Not almost, that's exactly what happened.No doubt in the 50 and 60's the southern dems were bigots, now the dem party is the party of minorities. Almost like the earth changing is polarity?
That's what makes Prof's post such an embarrassing joke -- it's like he's totally unaware that the 1960s dems were a different party. The Prof apparently didn't take U.S. History.
More facts Prof apparently didn't know.]That being said, can we really say that parties don't change? e.g. 50's and 60's, the dems were the war mongers? Chicago PD/Dem Daley beats protesters up @ the 68 dem convention.
Great post. The Prof needs to back to school.
"A Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican"
Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.
All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.
Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.
Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn’t think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune....

Oh, what a distance we have come today and how poorly educated many people are when it comes to the basic principles upon which this country was founded!
Interesting how today liberals believe people are owed a job for life, they are owed all these benefits, and they are owed getting paid first withouth any monetary investment in the business. The corner market owner, dry cleaner, drug store, hardware store owner, etc. has to pay for these expenses and they simply cannot do it yet that is ok to these so called progressives.
I am convinced that "feel good" rhetoric trumps history, economics, and civics.
Let me let you in on a little secret, when liberalism runs these small businesses out of business there will be no one left to fund all these programs that so called progressives promote.
This country was built on equal opportunity, not equal outcome. Businesses are in business to make a profit, not to employ people for life. When I read comments on this board I fear for our country because now equal outcome means redistribution of wealth and a guaranteed job for life and none of that was ever guaranteed by our Founders.
Where is my govt. handout? Oh, wait, my taxdollars paying for what I need? Why don't I just keep it and spend it on what I need? No, that would be unfair to others and after all it is all about fairness. I am obviously not paying my "fair share" to others whereas the 47% that don't pay any Federal Income taxes obviously are. Wonder why it is that liberals never define "fair share?"
To hear Sarah Palin say the words "All men are created equal" is just sickening. Yes Sarah to you all men are created equal except gays and muslims right?
since the 60's, it may be true, the dems have begun to catch up with the gop on civil rights
but the legacy of the party of jackson, polk and wilson on questions of race is shameful
live with it
