98. The right to bear arms (Do you really think extreme right wingers would allow anybody besides themselves to have firearms if in power?)

The aca doesn't allow insurance to drop, or deny you medical coverage, this is a huge victory for the people.

The other stuff you mentioned is irrelevant until the law is fully implemented.


That is unless you try to go to a facility that does not accept MediCare or MediCaid, or is out of your network.

Or unless you don't have the deductible money.

Or unless your policy doesn't cover pain management.

5. The Civil Rights Act of 1964

^^^ Heavy Republican/Conservative support ^^^


And,



Republicans Passed the 14th Amendment – 1866


The 14th Amendment guarantees due process and equal protection of the laws to all citizens. It enshrines in the Constitution provisions of the GOP’s 1866 Civil Rights Act. The original purpose of the 14th Amendment was to defend African-Americans from their Democrat oppressors in the post-Civil War South.

The principal author of the 14th Amendment was U.S. Rep. John Bingham (R-OH). In Congress, all votes in favor of the 14th Amendment were from Republicans, and all votes against it were from Democrats.

In 1868, the Republican Governor of New Jersey vetoed an attempt by the Democrat-controlled legislature to rescind the state’s ratification of the 14th Amendment.

Stop pointing out facts, the op already made it clear in his reply to me only liberals ( from both parties??) Voted for this.

You how liberals love actual facts, they refuse to use them until completely washed of facts so they support only their ideas

Actually, from the founding . . . the liberals/globalists have been in charge . . . and increasingly using all sides against the middle.

One of George Washington's letters notes their presence even then . . .

This game has been a LONG time in construction . . . and for the dark lord . . . millenia longer.


The globalists (liberals) weren't in control of the government until the South was assimilated in 1865. The US economy was growing with deflation, just about the best an economy can be, until about 1894. The Progressives (liberals) began to control the economy about the turn of the Century, 1900.

The economy is the only real guarantor of freedom. A healthy economy wont change without warning signs. A healthy economy provides the maximum amount of consumer chosen products with a minimum amount of work. Production is the key to independence and capital is the key to leisure time.

Along your line of thought, the colonists didn't need to form a hierarchical, centralized army. That was George Washington's job, to make an army that would cost a lot and tend to centralize the colonial power structure.

In 1776 we could have just plain shot the red coats on sight until they left. We would have had to build a Navy, but we did that anyway in the 1800's.

The argument in favor of the Army was to get European diplomatic support by acting like a European society. Which was also an argument in favor of the Constitution and 1st Bank of the United States.

Eventually, the French King Louis XVI sent money and the French Fleet, which brought the war to an end. The debt incurred by France in financing the American Revolution was the straw that broke the camel's back and caused the French Revolution. (the Krakatoa eruption also contributed to the French Revolution by causing a bad harvest or two in France.)

I guess from somewhere out of the French Revolution came the liberal progressives.

How does that change the way they voted? Are you gonna argue that the south is conservative or liberal and how did they vote? Who opposed the civil rights act liberal or conservative?


Who Opposed the Civil Rights Act of the 1960's,
Mostly Democrats.
The following article uses language used by the parties involved and I would not recommend anyone reading this article or watching the video if your easily offended by the use of Racist Language like that used here.


Excerpted from Canada Free Press: Were you aware that in order to break the racist ways of Southern Democrats, it was Republican President Eisenhower who sponsored both Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act and it was a LBJ lead Senate who fought tooth and nail against them? Ike finally signed a watered down Civil Rights Bill.

Yes, let me repeat that, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sponsored and signed the first Civil Rights Bill. Did you know that? In 1957 President Eisenhower signed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which was intended to guarantee the voting rights of all African Americans. This was the first Civil Rights legislation to pass since Reconstruction.

He also was forced to send Federal troops to Little Rock Arkansas to escort black students entering a formally all white school. Now today all we here in regards to Civil Rights legislation centers around the 1964 C.R.A., but this is leaving out some of the most important parts. Including the fact that LBJ, prior to moving up to the Executive Office, opposed legislation favoring civil rights for African Americans in this country. One should ask, why this is no longer taught in our schools to children?
I apologize for the following language but we have to understand the truth that is not being told any longer. The following quotes are LBJ quotes:
“I’ll have those 'n-word's voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ

You can find this in Ronald Kessler’s “Inside The White House”

L B J


You can't set there and tell us that they did this for the Love of The People, No, they allowed the Civil Rights Act to be Passed, for the Love of their Political Party.

Civil Rights Act of 1964 for filibustering health reform legislation. It’s worth remembering that the longest filibuster of the 1964 act was conducted by a still-sitting senator, Robert C. Byrd, who personally spoke against the legislation for 14 hours and 13 minutes on June 9 & 10, 1964.



