    Which party best supports civil rights?

    There has been some talk of this on the forum so I decided to make a poll/thread about it.

    Do you think the Democrat party properly supports civil rights?
    Do you think the Republican party properly supports civil rights?
    Neither?
    Both?

    Please explain your reasons.

    I think there are plenty of laws in place to assure everyone their civil rights. So my answer comes more from "Whose agenda best fosters civil rights?" My answer would be Republicans. Democrats want to extend their reach and power by giving away the candy store. Republicans are more about maintaining an equal playing field.

    Democratic Party because there many people on the right that agree with John Stossel.

    Check the following poll:

    The majority of republicans are against SSM, and LGBT rights. That's the biggest civil rights movement of today IMO. So I would say democrats.

    Gov. Schwartzenegger is a staunch supporter of SSM. Is your statement a fact or opinion? I'm a Republican. I support those things. Misconception...or reality. I don't know.

    The dem party is generally hostile to second amendment rights-rights clearly spelled out in the constitution and cherished by the founders

    the dem party is more hostile to free speech than the GOP--"the fairness doctrine" is pushed by the dems. In almost every case you hear of where a college newspaper is trashed or a speaker is heckled, it involves dems/libs attacking GOP/Cons speakers or papers.

    the dem party is more hostile to the right of association

    the dem party is more hostile to propery rights

    The dem party's support of affirmative discrimination is well documented

    The worst charge one can bring against the GOP is supporting benign neglect to some "rights'

    I said majority, not every single republican.
    And I don't think it's a misconception, just look at some of the republican ads during the 04 election.

    yet using the dem logic, since that only affects a very small percentage of the population its not a big deal

    we hear that alot when dems justify the death confiscation tax or tax hikes on the top 2% of tax payers (a group that pays about half the FIT though)
