The Republican Party is one of the two major parties in America today. Modern day followers of the ideology follow mostly authoritarian rightist views, which include strict immigration, and supporting the war on drugs and terrorism. A great example of a Republican leader is Ronald Reagan, who was president from 1981-1989. He inspired a generation of young voters, and put in place the controversial reaganomics. The Republican Presidential Candidate for the 2016 race is Businessman Donald Trump, who has said many controversial things in his policies. He advocates for very strict immigration policy, and a bigger military budget to combat ISIS.
Being one of the most popular ideologies in America today, republican policy in my mind is not something I want to follow. I used to follow republicanism, but stopped after a while because of the complete harshness and war-like nature of the leaders of the party. Things like completely stopping immigration from parts of the world is unrealistic and very unconstitutional. Hypocrisy runs rampant in the party, as many claim to follow the constitution while installing several policies into law that go directly against the constitution. Overall I am fine with republican leaders, as they are to the right on the political spectrum, as I am.
