you folks who hate any who are different from yourselves just need others indiscretions to shield your own bigotry. though it seems you only do if for each others edification.
no one is buying. your complaints about others racism carry about as much weight as saying Obama isn't a US citizen. or that saying conservative economic policies work. or saying that Obamacare can still be repealed. or that the gays will never be equal. or...or...or.....no one is listening.

Peace - a brief summary below

The Oxford History of the United States is by far the most respected multi-volume history of our nation. In this Pulitzer prize-winning, critically acclaimed addition to the series, historian Daniel Walker Howe illuminates the period from the battle of New Orleans to the end of the Mexican-American War, an era when the United States expanded to the Pacific and won control over the richest part of the North American continent. Howe's panoramic narrative portrays revolutionary improvements in transportation and communications that accelerated the extension of the American empire. Railroads, canals, newspapers, and the telegraph dramatically lowered travel times and spurred the spread of information. These innovations prompted the emergence of mass political parties and stimulated America's economic development from an overwhelmingly rural country to a diversified economy in which commerce and industry took their place alongside agriculture. In his story, the author weaves together political and military events with social, economic, and cultural history. He examines the rise of Andrew Jackson and his Democratic party, but contends that John Quincy Adams and other Whigs--advocates of public education and economic integration, defenders of the rights of Indians, women, and African-Americans--were the true prophets of America's future. He reveals the power of religion to shape many aspects of American life during this period, including slavery and antislavery, women's rights and other reform movements, politics, education, and literature. Howe's story of American expansion culminates in the bitterly controversial but brilliantly executed war waged against Mexico to gain California and Texas for the United States.Winner of the New-York Historical Society American History Book PrizeFinalist, 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction

Senator Goldwater was FOR states' rights on every issue - including civil rights - and Senator Goldwater was very much FOR equal rights as well.

Only you, a true-blue liberal, would think history is gibberish.
What part is gibberish, Realtime? The vote on the 19th Amendment? The vote on the abolition of slavery?
Sen. A.A. Sargent, a Republican from California, introduced the 19th Amendment in 1878.
In January 1878, Senator Sargent introduced the 29 words that would later become the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, allowing women the right to vote.
Both chambers had a Democrat majority in 1914 and 1915 - where the 19th Amendment was rejected twice.
In 1918, Republicans controlled the House, Democrats the Senate. The Amendment was passed by the required two-thirds in the House. The proposal fell two votes short of passage in the Senate. Again, in 1919, it was again voted upon and failed by only one vote.
From March 4, 1919 to March 4, 1921, during the last two years of Woodrow Wilson's presidency, both chambers had a Republican majority. When the Republican Party regained control of Congress, the Equal Suffrage Amendment finally passed the House in May of that year and in the Senate in June.
This is actual history, Realtime. It doesn't fit into your perceived notions of what you want to believe about history, but it's still very much actual history.

Guess I have a class of two now - you AND Realtime.

The difference between being a conservative in the south today and a southern racist Democrat before 1964 is the issue of equal rights for blacks.

Conservatism survived in the south because a lot of northerners migrated there after 1954 and because the good ole' racist southern democrats failed to keep blacks from having equal rights and became honorary members of the Democratic Party.

Well, actually I may have been too quick to say there weren't any conservative democrats. There were, indeed, a lot of democrats who voted right alongside republicans where equal and civil rights were concerned. Just not enough of them to pass any major legislation.

However, I've made mention of that fact numerous times - that not all democrats were southern racist democrats.

JFK, for example, was a conservative democrat. Today, he'd be considered a conservative republican.
