Joseph Farah has a damning editorial blasting the Republican party:
"Republican" no longer connotes smaller government, more freedom, less intrusion in our personal lives and a more vibrant economy as it did after eight years of Ronald Reagan. "Republican" today more likely connotes – even for those who tend to vote for the party – incompetence, corruption, compromise, betrayal.
Joseph Farah is from the "religious right." It has been my theory that the Republican party has been hijacked by the Christian movement and consequenly is no longer responsive to traditional Republican principles like small government and free market economics. Outlawing abortion and promoting "faith based initiatives" has become more important.
Farah is definitely one of the best thinkers from the Christian Right, and I'm glad he realizes the Republican party is no longer right wing.
