Well, then, doesn't it stand to reason that perhaps your view of what the Republican Party should be doesn't match what the Republican Party actually is
? You may think that the Republican Party should stand for all of those things you mentioned above, but if it doesn't, then perhaps your definition or expectations are out of date.
I'd argue that what you're seeing is exactly
what the Republican Party is nowadays. "Hijacked" by the Religious Right and Corporate America or not, the Republicans are in power in this country and this is exactly what you get with it. What you're arguing the Republican Party should be sounds nice, but it doesn't fit with reality.
