Note in the listing abover Trent Lott, Jessie Helms,and Strom Thurmond where the core members of the Republicans in Congress Segregation Caucus well into the 1980s

There's is little suspensions the Southern Democrats who switched parties are what they are. Marxist in theory and believers of Apartheid as a policy and subjugationist to the core in terms of the Constitutional protections Americans enjoy.

IIke's proposal duplicated the Civil Rights legislation of the reconstruction era, it's not like Ike was unique he just borrowed from the era before him.
Kennedy reluctantly, that is not near an accurate description of Kennedy's signature domestic agenda for America and ending segregation in the south and enforcing the US Constitution.
Kennedy, like Ike willingly called out federal troop to enforce the laws in Alabama, Ike did the same in Arkansas. George Wallace was Governor, not a member of congress when Kennedy called out the Federal Troops to confront George Wallace on the steps of the University of Alabama
That's not a reluctant action by a sitting president of the united states of America. That's an action intent to enforce the provision of the United States Constitution in an area intent on subjugating American citizens rights.
Every southern State and some in the Southwest were represented by Democrats in the Senate and House, most representatives and senators were intent on subjugating the rights of minorities, those in Arizona and the Southwest, and in the territories like Hawaii and the American Somas and Alaska. After Civil Rights all but Byrd of Kentucky and Gore of Tennessee and a hand full of others switched parties in the proceeding 8 years to support Richard Nixon in 68 and in 72 the South went solidly Republican. In the South the Democrat party was the party of the Confederates who opposed Lincoln and the Republicans, in the north the democrat issue wasn't slavery anti slavery was the cause of the abolitionist. The northern republicans seen the Civil War and Civil Rights as a continuation of the Revolutionary war
<quoted text>
Naw, Kennedy was reluctant. He saw a split in the democrat party as did Johnson. Violent incidents in the south forced his hand.

I know Wallace was a governor. The point was not many segregationist Dixiecrats switched whatever their position was.

Eisenhower also called in troops in Little Rock. It's called restoring peace, not legislation.

Civil rights was an extension of the revolutionary war? That's new.

You just mentioned the few actual segregationist Dixiecrats that switched. That's only a caucus, like the congressional progressive caucus founded by a socialist. Are all democrats socialists?

The Segregationist where the Southerners, Arlen Spector when I was in College in Phila was District Attorney and a Democrat
....... It's not in my eyes, it's in their politics. The Southerns were sworn to Segregationist well into the 1980, in some area Southerners shut down school system to prevent integration. The Religious right didn't come into being until Ronald Reagan's campaign for President. It's a relatively new phenomenon.

You don't know a lot about the make up of your party....... that's dangerous. Actually that was an era about 15 years before Reagan, that was the war protest and the massacre at Kent State University among other tragedies Blowing up of buildings and violence has always been a tool of the Segregationist, it was common for Southern Bombings in protest of equality, the 16th Street Baptist Church and the murder of 4 children on a sunday morning was one of the most infamous.

`The murders of countless of innocent minorities brought out Kennedy and Johnson's wrath and on several occasion and in a many places responded with Federal Force.

That's nice. How many of them were segregationist Dixiecrats? You even have Arlen Spector in the list. He's from Pennsylvania. In your eyes, everyone in the south was a segregationist.
There was a religious right switch in support of Nixon and law and order when leftists were blowing up the capital building. Nothing got Nixon elected more than leftist idiots causing chaos.

Bernie Sanders is the only sitting Socialist in Congress, the label some put on democrats is a result of some of you not knowing the difference between liberal democrats and Socialist who believe in State ownership of the means of production.

Sanders is pretty extreme in his politics but he's always been, he's as extreme in his beliefs as Social Conservative Republicans who believe in the separation of the races in America.

The Segregationist held their own conventions, their mantra "Segregation forever"......... Nixon won the Presidency and the South with a promise to reinstitute the racist policies before enforcement of Civil and Voting Rights, some 10 years later, Reagan would pick up that mantle to win the south convincingly, the Southern Strategy

I've given you a list of Segregationist who switched parties. Those are the individuals in Congress, and State and local politics in the South that kept in place illegal laws that denied rights and access to minorities in the region. The institutions that make America a civilization were tarnished and corrupt in that millions of citizens where denied the basic necessities of life and equal opportunity to capital and employment and least of all Justice from the Courts. Minorities in the South had the same chance of winning a bid for Government contracts as they did in receiving fair trials or home loans. All because of corrupt politicians.

This however was not exclusive to African Americans, but all Minorities and Women were considered second class citizens, right today women in the Republican South are vastly under represented.

Ike was enforcing the court order.......... Kennedy didn't push civil rights, but the movement grew on it's own and to head off civil unrest in the south he acted before the riots that consumed northern cities developed in the south. Kennedy wanted to avoid confrontation and push other elements of his domestic agenda. He couldn't attend to the situation, the entire world was watching and America was supposed to be the land of equality, the free and democracy.

It was easier to call out federal troops to enforce the Constitution than clean up after massive outbreaks of violence.

Especially black women. Those rednecks and hillbillies are all in the KKK or Teeparty. They want to throw a burning tire over Mr. Obama who they don't like just because he might have been born in Kenya. So what? Who really cares where the prezident was born? He is great man and will help us fight global-warming and raze the minimum wage.
A lot of the money paid for Obamacare will pay for abortions for girls who were raped by their bigoted uncle and to cure AIDS in our veterans. I just wish all these berthers would get arrested for libel but Mr. Obama won't do that because he just considers the source and won't lend credibility to their false charges. He has more important matters to attend to like Israel killing innocent mooselimbs and stuff like that.

CARACAS, Sept 30 (Reuters)- With both presidents facing tight re-election fights, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez gave a surprise endorsement to Barack Obama on Sunday - and said the U.S. leader no doubt felt the same.

That would mean that Bernie Sanders, a socialist, is the core of a progressive liberal caucus membership.

You don't have to use medicare if your retirement provides adequate health care coverage. That is one of the benefits of defined benefit pension programs and a option that a typical 401K doesn't begin to match. 401Ks were always only intended to be supplemental to a defined benefit pension and social security.
As a matter of being compensated in wages in America, you're going to pay medicare taxes.
If that's to difficult for you to consume, I'd suggest you talk to your personnel department at you place of employ, it's apparent if this is new information to you you don't have a defined benefit pension program with that employer.
Just because you don't use a benefit of a program doesn't mean you were not involved in it.

If your state requires you to have automobile insurance to drive and you never get into an accident, that doesn't mean you were not forced into a program. You paid, you're in the program.

If you drop dead before you can collect one dime from your 401 plan, it doesn't mean you were not part of the plan. You paid, you're in the plan.

Same holds true of SS and Medicare even if you never collect one dime. You were forced into a plan because you were forced to pay for it.

Revisionist history is exactly what you were recounting with your version of Dixiecrate and the Southern Democrats in the 50s well up into the 1980s.

The tension in the Republican party is a result of those decisions to embrace the southern democrats by the GOP and is about to come to a head now with their version of a political civil war. Northern Republicans haven't in all those years accepted Southern Republicans as their equal, thus the dividing line between the establishment republicans and the social conservative republicans.

Wow! You're one dangerous nincompoop. Some tea party groups were founded by black Americans, like David Webb. A black woman named Deneen Borelli, is big in the tea party. Black Americans, like Tim Scott and Allen West, were supported by tea parties.

Someone who spells raise as raze can't be too bright, Britegirl.
