This is only part of it (they cover MANY more topic other than just Foreign Policy). I've deleted some sentences because it's long. See the link for the entire Republican Party Platform in 1960.



Foreign Policy​

The Republican Party asserts that the sovereign purpose of our foreign policy is to secure the free institutions of our nation against every peril, to hearten and fortify the love of freedom everywhere in the world, and to achieve a just peace for all of anxious humanity.

The pre-eminence of this Republic requires of us a vigorous, resolute foreign policy—inflexible against every tyrannical encroachment, and mighty in its advance toward our own affirmative goals.

...

The countries of the free world have been benefited, reinforced and drawn closer together by the vigor of American support of the United Nations, and by our participation in such regional organizations as NATO, SEATO, CENTO, the Organization of American States and other collective security alliances. We assert our intention steadfastly to uphold the action and principles of these bodies.

We believe military assistance to our allies under the mutual security program should be continued with all the vigor and funds needed to maintain the strength of our alliances at levels essential to our common safety.

...

Recently we have noted Soviet Union pretexts to intervene in the affairs of newly independent countries, accompanied by threats of the use of nuclear weapons. Such interventions constitute a form of subversion against the sovereignty of these new nations and a direct challenge to the United Nations.

The immediate strategy of the Soviet imperialists is to destroy the world's confidence in America's desire for peace, to threaten with violence our mutual security arrangements, and to sever the bonds of amity and respect among the free nations.

To this end we will continue to support and strengthen the United Nations as an instrument for peace, for international cooperation, and for the advancement of the fundamental freedoms and humane interests of mankind.

...

The Republican Party reaffirms its determination to use every peaceful means to help the captive nations toward their independence, and thus their freedom to live and worship according to conscience. We do not condone the subjugation of the peoples of Hungary, Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Albania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, and other once-free nations. We are not shaken in our hope and belief that once again they will rule themselves...

Forget it... Republicans in the 1960s, or even 1980s and 1990s, have no association to the Putin owned, Trump or Marjorie Taylor Greene or Matt Gaetz electing, pick Russia over our European allies, FoxNews conspiracy theory pimping Republican Party of today.
 
That was when most Republicans were not brain-washed by the likes of Alex Jones and Fox-thing. I actually agreed with most of their thoughts.
Now I talk to a right-wing person and I get something like: "Libs want to take all the guns away and put them on Saturn or Schools are teaching
our children how to perform oral-sex! It's like some powerful magic force gave them weirdness pills.

But it will be interesting to see how similar Joe Biden's state of the Union is tonight to the R platform from 1960.
 
Read the 1980 Republican platform... It was day and night from the current Republican Party..
