The Republican Party

The Stupid Party Republican Party Platform (PDF format)

I'm not going to duplicate their preamble. It does start out good ... and turns into a SOTU speech. I don't mean that the statements are false, just that they become clutter.

From the platform itself:
Protecting Human Life

The Constitution’s guarantee that no one can “be deprived of life, liberty or property” deliberately echoes the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that “all” are “endowed by their Creator” with the inalienable right to life. Accordingly, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.

We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned Parenthood, so long as they provide or refer for elective abortions or sell fetal body parts rather than provide healthcare. We urge all states and Congress to make it a crime to acquire, transfer, or sell fetal tissues from elective abortions for research, and we call on Congress to enact a ban on any sale of fetal body parts. In the meantime, we call on Congress to ban the practice of misleading women on so-called fetal harvesting consent forms, a fact revealed by a 2015 investigation. We will not fund or subsidize healthcare that includes abortion coverage.

We support the appointment of judges who respect traditional family values and the sanctity of innocent human life. We oppose the non-consensual withholding or withdrawal of care or treatment, including food and water, from individuals with disabilities, newborns, the elderly, or the infirm, just as we oppose euthanasia and assisted suicide. [and on and on]
And it does go on and on and on.

So, bad as the Republicans have become in recent years, they are still officially opposed to the Abortion Regime. BUT -- and the reason for my "[and on and on]" summation -- the Republicans are not really conservative, and they are not really for a return to the Rule of Law of the US Constitution. Look at what I have quoted above: "We will not fund or subsidize healthcare that includes abortion coverage" Under the US Constitution, it assuredly is not the place of the Federal government to "fund or subsidize healthcare" period, irrespective of the false inclusion of abortion as "healthcare".

As you can see for yourself by reading on from what I have quoted, the Republican Party isn't really opposed to feminism, and thus is not really opposed to leftism; for feminism *is* leftism. The Republicans, like "conservatives" in general, express their surrender to feminism by their abject refusal to hold any women accountable for anything she has chosen to do ... and by their vicious attacking of any man who dares even to suggest that women are moral agents equally with men. No matter what, no matter how many lives are destroyed, women must always be the "victims" (of men) in need of rescue. All this does is guarantee that huge numbers of women continue to make destructive choices.
