatever your masters at the DNC tell you.

    your THIRD mistake is that you go out proselytizing that DNC rhetoric as if its correct.

    Wow, are you HATEFUL much?

    You WHINE because someone said they support the GOP because they are for small government. Yet you offer no proof that the GOP does not support that. All you do is WHINE!

    NO Evidence + NO Proof + No Links of ANY KIND = NO Credibility!

    Here are links showing the true differences between libs & cons ... minus YOUR Hate Mongering attitude. Please note I put in LIB & CON Links.

    Actually, the poll option I selected, which you failed to provide, is the "Other" option.

    The main problem with Republicans is that they do not have enough Conservatives among them. Too many of them have become RINO's, closely resembling Democrats.

    But nothing. A large majority of Republicans are undereducated and so they believe what they are told. Because they are uneducated and thus resent the people more knowledgeable than themselves, the people they choose to believe are the ones who make being educated sound like a bad thing.

    Ironically, these people are also educated well, and are smart enough to know that there are nowhere near enough of them to secure their own interests (mainly money and influence), so they must trick people into doing so who don't know any better. They've gotten very, very good at it.

    It could be, perhaps, that their shoes are too tight.

    It could be their heads aren't screwed on just right.

    But I think that the most likely reason of all,

    May be that their hearts are two sizes too small...

    Do you even know what smaller government is? It is a government that SPENDS less.

    Now that wasn't such a hard concept to grasp was it?

    It's not a goverment that is constantly adding new regulations and Executive Orders that give near plenary power to the WH as Obama has done repeatedly.

    PS. Opposing taxpayer funded birth control is not "sticking our noses" in women's vaginas. No, it's increasing government spending pure and simple. If the taxpayers are supposed to pay for birth control, then why not have taxpayers pay for your toothpaste and soap as well? Both toothpaste and soap are important for women's and men's health.

    PPS. It is Obama who went to war with Libya without Congressional approval, overthrowing the government there. The very first policy announcement from the new leaders there was the institution of a central bank! The announcement was made within 24 hours of Qadaffi's death. Do you think that is what the rebels in the street were fighting for??

    Libya was one of the few nations in the world that didn't allow private bankers to control the production of money. Allowing international bankers to take over control of this is the very definition of imperialism. The real reason the US, France and the UK were so hot on overthrowing Qadaffi is that he planned to introduce a gold coin that could be used throughout Africa.

    That was just too much for the imperialistic Obama bankers. Qadaffi had to "go."

    The GOP is also the party of illusion. If there weren't hundreds of millions of dollars invested in GOP advertising, everyone would look at the man behind the curtain. Then the Republican Party would melt away like a wicked witch in a rainstorm.

    As a "Goldwater Republican", I can tell you that ours was once "the party of reason". What happened? Even though Barry said he'd never pander to the religious right, Reagan was elected and WAS an Evangelical. He didn't pander, but incorporating the self-righteous unthinking into the party was the beginning of the decline of GOP reason.

    I guess one could argue for George Will, but he came in with the Reagan administration, I believe, so his "objectivity" is clearly subject to question. I'm somewhat a fan of Michael Shermer whose Libertarian views can be appreciated. Most of the reasoning "conservatives" like Brooks have gotten labeled RINOs. I'm a fan of Karl Popper, so you know I've been left behind. I liked a lot of what Buckley wrote, but could never understand his Catholicism. Feel free to enlighten me if you understood it.

    ...so are Democrats. What you said about Republicans is true. They are not for "small government" at all, which is why I'm a proud Libertarian/independent. Freedom has to go both ways, economic and social. Take away either and you are not free.

    Bush was president when the banks failed. He helped the banks. That cost money. Bush started two wars under false pretenses. That cost money. Our current deficit is a direct result of Bush's actions. Bush was a Republican. The Republicans ruined the economy. Anyone that blames the current president for ANYTHING is a stooge. You are a stooge if you do not recognize these simple and basic facts.

    I agree the Republican Party of 2012 is not the Republican Party of 1864 or 1964. As for the "Tea Party" taking over...I think you missed an even larger takeover of the GOP.

    Let me ramble through history a bit....In the 1850s, the Republican Party was formed when the "Conscience Whigs" could no longer stomach the policies of the "Cotton Whigs". This new party took the economic policies of Henry Clay's Whig party, "The American School of Economics" which called for high tariffs and government investment in infrastructure and combined it with the "Free Soil" party's position on slavery and homesteading, i.e., "Free soil, free labor, free men". This position proved popular among the northeastern industrialists and the western explorers/developers. As a result, Lincoln was elected without winning a single southern state. As the Progressive Party, the Republican Party continued to win the majority of elections and dominated local politics outside of the South...where many people were "yellow dog" Democrats, i.e., they would vote for a "yellow dog" before they voted for a Republican. This long domination of the American political system earned the Republicans the moniker, Grand Old Party, i.e., GOP.

This long domination of the American political system earned the Republicans the moniker, Grand Old Party, i.e., GOP.

    After the formation of the Republican Party, the so called "Cotton Whigs" did not have sufficient support to be a political force. They were left with a bit of quandary, they agreed with the Republican Economic policy but did not agree with its positions on land ownership and individual rights. The bitterness of the Civil War left them resenting the Republican Party and so they became Democrats, albeit conservative Democrats. In 1964, 5 generations after the Civil War, Goldwater recognized the common values these southern Democrats shared with the Republican Party and began crafting a new coalition. Reagan added a watered down version of Christianity to the platform and walla you have a new Republican Party.

    Somewhere along the way though, the GOP lost its belief in limited government and a balanced budget....sure it still gave lip service to these principles but little else. As a result, it has been steadily losing the northeast and the upper midwest where the Puritan work ethic remains a strong moral principle. As a matter of fact, if you look at the electoral maps for Obama and Lincoln's elections, ignoring the states added since Lincoln was elected, you will find them almost mirror images of each other....almost all states that went Republican for Lincoln went Democratic for Obama and states that went Democratic against Lincoln went Republican against Obama.
