    might one imagine Teddy Roosevelt joining today? The laissez-faire economics and social fascism of the Republicans? Or the conservation and protection from corporate rule of the Democrats. Hmm, that's a tough one.

    What about Lincoln?

    Eisenhower is a bit tougher, he was actually pretty conservative socially, but I can't imagine him looking at the current crop of Republicans and being much but disgusted. Military-Industrial Complex, anybody?

    None of their Party Heroes would touch them with a ten foot pole. Congratulations, assholes.

      Would find this crowd offensive enough to bolt.

        These are his spawn. He was all about shredding effective government and feeding the treasury to his buddies. Nixon might have to hold his nose, but he sure would appreciate the message control. He was, after all, the originator of the "Southern Strategy". Goldwater has already weighed in for the side of reason.
