    first, thanks so huge for adding this section..i wasnt a frequent poster here but i did lurk..but was turned off by all the hateful crap i saw in every post..so i appreciate this and i read this forum now more than i did before. im hoping to participate more in the future :)

    my question is:

    is there a country out there now or in the past that has been successful in implementing
    positions similar to the american republican party? that has been both financially and socially
    successful?

    admittedly, im only interested in politics for a few years so i welcome a discussion on the viability of such policies as recommended by the republican party.

    thanks all.

    EDIT: my impression of republican positions..sorry didnt add that before.

    Just a little country called America ... heard of it? Moving away from many of those policies is destroying it.

    It destroyed every other society that normalized the practice. It's toxic. It is an acceptance that depravity is normal. When started, the trend never stops until the society is fully decayed and corrupt.

    I don't think you'll find any western nation that has all of those positions.

    You have to separate them 1st, between the policy positions and the religious ones. America is a conservative nation, one of the the most conservative of the western nations, so I don't think the moral positions are relevant.


    As to the policies, sure there are other countries similar to us that have political parties that hold those ideals. However I've never heard or read of any country that is solely dominated by those principals. The best thing is to struck a balance between parties and to understand that both sides have valid points that can and do work, depending on the climate of the country at the time.
