The old Southern Democrat mentality died off. After the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 of which they vehemently fought to keep from passing, their racism no longer had any muscle.
Many blacks fled the southern states before the 1960s and many northerners moved into the southern states before the 1960s.
By 1968, the south represented the rest of the nation. The racist Southern Democrat bloc no longer existed.
Racists remained, switched from Southern Democrats to Republican.

Still on the plantation, satisfied with subsistence shelter, food, and clothing....and cell phones.
An old style slave plantation system with this new 'neo-economic chains' of welfare sellout slavery, instead of shackles, chains and rope bearer's of lynchings and still soldout slavery has not changed in over 500+ years.!!

An entire modern day updated demoKratic slave plantation system based on forcing all things to be "equal" and sold out. An organized liberal criminal enterprise dedicated to the legalization and theft of brain, liberty and freedom...

It's the culture...

Right, because now it the racist Southern Republican bloc.

Thanks for clearin' that up.

That it is progressing towards less racism is because of the influx of Northeastern liberals and media expansion.

Just like this post makes you look. Think about it.

However, you ordering people not to post doesn't work and well I was trying to protect you from looking dumb. But, you seem to think that it is your right to look that way. Have at it.

Agree about the religion.
I can however easily show how obamacare could do as you say, don't know or even think it will work out that way but I could demonstrate that it could.
Of course, I can also prove there is a God, in fact hundreds if not thousands of them.
One source - hundreds of interpretations of the source.

Seems I posted this not too long ago. Must be experiencing deja vu.

Galt always checks out any that appear suspicious...but not on a site that is equally dubious. Use original sources, not biased opinion sites like snopes, factcheck, etc.
Galt's Party's entire ideology is built on BS so there's no way he's going to accept sites whose sole purpose is to expose BS. Regardless of whether or not they source their data or that one of those mentioned was founded by a devout Republican and friend of RR.

Galt would hate RR if he were in the Party today.

Of course, as you may have noticed, those who have selective reading comprehension are claiming these women are really "moslums", not "jews" as the article claims. The fact that we have progressed beyond the 1960's and israel hasn't speaks volumes about that country's backwardness in civil rights.

The article does, however, have some flaws in it's claim that the forced sterilization of women by the Indian and Puerto Rican Health Services were sanctioned by the United States. Guess the writer of the article needs a history lesson.

Good point.
The Great Migration, a long-term movement of African Americans from the South to the urban North, transformed Chicago and other northern cities between 1916 and 1970.
Before this migration, African Americans constituted 2 percent of Chicago's population; by 1970, they were 33 percent.
Unfortunately, industrial employers turned away African Americans. European immigrants came first in the least skilled jobs and African Americans had even fewer opportunities.
(Which sadly explains a lot.)
http://www.encyclopedia.chicagohistory.org/pa...
The Great Migration, or the relocation of more than 6 million African Americans from the rural South to the cities of the North, Midwest and West from 1916 to 1970, had a huge impact on urban life in the United States. Chicago, New York and other cities saw their black populations expand exponentially. The social challenges and creating a new black urban culture would exert enormous influence in the decades to come.

Strom Thurmond appointed Thomas Moss, an African American, to his staff in 1971, the first such appointment by a member of the South Carolinian congressional delegation.

In 1983, Strom Thurmond supported legislation to make the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. a federal holiday.

Now let's talk about Robert Byrd. But first I'd like to see the source and quote you ascribe to Thurmond.

The ignorant also maintain that all the Dixiecrats became Republicans shortly after passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, another big lie.

Dixiecrats Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. and more, remained Democrats till their dying day.

You too joining the idiocy?

Dem politicians were very racist as well as many Dems themselves in the sixties and seventies. This is very well documented.

This attitude was rejected by the American public.

Southern Dems eventually also rejected this ideology and showed their disdain by becoming Reps.

The only ones lobbying for illegals to be covered under the Affordable Heathcare Act are the illegals themselves. Its not going to happen.

Under the care act, illegals are free to purchase insurance AND PAY FOR IT. They just can't be part of the exchanges or eligible for Federal premium tax credits and cost sharing reductions. Fair is fair.

No idea, but that is a fact, and not just at Walmart.
Sales are limited to one large box or three small boxes per customer, but even at that, those not at the beginning of the line were shut out.
There are a few shotgun shells available, but nothing else.
No idea? Really?

Its 'cause the NRA convinced the mouth breathers that Obama was coming to take their guns in the wake of Sandy Hook. I was surrounded by guys at work online daily buying all the guns and ammo they could no matter how well I explained to them that the tepid gun control legislation moving through Congress didn't stand a chance.

And, let's see: are they coming to take the guns? No.

Did the legislation pass? No.

Chock one up for Tenzing's amazing powers of precognition and one up for the NRA getting the suckers to quadruple prices and one for the gun industry for reaping the benefit of those sales and a big fat ZERO for the idiots who fell for it.
