Republicans(except Reagan) have always been open about their decision & ideas, no matter how illogical & evil.
Bush had the PNAC to make war plans for him, and Trump just goes where his gut tells him with the MAGA slogan
Bush declared war on Iraq, and literally bombed Saddam's bunker, then bragged about it.
Trump Drone Strike'd Soleimani, and then bragged about it.
The Republican party supports the Military Industrial Complex, and will go the any lengths to make profits for the US War industries.(Eisenhower warned against it)
Reagan started this thing called "neo-Liberalism", which replaced the "Liberal" ideal of the US 'Democratic' Party
the government is the problem, not the solution, which means we have to take decision-making and action out of the hands of government, which has a flaw: It’s somewhat responsive to the population. We have to shift it to unaccountable, private tyrannies, which are totally unaccountable to the population.”
-Ronald Reagan's NeoLiberal propaganda, as per Noam Chomsky
The renewed neoLiberal US Democratic party identifies itself with US Espionage Industrial Complex, and will go to any lengths to make profits for the Espionage & Surveillance industries.
And yes, big names in Surveillance industry includes Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Google, Apple, Yahoo, etc, as they give your private data to the NSA/CSS for 'security purposes'.
And of Course, there is collusion between the two, like the misinfo UN was presented as evidence of WMD.
suggestion that the CIA has any sort of partisan lean to it is pretty ridiculous.
About as equally ridiculous as the claim that Democrats are somehow more secretive or shady than Republicans are. Remember Bush and the yellow cake?
Exactly ! How did Bush get the Congress to allow the war on Iraq and the 'yellow cake' ?
He let the Democrats have what they want: Consolidation of Espionage & Surveillance powers under one banner, Homeland Security.
And yes, non-DSA Democrats have become more shady under this neoliberalism banner.
