Have Republicans changed, or just their party?

To my pals who nonetheless name themselves members of the Republican Social gathering, let me level just a few issues out.

1. 20 years in the past, I heard you applaud the GOP’s assist for the liberty of selection, the precise to self-determination and the human proper to manage one’s future. Have you ever modified? The present Republican Social gathering is managed by politicians who’re brazenly selling the cessation of assist for Ukraine. Internationally acknowledged borders have been shattered by Russia. Continued assist of the get together will solely bolster this.

2. 20 years in the past, I heard you applaud the GOP’s coverage of free commerce and market-based financial insurance policies. Have you ever modified? The present Republican Social gathering pursues a coverage of tariff-based financial goals, primarily based on flawed financial data. Peter Navarro was Donald Trump’s Director of Commerce and Manufacturing Coverage, and is now a convicted felony. You clearly have modified since I knew you.

3. 20 years in the past, I heard you applaud and promote the GOP’s small-government method to particular person’s pocket books, training, family-planning and private rights. Have you ever modified? The GOP is now banning books, pushing “Judeo-Christian” values on a multicultural society, brazenly banning a girl’s proper to decide on and condemning particular person’s sexual preferences. Feels like the other of small authorities to me.

Have you ever modified? Or are you a member of a political get together that has modified?
