    I am talking also talking about violent crime rates in U.S. cities, per 1,000 residents - in this case the lower the number the safer the city is for each given category of violent crime.

    Phoenix ----- Murder 0.08 Rape 0.38 Robbery 2.27 Assault 2.79

    Chicago ----- Murder 0.16 Rape ??? Robbery 5.17 Assault 4.59

    Philadelphia -- Murder 0.21 Rape 0.54 Robbery 5.37 Assault 5.77

    Dallas ------- Murder 0.11 Rape 0.35 Robbery 3.33 Assault 3.03

    Houston ----- Murder 0.09 Rape 0.36 Robbery 3.77 Assault 5.56
    You keep proving my point for me, the higher the poverty the more dangerous the city is.

    Thanks for that, I guess.

    This is about as stupid of a answer as I've seen in a while. Yes, Democrats did have plantations and the Republicans were the ones who wanted to their freedom, and then the two switched. To equate slavery to liberalism is something only a shill for the GOP would do.

    ...and it has been demonstrated that the higher the black population, the higher the crime rate. What are the demographics of the most dangerous cities in america?
    High crime rates causes businesses and (taxpaying) citizens to abandon the city, which lowers property values and diminishes tax revenue...which encourages more taxpayers and businesses to abandon the city.

    Oh please....Today's democrats revel in the opportunity to string platitudes, and lies together for "underserved" communities that they can parade out like some sick circus at election time...How many times will these "underserved" continue to hear these same lies before they realize it is those they keep voting into power that are lying to them?

    And then the two switched, huh? I've heard that story often but have never seen the evidence. Instead we continue to see racism and exploitation from the Democrats all the way down the line, and it continues today. The facts just keep piling up.

    But at least you acknowledge that the Democrats were on the wrong side of history for almost 200 years. Some leftists don't even admit that.

    Exactly. It is, in fact, the other way around.

    Agreed. It's almost like Stockholm Syndrome on a grand scale.

    That would be because I'm not a leftist? Or whatever imaginary term you want to use to make yourself feel better.

    There is plenty of evidence if you'd bother to read it, I can see why you wouldn't want to though. After all when you support a political party, as apparently you do, I'd hate to read how the once grand ol party stood for freedom and now despises it. Here is just one of the dozens of links available to you. I'll quote a few key sections.

    Democrats & Republicans switch platforms

    Republicans didn't immediately adopt the opposite position of favoring limited government. "Instead, for a couple of decades, both parties are promising an augmented federal government devoted in various ways to the cause of social justice," Rauchway wrote in a 2010 blog post for the Chronicles of Higher Education. Only gradually did Republican rhetoric drift to the counterarguments. The party's small-government platform cemented in the 1930s with its heated opposition to the New Deal.

    Both parties tried to exploit the discontent this generated, by promising the little guy some of the federal largesse that had hitherto gone to the business sector. From this point on, Democrats stuck with this stance — favoring federally funded social programs and benefits — while Republicans were gradually driven to the counterposition of hands-off government.

    From a business perspective, Rauchway pointed out, the loyalties of the parties did not really switch. "Although the rhetoric and to a degree the policies of the parties do switch places," he wrote, "their core supporters don't — which is to say, the Republicans remain, throughout, the party of bigger businesses; it's just that in the earlier era bigger businesses want bigger government and in the later era they don't."
    There are several more that repeat the same information with different wording but the idea is the same. Businesses at one time wanted government over sight to help them build their companies, once they were done they switched parties loyalty to get want they wanted again, IE Lobbyists, this time in the form of supposedly "wanting smaller federal oversight" after they had already taken advantage of the government help to begin with.

    Really, this should be a basic civics course for nearly all high schools around the country, maybe into college but US History should be an educational requirement.

    I guess I'm unsure what you mean wrong side of history since the US was one of the last places to remove owning of humans for workers. However; if you wish to nitpick that much you'll be pleased to know it was only around 150 yrs or so. It does seem fitting that the GOP would be on the wrong side of history concerning civil rights when they supposedly supported them 200 or so years ago.
