The Party of Big Government

I haven't been around for all that long, but I do know that the Republican Party hasn't always been the way it is today. Once upon the time, in the days of Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, the GOP actually was the Grand Old Party, and it really stood for things like fiscal discipline and small government.

Those days are over. President Bush, Governor Pawlenty, and Minnesota's Republican-controlled House are the poster children for the new Republican party.

Today, the Republican Party is willing - even eager - to reach into peoples' homes and doctors offices and impede their personal decisions. Read Minnesota Politics' breakdown of the "Schiavo bill", and decide for yourself whether you want Rep. Tim Wilkin and Sen. Michelle Fishbach deciding a loved one's future, or whether you want to be able to do it yourself.

You won't find a better indictment of the GOP along those lines than in the magazine "The American Conservative". http://www.amconmag.com

I think a big political re-alignment is coming.
