Whatever happened to personal responsibility and compassion for your neighbor?
What do you think the Republican Party is today? What do you want it to be?
You forgot an important one: the party that wants the sitting president to fail badly at every endeavor, even those endeavors that the majority of the people support.
The party has become anything Rush Limbaugh (and his ilk) say it should be, aka: the party of venomous screamers.
I'd like it to be, again, the party that upheld the Union even when that meant stepping on private businessmen's toes in the name of Equality (Lincoln).
I'd like it to be, again, the party that progressively overspent the military to end a costly cold war (Reagan).
I'd like it to be, again, the party that ended segregation in schools, used real threats against China, invested in technological research and development to benefit future Americans (one of those programs leading to 'the internet') while encouraging strong science education and investigating peaceful uses for things like nuclear energy (Eisenhower).
These are three primary reasons I registered Republican, but most of these look like Democrats these days.