Even so, one final element was essential to passage of the civil rights bill—the strong support of Republicans. Although Democrats had a historically large majority in the House of Representatives with 259 members to 176 Republicans, almost as many Republicans voted for the civil rights bill as Democrats. The final vote was 290 for the bill and 130 against. Of the “yea” votes, 152 were Democrats and 138 were Republicans. Of the “nay” votes, three-fourths were Democrats. In short, the bill could not have passed without Republican support. As Time Magazine observed, “In one of the most lopsidedly Democratic Houses since the days of F.D.R., Republicans were vital to the passage of a bill for which the Democratic administration means to take full political credit this year.”

Isn't That What Democrats Do,,, Take Credit For The Accomplishments of Others?
Linky
Maybe you should pull that Accomplishment, I don't believe Democrats should be taking Full Credit.

You are likely more accurate than I, in at least key respects.

However, PLEASE, LET US CALL THEM WHAT THEY ARE

REgressives.

They have regressed all the way back to Babylon . . . and are determined to shove the whole planet there . . . brazenly literal satan worship, child sacrifice and all . . . the well informed know that.

The sheeple are like the Jews getting on the trains to Dacau . . . believing still that they were going to a wonderful new life.

I think 666 is a reference the to Babylonian number system, which was base 60. I think the number of the beast means,
the general population will think they have knowledge by way of science that they do not have.
Science will be used to lie and control and promulgate false religeon.
Science being represented by math-- in Babylon 666.

There had been two previous dark ages in the fertile crescent along the Tigris and Euphrates before the Abraham went to Israel. I think the Bible is a summation of the wisdom gleaned from that history.

Lets take a look at #4 shall we.



Thursday, June 5, 1919
Suffrage Wins in Senate; Now Goes to States
Constitutional Amendment Is Passed, 56 to 25, or Two More Than Two-thirds
Women May Vote In 1920
Leaders Start Fight to Get Ratification by Three-fourths of States in Time
Debate Precedes Vote
Wadsworth Explains His Attitude In Opposition - Resolution Signed with Ceremony
[See here for a picture of the New York Times Front Page, June 5, 1919]
WASHINGTON, June 4 - After a long and persistent fight advocates of woman suffrage won a victory in the Senate today when that body, by a vote of 56 to 25, adopted the Susan Anthony amendment to the Constitution. The suffrage supporters had two more than the necessary two-thirds vote of Senators present. Had all the Senators known to be in favor of suffrage been present the amendment would have had 66 votes, or two more than a two-thirds vote of the entire Senate.
The amendment, having already been passed by the House, where the vote was 304 to 89, now goes to the States for ratification, where it will be passed upon in the form in which it has been adopted by Congress, as follows:
"Article-, Section 1. - The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
"Section 2. - Congress shall have power, by appropriate legislation, to enforce the provisions of this article."
Leaders of the National Woman's Party announced tonight that they would at once embark upon a campaign to obtain ratification of the amendment by the necessary three-fourths of the States so that women might have the vote in the next Presidential election. To achieve this ratification it will be necessary to hold special sessions of some Legislatures which otherwise would not convene until after the Presidential election in 1920. Miss Alice Paul, Chairman of the Woman's Party, predicted that the campaign for ratification would succeed and that women would vote for the next President.

Suffragists thronged the Senate galleries in anticipation of the final vote, and when the outcome was announced by President Pro Tem. Cummins they broke into deafening applause. For two minutes the demonstration went on, Senator Cummins making no effort to check it.
The Vote in Detail.

The roll call on the amendment follows:
FOR ADOPTION - 36.

Republicans - 36.

Capper, Cummins, Curtis, Edge, Elkins, Fall, Fernald, France, Frelinghuysen, Gronna, Hale, Harding, Johnson, (Cal.,) Jones, (Wash.,) Kellogg, Kenyon, Kayes, La Follette, Lenroot, McCormick, McCumber, McNaty, Nelson, New, Newberry, Norris, Page, Phipps, Poindexter, Sherman, Smoot, Spencer, Sterling, Sutherland, Warren, Watson.
Democrats - 20.

Ashurst, Chamberlain, Culberson, Harris, Henderson, Jones, (N. M.,) Kenrick, Kirby, McKellar, Myers, Nugent, Phelan, Pittman, Ransdell, Shepard, Smith, (Ariz.,) Stanley, Thomas, Walsh, (Mass.,) Walsh, (Mon.)
AGAINST ADOPTION - 25.

Republicans - 8.

Borah, Brandegee, Dillingham, Knox, Lodge, McLean, Moses, Wadsworth.
Democrats - 17.

