History dictates that the Republicans have always fought to keep every American free. Whether black, yellow, brown or white. Which brings the question of why anyone would want to vote Democrat. The democrats have shown that entitlements is the answer. To me an entitlement is to keep you enslaved to the government.
Why on this great earth would you want to be held captive in the arms of government? The Democrats promises are only there for your vote. The Democrats have always intended to keep you comfortable in your poverty. For your Democratic vote they will guarantee you a program to keep you lazy and feed off the taxpayer. Well, the next time you get your government check, maybe you should stand on a corner and thank every taxpayer for your comfortable situation. Below is a little history about the Republican Party and the vote results on the civil rights act.

The Republican Party started in 1854. It was a one-issue party, and that issue was anti-slavery.
Well, to be specific, the issue was the spread of slavery. The infant party knew it couldn't do anything to stop slavery in the South, so the goal was to stop slavery from spreading any further. Like the new territories in the Midwest, for example.
