The third in my series about how the GOP gets back in tune with the American people. At some point, and Im not sure where, the GOP became the political party that watches Its a Wonderful Life and cheers for Mr. Potter. It wasnt always this way, contrary to what Democrats claim. Teddy Roosevelt fought for the working man. So did Warren Harding. Ike kind of got it. So did Nixon and Ford. I would even say Reagan did. Even the Bushs werent that bad. But the Wealthy spent nearly a billion dollars trying to get Romney elected, failed miserably, and now they are saying they have to lay people off because they don't have enough money, even though taxes are the lowest on the wealthy they've been since before the Great Depression. The real conundrum of the modern GOP is that instead of determining what is good for working class Americans, they take the side of corporations and management, every time, and figure they can fool working class types into voting against their own economic issues by using the shiny things. God, guns and Gays. The problem is, those things dont really work as well. The Democrats gave up trying to regulate guns a long time ago, and people are getting to the point where they are accepting gays a lot more. That just leaves issues like abortion, where again, they paint themselves into corners. We always have "The War on Christmas" when some company says "Holiday" instead of "Christmas". Romney will hopefully be the last outright Plutocrat the GOP will nominate in a while. But it has been the habit of the establishment to shoot down (with help from the mainstream media) any guy who puts working class issues ahead of plutocratic ones. Buchanan, Huckabee, Santorum being the latest examples.
