Slavery


Bingo. Without the institution of slavery there would be 50% less welfare, 2/3's less crime and prisons, good public schools, no affirmative action, no white guilt syndrome and significantly less emphasis on political correctness.

On the other hand the SEC wouldn't be the dominant football conference.

I'd make that trade.

Democrats
1. Slavery and Jim Crow
2. New Deal/Great Society
3. Absolute disregard of 10th Amendment

Republicans
1. Creation of the EPA
2. Leaving the gold standard
3. Absolute disregard of the 10th Amendment

I would add direct election of US Senators and Roe v. Wade but I don't know who to blame.

Whatever policy destroyed the family unit. I say the biggest being the destruction of "in God we trust". Its so funny that somthing about god is written on every major goverment building in DC ,but yet our government today sees fit to say God has no place in government. Yeah and how is that working out for you America?



In God We Trust wasn't the motto of the US until the Eisenhower Administration. So all of the things that you all decry (basically anything Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, Clinton or Obama has done) were done AFTER In God We Trust was made the motto. What you want to return to was an America BEFORE In God We Trust was here.

Dylan recently stated the slavery was essentially the inescapable sin that doomed the country from the beginning.



Was it not? Don't you think the significant economic disparity between whites and blacks can be traced all the way back to the trans-Atlantic slave trade?

I'm not asking anyone to feel bad or guilty for anything, I'm just saying that all it takes is a cursory understanding of American history to see that the institution of slavery significantly altered American society in a way that we are still feeling the effects of.

That's why I hate the Dutch. If those bastards hadn't stolen people from their homes in Africa, we wouldn't have nearly the problems with entitlements we have today.



You mean the Portuguese, right?

They were the ones that got the ball rolling.

Please research the abolitionist movement.



Yes, because none of the slaveholders were themselves religious and felt that religion was able to justify slavery. Nope, that didn't happen or anything.

Typical apologetic response: point out something good said or done by a religious person while completely ignoring the contrary.

Fiscal policy
Foreign Policy

?

What about those are liberal or conservative? You gave terms that are literally so broad that they can mean anything.

"Foreign policy" for example means literally anything our country does in relation to foreign countries. Everything from isolationism to full-blown imperialism counts as a "foreign policy."

Leaving the gold standard


Happened under Nixon, yes, but was the result of LBJ's policies.

The Bretton Woods agreement was rendered unstable and unworkable due to US deficit spending to fund the Great Society and the Vietnam War.

Oh, and I think going to a gold standard isn't a good idea.

Okay, some of y'all don't know what "policies" are.

The POLICIES that are holding the United States back are the War on Drugs (conservative), poor campaign finance reform (liberal and conservative), and the promotion of universal home ownership (liberal).

There are lots of others, of course.

True, it is supported by both Democrats and Republicans. I guess I was labeling it as conservative because it is socially conservative and was started by Nixon and Reagan.
