    Pretty sad.
    I'm obviously smart enough to remember the true history of the Democrat party. Earth to MM, my whole family were Democrats and hated the party because it wasn't conservative enough, some switched to Republican but others stayed with the D because they didn't want to be thought of as voting for the "rich people's party", heaven forbid they learn the history of the economic enrichments of the past.

    Apparently he doesn't have to throw anything better at you since you can't handle what you've already got. All you did was complain about the tactic - you didn't defend your position or refute with facts anything said. So there's really no need for smarter, is there.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The minimum wage was pushed by dem union bosses in the north to prevent blacks migrating towards northern industry from undercutting the white unions. Jim Crow was more about political rights. But the fact remains, many "laws" that you lefties cherish have racist roots, such as the Davis-Bacon Prevailing wage laws and the post Civil War gun control laws-first aimed at Blacks (in the south) and "Papist" immigrants in the North

    Sure ....

    The right give themselves tax breaks at the expense of the middle class. The right tends to suck off business and business owners. The right favors corporate welfare while completely belittling social welfare programs for people.

    Then the right acts suprised that nobody likes them or their ridiculous anti-people policies.

    Horse****, it's used as a vote leveraging agent like anything else. The MW is demonstrably worthless as it never keeps up with inflation and constantly leads to cost increases. By it's very nature it invalidates itself.

    Actually, the most loopholes in the taxcode were written by Democrats.

    - Pick up a history book why don't you?

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Democrats]Southern Democrats - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    In the early 1800s, they were the definitive pro-slavery wing of the party, opposed to both the anti-slavery Republicans (GOP) and the more liberal Northern Democrats. After losing control of their party and territory in the American Civil War, and during the Republican-led Reconstruction that followed, Southern Democrats regrouped into various vigilante organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan and the White League.

    Eventually "Redemption" was finalized in the Compromise of 1877 and the Redeemers gained control throughout the South. As the New Deal began to liberalize Democrats as a whole, Southern Democrats largely stayed as conservative as they had always been, with some even breaking off to form farther right-wing splinters like the Dixiecrats. After the Civil Rights Movement successfully challenged the Jim Crow laws and other forms of institutionalized racism, and after the Democrats as a whole came to symbolize the mainstream left of the United States, the form, if not the content, of Southern Democratic politics began to change. At that point, most Southern Democrats defected to the Republican Party, and helped accelerate the latter's transformation into a more conservative organization
    When Richard Nixon courted voters with his Southern Strategy, many Democrats became Republicans and the South became fertile ground for the GOP, which conversely was becoming more conservative as the Democrats were becoming more liberal. However, Democratic incumbents still held sway over voters in many states, especially those of the Deep South. In fact, until the 1980s, Democrats still had much control over Southern politics. It wasn't until the 1990s that Democratic control collapsed, starting with the elections of 1994, in which Republicans gained control of both houses of Congress, through the rest of the decade. Southern Democrats of today who vote the Democratic ticket are mostly urban liberals. Rural residents tend to vote the Republican ticket, although there are a sizable number of conservative Democrats.
    Modern day Southern Republicans are former Democrats in red clothes.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    So why was your whole family Democrats in the first place?

    If they thought the party wasn't conservative enough, why didn't they become Republicans years earlier? What made them all change their minds? And when did they do it - some time after the mid-1960s, perhaps?
