Yes, Lincoln's policies were ideologically equivalent to the modern GOP's
No, Lincoln's policies were not consistent to the modern GOP's
That has nothing to do with my argument. The "lie" is the portrayal republicans being racist because they don't support minority agendas.Originally Posted by aberrant85
Racist remarks, or biased remarks?Originally Posted by aberrant85
Please look up the definition of "racism." You may also want to look at similar terms like bigot, racialism, prejudice, etc. and see which ones fit best.
Agreed. Democrats were primarily racists, there were very few republicans that held office in the south as well. there were probably 10 democrats for every republican. Just guessing, not taking the time to look it up.Originally Posted by aberrant85
Is that racism, or because of culture?Originally Posted by aberrant85
How about a third option. Blacks are taught the white man is the cause of their problems. They are not told to take hold of life and take responsibility for themselves. No, the democrats keep them at bay by telling them they are victims.Originally Posted by aberrant85
This is why republicans are the right party for free blacks.Originally Posted by aberrant85
They don't coddle them like children, lie to them about who's at fault. Republicans judge blacks by their character, and not the color of their skin. Democrats judge people by the color of their skin.
I did not make that reply until I went to all those links.
Thanks for wasting my time. Next time I will ignore those useless links unless you provide a quote, or somehow indicate a passage.
Look at the date of that first one, and look at my words indicating time frames.
I already said the date of the first one above. I provided a synopsis of what we know. I gave you the links with the pertinent information, exactly there, if you would read it.
The only thing I can gather from this is that you actually didn't spend time on the source material, or just didn't want to admit your assertions had serious limitations.
No one should accuse a libertarian of being willing to learn.

Democrats don't call themselves "The party of Andrew Jackson."
It was LBJ who said "there goes the South for a generation" (to Republicans) when the Civil Rights Act was passed and then it worsened with court ordered busing. That strange court ruling by the Supreme Court that they cannot order states to fairly distribute school money so then had to move the children instead by buses is what more likely turned the South solidly Republican in presidential elections.
