Your retarded ass still haven't answered the question," how did the southern states become Republican states when in Civil War times, the South was known as southern democrats. Until then Cracker STFU!
Okay, since you really need some perspective...

Thousands of blacks had moved out of the south by the 1940s - called the Great Migration - moving west and north.

As white Democrats in the South lost dominance and the federal courts declared the Democratic White Primary elections unconstitutional, the GOP expanded its base throughout the South after 1968 largely due to its strength among socially conservatives, Evangelical Protestants and traditionalist Roman Catholics. The south began to take on the two-party apparatus which characterized most of the nation.

Tired Of Fact-Checking Those Bogus Right Wing Chain Emails? There’s An App For That!

LazyTruth is a plug-in for Chrome that automatically scans email for information that FactCheck.org and Politifact have deemed false. If something doesn’t check out, it’ll provide a few words of correction and a link to where you can find out more. You can then easily pass that verified information on to the email’s sender. Down the road Stempeck plans to add more kinds of rumors to LazyTruth’s filter — urban myths, hoaxes, false security threats, etc.— but for now the tool is limited to political tall tales.

“Put simply,” Stempeck explained over email (all of which checked out),“LazyTruth is a bridge between low quality information (chain emails) and high quality information (the research outlets that debunk chain emails).” By putting the fact-checking right in your inbox with the forwarded junk, LazyTruth reduces the friction (catch-all phrase for time and effort) between you and a politely worded correction.

Jindal:“Deal With It”

Bobby Jindal makes the case that Republicans should stop “navel-gazing” about their problems:

We are the conservative party in America — deal with it. We have a lot of dissenting voices. So what? Deal with it. The American public waxes and wanes. Fine. It will wax again soon enough. Deal with it, and start fighting for our principles instead of against them, so we can be in position to create the next wave.

This is the sort of cri de coeur that one might expect from an activist or maybe a pundit, but it’s remarkably tone-deaf for an elected official. Jindal seems to be retreating here from his previous very mild recommendations for Republican reform, and seems to think that there’s nothing ailing the party that can’t be fixed by a redoubling of effort and a more combative attitude. Jindal is right that public opinion can change, and a party’s political fortunes can revive when the public tires of the party in power, but that doesn’t mean that one can simply wish away a party’s political weaknesses. No one would seriously accuse the GOP of having suffered from an “excess of navel-gazing” in the last few months. Most Republican pundits and politicians can’t bring themselves to face up to the bankruptcy of the party’s economic and foreign policy agendas, and they are even less interested in a remedy.

Relatively speaking, Republicans are the conservative party in America, but it’s a party that has little or nothing to offer to middle- and working-class Americans, its latest period of unified government was disastrous, and over at least the last twelve years it has alienated millions of people through a combination of incompetence and ideology. The public has “dealt” with the GOP already by handing it significant defeats in three of the last four national elections, and there are not many signs that Republicans understand how to avoid the next one. Reaching that understanding has only just barely begun, and Jindal now wants it stopped, which creates the impression that the effort to make sense of the 2012 loss and make necessary adjustments was almost entirely perfunctory and meaningless.

“Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.” Many of the immigrant women were given shots of Depo-Provera to control the population due to a fear expressed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “that illegal immigrants from Africa ‘threaten our existence as a Jewish and democratic state.’”

After the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, integration, and the old barrier of becoming a Republican removed, Southerners joined a new middle class including transplanted northerners in moving toward the Republican Party.

Integration changed the old racial issues and, in 1963, the federal courts declared the practice of excluding African-American voters from the Democratic primaries unconstitutional.

The New Deal in the 1930s swayed black voters to support Democratic candidates, the shift that convinced many the Republicans were no longer the black party.

Republicans gained ground in the south by the late 1960s because it was no longer a Democratic South. It represented a two-party system by then.

Don't know when usage of common words became associated with bias.
Debunk: 1.show something to be false: to show that something is wrong or false.
Synonyms: expose, show up, deflate, demystify, discredit, set straight, throw light on, lay bare
So I will continue to use the word "debunked" when something is proven false.
And Galt said the "radical left", not "subversive" left, use that word. Why exactly I don't know, but that's his opinion. I'm sure he has his reasons which have nothing to do with me.
"Disprove" is a much better word, based on factual information, rather than the insulting nature of "debunk."

But, do as you choose.

Oh yes, let's tell our enemies and the terrorists all of the loopholes in our security programs! Fools!
There will be a poll here shortly asking the voters what is their opinion about the cost of the trip while Obama claims they cannot afford White House tours.

That should go over well. What do you think?

Well azzwipe, they are Independents. NOT Democrats.

If it didn't make any difference why did you separate the Independents in your vote totals in your previous post.
