I was a registered Republican of the Grand Old Party. The Republicans left me when Bush was the nominee. The Republicans then became the TEAliban TEApublican Greedy Obstructionist Party. I think Teddy Roosevelt was great. Early one there was some overlap of Reagan and Teddy Roosevelt. Reagan was for unions early on but then changed. Reagan was for less income disparity and a progressive income tax rate in which the the rich paid a higher rate of taxes than middle class. The Grand Old Party became the Greedy Obstructionist Party and the TEAliban TEApublicans killed the Republican Party. A glimmer of hope for the GOP... one of it's craziest (Bachmann) is not seeking re election. But will the Greedy Obstructionist Party move towards Rooseveltian policies of the Roosevelt Progressive Party... doubtful. The extreme conservatives took over the Republican Party once before. Teddy Roosevelt formed the Progressive Party. It represented middle class rather than only the corporations… and today the Demo ...
wicked witch of west: William Mckinley. Wizard: Marcus Alonzl Hanna, chairman of the Republican Party. this is sooo cool
Abraham Lincoln "The Republican Party that was founded to liberate the slaves, and that went on to support civil rights 100 years later, over a Democrat party then still entrenched in the South that often opposed civil rights, now finds 95% of African Americans voting against it in every election. It is not that the Democrat party has delivered for black America. What it has delivered is poverty perpetuated by the slavery of welfare, rather than economic growth and prosperity lifting up from poverty." Ronald Reagan "The Reagan recovery grew into a 25-year economic boom, from 1982 to 2007, what Art Laffer and Steve Moore rightly called in their book, The End of Prosperity, “the greatest period of wealth creation in the history of the planet…. [M]ore wealth was created in America in the twenty-five year boom than in the previous two hundred years.” The economic growth during the first seven years of the boom alone was equivalent to adding the entire economy of West Germany, the third largest in the wo ...
Monday Mystery: In the 1890s, I was among the founders of the Republican Party in Tom Green Cty & backed George Noonan to become the first TX Republican to be elected to Congress after the end of Reconstruction.

One of the most memorable moments in the History Channel's rabidly pro-capitalist series, The Men Who Built America, came when predatory titans John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie decided to make Republican Party hack William Mckinley president and destroy the political career of populist Democrat William Jennings Bryan ("the Great Commoner," his day's version of Bernie Sanders). J.P. Morgan: "We have to buy our own president." Watch the video above; you'll love it. It sums up the real history of the post-Lincoln/pre-Tea Party Republican Party.
I think this letter to the editor of the Portland Press Herald by John Ross of Edgecomb and Squirrel Island, Maine makes a valid point. Share if you agree: WITHOUT OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL, NATION'S FUTURE IS BLEAK It occurs to me that the right wing of the Republican Party has thoroughly botched the intent of free-market capitalism, which is to provide an opportunity for most, not just a few. In his first term in office, soon after the assassination of his predecessor, William Mckinley, President Teddy Roosevelt looked out upon the land and saw that robber baron capitalism was oppressing the work force through back-breaking hours, terrible working conditions and meager wages. In this environment, the lower and emerging middle classes in America had virtually no hope for the future and thus the rise of unions and progressively minded politicians to right the situation. Most of us believe that hard work and sacrifice are the key elements of success. But I believe that what President Obama and the progressive .. ...
To people who think third parties don't count: - Abraham Lincoln won the 1860 election for the Republican Party (then known for pro- abolition views). Republican Party was relatively young and emerging but not yet a major party in 1860 -William Jennings Bryan had 46% of the popular vote under the 3 party banners, most notably the populist party. He lost to William Mckinley who had 51% of the vote. -Teddy Roosevelt had 29% of the popular vote in 1912 and beat the incumbent president Taft while losing to Woodrow Wilson who only had 42% of the pop vote. - Ross Perot scored as much as 19% of the popular vote in 1992, running against Clinton and George HW Bush. So there you have it, Lincoln actually won, Bryan and Roosevelt nearly won and inspired the Progressive Movement of the early 1900s and Perot resurrected a tradition of strong finishes from third party candidates.
Perspective of History: Presidential Election 1904 The United States Presidential Election of 1904 held on November 8, 1904, resulted in the election to a full term for President Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt had succeeded to the presidency upon the assassination of William Mckinley. The Republican Party unanimously nominated him for president at their 1904 national convention. During the election campaign, Roosevelt called on the voters to support his "square deal" policies. The nominee of the Democratic Party was Alton B. Parker, Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, who appealed for an end to what he called "rule of individual caprice" and "usurpation of authority" by the president. Here you find the beginnings of the modern Republican and Democratic platforms. Theodore Roosevelt easily won the election, thus becoming the first president to assume the office upon the death of a president to secure a full term of his own, a feat which would be repeated three times in the following century. Repub ...
