I'll grant you there was once a time the Republican Party was more liberal than the Democratic Party. (In fact, I read the other day that in the 1870s, MA was solidly Republican while New Hampshire was solidly Democratic.) But, if we look at right-wingers without regard to party, they have fared very badly. They were for slavery They were for segregation They were against the women's vote They were against equal rights for women They were against blacks participating in professional sports They were against interracial marriage They were against Social Security They were against minimum wage They were against child labor laws They were against the FDA, OSHA, and other agencies that protect us They were against civil rights and voting rights They were against collective bargaining They were against legal aid for the poor They were against environment cleanup They were against abortion (and just lost a major battle in South Dakota) They were against stem cell research (and just lost a major battle in Missouri) Today, they are against gay rights, but as Massachustts, Arizona, and New Jersey, and hundreds of cities and towns, have shown, they are on the losing side of that battle. Though that battle is still young, every year gays take new steps towards achieving equality. Be a loser. Hold onto the mythical past. Stay right wing.
