Whereas the Democrats are for the gay, minorities, religions that are not western and the poor.
All others get screwed....(except that 1%).....
Actually the true Dems are for those things..not the scum politicians who use those points and call themselves dems.
Where as the people of the republican party are actually are for none of those people and is the party of...ME ME ME..the hell with you.

You are so 100% correct! The Republicans are all ME...ME...ME. ME work, ME raise my family, ME be a Father to my children, ME responsible for my own actions, ME shouldn't steal, ME a US citizen and earned the right to be here, ME build my own business, ME will decide what to teach and feed my children, ME is able to take responsibility for ME.
And the Dems are the party of YOU. YOU pay for those who refuse to work, YOU provide money for those who milk the system, YOU need to accept any sexual orientation, YOU have to allow illegals into the country, YOU need to feel guilty about something, YOU are a child and YOU are a racist...don't know what you said...but YOU are a racist.
90% of lawmakers from states that were in the Union during the Civil War supported the bill [Civil Rights Act of 64] compared with less than 10% of lawmakers from states that were in the Confederacy.
"Some Republicans gave up on winning the African-American vote, looking the other way or trying to benefit politically from racial polarization," Mehlman said at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "I am here today as the Republican chairman to tell you we were wrong."
Mehlman's apology to the NAACP at the group's convention in Milwaukee marked the first time a top Republican Party leader has denounced the so-called Southern Strategy employed by Richard Nixon and other Republicans to peel away white voters in what was then the heavily Democratic South. Beginning in the mid-1960s, Republicans encouraged disaffected Southern white voters to vote Republican by blaming pro-civil rights Democrats for racial unrest and other racial problems.
Political analyst and Nixon campaigner Kevin Phillips, analysing 1948-1968 voting trends, viewed these rebellious Southern voters as ripe for Republican picking. In The Emerging Republican Majority (Arlington House, 1969), he correctly predicted that the Republican party would shift its national base to the South by appealing to whites' disaffection with liberal democratic racial and welfare policies. President Nixon shrewdly played this "Southern strategy" by promoting affirmative action in employment, a "wedge" issue that later Republicans would exploit to split the Democratic coalition of white working class and black voters. (See John Skrentny, The Ironies of Affirmative Action (U Chicago Press, 1996)). This strategy soon produced the racial party alignments that prevail today.

Part of the American DNA to distrust gov't and the parties involved.
