    Apparently the GOP feels the need to have its Southern members like Haley Barbour go out and spread the lie that it wasn't race that caused the Democrats in the South to go running full-speed to the Republican party. It was....some other reason.

    Can you believe that tripe? Read it and weep.

    It's getting to where it's harder and harder to be a racist in this country... What's up with that?

    This article is supposed to prove what exactly?

    “I’ll have those ******* voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
    - Lyndon B. Johnson

    “Jews — that’s J-E-W-S.”
    - State Senator Bill McKinney explaining why his daughter Cynthia lost in 2002

    “Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.”
    - Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

    The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years.”
    - Louis Farrakhan

    “White folks was in caves while we was building empires… We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
    - Rev. Al Sharpton

    “The white race is the cancer of human history.”
    - Susan Sontag

    These negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they’ve never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.
    - LBJ

    “I am not going to use the federal government’s authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnic homogeneous neighborhoods.”
    - Jimmy Carter

    I mean, you’ve got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
    - Joe Biden (referring to Barack Obama)

    “Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
    - Robert Byrd

    “I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state …. The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia …. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va …. I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities.”
    - Robert Byrd

    “You’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”
    - Senator Fritz Hollings

    How can we forget FDR and the Dems using federal money to subject blacks to Nazi-like syphilis tests at the Tuskegee Experiments?

    Yeah that about sums up the change in both parties that specific platform.

    The excesses of the Democratically controlled federal government didn't stop there though.

    The DEMS were arrogant enough to imagine that they could change the social dynamic of this nation in a LOT of areas that were bound to lose them support.

    Regardless of what we might personally think about the agenda, Feminism, which challenged long cherished beliefs about society, ALSO alienated a huge segment of the working class population that had formerly been solidly Democratic voters.

    Gays right further alienated deeply religous people who'd formerly been Dems.

    The Dems stance on guns rights also alienated rural voters who'd previously seen the Republican party for what it is...the party of the rich.

    Throw in the continued assault on American industry called FREE TRADE (remember that the Dems organized though unions for decades) and we find that the Dems shot themselves in the foot by losing those blue collar voters, too.

    Politically, the Dems did so many things to alienate so many differnt blocks of voters, it would be surprising that Obama won the last election if one didn't know how badly Bush II's administration screwed things up.

    Despite all the populist rhetoric we hear from both parties, America basically now has TWO parties working for the rich, now.

    Neither of them really has natural consituents (other than the super wealthy) but they still have about half the potential voters (more than enough to insure that one party or the other will win) who are clueless enough to imagine that those parties are working on their behalf.





    The Dems lost their way, folks

    The GOP is doing all it can to make it easier. They even minted some Frank Luntz code words to disguise the verboten "N" word. In the Orwellian right wing world, it's now racist to be anti-racist.
