    I have heard it said that when LBJ signed the Civil rights act he commented that it would wrap up the N_______ vote for a century for the dems.

    I suspect FDR figured creating a welfare state would create millions of dem voters in the future.

    LBJ may have been right, but FDR? Are there more Democrats now than there were during FDR's time?

    Now, if the Republicans were really for limited governmt and personal responsibility, as they claim to be, then maybe people in favor of a welfare state would vote Democrat.

    In my opinion it started with Wilson who jailed those that spoke up against World War 1, since then the authoritarianism has inched ever so slowly.

    Yeah, but he was well aware that he lost more voters than he gained by signing the Civil Rights Act.

    LBJ: "I think we have just delivered the South to the Republican Party for a long time to come."
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
