What does the GOP do?



  1. 0 Votes

    The GOP, more formally known as the ‘Grand Old Party,’ represents the Republican Party. However, it has attracted criticism due to its somewhat antiquated and subjective name. It also is commonly misinterpreted by the general public, and there are plenty of people who aren’t aware that the GOP is indicative of the Republican party.

    If you’re referring to the actual objectives of the GOP, it can summarized rather easily: less government intervention, less spending, and greater liberty (although liberty is open to interpretation). In regards to operational campaign costs, that duty falls to the Republican National Committee (RNC).

    I think it’s fair to say that the GOP has, since at least the 70’s, been the political party that has most presided over the nation’s economic and cultural decline.  They’ve essentially established the tone and set the agenda in Washington (and the world via the IMF and the World Bank) ever since the demise of true liberalism in the 60s. It’s impossible to spell out my reasoning here, so I’ll direct you to Kevin Phillips’s penetrating American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century (you’ll have to get past the cumbersome title) and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich’s entire oeuvre, particularly Supercapitalism and The Resurgent Liberal. Both authors are clear-eyed and intellectually honest thinkers, although Reich is a liberal and served under the Clinton administration. Phillips is, in fact, a former Republican strategist.
