What good is the Republican Party?
Nowadays not much, if any. Thom Hartmann reviews the Party's history and notes that early on it actually did the country some good. E.g., it was part of the anti-slavery movement. It invented income tax. Teddy Roosevelt railed against the 1%. Eisenhower provided government funding for schools and infrastructure. None of that is now recognizable in that Party, whose sole purpose is kowtowing to that 1% and destroying the rest of us and democracy along with it. Hartmann is right that it's time for this defunct Party to go extinct before they destroy the rest us and the planet.
