TOPIC: Republican Purity Test????

Republican Purity Test???? 9 years 10 months ago #383866

Anytime a political party requires you to 100% agree to almost all, if not all, party doctrinal points scares me. It's not hard to imagine a step to the right or to the left with someone saying if you are a "Real American" you believe what I believe.

Fixed. The Republican party abandoned those of us who don't outright hate homosexuals a long time ago. In fact, the Republican party washed their hands with any rational thought ages ago, when they discovered that playing on people's social fears and painting war heroes as cowards worked to their short-term advantage.

I would actually encourage them to continue this. By shunning their members who don't fall in line, they're trimming their numbers and therefore their power. You can't win an election without votes.

Considering the only "viable" options are between psychopathic bigots and indecisive incompetents, I'd have to agree.Bring Back the Whigs!

Only in America a country can even the Whigs be right of centre. In Britain, the Whigs were Left and the Tories Right.
