    Really, it would seem they have little place in America given that their ideas about big government are the opposite of the basic Constitutional idea of limited central government formalized by our founders.

    FDR was really the first liberal Democrat and his New Deal was mostly leftist inspired, not America inspired, as his choice of Henry Wallace, Alger Hiss and the others would indicate. Now they have Obama who had two communist parents and voted to the left of Bernie Sanders. How can we conclude that Democrats are anything but a genuine Trojan Horse on American soil? I have yet to hear an answer to this.

    If Jefferson founded the Republican Party, then Democrats are the green cheese that drips to Earth from the Moon, granting paranormal powers to modern liberal politicians along with the gift of prophecy, immortal life and bullet-proof skin. Democrats would then never lose an election, and would in fact be a superior race of beings who could only be challenged by superheroes from the Interstellar League of Justice.

    However, of course Jefferson didn't found the Republican Party, so none of that is true -- thank God!

    I like the evidence a liberal uses!! It will not even occur to a liberal to have evidence!!

    WIKI: The Democratic-Republican Party or Republican Party was an American political party founded in the early 1790s by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Political scientists use the former name, even though there is no known use of it in the 1790's, while historians prefer the latter one; contemporaries generally called the party the "Republicans", along with many other names. In a broader sense the party was the concrete realization of Jeffersonian democracy, i.e., continued aggressive opposition to the British monarchy, opposition to monarchy and strong central government in general, celebration of individual freedom and liberty from strong central government, and state's rights.

    Republican Party - Conservapedia

    The Democratic Party was the home to the conservatives until the middle 1960's. Then the liberals from the Republican Party moved to the Democratic Party and the conservatives in the Democratic Party moved to the Republican Party. You can read about it at a number of places, including, oddly enough, "Conservapedia". I posted a link above.

    The Republican Party today maintains a racial make up of about 90% white. For a reason.

    Actually FDR was the greatest liberal in American History in the
    1930's


    yes they have been brainwashed to think the government that enslaved them is now their best friend. Liberal targeting of blacks starting in the 1960's amounted to a near genocide. Now you can understand what Reagan meant when he said, "isn't welfare a from of slavery"

    Even today's Democratic Party has conservatives because they are a coalition party. Liberals aren't allowed in today's Republican Party. They are as welcome as the gays.

    FDR took office when the economy was bad, he took advantage of the desperate people and enacted all his progressive policies during the crisis, all of which failed. Only a world war and the creation of the 'industrial military complex' brought the US out of it.

    FDR had no qualms about circumventing the constitution. When many of his New Deal legislation started to be undone by Congress and the Supreme Court, he tried to add more justices to the Supreme Court in order to fill it with a bunch of progressive hacks that would rule in his favor. Thankfully his attempt failed.

    Obama is trying his best to mimic FDR. He's used the 'economic crisis' to pass 'stimulous' bills which were nothing more than slush funds for his cronies. He circumvents Congress whenever it suits him. And he is already trying to stir up more wars in the Middle East.
