    Ohh look here are the votes. Notice most republicans voted FOR it and a lrge number of democrats voted AGAINST it.

    Jillian? Remind us again how Southern Democrats left the party over this but went to a party that was MORE in favor of it then the party they supposedly left?

    Yup!

    The Dixiecrates certainly were opposed to that bill.

    The Democratic Party doesn't want to remember that once THEY were the party of Jim Crow and the Republican Party was the LIBERAL PARTY.

    It was taught in my school. From Lincoln until the civil rights era, the Republicans enjoyed a membership of the more liberal. Now the Dems do.

    What this has to do with anything is a mystery.

    This has to do with Jillian and others claiming the Southern democrats deserted the party to join the republican party over the civil rights act.

    It was a bit slower than that. I think it started after FDR that the Dems became more liberal and the Republicans more regressive. Around the time of George Wallace I think is when the drift was over.

    1964. The southern Democrats did not abandon the party at all. And the sure as hell did not leave over civil rights just to join the party that supported it even more so then the democratic party.

    Here, read up on them.

    There are still a lot of Democrats in the south that are actually pretty regressive. They like to vote in local elections and in the primaries. But that is slowly changing as well.

    LOL

    The Dixiecrats broke from the Democratic party because of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and became Republicans ...

    And the South has been Republican dominated ever since ....

    LOL
