The Major Issues the Republican Party Faces

believe that the private sector would be more effective than the government in meeting these objective. Towards this end, they have been trying to privatize ‘social security funds management’.
They oppose a ‘single-payer universal health care system’ as found in other developed countries labeling it as ‘socialized medicine’. They favor the current personal- or employer-based insurance system complimented by the Medicare and Medicaid programs of the government.
As a general rule, they oppose strict environmental regulation as they believe it hurts businesses. They have made several notable contributions to the field of environmental protection but are not taking a consistent and clear stand on this major issue.
They oppose same-sex marriage and gay rights.
They oppose racial quotas, and abortions.
They strongly favor capital punishment as a means to prevent crimes while, at the same time, strongly supporting gun ownership rights.
They advocate a strong national defense and strongly support unilateralism in matters of national security and insist on their right to take any action in their own self-interest.
As regards international policy, there is a wide disparity between their stated objective and actual action. While their objective is to support attempts at democratization of countries currently under dictatorships, they have been actively supporting dictatorships in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Uzbekistan while opposing democratically elected governments in Venezuela, Palestine and elsewhere.

The final decision is in your hands. Be sure that you register to vote and use your power to choose and vote responsibly.

Will the GOP Mount a Third-Party Challenge to Trump?
Donald Trump may have eased some Republican fears Tuesday night when he declared his intention to stay inside the party. But if their angst has been temporarily eased at the prospect of what he would do if he loses, they still face a far more troubling …

    Yes, proud. No groaning allowed. Nor revisionist history. To the shock of anyone who relies on major media or public education for their opinions on the Republican party, this turn of the 20th century recount is an eye opener. The Republican Party was formed over a single issue: abolition of slavery. In 1860 the party got it right with the nomination and election of Lincoln. In 1861 with The Emancipation Proclamation they got it right again. And again in 1865 over vehement northern Democrat opposition, they got it right with the 13th Amendment in abolishing slavery (The South was a given opposition but could not vote as they had seceded).

    The book is a very interesting read, written when the history was fresh on the mind of its author (George Washington Platt). Further, though a century old, it couldn’t be a more timely companion piece to Spielberg’s very outstanding recount in “Lincoln”.

    Dated, But Still Useful, March 25, 2015

    First off, this is a dated work. It was written in 1903, so that it carries the history of the Party up to the election of 1900. It is also a highly partisan work. At the same time, it is still useful in many ways. In particular it includes verbatim copies of all the Party platforms and a lot of information about divisions within the Party.

    Obviously written early in the 20th century, this is an interesting history of the period. It is also a good way to get a more contemporary vision how the day to day activities and how they differed from now. Lots of stats that I find interesting but that could be a little boring to most, but they are easily skimmed it you prefer.
