Yes of course the GOP is pro-oligarchy and pro-war. In many ways they’re worse than Dems and in a few ways (marginal resistance to Syrian interventionism & senseless escalations with Russia, for example) they are occasionally better. I don’t write about the GOP; there are plenty of millionaire pundits who are paid immense sums of money to do that and it’s like shooting fish in a barrell. I criticize the Democratic party from a leftist perspective because not enough people do that and because they are a right-wing party that has monopolized the space where leftist politics ought to be; if they actually advanced their platform instead of kowtowing to the military industrial complex and the oligarchs the Republicans would have no power.
