I agree that in some ways the Republican party has moved somewhat to their left.
However, your talking with a guy who is a fairly new Republican. Registered in 2002 after 30 plus years living in darkness.
I was a very very conservative Democrat who became disillusioned by JC the Peanut Fraud from Georgia. I voted first for Reagan and over the years no longer could identify with those in the Democratic party.
The Democrats were no longer the party of my father and mother.
It is my true opinion that the Republican party of 50 years ago is no more in it's true context. It is more a make up of the old conservative Democrats and that old faction of Republicans. I believe that is why there is such big fights and dissension from time to time on where we really stand on various situations. Thats not necessarily bad. The Demorats have painted themselves into a corner by going so far to the left. Therefore they don't have any wiggle room on just about anything moral or ethical.
Everyone seems to scream about RINO's but not me. Rino's can be controlled from within the party organization but pinko, secularists Demorats can not be controlled. They are like a bunch of mentally ill loose cannons.
Well thats how I see things.
I have a hard time knocking anyone who claims to be on the right of me.
Best of Luck
