    Actually, history teaches us a different story. Democrats once had what was called the Solid South, and it lasted until President Johnson sent troops and federal agents in to investigate and prosecute the Mississippi Burning episode, when 3 civil rights workers were murdered by the law, when churches throughout the South were set on fire, and when lynchings were an everyday practice. And then the Civil Rights Bill was passed into law. A few racist Democrats, like Byrd, stayed with the party, but the vast majority of them became Republicans. The Democrats' Solid South disappeared like a fart in the wind. Nixon became the first president in a long time to carry the South, and it was for that very reason.

    Well, Dan, I was kidding, but I appreciate the information nevertheless.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Early campaigns

    Duke first ran for the Louisiana State Senate as a Democrat from a Baton Rouge district in 1975. In 1979, he ran as a Democrat for the 10th District Senate seat and finished second in a three-candidate race with 9,897 votes (26 percent).[16] Duke allegedly conducted a direct-mail appeal in 1987, using the identity and mailing-list of the Georgia Forsyth County Defense League without permission. League officials described it as a fund-raising scam.
    [edit] 1988 Democratic Presidential Campaign

    In 1988, Duke ran initially in the Democratic presidential primaries. His campaign failed to make much of an impact, with the one notable exemption of winning the little known New Hampshire Vice-Presidential primary.[17] Duke, having failed to gain much traction as a Democrat, then successfully sought the Presidential nomination of the Populist Party.[18] He appeared on the ballot for President in eleven states and was a write-in candidate in some other states, some with Trenton Stokes of Arkansas for Vice President, and on other state ballots with Floyd Parker for Vice President. He received just 47,047 votes, for 0.04 percent of the combined, national popular vote.

    Duke's views prompted some of his critics (including Republicans) to form the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism, which directed media attention to Duke's statements of hostility to blacks and Jews.

    Despite repudiation by the Republican Party,[41] Duke ran for Louisiana Governor in 1991.

    The interest group, the Louisiana Coalition against Racism and Nazism, rallied against the election of Duke as governor. Among its leaders was Beth Rickey, a moderate member of the Louisiana Republican State Central Committee and a Ph.D. student at Tulane University, who began to follow Duke to record his speeches and expose what she saw as instances of racist and neo-Nazi remarks.

    Barborshop was a good movie.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
