What an astounding lie. Conservatives want nothing more than to keep minorities down. Why do you think they keep passing all of these Jim Crow,
draconian, voting laws?
You are either not a minority or you are clueless ... and dangerously so. Just because you say something doesn't make it so. Conservatism feeds on,
and promotes, bigotry. It is an evil that is about ready to die which is why it is screaming so loudly.
Conservatism = bigotry. And you are white.
You poor blind misguided individual.
Conservatism = bigotry? The only reason you believe that is because it is what you have been taught.
I find it sad that so many people let others think for them.
It's simple really, all you have to do is WANT TO SEE. Lets see if I can help clear this up for you.
1) What party benifits the most from having so many poor minorities in the US?
That's right, the democrats.
2) If someone really wanted to help the poor, would they.......
A) Give them just enough money and social benifits to keep them housed and from starving (can't have that huge voting base starving or freezing
to death, that would be a waste).
B) Set up programs that would actually help, such as, Educational tools, teach them to be productive members of society, help build their self
worth and self cofidence, and to be self sufficient.
The answer should be "B", sadly the democrats have set up "A" instead, because as long as they promise to provide, people will continue to vote
3) What party has always tried to help minorities have equal rights?
The republican party, that is actually the MAIN reason it was formed.
4) Who started the KKK and from what party was it's members recruited from?
WOW, that would be the democrats too.
5) How many times did the democrats try and pass a civil rights bill?
Once, in 1964. The first four times it was brought to the floor was by republicans, and was voted down each time by the democrats.
6) So the party has changed now, right?
WRONG, in the 1930's the "New Deal" was passed. This was the start of entitlement programs and after it passed about 30% of voting blacks switched
parties and started voting for democrats, it was about 95% for republicans prior to that.
The democrats of the 50's and 60's knew that they would not be able to win the race war and they would not be able to revive the practice of owning
slaves. Instead, they looked to what happened in the 30's and found a better way to enslave minorities, by making them slaves of the state.
Now not all of the democrats were on board with this idea, many called "dixiecrates" just could not get passed the idea of giving blacks equal
rights, no matter the benifits to the party. These were just too short sighted, they could not see the big picture (what we have today) and so voted
against the civil rights act of 1964.
They got it passed with the help of republicans (who voted in favor of it overwhelmingly more than democrats).
Shortly after they started the rest of their plan by staring to pass entitlements and just as they planned minorities overwhelmingly began voting for
7) Did you know?
The republican party actually made it a law that no state could join the Union if they delt in slave trading. When the democrats got in control they
changed that law quick.
8) How about this?
In the 1950's.....................
Ahhh, why bother. You are probably too brainwashed to see the truth.
I will leave you with this though.
THINK ABOUT WHAT THE WORD CONSERVATIVE MEANS.
NOW WITH THAT IN MIND, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD THEY WANT TO HOLD ANYONE BACK?
The more people we have working and being productive the more money and less taxes we have to pay. ALL OF US. BLACK, WHITE, RED OR