Bankhead, Beckham, Dial, Fletcher, Gay, Harrison, Hitchcock, Overman, Reed, Simmons, Smith, (Md.,) Smith, (S. C.,) Swanson, Trammell, Underwood, Williams, Wolcott.
Paired.

Ball and King, for, with Shields, against: Calder and Townsend, for, with Penrose, against; Gerry and Johnson of South Dakota, for, with Martin, against; Gore and Colt, for, with Pomerone, against.
Absent and Not Paired.

Owen, Robinson, and Smith of Georgia. The vote came after four hours of debate, during which Democratic Senators opposed to the amendment filibustered to prevent a roll call until their absent Senators could be protected by pairs. They gave up the effort finally as futile.

You did read the words Democrat Senators Opposed and Filbustered, right!
Link


Much of the opposition to the amendment came from Southern Democrats, a trend which remained consistent with Tennessee as the last state to pass the amendment, during a special session right before the ratification period was to expire.

ok today republicans equal right wing and democrats equal liberal but this hasn't always been the case.

At one time there was liberals in both parties, and there was conservatives in both parties.

So in years past when republicans voted for something its not a automatic vote for the right and the same with democrats its not a automatic vote for liberals.

If you people can't comprehend this, its impossible to debate the topic.

If you think conservatives voted and supported the civil rights act, then why did Strum Thurmond leave the Democrat party for the republican party? Why did the civil rights act get so few votes from the southern republicans and democrats?

Idiology fails when confronted by the historical facts.

This is that moment for you.

Don't turn away, embrase it, this is your awakening.

Come forth, crawl out of that cocoon of rhetoric you have been emprisoned in, see the light, it is good, it is true, it is beautiful.

Please come towards the light of truth.

There is a reason the progressives have to use hundreds of words to say yes or no, it is because they are lying.

Don't go too far though, we want you in the middle, stay away from the right, they are just as bad.

If conservatives were for the civil rights act then why do so many support repealing it today?

I have shown the most conservative area of the country where against the civil right act of 1964 (the south)

In 2006 congress re-approved the civil rights act for another 25 years, but as soon as obama was elected a flood of lawsuits going after section 5 was launched by conservative groups, more lawsuits in 2 years than in the decades since the bill became law???

Maybe because the Civil Rights "debate" may have had nothing to do with Liberals or Conservatives.

Maybe it was a different issue that has since been hijacked.

Wow. I have never seen a group of people kiss their own rear ends so blatantly. It is pathetic. Aggravating also the gall of the authors. Like #91 for example "Established the basis for Universal Human Rights by writing the Declaration of Independence". L.O.L. The term liberal wasn't even around back then, at least not in the meaning it has today. Oh yeah, they also claim they gave us the right to bear arms(#98)! Ha. This is a funny read. The funniest I've found: #97 - Fair, open, and honest elections!!! I'll believe that if it ever comes to pass. Oh....my.....God....I was wrong. This is the most hilarious claim I have seen in the list. #150 - Modern Civilization

They also claim to have gave us some terrible institutions like the Fed Reserve and the ACA.

I cannot believe I was actually able to read a piece of garbage.

This is based on a older article but its still true today as it was the day it was posted. The term liberal is meant to be a insult thrown around by the right wing but lets look at this list and decide if liberal is such a bad thing.


1. The 40-hour work week.
2. Weekends
3. Vacations
4. Women’s Voting Rights
5. The Civil Rights Act of 1964
6. The right of people of all colors to use schools and facilities.
7. Public schools.
8. Child-labor laws.
9. The right to unionize
10. Health care benefits

150 Achievements of Liberals.....

I wouldn't mind seeing a list of what conservatives have achieved for the betterment of us all.
IMPORTANT: Using Content From Other Websites on ATS
MOD NOTE: Posting work written by others


The founders might have something to say about 55, 56, 57. You could call the founders a lot of things liberal isn't one of them. Now they want to take credit for the constitution and the bill of rights? This isn't funny this pure propaganda for the uneducated.

Great thread. Conservatives, like ALL Americans enjoy the good that Liberalism has brought to their lives but refuse to admit or be grateful to the men and woman of that great tradition of---humanism and human development--that it has brought rights, liberties, and the possibility of the pursuit of happiness to the great majority of Americans and even the world.

Unfortunately too many people are falling into the trap of reactionary and bigoted GOP style conservativism ( tea party) with all its anger and hatred for change and the maintenance of rights and benefits like the 150 mentioned above.

They are actually useful idiots of the very interests that have always been against the pursuit of happiness for all: that is the elite rich corporate interests who seek to monopolize power and wealth for themselves.
