The Republican Party was founded as a political organization whose first goal was personal freedom. We were created to fight slavery, pure and simple. Abolition was the number one reason for the establishment of the Republican Party.
Over the past 16 decades and more, the Republican Party fought the Democrat Party on a variety of issues, but the core always came down to individual freedoms.
Whether our position on the New Deal and its attendant taxes, socialized medicine, abortion, free exercise of religion or a host of other issues, the GOP has always stood for individual freedom versus the collectivism and authoritarianism of the Democrats.
That trend only strengthened with the election of Ronald Reagan and the influx of former Southern Democrats who suddenly recognized the confidence game the Democrat Party was running on the American People.
Then, in 2016 Donald J. Trump became our 45th President. His “America First” agenda appealed to a broad range of Americans in particular blue collar workers, and evangelicals. President Trump swelled the ranks of the Republican Party adding 14 million new voters to the GOP.
