Oh I think people know what the GOP is for:
• starting wars
• BIG government
• crony capitalism/mercantilism/fascism
• Keynesianism with a tax cut on top
The same things the Democrats are for, except the bold. They just spend their money on different parts of all those things. And GOP, if you look at their history have supported BIG government since Lincoln.
Now, the grassroots such as you and I, we aren't for those things...except perhaps the mainstreamers are for starting wars.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
