My dad could've become a Mason but he joined the Kiwanis club, instead. I think he might've did that just to spite my grandfather. They didn't get along very well. My dad would've been a fourth or fifth generation railroad man but my grandfather who had a management position fired him on the spot for mouthing off to him in front of his peers... and that broke the generational chain of working for the railroad. It was only recently that I learned the truth of that because growing up my dad always told me he quit.
    We do have something in common! My maternal grandfather was a Mason also. The Masonic symbol was etched into his gravestone right above his name. I swear my granddaddy is buried at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond VA but if you looked at the stone you would swear he lived in North Carolina his entire life, if you didn't know better. He was born in Louisburg, just outside Raliegh and died at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem.

    The south votes for southerners and up until Obama won in 2008 the presidency could not be won without the southern vote. When the south realized they no longer held that advantage over the country....they went ballistic. Shout downs at town halls, tea parties, fear mongering....you name it.

    The South doesn't take defeat lightly.

    Cool story. Unfortunately you are simply curve fitting. Nixon won in 1968 without carrying the south, and carried the south in 1972 without a Southerner on the ticket. Reagan defeated the southerner Carter in 1980 and it wasn't because of a Texan on the ticket.

    You are left trying to argue that Reagan won because Bush was a southerner... but Bush lost to Clinton because Clinton was a Southerner...

    The rest if just imagination built on top of your faulty premise.

    Or you checked and can't admit you are wrong.



    Gosh, you're trying to reduce the politics of the South to a modern equivalent "progressive big government types" and it's just ignorant, as is the ridiculous notion that conservatism "didn't exist" in the South before Reagan.

    And I'd love to know your definitions of a "progressive" in 1950. It sure as hell isn't the same definition as in 2015. Same with "conservative." You've made up a definition in your own mind, and then concluded that your made up definition excludes white southerners before St. Ronnie.
    Let me introduce you to the word "Progressivism" since you don't seem to be familiar with it. THis "better people through government and science" ideology brought us eugenics, and abortion mills, and a host of other horrors that always seem to fail at their objective but are still defended vehemently by the true believers.

    And no, these words have a consistent meaning, you just choose to ignore their actual meaning in favor of making one up o suit your narrative.



    Ok, you could be right that KKK types affiliate with the party home to nearly all elected blacks, a black POTUS at the top, and that blacks vote for nearly 100% of the time, and also the party that is openly friendly to gays and supports gay rights. If there is one thing racists love it's the gays. Regular open arm types, live and let live in that category in my experience.....
    You need to keep up with the modern Klan. Progressivism and anti-Semitism is the driving force these days.

    Sorry, but I don't have any idea, or what your point is. I haven't thought about the guy for years.
    You were the one who argued that Democrats don't have to worry about this anymore. Farrakahn votes Democrat. Current KKK membership is estimated at about 5,000 while the Nation of Islam is between 20,000 and 50,000. And we haven't even gotten into the racist Hispanic group The Race yet...

    Democrats are still steeped in racism to this day. Racist groups of all skin colors find a home there.

    Really? I've never heard that mentioned one time ever, not ever referred to, etc. You getting your news from Glenn Beck? Subscribe to his channel or whatever?
    What is Planned Parenthood if not selective breeding? And what is the goal of selective breeding if not physical and social improvment?

    Woo boy, are you in denial or what?
