How The GOP Destroyed Its Moderates | The New Republic
See this is one thing that I tend to disagree with other Democrats on, I don't believe its Republican Centrism. That todays GOP is destroying, these so called Moderate Republicans, the Olympia Snowe's and Scott Brown's of the World. Who only look moderate compared with todays Neoconservative GOP, when in fact these so called Centrists, are really Goldwater,/Reagan Republicans, who want government out of the boardrooms. And bedrooms, who are Economic and Fiscally Conservative but also Socially Tolerant, who believe in things like Civil Liberties and that government shouldn't tell Americans how to live their lives. Unlike Rick Santorum Michelle Bachmann and many other Neoconservatives, who believe that government. Should set the direction in how Americans live their lives and that if anything, we have too much Social Freedom and that government should restrict and limit that.
