This may be an old cartoon but all it proves is the Republican Party agenda has not changed.
When I first came to America I knew about Republicans and Democrats and, to be honest, there didn't seem to be as wide a gap between them as the one I was used to between the Conservative Party and the Labor (Labour) Party in England.
Over 23 years I have become more educated in American politics and have also seen this situation change.
It took me a while to figure out where the GOP came into things. Then I had it explained to me that this was simply another name for Republicans and stood for The Grand Old Party. I'm sure some Europeans are puzzled to this day.
Well, knowing what I know now, I'd like to suggest that it's time to drop the G.
There is nothing Grand about robbing the poor to give to the rich.
There is nothing Grand about stripping away rights that were fought for over decades by organized labor.
There is nothing Grand about ignoring separation of Church and State and giving god a seat in Congress.
There is nothing Grand about preaching family values while fucking anything that moves.
There is nothing Grand about seeing healthcare as a profit opportunity rather than a right.
There is nothing Grand about being so comfortable with lies you forget when you're telling them.
There is nothing Grand about putting forward candidates who are jokes and are insults to this country.
There is nothing Grand about being against anything a president does just because he's black.
I suggest it be known from now on as the SOP. Same Old Party. With the emphasis on Old.
