Of course, health insurance reform is the greatest accomplishment of this term.
But my favorite interest is in ARPA-E research grants to help develop renewable energy. A lot of progress has been made in a few short years. It doesn't get much attention in the mainstream media.
Democrats are responsible for the following:
8-Hour Workday
Social Security
Minimum Wage Law
G.I. Bill of Rights
Marshall Plan
NATO
Peace Corps
Medicare
Medicaid
Civil Rights Act of 1964
Voting Rights Act of 1965
Water Quality Act
Clean Air Act
Women's Suffrage Amendment
Workers Compensation Act
Unemployment Compensation Act
Rural Electrification Act
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
Federal Home Loan Program
Securities & Exchange Act
Guaranteed Student Loan Program
Family and Medical Leave Act
More Democrats voted against the Civil Rights act than did Republicans and a higher percentage of Republicans voted for it than did Democrats.

If there had been more Democrats in office at the time... the Civil Rights act would never have passed.

Yet... you credit the Democrats for it's passage?

You misspeak a lot Fed. Pointless drivel; as in the first sentence of your last post, and everything else you have posted. And the reason you have no wife or girlfriend, you can't find a woman dumb enough to have you, not to mention you are looking for a tranny. The only thing you got correct was to say YOU ARE SORRY.

This revisionist history is disingenuous to say the least.

Kennedy first proposed the legislation. A Democrat brought it to the floor. LBJ made it happen.

A majority in both parties voted for it. The Southern Democrats were bigots and fought against it. These ignorant racists are who LBJ was referring to when he said the Civil Rights Act lost them the South for generations. The Democratic bigots became Reagan Republicans in the next decade.

The 1964 Republican nominee Barry Goldwater opposed the bill. Even today, Teabagger politicians like Rand Paul and others say the Civil Rights Act was a mistake.

So, Yes, I credit the Democrats for its passage.

You guys do realize that Heavy Fed will never accept that as truth don't you? Also you might want to define revisionist for him.

Y'all just remember... Democrats are for the individual and controlling the individual, Republicans are for the Republic and keeping the individual free.

If you want to look after yourself, get free things and be controlled vote Democrat... if you want to look after your country, and retain your liberty vote Republican.

The Republican party was established to free the slaves.

Obviously they are tired of being free and want to be slaves again... except this time the chains will be for all of us.

You can't see them, but Obama is steadily adding them link by link.

More of the same bulls--t. Neither party is for us. Then again have you ever heard the term Solid South? Democrats lean toward Socialism, Republicans lean toward Plurocracy, and niether favor the middle class. So Fed just pack it on back to La Porte, and if you learn to act real nice maybe they won't run you out this time.

BOTH parties are part of the problem, but there are far more freedom fighters and defenders of liberty in the Republican party.

Except the Republican party has been repeatedly screwed over by the Establishment by them backing ringer candidates picked to lose.

Many Republicans refused to vote for Romney... which is exactly why he was chosen over Ron Paul.

Ron Paul would have united the Right... and much of the Left... and lots of the in-betweeners.

That would have been the end of the Establishment and their control over us.

They could not have that.

So Ron Paul was sabotaged and ignored at every convenient opportunity.

The people lost there.

Ron Paul was hardly ignored. He wasn't sabotaged. He was included in the debates. He had an extraordinary organization and his followers were enthusiastic and idealistic.

The simple truth is that his ideas don't appeal to a broad segment of the population.
