I am less certain abut the difference in the party when women's suffrage was decided and today.
Regardless, it does not advance the discussion to say All Republican or All Democrats or all conservatives or all liberals. There is a vastly nuanced spectrum

Yeah. LOL.
They're going after the little guy again.
The poor schmuck who's trying to visit Yellowstone or the Grand Canyon with the family.
You get those jets out of the sky and we will start seeing a real government shutdown.
Until then, hasta la vista.
LOL. Your government has lied to you. Spies on you. Rips you off. And now, to add insult to injury, has flipped you the bird.

I'm sure all of us can agree, when we consider women's and minority's rights, the first thing that comes to mind is Republicans....same thing with GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWNS.....

Wasn't it Mark Twain who said something about not having a battle of wits with an unarmed person?

That just shows your ignorance. You think republicans don't stand for women and minorities yet can't provide one iota of evidence. You think that way because your leaders told you so. Again, must be liberating to not be able to think for yourself.

Oh, front page of the trib this morning: House Democrats refuse to reach a compromise to end shutdown. I'll bet you still think republicans are to blame

SUBLIME -- The above is from YOUR article that YOU posted.
So is this:

***

A few of the economists predicted the legislation would cost the economy around 10,000 jobs per month.

Other economists said businesses are bound to hire less because the cost of each employee will likely go up.

***
"Any time you attach an extra cost to labor you will cause it to be less fully utilized," said Robert Brusca, chief economist at Fact and Opinion Economics, a Manhattan consultancy.

***

Economists saying Obamacare is not having a meaningful impact on jobs tend to argue that hiring is not driven by labor costs, but rather demand for goods.

"Work still needs to be done," said David Wyss, a fellow at Brown University. "But it may be biasing toward more part-timers."

That is complete b.s., just because they haven't gone overboard and whack job liberal on the issue, doesn't mean they aren't the same.

That some folks have gone overboard is actually a reflection of the mainstream fanaticism of the democrat party ... it's perfectly reflected by Ferrerman ... according to him, unless you agree that black folks should be an elevated class, treated above and beyond white folks, when it comes to a range of situations, and want them to have special rules and privileges that apply ONLY to them, you are are a racist and want the return of slavery.

It's not enough if you say discrimination is wrong, segregation is wrong, slavery is wrong, racial profiling is wrong, and all of these things should not be allowed ... nope you have to go full bore whack job liberal on the subject and take it to the extreme to make some folks happy. Hogwash.

Edog, it is perfectly illustrated in my post above. You have to be an extremist in order for a democrat to think you are not racist. Hell, even if you mention the drop out rates, the incarceration rates, the children born out of wedlock rates,(all of which are facts, not opinions), so as to suggest many of things that ill the black community are internal to the black community, folks will say you are a racist.

You have to spew the liberal party line that white folks cause all these things and it's all white folks fault and because of this white folks should be treated inferiority in a range of situations and black folks should be treated better in a range of situations, in order to atone for this evil white folk's behavior. If you think differently and feel that everyone should just be treated colorblind and those who violate laws when it comes to discrimination should be punished, you are nothing more than a racist KKK neo-nazi member, because you aren't going far enough ... you have to take it to the extreme and maybe search deem down inside for some white self loathing, while you are at it...

If you actually believe that repubs stand for women and minorities you have lost whatever tiny bit of credibility you possess.

I have no doubt that there are and were some republican candidates and politicians who are and were racist. That's not the entire party. Each party has their extremists.

Yep ... preferential treatment for minorities is pretty much at the heart of the democratic platform. Even mainstream democrats are in favor of it.
