      until he ran for president?

      No.

    •  Eisenhower? A Conservative? (0+ / 0-)

      Big government spending, anti military industrial complex pro-civil rights Eisenhower was a conservative?

      Somebody's compass is broken...

      I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the Republican Party.

        TR, of course, more recently: Rockefeller (if you ignore the drug laws), the honorable Romney (not his lying son), John Lindsay, and dozens of other elected national Republicans were still conservatives, not reactionaries, not racists, not fools. Even Robert Taft, isolationist though he was, was far better than recent Republicans from Ohio.

        The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.
