Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Cap'n, this was for your and others education... Who was confusing what?Originally Posted by CaptainCourtesy View Post
Ah, Zim... this is all great information. I, however, reject that the Democrats who voted against all the civil rights stuff were liberals in any way shape or form. All of the Democrat policies that you mention are, ideologically, conservative by today's standards. This is why your particular argument never holds any water. You are talking about folks who are resistant to change, folks who were fairly strict constitutional constructionists, folks who jumped to the Republican party (after 1964) after many of their positions were defeated. You are confusing political party with political ideology.
Now this tidbit courtesy of Justice Thomas concerning the ruling on Campaign Finance Reform; McCain/Feingold:
Justice Thomas Defends Campaign Finance Ruling - NYTimes.com“Go back and read why Tillman introduced that legislation,” Justice Thomas said, referring to Senator Benjamin Tillman. “Tillman was from South Carolina, and as I hear the story he was concerned that the corporations, Republican corporations, were favorable toward blacks and he felt that there was a need to regulate them.”

BTW Sarah Palin just called for the resignation of rush limbaugh for using "retarded" on his program in an extremely hateful manner. Truth is stranger than fiction, sometimes.
