The New Republicans

By Stump Connolly

          I grew up a Republican, a right-wing Republican. I mean a tip of the feathers right-wing Republican. I watched movies in school about a Red Menace spreading across the globe until the United States “falls like an overripe fruit into our hands.” My mother ran the local John Birch Society bookstore.
