I came to the same conclusion a few years ago. The Republican Party no longer represents people but corporations. It attempts to maintain it dwindling members by catering to the fringes of society, guns and religion.
11th US President- James K. Polk Born: November 2, 1795, near Pineville, North Carolina Died: June 15, 1849 Party: Democratic Age when inaugurated: 49 Term: 1845–1849. Polk was the first "dark horse"or little-known nominee to become President. He presided over the Mexican War, which added Texas, California, and other territory to the U.S. Famous Fact: Polk is the only President to have served as Speaker of the House.
Quick history lesson. Republican: one who supports a republic govn't. Democrat: one who supports a democracy. Up until after the 60's, Conservatives were Democrats because democracy was a traditional view, and Liberals were Republican because a republic was a progressive view. So the 13th-15th amendments? All supported by Liberals and rejected by Conservatives. Conservatives have always been the problem and you just admitted to it.
Rand Paul, poster child for what's wrong with the republican party. ALL A BUNCH OF INGNORANT, PANDERING ASSES; WITH A HABIT OF HANDING OVER TAXPAPER $$$$& TO THEMSELVES AND THE WEALTHLY, WHILE LEAVING THE MIDDLE CLASS HANGING, WITH CLOSE TO "NOTHING." BASTARDS!!
As an American Citizen it Sickens me when I think of the Hell our Criminal Republican Congress put Our President through for the last 8 years, but now ready to open their Rotten Arms to a Clown that isn't even half the Man President Obama is!! What we have witnessed and are Still witnessing is National Disgrace. Shame on all of us if we continue to let Republicans and Trump destroy our country!!! VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO!!'
