The Republican Party has become a shell of its old self, and is no longer truly representative of conservative ideology.
It no longer is concerned about deficits and increase in the national debt, except when the Democratic opposition is in power.
It no longer concerned about national defense, as many of its present officeholders have attacked the military leadership for standing up to insurrectionists who attacked the US Capitol on January 6, including General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joints Chief of Staff being criticized by the likes of Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida, and Fox News Channel talk show hosts.
It is no longer concerned about truth and facts, as it attacks science knowledge and historical knowledge, and is unconcerned about global warming and climate change.
It is no longer concerned about racial equality and fairness, part of its founding principles under Abraham Lincoln.
It no longer appeals to millions of African Americans, Hispanic-Latino Americans, college educated suburbanites, urban areas, the middle class, women voters, and the younger generation.
They are more concerned about rural areas, where most people are whites, but can wield power due to gerrymandering, and the ability to control the Electoral College and the US Senate, where democracy has been under attack, and favors fewer voters nationally.
They are more concerned about representing those who hate immigrants, and people of color, and want to control women’s reproductive choices.
They are appealing to the extremely wealthy and powerful corporations, while working to undermine workers’ rights and labor unions.
They want to promote mind control and dictate to educators how science and history are taught.
They represent a dwindling white population stirred to fear by bigots in the Republican Party, who wish to resist the rapidly changing population which in 2045, will be a majority minority, with people of color together being the majority, and particularly so with people with Hispanic-Latino heritage.
