    The Republican party has had nothing against Keynsian philosophy. It was Lincoln who expanded railroad grants, and Eisenhower who built much of the highway system. Although the party has always favored the rich through its policies, it was not until the days of Barry Goldwater when it adopted the "small government" attitude.

    Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.
