:) OK. I will give you President Reagan was conservative with a backbone, however he is an anomaly in that party. The GOP has been leading us astray ever since.
Not like they have the past couple of election cycles. As the article posits, they are now COMPLETELY AWOL on conservative issues that matter to millions of voters, and they don't seem to give a flip.
We begged him to deal with eight issues. We listed first the sanctity of life, marriage, religious life, Dont Ask, ENDA, on it went, Dobson said. We said we really are not here to jump on you, but evangelicals are not excited about your candidacy, not energized. You could connect if youll even mention these things.
He nodded and he smiled and he was gracious as he always is, and he went out and was silent, Dobson said.
Republicans in congress were at LEAST conservative enough in the 90's to see the encroaching tide of barbarism that militant homosexuals posed and were able to pass the DOMA into law, with Clinton's coerced signature (he didn't have the veto with such massive support in Congress.) And this was done well BEFORE any states had counterfeited marriage. We started losing it in the 2000's, and the newest breed of "Republican" in the current decade is now ripe and indistinguishable from Republicans even a decade ago.
