I could start from the beginning of it all, but that would take so long to read and you would probably lose interest after just a few paragraphs. So I will keep it as simple as I can.
I won’t talk about slavery and the war the Democrats fought to keep it. I won’t talk about the rise of the KKK, Jim Crow, The Missouri Compromise, Roe Vs. Wade, Brown Vs. The board of Education or even the assassinations of Republican Presidents Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley. All who were active members of the Union during the American Civil War and all who were shot by Democratic “Lone wolves”. They even tried to take out Ford, (okay to be fair The Manson Family tried taking out Ford but I’m pretty sure those weed smoking hippies were all Democrats.)
I won’t talk about Democratic President FDR’s consecration camps during World War 2 or Democratic President Robert Kennedy’s veto of the Civil rights act. I mean the Democrats have come a long way since those days right?
I will however mention Democratic President LBJ. ( He’s just too good not to mention.) He found a way to re-enslave the poor and the minorities by signing into law the Welfare Act and the Food Stamp Act. Keeping those “undesirables” dependent of Government hand outs and creating a machine that produces Democratic voters for decades to come. And just for good measure he decided to co-mingle Social Security with the General Fund opening the door for everyone and their mother to steal from the poor and taking away their only chance of a comfortable retirement. Right after that he signed a bill that he vetoed twice before, giving the African-Americans the right to vote (which was good of him and a long time coming.) but that was only after he was pressured by the Republican held house and the Dr, King’s March on Selma.
How about Democratic President Woodrow Wilson who created the Federal Reserve. That was pretty awesome don’t ya think? (not! )
I know, I know. Your gonna say I am just digging up the past and people can change. So let me be more current.
How about Democratic President Jimmy Carter who created The Department of Energy. What a racked that has turned out to be. Oh and how about the deal he brokered with Kim Jung the second and the North Koreans. He gave then 4 billion dollars in light water reactors, 100 million in oil and 2 billion in financial aid just so they would promise not to build a nuclear weapon. (Hmm, kind of sounds like a deal our current Democratic President recently made with Iran. But I’m sure this time it will turn out different though.)
How about Democratic President Bill Clinton repealing the Glass-Steagall act which prohibited commercial banks from engaging in the investment business. He single-handedly created the financial bubble, the resection, and the banks that became “too big to fail”. He also led a massive bombing campaign over Syria and Iran which killed millions of people yet never once declared an act of war. (I wonder why they felt compelled to take down the World Trade center.) Oh and I won’t even mention the whole lying to the entire world on national television , Monica Lewinsky or the Starr report. Sure he looked good in those dark sunglasses playing that Saxophone. But behind that cool hair cut was a non inhaling tool.
Then there is our current gift of a Democratic President. B.H. Obama. He promised change. He promised a transparent government, that was until he realized that meant we got to see everything. (Then he quickly covered that shit up.) He bowed to communist leaders, and made deals with tyrants. He drew lines in the sand and quickly erased them when he realized he would have to back them up.He borrowed money from the Chinese, and he broke bread with the dictators of Cuba while granting its refugees freedom from an evil government.
He gave money to ISIS controlled organizations to fight the governing body of a country we are not at war with. He promised to keep lobbyist out of Washington, yet upon his first day in office he appointed nothing but Wall Street Oligarchs. He signed the National Defense Authorization Act as well as the Affordable Care Act. Keeping the common man poor, unable to afford health care and without their family doctor. It also kept our veterans without the funds needed to properly rehabilitate after war and our military without the funds needed to properly defend our country.
Looking ahead at the future, I can see how the Republican Party has been torn apart by a lifelong Democrat, Donald Trump. Who for who knows what reason decided to run for President as a Republican. And Hillary Clinton who has to be one of the worst human beings on the planet. She let Americans die in Benghazi just for politician gain. She was evolved in Watergate, White water and the wiping of a server used to transfer sensitive government information. She was evolved in the pay off to the eight women who accused her husband of sexual assault. Some of the women as young as 19 years old. Her husband once said that “Obama was only qualified to carry Hillary’s luggage”. ( So maybe there is still a little racism left in the Democratic Party after all. )
I know the system isn’t perfect. And I know the Republican Party is all kinds of screwed up right now. But any way you look at it. This country is better off because of the Republicans and worse off because of the Democrats.
This has been merely one guys opinion.
