I saw an interview with David Eisenhower and Julie Nixon Eisenhower on Sunday Morning. They were saying how neither of their dads would have been considered a conservative today nor would they even be chosen as a candidate by the Republican party. According to David and Julie, they were both too "moderate" and even "liberal" in comparison with today's Republican candidates.
How did the Republican party get to where it is today? What happened to the moderates? Why this right extremism?
