    Just a thought.

    The "safety net" was shredded by him, giving poor people little hope. So many of them turned to crime against the "haves".

    The "haves" reacted with their "war against crime" rather than addressing it's root causes.

    Even today, you GOPpers are still more interested in fighting crime than addressing it's causes.

    LBJ addressed the root cause of crime with his "war on poverty". How did that turn out? Poverty increased and the National debt increased and Black families were torn apart because Uncle Sam became the new head of the household just like democrats planned.

    Oh I remember those "good old days" of Carter, the days of 18% mortgage rates, the days of every time he spoke he had a dark cloud over his head.
    I remember any time I saw him on TV I would think, oh god, what's happened now!

    We are still paying for LBJ's "great society". Life was simpler when the democrat party didn't have to contend with the information age. Racist former segregationist democrats managed to hire poverty pimps to keep Blacks on the plantation and the media looked the other way.

    Yeah.....the Luddites never were big fans o'......​

    As usual.....Carter was CORRECT.....and, "conservatives" preferred to keep "bending-over & grabbing their ankles" (as Porky Limbaugh describes it)....for Middle Eastern Oil.

    That's a good point, because both you and the op are more or less correct.

    It's a good illustration of the apparently less than obvious similarities between the two parties that most don't see because they're too busy trying to prove one side is totally right and the other wrong.
