The trouble is that Republicans refuse to accept that the country did some things that were not so exceptional. Try slavery and segregation for starters. In Texas they teach white male history. Minorities and women need not apply.
I was wondering why the entire world wants to live in this terribly racist nation.
In other news, Europe was totally fucked up for more than 1,000 years.

Ok, you acknowledge Democrat legacy. I will celebrate Republican legacy of pushing for the end of slavery, women’s’ rights, end of Jim Crow, and for Civil Rights.

I suppose it would be too simple for you to show the evidence which is destroying the country.
It wouldn't be the dems would it. Of course not.
And you think I'm not awake to your stupidity.

Conservatives love the United States of America. Liberal's hate America and want to destroy it. In their eyes America is an evil and awful white supremacists imperialist nation.
What you believe does not show love of America. America is more than white people and white racism and those responsible for it will and are being held to account.

Let's look at the real legacy of the republican party.

The republican party is the party of the Corwin Amendment.

The Corwin Amendment is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution that would shield "domestic institutions" of the states from the federal constitutional amendment process and from abolition or interference by Congress. Although the Corwin Amendment does not explicitly use the word slavery, it was designed specifically to protect slavery from federal power.

The proposed constitutional amendment declared:

No amendment of this Constitution, having for its object any interference within the States with the relations between their citizens and those described in second section of the first article of the Constitution as "all other persons", shall originate with any State that does not recognize that relation within its own limits, or shall be valid without the assent of every one of the States composing the Union.

On February 26, Congressman Thomas Corwin, who had chaired the earlier House committee, introduced his own text as a substitute, but it was not adopted. The following day, after a series of preliminary votes, the House voted 123 to 71 in favor of the original resolution, but as this was below the required two-thirds majority, the measure was not passed. On February 28, however, the House returned to and approved Corwin's version by a vote of 133 to 65, just barely above the two-thirds threshold.

This was Corwins versioon:

"No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State."

The Senate took up the proposed amendment on March 2, 1861, debating its merits without a recess through the pre-dawn hours on March 4. When the final vote was taken the amendment passed with exactly the needed two-thirds majority – 24-12.

Abraham Lincoln, in his first inaugural address on March 4, said of the Corwin Amendment:

I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution—which amendment, however, I have not seen—has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service ... holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.

Just weeks prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, Lincoln sent a letter to each state's governor transmitting the proposed amendment, noting that Buchanan had approved it.

The Corwin Amendment has been ratified by:

Kentucky: April 4, 1861
Ohio: May 13, 1861 (rescinded ratification – March 31, 1864)
Rhode Island: May 31, 1861
Maryland: January 10, 1862 (rescinded ratification – April 7, 2014)
Illinois: June 2, 1863

On February 14, 1862, prior to the 1863 ratification of the amendment by the Illinois General Assembly, an Illinois state constitutional convention purported to ratify the Corwin Amendment. However, since Illinois state lawmakers were sitting as delegates to a convention at the time—and not meeting as the actual state legislature—that action was of questionable validity.

The Restored Government of Virginia, consisting mostly of representatives of what would become West Virginia, voted to approve the amendment on February 13, 1862. However, West Virginia did not ratify the amendment after it became a state in 1863.

In 1963, more than a century after the Corwin Amendment was submitted to the state legislatures by the Congress, a joint resolution to ratify it was introduced in the Texas House of Representatives by Dallas Republican Henry Stollenwerck

Republicans created and got passed an amendment that would have made slavery constitutional.

Let's look at the legacy of the republican party.

Emancipation Proclamation​


That on the first day of January in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

Only slaves in the confederacy were freed. The north still had slaves.

Compromise of 1877​


The Compromise of 1877 was an informal agreement between southern Democrats and allies of the Republican Rutherford Hayes to settle the result of the 1876 presidential election and marked the end of the Reconstruction era.

Jim Crow

It was a 7-1 decision that established Jim Crow as a national policy. Four of the supreme court judges voting in favor of separate but equal were republicans.

Voting/Civil Rights

As it pertains to the Civil Rights Act, 153 democrats and 139 republicans voted in favor of the legislation in the house . In the senate, 46 democrats and 27 republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act. In the house, 221 democrats voted for the Voting Rights Act, 112 republicans did. In the senate, 47 democrats voted for the Voting Rights Act, 30 republicans did.

Republicans nominated Barry Goldwater for president. Goldwater voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Voter Suppression

Shelby Co. vs. Holder

In 2013, it was a 5-4 decision with 5 conservatives who voted to gut provisions of the voting rights act that has enabled modern voter suppression courts have found to be blatantly racist.

On December 6, 2019 The House of Representatives passed H.R. 4, the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019, by a vote of 228-186. This bill was crafted to undue the damage caused by Chief Just Roberts who decided racism had ended with the decision in Shelby County v. Holder. There were 187 Republicans in the House of Representatives in 2019. 1 Republican voted for this bill, Brian Fitzpatrick from Pennsylvania.

