Wasn't the civil rights act the brainchild of JFK and LBJ? Both were Democrats.

Honestly who would be stupid enough to vote for Hilary...?
I'm sure some people might vote Republican or Independent just so Hilary doesn't get another vote... She's just beyond horrible...
I don't think when Republicans think of an ideal presidential candidate, Jeb Bush comes to mind. But, the democrats love to bring him up because they know that no one wants Jeb Bush to be president.
Business Insider spoke to top GOP donors who indicated many of the party's top fundraisers were ready to back Bush.
"If he gets in ... he is the immediate front-runner," former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said of Bush.
"He will get the backing," SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci said. "People will be stepping over themselves."
One top investor who regularly donates to GOP candidates expressed support for Bush and a reluctance to make 2016 contributions until Bush makes his choice. Several other major donors are also staying on the sidelines until Bush decides, the investor said.
“When you have kids, you’ll probably have the same frustration,” he told MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt. “You love them to death and they have their own opinions. But I’ll make up my mind, just as I’ve said, at the end of the year.” “There’s nothing new here,” Bush added.
Jeb Bush — the son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush — is openly considering a presidential bid. Moderate Republicans are reportedly urging Bush to run as a more centrist alternative to potential candidates from the GOP’s tea party wing. Bush has been more active in the national media in recent weeks, appearing on the campaign trail and taking shots at Hillary Clinton over her comments on business and President Barack Obama for an “incompetent” response to Ebola.
A Washington Post/ABC News poll released earlier this month showed Bush leading a crowded potential 2016 Republican field with 15 percent of the vote.
On election day, Bush won by almost 11%. He garnered 61% of the Hispanic vote and 14% of the African American vote, a surprising showing for a Republican seeking statewide office

Besides, being accused of Democratic leanings is music to the ears of a Republican intent on grabbing Democratic votes. If Listening Bush's poll numbers hold up until election day, a pair of brothers will be governing a pair of states for the first time since the Rockefellers a quarter of a century ago. And, if Mr Bush does win in Florida, the Republican Party will have an example of how to position its presidential candidate in 2000: a candidate who, with the warped justice that taunts siblings, may well turn out to be the other Governor Bush.
Listening Jeb Bush
Mr. Bush, 45, a son of former President George Bush and a Miami businessman who is running for governor a second time after narrowly losing to the retiring Democratic Governor, Lawton Chiles, in 1994, has undergone a political transformation. He has tempered his hard-edged conservative talk to present himself as someone who has ''listened and learned,'' and he has courted blacks, Jews and other traditional Democratic voters he once ignored

Anyway I dont know... I have been thinking of how to fix this but with most of the wealth of our country going to the top .01% we are basically screwed...
