    Thanks. You saved me some time.

    Yeah, not all of them were racist. Yeah, some of them were. Any attempt to get more specific than that is going to be a long, drawn out, ultimately failed thread.
    Right, because the claim that "tons" of Southern Democrats switched parties, for purely racist reasons is erroneous.

    That's the claim made by by Thunder, which has brought us to where we are. That's the claim that I'm making a docs call for and so far, those making that claim have failed miserably.

    So it's an argument over what "tons" means. Like I said, it will go nowhere. The fact is that lots were racist and lots weren't, and probably plenty left for both racist and non-racist reasons. Nobody will win this.

    No, we all can figure out what, "tons", means. It obviously equates to, "a lot", "large number", "a bunch", or, "many".

    Let me help you out again: The claim was made that a lot of Southern Democrats switched parties, for racist reasons and therefore all Republicans are racists. I'm still waiting on the docs to support any part, or all of that claim.

    And it's true that tons, alot, a large number, a bunch, and many left the party due to racism.

    None of those are very precise, are they? That's why this will end badly. Don't say I didn't warn you, and don't drag me into it.

    I have already said not all Republicans are racist. Some are though. And that's as far as this will get.

    Bingo. Incredible, but true.

    I didn't claim all Republicans were racist. Only a sizable number of them are - most of them located in the deep south. Nor did I claim a 'ton' of Southern Democrats switched parties. But a hell of a lot of them did. Which is why, during national elections, the once solid Democratic South is a bright red on the political maps. This isn't rocket science.

    HINT: Opeds aren't primary source docs.
    What difference does it make? You don't accept the validity of source documents even when they are provided, as the Rebel secessionist statements were.

    Of course you're denying it. That's what this entire debate is about.

    If you honestly believe things are going well based on the welfare practices and garbage legislation that has been passed for decades with the intent on keeping crippled and dependent pets crippled, dependent, and voting democrat, then you are indeed just as big a part of the problem as are both major parties. Its idiotic of you to claim that people that believe what has happened for the last 30 years is destrictive and not at ALL helpful to minorites or low income folks in general are racist and want to see minorities oppressed...but somehow...frankly...you and 'idiotic' are a perfect match. Some of us do more and put our time and resources into actually helping folks than people that whine and bitch and call us 'racist' can ever conceive or will ever do. So...take your idiotic insinuation of racism and choke on em. Or if it makes you feel better...revel in them.