The legacy of the republican party.

"What's Happening to the Country and Who's Destroying It?"


ANSWER: The Military-Industrial Complex. They are in cahoots (more or less pulling the strings of corrupt and brainless politicians) in order to amass lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, of money and material possessions.

Who's paying for it? You, the taxpayer.
Who's dying in their wars? You, the young and/or stupid, uneducated, disadvantaged.

Do you want me to tell you how it's going to end? Ask me tomorrow.

It has been known since ancient times that the commander is either ahead of the fighting army, or in its ranks, or behind it, depending on the degree of threat to the military leader, his fearlessness and his notions of dignity and honor. But the history of the world does not know a precedent when the commander-in-chief in the conditions of combat "went on leave"...

I certainly admit, in fact, I HAVE observed that Biden at times loses touch with reality, and he does it more and more often...

Show me one American who isn't convinced that Biden is senile. This is no longer just a subject to make fun of our country all over the planet. It's beginning to REALLY kill people because the commander-in-chief no longer understands WHO he is, WHERE he is, WHAT he should be doing and WHERE he should be.

Once again, the special-interest groups were humiliating the American people by framing the presidential candidacy to a man who has been "in the hole" the entire election campaign.

The country is clearly fractured in turmoil and multiple powers. And someone likes it VERY much: governance under "controlled chaos.

But the events of the last month have shown that anti-American forces have gone too far in destabilizing the country, and "controlled chaos" has logically grown into uncontrolled one.

This chaos has taken many innocent lives, and continues to take them: living people thrown off the slats of American warplanes when they were already in the air - caused a shock and additional hatred of Americans in the world, which will not go away for a very long time.

Biden and Harris should be removed from power and prosecuted for their personal culpability.

And stop "scaring" us with viruses and strains and blackmailing us about WHAT will happen to us if we refuse get a vaccinу!

Do you want people to BELIEVE that vaccines are harmless??? That they do NOT involve sterilizing the population or eliminating most of it altogether???

Let us set up independent biogenetic laboratories to check the TRUE composition of vaccines and the "accidental" nanoparticles and other artificially created mutants hidden by "reverse evolution" techniques in the solutions.

Arrest Bill Gates and his entire band of criminally-minded "Good club" associates. Have the FBI interrogate him using the harshest interrogation techniques (just not the ones we use at Guantanamo - that's an atrocity!) in the presence of an INDEPENDENT commission FREE from special interests. Aтв the truth about serum would suffice...

And when the American people are convinced that they are NOT being poisoned, we will ALL get vaccinated.

But don't do it using national-fascist methods borrowed in Europe in 1945!


P.S. What happens to Biden's eyes when they turn into two slits??? There's a lot of speculation about this in the world, too...

Doesn't really matter. The president isn't the only one making decisions.

Putin was shocked at how sharp Biden is. He was believing all of this rightwing bullshit about him being senile. You are destroying your country with these lies.

Being blown out of reach of an anteater by the wind doesn't mean the insect is intelligent. In any case, Putin is highly civilized and a diplomat. He would never publically speak badly of the mentally disadvantaged.

In other words, you would never acknowledge anything good about Biden no matter what.

If Mr. Soros did say that, he has successfully accomplished his mission.

Not only has he helped pit a certain ethnicity against all the other ethnicities in this country, but he no doubt contributed in some way to the United States being a laughing stock in the world because of its cowardice toward the Taliban.

That is an interpretation or an application of an amendment that could be applied to slavery or any other “domestic institution.” Democrats own the legacy of EXPLICITLY fighting for slavery, Jim Crowe Laws, and Civil Rights.

Ignore the dictates, rules, mandates, decrees ie vaccine passports, mask mandates, vaccine mandates. All of them are unconstitutional. Take them on legally. If everyone just goes along with these illegal decrees, they will continue their drunkenness in power.

Shame on you for spreading ridiculous lies like that.


The full quote reads: "'I’ve made my life’s mission to destroy the United States. I hate this country and I hate all of the people in it!' George Soros, Newsweek 1979" We looked through all of the Newsweek issues from 1979...we did not find was any evidence that Soros ever said such a thing.

Here is what Soros actually said about his life's work:

"Soros: The financial crisis, and how to solve it. It was not something that I was particularly concerned with prior to the rise of the crisis and I am also involved in the activities of the (Soros) Foundation.

"Wilson: But for the past 18 months you have been keeping an eye on the markets?

"Soros: Yeah but I have also been writing a lot more than I was writing before because the crisis really stimulated me. I wrote a series of articles in the course of the year, I wrote a book, I published a book and I’m just about to publish a sequel to last year’s book, bringing it up to date, I am just working on it now.

"Wilson: So do you have a sense that things are coming together for you now?

"Soros: It is in a way a culminating point of my life’s work, so to speak."

What is happening to the country is that Marixsts have gotten to the stage of their Gramscian March through our institutions where they can now enact the final phase of turning the U.S. into another Communist shithole.
