The extract below is from the http://boomantribune.com blog post of December 3, 2013.  It clearly shows the steep descent of the modern-day GOP and its slim prospects for future viable relevance as a national party.

.
On November 8th, 1954, President Eisenhower wrote a letter to his brother, Edgar. It read, in part:
 
“Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”.
