Outrageous. Typical Republican propaganda to claim that raising taxes is really more important to Democrats than killing babies. Every decent rational person knows that killing babies is top priority, even if it means keeping a couple taxes unraised.
The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.

Keeping the electoral college is obviously a point of emphasis for the right wing, now that winning the most votes is impossible.

You overestimate the US voting public.
You know I'm going to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it
Baby, I don't want to live forever.

Maybe if you joined it, it would be a little better -_-

Most of this was the actual Republican platform circa 1860.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

"I love how Raz just becomes the caricature for exactly what he is claiming doesn't actually exist...and he doesn't even know it! He is 100% oblivious to the irony of his own statements." - Berkut telling a lie.

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

No it wasn't.

The ones I can see some truth to are:

raise taxes: Republicans in 1860 did support higher tariffs to protect industry, and temporary taxes to support the war effort (when that started the following year).
open borders: there had never been an immigration law in US history. I don't think you can really call the republicans in 1860 an especially pro immigrant party, however - they introduced and passed the country's first immigration exclusion bills the following decade.
suppress free speech: I guess you can make a case they did suppress free speech while putting down a rebellion.
There's a fine line between salvation and drinking poison in the jungle.

I'm embarrassed. I've been making the mistake of associating with you. It won't happen again. :)

The Republicans were partially created by the No-Nothings so they always had anti-immigrant tendencies. Besides, immigrants were the northern Democrats' base.
