    YOu think it is dishonest for a business to pay as little as possible to obtain a commodity known as labor?

    You seem not to have a very good understanding of the reality of global markets

    Companies exist to make a profit for their owners. The pillowheaded utopian nonsense that corporations exist to provide people jobs is one of the reasons why this country is waning rapidly. A job is nothing more than a company obtaining the necessary commodity known as labor.

    If a company once made steel pots and pans and shifted to making only plastic or aluminium pots and pans no one would claim the company is dishonest for not renewing its contract with a steel or iron suppier.

    If a company no longer needs 100 employees but only 60 so be it. And saying it is dishonest to pay as little as possible in order to get the quantity and quality of labor it needs is as stupid as claiming a company should pay more than the going rate for steel or plastic

    How many times do I have to say this - the parties aren't monolithic, most of the southern Democrats were conservatives who often parted ways with their liberal counterparts in the North.

    Here's some more good history for you:

    Conservative coalition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I think you are mistaking what people consider themselves versus reality. Democrats can call themselves conservative, but if they expand the federal or really any role of government past necessary and proper they are not conservatives. Many of those southern votes expanded powers past what was necessary and proper, thus, not really all that conservative.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Hey, fine.

    Southern Democrats before the 1960s were mostly conservatives.

    Many of those southern votes expanded powers past what was necessary and proper, thus, not really all that conservative.
    Examples please.

    Good luck.

    The bottom line is that you're trying to establish that the South between 1860 and 1960 was teeming with liberals. It's just not going to work out.

    EDIT- I don't really know if political lean made a difference back then towards race relations either if we're being honest. But it is offensive to have people trying to assign something as disgusting as racism to a political lean to shame people away from it or smear. Let's win on ideas people, not political gotcha games.
    Sorry for jumping in this late. But if the Democrats in the south were never conservative then why did they separate from the Union to create a confederacy based on strong states rights and a weak central government?
