The apparachiks in the GOP are part of the ruling class & the professional governing class. Ruling is what they do, & their basic motivations are the same as with the kleptocratic despots of the Democratic Party. They want to be part of a growth industry, so they favor growing, rather than shrinking government. Government is what they sell. We're not supposed to want less government, we're supposed to want the best guys (i.e., them) to run big government "better." They no more want to deal in limited government than Toyota or BMW want to encourage people to walk instead. We have to keep their feet to the fire, even after elections.

Removing them from DC, state and local office regularly would help.
The political parties throw a lot of glitz at us with their made-for-TV spectaculars, which we call conventions.

But the bottom line defining the choice facing Americans this year is stark and clear, and these conventions provide no new insights or information.

If you think we’re struggling because we don’t have enough government, then the Democrats are the party for you. If you think the point of government is to protect individual freedom, and the problem is it has gone way beyond that, then Republicans are the party for you.

No visual dominates the landscape...
