The Republican Party has not been for small government since Nixon was President. Nixon was a liberal Republican who was thought to be conservative because of his anti-communism. But he embraced much of the Great Society, and did nothing to impede the implementation of Roe v. Wade.

I would say that the Seventeenth Amendment (electing Senators by popular vote) in addition the Twenty-Sixth Amendment (lowering voting age to 18 years of age) were the two worst offending nails in the coffin of our founded Republican form of government.
Then add in the Department of Education and we see a progressive trifecta
Not enforcing immigration laws is an attempt to seal the deal for the communists.
We see diminished State's rights, Mob rules, and a growing brainwashed young government educated electorate as a result of this 'progress'
Debt is a symptom. These RINO tools and their useful idiots that want to abandon the 'moral issues' and focus on balancing the checkbook miss the boat completely.
The moral issues are the ONLY thing we have left holding up the Republic and keeping in check the government.
