What’s the Point of the GOP?

By Jeffery Dover

It begins with our expectations.  When we cast a vote for a representative of some office, we vote with an expectation that the person, if elected, will follow through with what they told us they would do if elected.  However, as often as not, we’ve been disappointed in that regard.  Perhaps even more often than not…
