I don’t know that I believe they ever had beliefs or ideologies. The Republican “platform” has been nonexistent for a very long time.

Oh, Goddess, they have very strong beliefs:

1) White people are superior to all other races.
2) Capitalism is -- rightfully -- designed to concentrate the world's wealth into the fewest, most "deserving" number of hands through the -- rightful -- exploitation of the powerless.
3) Theocracy offers a useful tool in accomplishing goals given the willingness of the deluded to do any evil if they believe their "god" either demands or approves of it.
4) Women are the natural property of men.
5) War, conflict, competition reflect the only natural states of societies.
6) Winners take all, and the one with the most toys when he dies, wins.
7) People are fungible.
8) The planet is only useful until those currently in power are dead.
9) Lies work, rendering them absolutely justifiable. In fact, anything which works to accomplish the goals of the right is justifiable. "Morality" is only about sex, and even then, is only about the unworthiness of the powerless to enjoy it, or to even talk about it in public.
10) Evil is anything which thwarts our attainment of absolute power and unlimited wealth.

Close enough.
