Once again, you're another guy who missed the history lesson that in the early days, the conservative racists were Democrats and the liberals were Republicans.
The GOP loves to perpetuate that fallacy because they like to convince you that Republcians are the party of Lincoln. WHen in fact the notion of freedom was a liberal idea, as was the Revolution... and the ancestors of those now called Republicans had nothing to do with that.
Fact is, the republicans were the Tories! Things started changing early last century and was pretty much culminated when the Kennedies went down and forced integration in Southern schools. And LBJ then signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The racist Southern Dems couldn't wait to change parties and become Republicans. And vice versa. You shouldn't have been stoned that day in high school history class. Replies:
