    Yes, but the Democrats fought against it for over a century.

    They sure did. In the South. You can't be that historically ignorant to not know that Northern Democrats voted in favor of the CRA by an overwhelming margin.

    Support for the CRA was not divided on party lines; it was divided on geographic lines.

    The original House version:

    Southern Democrats: 7–87 (7–93%)
    Southern Republicans: 0–10 (0–100%)

    Northern Democrats: 145–9 (94–6%)
    Northern Republicans: 138–24 (85–15%)

    The Senate version:

    Southern Democrats: 1–20 (5–95%) (only Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
    Southern Republicans: 0–1 (0–100%) (John Tower of Texas)
    Northern Democrats: 45–1 (98–2%) (only Robert Byrd of West Virginia voted against)
    Northern Republicans: 27–5 (84–16%)

    It is just that a rather large number of my friends are homosexual and have traveled the US extensively. They say the food and hotels are good. That is why I wondered about your statement.

    Yeah, they don't run into that trouble NOW. Now, imagine them openly homosexual 50 years ago. Or black. You know, when the Civil Rights Act came about, which was what the discussion was about in the first place.

    Actually a great, great uncle of mine lived with his boy friend in NYC in the 20s. They thought is was fine. They they had good jobs, got fed at good restaurants and invited to dinner parties. Of course, they did not run about looking like Xmas trees.

    This is really a flawed poll. Dems and Repubs are partisan and ergo their responses are partisan. Only a minority should be allowed to vote on this poll. If that followed National Election trends, it would be 8 to 1 that Repubs are rascists. Probably nonsense, what the hell do a group of minorities know anyway?

    I can't imagine this poll being split exactly along party lines!

    Straw Man Logical Fallacy.

    Just because minorities, the poor and those without college degrees vote democratic does not mean that they do so because they are dependent on social programs...That is conjecture...
    More like a pretty solid theory... people vote for what helps them. Fact.

    You just will not admit that the platform of the Republican party is against almost everything that liberals believe in... Yes, it is definitely the Democrat party that is responsible for the safety net....
    Safety net? That helps make my theory. Thanks... and I admit that the Republican party is against most that liberals believe in, why wouldn't I? The Democrats are against most that conservative believe in. So what?

    I am certainly not misunderstanding you as you consistently spout conservative talking points without any proof whatsoever..
    Except I gave evidence.

    More:

    Here's the exit poll data from the 2004 election:

    Under $15,000 (8%)
    Bush 36%
    Kerry 63%

    $15-30,000 (15%)
    Bush 42%
    Kerry 57%

    $30-50,000 (22%)
    Bush 49%
    Kerry 50%

    $50-75,000 (23%)
    Bush 56%
    Kerry 43%

    $75-100,000 (14%)
    Bush 55%
    Kerry 45%

    $100-150,000 (11%)
    Bush 57%
    Kerry 42%

    $150-200,000 (4%)
    Bush 58%
    Kerry 42%

    $200,000 or More (3%)
    Bush 63%
    Kerry 35%

    Why else would poor vote Democrat than to benefit from social welfare programs!

    The Civil Rights Act wasn't exactly aimed at New York City, and it had nothing to do with gay people at all.
