Is this his horrible liberal socialist agenda laid bare?
The legitimate object of Government is to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done but cannot do at all, or cannot so well do, for themselves in their separate and individual capacities. But in all that people can individually do as well for themselves, Government ought NOT to interfere.”
In all those things which deal with people, be liberal, be human. In all those things which deal with peoples money, or their economy, or their form of government, be conservative.”
The purpose is to establish and maintain a peaceful world and build at home a dynamic prosperity in which every citizen fairly shares. We shall ever build anew, that our children and their children, without distinction because of race, creed or color, may know the blessings of our free land.”
We believe that basic to governmental integrity are unimpeachable ethical standards and irreproachable personal conduct by all people in government. We shall continue our insistence on honesty as an indispensable requirement of public service. We shall continue to root out corruption whenever and wherever it appears.”
We are proud of and shall continue our far-reaching and sound advances in matters of basic human needsexpansion of social securitybroadened coverage in unemployment insurance improved housingand better health protection for all our people. We are determined that our government remain warmly responsive to the urgent social and economic problems of our people.”

These are excerpts from the Republican Party Platform of 1956. Isn’t this basically what President Obama has been saying all along? (Who knew Republican President Dwight Eisenhower was such a radical?) H/T to Planet Proctor.
My how times have changed. Just because your parents and grandparents may have always voted Republican, that is no reason to vote that way nowadays. The Republican party of today IS NOT the Republican party of your parent’s and grandparent’s time.
No kidding. I was a conservative in the 60s. My father ran near NYC on the Conservative ticket and we worked… oh, God… for Nixon. But Nixon was a liberal in comparison. These days we’d probably never know about enemies lists or breaking and entering. In fact the Repubs did break and enter in 04: Democratic computers. It was treated as a ho hum, just like lying to get us into war, torture, destroying the life of the governor of Alabama: Siegelman, because he pissed off Rove.
Yup, times have changed.
