Republican party, circa 1956

Republican Party Platform of 1956

This is what had to say about it:

"By these standards, modern Democrats have become Republicans, and modern Republicans have become batshit crazy. I think I’ve heard Kucinich mention Taft-Hartley, but you get a blank stare if you mention it to anybody under the age of 40. And to think that it used to be a topic of polite conversation among the political classes only 54 years ago."

This: has TL;DR.

Incidentally, I am hearing that the health care reform passed by Obama is very, very similar to the Republican counter-offer to the Clinton health plan.
