The Republican Party was once the party of small government, free trade, traditional values, principled foreign policy leadership and, most important of all, adherence to the Constitution.
That was a long time ago. Who was the last “small government” Republican? Nixon? I’m not sure if it’s more amazing that someone would only now leave the GOPâ€”I left when they voted to approve torture back circa 2005â€”or that so many Republicans remain in the face overwhelming Trumpian violations of their so-called principles.
