Farewell to the Once Great “Party of Lincoln”!

From Jack Jodell at The Saturday Afternoon Post:

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
– Sir John Dalberg-Acton –

It has been in the making for a long time now, but with the near-election of Republican-supported, accused pedophile Roy Moore two days ago to the U,S, Senate from the state of Alabama, the once-great party of Lincoln has all but ceased to exist. Sure, they still call themselves the Republican Party, but they do not resemble even one bit Republicans I have known since my earliest days near the end of the Eisenhower administration. Exen worse, they do not at all resemble the party that elected Lincoln back in 1860! They have increasingly shifted further and further rightward, to the point where they have now all but fallen off of the political table. Prudence and caution have been replaced by impulsive recklessness, nativistic jingoism, and pseudo-evangelism. All I can say to this is a very disgusted “good riddance!”

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
