Summing It Up

Commenter BoiseBoy on this post has a masterful summary:
Honest Question. What exactly does the Republican Party do for our country other than screw it up? They cut taxes for billionaires, run up the debt like drunken frat boys, start wars, limit freedom (marriage equality, reproductive choice, harsh prohibitions, mass incarceration, etc.), eliminate corporate regulation (which in turn causes situations like banks operating like casinos and causing the housing crash / Great Depression), make delusional Supreme Court decisions (like Citizen's United), obstruct and block anything that would actually help citizens, fight with one another to see who can be more reactionary, repress the ability for people to vote, deprive the poor of any semblance of dignity or sustainability, trash teachers and the higher education system, give credence to lunatics like Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and Ted Nugent, the list just goes on.
