The establishment GOP (McTurtle, Ryan, Boehner, Romney, the Bushes et. al.) hasn't stood for anything in decades.

I haven’t read the piece yet, but, at this point, how the fuck can ANYONE not know what this GOP stands for? I mean…come on.


I don't completely object to this OP ED. But there's a couple of things in here that makes this too left leaning. The 1/6 statements and defund the FBI.

1/6 was just a pack of morons, with a handful of bad apples. They were rounded up, jailed and punished. Nothing really more than that.
Defund the FBI? No, just make it more equal. Did Trumps house really need to be searched? Maybe. But so did Hunter Biden's house. And when it was discovered that Hillary was misusing a server, so should hers. This was partially Trumps fault because according to Trump, "Lock her up" was just a campaign thing. A big lie to appease his supporters.

Is Trump a fiscal conservative? Not even close. He spent only $2 trillion less in 4 years than Obama spent in 8. "Operation Warp Speed," for a vaccine that wasn't tested for near enough time. Now the CDC's backtracking on his possibilities of heart problems in some.
Plus the unconstitutional FISA702, NDAA, and Patriot act. His misuse of eminent domain on our border. And a ton of other things I could point out. So I give the author of this piece some credit.

P.S. The one thing that's bringing so many people to the GOP is the left themselves. Trying their best to make all white people out to be racist. Shoving transgenderism down our throats. Getting deeply involved in foreign matters (Ukraine/Russia) that's none of our business. They're doing it to themselves.


We are down to supporting political parties because they're good. But because they don't suck as bad as the other one. And both of them still have a stranglehold on any 3rd party, regardless of how good their candidates are.

If the GOP stands for just cutting taxes and not cutting spending they are all done.

We all know what the democrats stand for:
calling parents who actually attend school board meetings and oppose CRT "domestic terrorists"
Protecting tranny sexual predators
a "woke" military
woke/tranny pronouns? whatever you call that shit
An armed and ready to kill IRS
An FBI that is a partisan arm of the DNC
An IRS that is an armed partisan part of the DNC harassing conservatives
An MSM that promotes bias and fake news
A war on energy and high gas and diesel prices
Open Borders
Selling SPR emergency oil to China
Saying inflation is ZERO while passing the $700b "Inflation Reduction Act"
INFANTICIDE

I don't think anyone fully understands what either party really stands for.

That's what makes it fun!

If you voted for Biden, you aren't a conservative.

The GOP doesn’t stand for anything. It hasn’t in years. It CLAIMS to be a Conservative, Right of Center political party but it hasn’t actually ACTED that way in decades. They ACT very much like the Democrat Party whom they CLAIM to oppose.

Sounds like one of those Lincoln Project Republicans who are just self important career political elites who stand for nothing but getting and keeping power for themselves and the good of the public or the Nation being a very, very distant second.

Well the article starts off on a false pretense: following the devastating revelations in the Jan. 6 hearings (

Scarborough, Navarro, and others who sound Prog socialist advertised as Conservatives.
Throwing Navarro under the bus after he went to the mat, refusing to testify for the 1/6 committee to protect his Dear Leader? Gosh, you guys are cold.
BTW, it's the POT now, party of Trump.

Yes, the devastating revelations came from Repubs who are former members of the Trump admin.

Who cares what the GOP stands for? What have they done about it is the problem. Only Trump --- despite all his flaws --- has had the courage to try to make America better and more moral. He would have succeeded far better if not surrounded by RINOs and of course all the idiots in the MSM, dem party, and culture.
The most basic things a conservative Christian ideology stands for are not difficult at all to list.
