Obviously the Republican Party is no longer the party of Lincoln, Roosevelt and Eisenhower, so I think its time to pick a logo that more closely represents them. I came up with a couple of ideas, can anyone think of any others?
The skull houses the brain... ...and rats, roaches, and flies exist to consume(clean up)filth... ...and pigs are intelligent, unfussy, and useful... ...so it's a tie between the dead elephant and the swastika.
It happens countless times in the history classes of middle school, high school, and college, when they study the late 18th century in America. A stuck-up (and probably misinformed) history teacher/professor smugly informs his students that even though Republicans led the charge against slavery after the Civil War, the poles have since reversed and Democrats are now in favor of racial equality while Republicans are closeted members of the KKK. However, any historian truly worth his or her salt knows how ridiculous this notion is. We don't even need to look that far back in American history to prove this to be false. The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s is a perfect example. Was it the racist Republicans trying to stop civil rights legislation from being passed? On the contrary, it was Democrats in Congress who proved to be its biggest obstacle. Famously in 1964, a group of 19 senators, 18 of whom were Democrats, managed to filibuster the bill for 54 days. Not recent enough? Consider the "racism" behind the appointments of the only black member of the Supreme Court, the first black Secretary of State, and the first black female Secretary of State. All of these were appointed by Republican presidents. In fact, when it comes to slavery, the right to vote, ending segregation and many other issues, any careful study of American history will turn up Republicans fighting for equal rights for African Americans while Democrats try their best to maintain the status quo. So why does this myth persist so much? The answer is easy in this case. Republicans are associated with conservatives, and conservatives generally oppose programs such as government assistance and affirmative action. This is not because they are racists, but because they believe in the principles of self-sufficiency and equality. No candidate for a job or a school should be judged by the color of his skin over the content of his character. Sound familiar?
Wow. You're either really good at copy/paste or you actually took the time out of your day to write three paragraphs defending republicans and their bullshit to someone who clearly doesn't give a fuck. Either way, good for you.
Look. I know that liberals are not evil. I think about it logically and find why would they be evil? They just want what they think is best for the country. I don't agree with everything they have to say but, I respect that and plenty of my friends are democrats. He'll I'm only 17 years old. But keep in mind...republicans are the same. We aren't trying to screw you over, we just want what we think is best for the country. We are not closet Kkk members, we are average people just like you. I know that some conservatives. Have set a bad example. Some are racist, and some are hypocrits. But the Democratic Party isn't perfect either and has had it's share of hypocrisy. But within both parties this is just a small minority. I'm not trying to change your political views. I'm just trying to douse hatred. Please consider this before calling republicans evil
