Not your father's Republican Party

This sums up the ex-party of small government perfectly.

Here's an "off the top of my head" list of ways the GOP has learned to stop worrying and love big government:
War on Drugs
Increased regulation of the Internet/War on Porn
Support for a Constitutional amendment defining marriage
National prescription drug plan
More welfare for farmers
Increase in federal government meddling in education
Huge budget deficits
Regulation of free speech (McCain-Feingold)
Please feel free to add to this list in the comments.

(Hat tip to Sullivan.)

The stated principles of the Republican Party are still small government, personal responsibility, low taxes, and strong national defense.

One out of four ain't bad.

Sounds about right. I'll think about additions to the list.

How 'bout putting an end to Due Process.

Silence on Eminent Domain abuse.

There are, no doubt, more.
