The devolution of the GOP

This article shows where the GOP used to be compared to what it is now. In Eisenhower’s time their platform increased minimum wages, expanded social security, promoted unions, increased hospital construction, increased medical research, expanded federal aid to the poor and public housing, ended racial discrimination in the federal workforce, expanded immigration, cut the military budget while still effectively conducting war and so on. Today’s GOP is the complete antithesis to all of the above programs.
