Rather than move forward, Republicans want America to return to the fifties. They've resurrected Cold War themes: plutocracy, patriarchy and militarism. Plutocracy: Today's GOP wants America to be run by the 1 percent. Patriarchy: Republicans regard American women as second-class citizens, who should have no access to birth control. Militarism: GOP presidential candidates want a gargantuan military and believe the United States should prepare to "drop the big one" on Iran.
Burnett pretty much nails it in my book. Any one of these three is a deal-breaker for me, but when the mainstream Republican position consists of all three, my mind is utterly boggled.
Again I must ask: have they no children? No grandchildren?
