I think you're right, I can't, off the top of my head, think of anything original that Republicans have done in recent history. It seems like their entire position is to dismantle and undo things Democrats have done. Don't get me wrong, there are things that need to be undone but you'd think there would be a few original thoughts mixed in there as well.
That's not how reactionary politics work though.
They just keep rolling history back further and further, because they've been lied to about the answer being in the past when the problem is in the present, and the solution is in the future. If we just erase gay people, ban abortions, outlaw interracial marriages, and bring back segregation then white people are going to be just as well off as they were in the 50s.
Fascism works by blaming social change for an unfair economic system, as a way to protect the economic system from criticism. It's not that the system is failing you, it's that Jews/Mexicans are exploiting the system. You're supposed to be higher in the hierarchy, but sneaky and malicious outsiders took your place. It can't be that the hierarchical system itself is flawed.
