The problem isn’t democrat and republican... it is conservative and liberal..
LOL, so predictable. It's actually sad how predictable your arguments are. Republicans today are far more liberal (in the sense that the word meant
back in the civil war era) than democrats. Hell, the dems are trying to conserve the temperature of the planet. It doesn't get any more wacko
conservative than that.
The republicans wanted to try something new in abolition.. that makes them by definition the liberals..
Lol, you probably felt so smart typing that up. It's cute, really. So I guess lincoln transformed into a conservative in order to CONSERVE the union?
Lol, I can see your little brain crashing from here.
Who wants to conserve the traditions of the past and who wants to try something new..
Hmmm... let's see. On the one hand we have a party pushing for the failed governing theory called socialism and on the other we have a party pushing
for liberty. Not sure that's the best way to go about attacking republicans. While yes, we want to also honor our past, we recognize that the future
belongs to the bold. Nothing the dems offer is bold, it's just stupidity so extreme it confuses people into thinking it is bold.
I see you conveniently ignored the fact that it is only conservative Republicans who presently fly confederate flags... it is only conservative
Republicans who are fighting to protect confederate monuments on courthouse lawns....
First of all, that's not a fact. However, you conveniently ignore the fact that the confederate flag is not flown to show one's support for racism. At
least not in the vast majority of cases. This idea that preserving the past means condoning it in whole so asinine it's hilarious. Get a brain, pal.
Oh what's this? 32% of democrats think the
confederate flag is a symbol of southern pride, not racism?
Well gee, there goes your entire argument.
The next part to understand from that poll is that while, yes confederate flag flyers are more likely republican or independent, rather than democrat
(but believe me, there are plenty of dems who fly the stars and bars), they're not flying that flag for the reason of racism. They're flying that flag
out of pride for their state and their region.
LITERALLY EVERY PERSON CURRENTLY ON PLANET EARTH FLYING A CONFEDERATE FLAG IS A CARD CARRYING REPUBLICAN LOL EVERY SINGLE ONE.
Yelling it won't make it true, because it's not. But even if it were, it wouldn't matter. Because again, the flag is not flown in support of racism,
it's flown for pride in their home states.
Even when you dumb your side down enough to think that if you fly that flag it's because you support slavery or racism, it still won't make all those
people flying it actually support those things.
I swear, the modern left is made up of the most small and simple minded people who have ever walked the face of this earth. There are exceptions, but
there are to nearly every rule.
