1.Zach is intellectually dishonest and stuck in the 50's.

2. The GOP economic policy is shite and it's call for inequality is not good for any society.

And people in the south who were democrats were all progressive but conservative on civil rights. Without the civil rights movement, so many people in the south who identify themselves as conservatives would not do so, from an economic policy standpoint


Why are you obsessed with the South in 1960 when the OP is about voting philosophy TODAY in the NATION? You keep repeating shite about race when race has NOTHING to do with the OP.

quote:

Incorrect. It was all a perfect storm of economic conditions combined with resentment over affirmative action and busing


Conservatives are against Aff Action (which did not happen in the 60s) and against busing (which is socialism).

You keep using that phrase. Are you saying that I am lying about what I post? The phrase has no meaning and makes you look really stupid.

BTW, the 50s were great. Except for the music. I really hated Elvis.

You mentioned something about Dems of last century so I decided to be intellectually honest and preach truth

Doesn't change the factors that led to Reagan's election.

Making socialism into a dirty word just isn't a successful strategy.

Obama waves to you from the Oval Office.

Disagree, but at least a conversation can be had now.

There is no strategy that can beat buying votes via socialists ideas.

So, that gets you off on racism. OK, I get it. You have ADHD.

You were wrong. RR did not get elected because of busing. Busing had been going on for 15 years. He got elected because of Carter. Reagan did not run on busing.

You think inequality is good for society?

You might think again if we cut off social assistance and we have riots again like there were in 1967

The whole point is that progressive politics used to be popular in the south until integration and busing.

That's the only reason the south started turning so red in the 70's

quote:

You were wrong


I was an am 100 percent right

quote:

RR did not get elected because of busing


It was but one factor

quote:

Busing had been going on for 15 years.


Not in Northeast Louisiana. It had been going on only about 6-7 years

quote:

He got elected because of Carter. Reagan did not run on busing.


When you get up at a rally in Philidelphia, Mississippi and talk about states rights, we know that means.

quote:

Talent can come in many forms:
Actors have talent and become rich even if they are dumb.
Athletes who have talent become rich even if they are dumb.
Intelligence is a god given talent and they can become rich even if they are not physically gifted or good looking.


And even these people have to work hard to become rich. No actor, singer, athlete just goes out there and performs. They spend countless hours practicing and working to be the best. Intelligent people still have to apply themselves first in school, then in the business world.

Many people in the "leech" category have talents, but they chose to not take advantage of them.

quote:

Hard work is a value system:
An untalented person can become rich through hard work.
If a garbage man and a house cleaner get married, stay off drugs, limit number of children and invest wisely they can accrue a million dollars by retirement age.


And every single person (minus the mentally retarded/disabled) is capable of doing this. There is no logical reason for the ones who choose to work and use their talents to have to pay for the ones who waste their lives.

quote:

And, since the latter group is producing offspring at a higher rate than the former, America will become a true socialist state. And nothing can be done to stop it.


I guess we should start having more sex and kids? I could get behind that movement

People in the south didn't have a problem with Democrats until the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.

The only reason the conservative movement got as powerful as it has been is resentment over all of that.


You are misconstruing conservative/liberal ideology with political party.

Political party affiliates over long periods of time change in regards to being liberal/conservative.

Once the Democratic party was way more conservative. Now they are liberal. If more people would stop voting based on political party, and be more independent and objectively look at each candidates platform and whether that platform addresses the nations needs at that time in the best way, then our future Presidents would turn out much better.

I'm saying the progressive taxation and social assistance platform of the Democrats was cool with white southern voters until they brought in civil rights legislation. And over the years since that legislation was passed, more and more white voters fled democrats for Republicans.

It was more conservative regarding civil rights

Inequality is a part of every single country. People flocked here for years because it was your choice in the U.S. which side of the scale you were on.

Old Joe was a bootlegger and a crook. That's how the fortune got started. Anatole France nailed it when he said behind every great fortune lies a great crime.

But I'm sure Joe was a hard-working crook.
