March 20 The organization formed for the specific purpose of ending slavery....and that meant fighting the Democrat Party, the nation's oldest racist organization.



On March 5. 1854 At meeting at the Little White Schoolhouse, Alan Bovay proposes the name “Republican Party.” Evidence indicates there were several groups across the country that met to discuss the formation of a new party. Thus, the location of the first meeting has been disputed. It is known that Whig Party defectors met privately in February, 1854, in Crawfordsville, Iowa, to call for the creation of a new political party.

Some evidence indicates an earlier meeting was held in Exeter, New Hampshire. The first public meeting was held in March of 1854 at a small church in Ripon, Wisconsin, when Alan Bovay rallied anti-slavery forces and adopted resolutions opposing the Kansas-Nebraska Act.

A second meeting was held in a one-story schoolhouse in Ripon on March 20, 1854. Fifty-four citizens, including three women, dissolved their local committees and chose five men to serve as the committee of the new party: Alan Bovay, Jebediah Bowen, Amos Loper, Abram Thomas, and Jacob Woodruff. Said Mr. Bovay: "We went into the little meeting Whigs, Free Soilers, and Democrats. We came out Republicans and...were the first Republicans in the Union."




On March 20th, 1854....A group of people met in a small white schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin to protest the opening of Nebraska and Kansas territories to slavery. Disgusted with the failure of the current political parties and congress to uphold the cause of freedom in the West, they formed a new anti-slavery party and called it the Republican Party. “We went in Whigs, Free Soilers and Democrats, and came out Republicans.” Horace Greeley gave publicity to the new party.



BTW....on March 20, 1865, A plan by John Wilkes Booth to abduct President Abraham Lincoln was foiled when Lincoln changed plans and failed to appear at the Soldier’s Home near Washington, DC.
This Democrat succeeded in his next attempt.
Need I mention that every presidential assassin in the history of the nation has been a liberal- or has not been associated with a political outlook- none were right-wingers.




Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican elected to the presidency.


Know who was the first Republican to run?
Know what state he represented?

What's better, a good job or food stamps?




" We try and discourage people from self help." - Former Massachusetts Att'n General, Democrat Coakley



Exactly what Tocqueville wrote about Liberalism 2 centuries ago.

“an immense, tutelary power, which takes sole charge of assuring their enjoyment and of watching over their fate.” As he predicted, this power is “absolute, attentive to detail, regular, provident, and gentle,” and it “works willingly for their happiness, but it wishes to be the only agent and the sole arbiter of that happiness. It provides for their security, foresees and supplies their needs, guides them in their principal affairs, directs their industry, regulates their testaments, divides their inheritances.” It is entirely proper to ask, as he asked, whether it can “relieve them entirely of the trouble of thinking and of the effort associated with living.”

Good question

Reminds me of the old saying.......Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him to fish and he will eat for a lifetime

But what do we do when the pond has no more fish?

It was that damned Thomas Jefferson who cared about such nonsense as Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Staying in denial is a bitter way to live, you need to Walk Away...


Therein is the danger of trying to judge others by ourselves.

Some are capable of honestly appraising the issue....and then there is ....you know who.

When the pond has no more fish because they were all moved to China, or other low labor cost countries, the president needs to stock the pond with more fish. Trump's main purpose is to bring back good paying jobs. No other candidate gets that because they are all globalists hooked on K-Street cash. Trump seems to be the only one who is focused like a laser on jobs instead of: removing the electoral college, 16-yr olds voting, reparations, open borders, free college, free healthcare, infanticide, the green new deal, etc.

The Democrats have special anniversaries in their history, too.

  • 1828 — Democratic Party is founded by Andrew Jackson — a passionate advocate of slavery and key figure behind the ‘Trail of Tears’ — a state-sanctioned slaughter of around 15,000 Native Americans
  • 1866 — Ku Klux Klan is founded by a group of Democratic former confederate soldiers who fought to prevent blacks living in the South from voting
  • 1868 — Equal protection granted to slaves in the USA: 94% Republican support and 0% Democratic support.
  • 1870— Black suffrage: 100% Republicans voted for, 0% Democrats
  • 1915— First motion-picture movie to be shown in the White House is The Birth of Nation, a Democratic-Party produced propaganda film depicting the KKK as heroes.
  • 1939 —“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members” – Margaret Sanger (Founder of Planned Parenthood)
  • 1960s — “I’ll have those ******* voting Democratic for the next 200 years” – Lyndon B. Johnson
  • 2014 — 36% of all abortion in the US were performed on black women compared to the national black population of 13.3%
  • 2019 — Reproductive Health Act legalises the murdering of a child up to the day of birth

Even a cursory glance at the dark history of the Democratic Party reveals that they have been the party of death long before the 21st century."

Bullshit. The Republican Party never cared about anyone.

What's even more bullshit is to think the Democrats ever did.

Political parties are like politicians. They only give a fuck if they can get elected.

Your best bet is to vote for liberty and give them less power.

Republicans were built on standing up for the rights of the common man

By the time Reagan became President, they sold out to corporate america and were only interested in providing a low wage, compliant workforce.
Trump has taken it further, building a coalition of racists, xenophobes and radical Christians

Interesting you have to go back 50 years to find a period where Republicans were actually concerned about people

LBJ did more for blacks than any President since Lincoln

Using that same bullshit/candor, please describe the democrat coalition.

Hint: those "racists" elected Obama twice.
