When JFK ran against Nixon in 1960, Martin Luther King, Jr supported the Republican candidate. Far from being for the working man, the Republican Party has become known as the party of the rich. Unfortunately, the Reagan Revolution transformed the party into a party of tax cuts and Jim Crow. Prior to this, Republicans prided themselves on maintaining balanced budgets and supported civil rights. After Reagan, everything changed. The Bush tax cut and Republican penchant for their spending has only bankrupted the country and the intellect of the Republican Party. Now the Norquist Luddites own the party, and the rich nuts are the only Party members who count to them. This is not sustainable to any party.
