Below is a conservative political platform I could support. The following were taken from the 1956 Republican Party Platform. These show just how much the Republican Party has been bastardized by the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Beck, Palin, Gingrich, etc.

The Republican Party

We are proud of and shall continue our far-reaching and sound advances in matters of basic human needs--expansion of social security--broadened coverage in unemployment insurance --improved housing--and better health protection for all our people.

On the environment:

We favor a comprehensive study of the effect upon wildlife of the drainage of our wetlands.

We recognize the need for maintaining isolated wilderness areas.

On the regulation of business:

A continuously vigorous enforcement of anti-trust laws

Legislation to enable closer Federal scrutiny of mergers which have a significant or potential monopolistic connotations

Procedural changes in the antitrust laws to facilitate their enforcement.

On protections for America's workforce:

Stimulate improved job safety of our workers, through assistance to the States, employees and employers

Continue and further perfect its programs of assistance to the millions of workers with special employment problems, such as older workers, handicapped workers, members of minority groups, and migratory workers

Strengthen and improve the Federal-State Employment Service and improve the effectiveness of the unemployment insurance system

Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of Sex

Clarify and strengthen the eight-hour laws for the benefit of workers who are subject to federal wage standards on Federal and Federally-assisted construction, and maintain and continue the vigorous administration of the Federal prevailing minimum wage law for public supply contracts

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public
