How did republicans go from the party of family values, to the party of child molesters so quickly?

This is really sad. It was just a few years ago that family and morals was the top of the list when it came to importance. I don't even know what would be at the top of the platform now.

Money, I guess.

The moral majority was never the real moral majority. They just needed that religious veneer to dress up their bigotry.

Not really. The democrats have been kicking out anyone they hear has been accused. The republicans try to get them elected more often. It's scary.

What's even crazier is the republicans, who just weeks ago were calling for Franken to resign, are now pissed that Franken resigned. What gives?

It seems like they just wanted someone on the democratic side to have been accused also so they could use that as a reason to let Moore in. If it's ok for them it's ok for us kind of a thing.

How do we change things then ? How do we get to the point where politicians are just doing what their constituents want, not trying to make millions being a politician?

The focus went from being moral (if it ever was) to the evangelical focus of dictating how people live. They lost sight of the constitution and decided we need to be a white Christian country. Hopefully that will implode sooner than later.
