Seems like the answer is obvious.

Yep. Trickle down was such a failure the phrase "Trickle Down" is no longer used.

The people that got trickled on finally figured out how to see past that whole wealth creator|tax cuts pay for themselves bs. The question is now whether the GOP, who cannot credibly claim to care about the deficit, will compromise with Biden and go further into debt with only modest tax increases. That seems likely.

Other that tax cuts, do modern Republicans stand for anything?

The don't want the people to have affordable insurance. They don't want reasonable immigration policy. They don't want to pay for the environment. They don't want affordable internet expansion. They want abortion banned, but want to cut welfare and Medicaid at the same time. Hell, they don't want anything that will actually help the country as a whole.

Tax breaks for the wealthy and weird social freedoms (mask outrage, taking their guns) that don't matter in the least are their only desire. It's easy to see why they want to make voting more difficult...why would anyone vote for them, they do nothing.

So what is the party of no for? Smaller government? That's shot to hell with them calling any corporations that disagree with them woke and threatening government retaliation. There is also Desantis taking powers away from local governments to address gun controls and mask requirements. Fiscal reform? It doesn't even pass the laugh test anymore. Pro life? Sure but only until the baby is born into a world of no healthcare, poverty wages and no money invested in education. They are against election theft. Sure but they cannot be seen ever admitting that this last presidential election was not stolen even as they peddle solutions to a problem that never existed anywhere outside of right wing echo chambers.

So please, let me know what defines a Republican in 2021 please.

The newly minted party of the working man is going to have a real problem explaining why they fight so hard for people making over 400k and do not give a flying f about the hundreds of millions who make less than that.

The whole woke outrage thing is on them too. The only place I ever hear about these weird social quirks is on hear and Right media platforms. If it wasn't for Republicans I would never hear about straight A's as racist or California or being forced to wear masks or political correctness.

Te whole snowflake thing is a misnomer or at least it's attribution is. The modern Trump warrior is far more sensitive to any social change than any Democrat I know.

Cows, in a herd, never see where they are going,
they only see the asshole of the cow ahead of them.
and to them that's normal.
When somebodyelse tells the cows, you are in a herd following assholes,
The cow says, I never herd that before, I only ever hear that from people who are NOT following these assholes....

I see that progs are as ignorant as ever. But let me ask this. Why are the dems trying to reinstate the SALT deductions, which would be a tax break for the rich?

It's called politics. Removing outside money from elections would solve all of this very quickly.

It is a tax break for the rich, pure and simple. And the dems are trying to enact it, pure and simple. So enough of your prog BS.
