When did the GOP become so Democrat???

I just watched the Libertarian response to the State of the Union that Glenn Beck had on his Facebook Page. I really didn’t get how far off track the GOP has gotten, until I watched the clip below. This clip made me realize that we have been playing defense with Democrats for the last 25 years and because of that, our party platform has become so convoluted. The idea of small government, cutting spending, de-funding unnecessary federal departments, school choice, focusing on our own borders, punishing crime that should be punished-not for political purposes, and bringing the power back to the people….has been lost.

Now before you freak out and think I am a total Libertarian, I think the question should be-when did the Republican Party become so Democrat? And when did our core Conservatives values become a thing of the past? Because the Republican Party once stood for everything that is mentioned in this speech below. Now I know the pro-life issue is argued to not be Libertarian, but I argue that it totally can be, in fact I wrote a whole blog on why a Libertarian could/should be pro-life just about a month ago.
