Are you certain you want to get into a situation where all we do is insult each other? Snide is for teenage bimbos..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.
Yes, it's all about Big Business, right? But you're not a leftist. I'd probably deny it as well but in fact your words belie your claim.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.
Most civic classes and high schools are riddled with opinions rather than facts. A young scholar cannot escape them. Only after they enter the real world where facts are more readily available do they finally realize the hoaxes committed on their impressionable minds. Of course some others stay stupid until they die.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.
No, it was not. In fact its still going on today. And many Americans (Republicans) fought and died to free Black people from the bondage of slave owners (Democrats).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.
The Civil War was 150 years ago but the Democrats owned slaves well before that, which is why I mentioned 200 years.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.
