What are you really saying, Mr. Cavuto?
In the video linked here, Fox's Neil Cavuto editorializes on how the Republican Party lost its way.
I bet there's many who think themselves conservative who nod in agreement at what's said here, failing to note Cavuto, by his choice of examples, seems to suggest that the party should take a more "progressive" course. No, I'm not saying national parks or food inspections are a bad thing. But apply some context.
The same era that delivered the first national parks and food inspections also created the Federal Reserve and took away the state legislatures' power to appoint senators. Many of the pitfalls the country has fallen into in recent years can directly be traced back to the latter two events.
