    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    The Libertarians are the best party for civil rights as they promote equal rights for all.

Republicans and Democrats have been supportive of civil rights (for most) for decades now. I say they're both the same.

    I hate it when people try to put words in my mouth.
    Maybe I inferred too much. I'm sorry for that. But I still say that using past political figures, and their parties to try and define todays parties is not using history correctly. That goes for both parties.

    Although, as a party, they're okay with abortion. That's my only problem with them.

    I was talking about historical fact, i.e. slavery. Nothing to do with today.

    Democrats support civil rights for all people through Government intervention and the worst of them will try to extend that intervention to retribution.

    Republicans support civil rights for people they believe morally acceptable and will only use the Government to deny rights.

    neither; the Libertarian Party is the better supporter of Civil Rights.

    with two notable exceptions; if you are unborn they basically say screw you, and the right to self-government, they sometimes shy from.

    And I don't think it's a misconception, just look at some of the republican ads during the 04 election.
    GASP! Not every liberal or democrat either. I believe if you go to the tale of the tape, some 70% of hispanics and blacks in California voted FOR democrats and yet AGAINST gay marriage. Yes...shocking...I know. Blows them stereotypes straight to hell.

    The Libertarian Party, of course.

    Then the Republican Party.

    Clearly not the Democrats, since they do not support the right of the individual to own property, and that's one of the most basic of all civil rights.

    Re: Which party best supports civil rights?

    I was going to say the Democrats, but then I remembered that they kept open Guantanamo Bay and I changed my mind. There has also been little headway to overturn the Patriot Act and the domestic wiretapping laws, both of which Obama said on the campaign trail were serious issues for him.

    Honestly can't say that either the GOP or the Dems support civil rights. They respect some yet refuse others. I guess the net effect is neutrality. In the grand scope, both are statist parties that expand Federal powers, they just do it through different means. They have their respective followers eating out of the palm of their hand on the hotbutton issues, and it's those that let them create more laws.

    Some regulation is needed. Some deregulation is needed. It all depends where. I wish people would realize that.
