Republicans were fighting back in the 1860's for the liberation of the slaves while the Democrats were fighting to keep the slaves in chains every step of the way.

Yep.



Thank you for completely and unequivocally endorsing and supporting my statement.

It is so nice to see someone who understands and appreciates real and true historic facts for a change.

We all know Republicans fought the slavery years ago.

Well, actually, not everyone knows that or appreciates that, but I am pleased to see you do.

Let me as well point out that Republican President Ulysses S Grant instituted The Enforcement Act of 1871 , also known as the Civil Rights Act of 1871, empowering the President to suspend the writ of habeas corpus to combat the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and other white supremacy organizations during the Reconstruction Era.

Who would agree to that knowing it's career suicide?  The only one delusional enough that I can think of is Steve King (R-IA).

Then their campaign posters and literature would read VOTE KING KING.  Smiley

Fred Harris would have been an above average Democratic presidential nominee.

Thank you TNF.

Yes, Fred Harris was a capable, dedicated, and hard working public official.

in any year,  but failed to win that Presidential nomination, who are the ones you would most liked to have seen win that Presidential nomination?

For me, Governor George Romney of Michigan for the Republican nomination in 1968 or Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York for the Republican nomination in 1968.

Governor Mike Pence, Indiana

Governor Susana Martinez, New Mexico

Senator Mark Kirk, Illinois

Senator John Thune, South Dakota

Thinking outside the box

Senator Tom Cotton, Arkansas

Senator Joni Ernst, Iowa

Well, Mr. Cory, I am very sorry that your hero was chosen in a scientific poll as the worst President since World War II.

If you have a complaint, take it up with Quinnipiac.

As for these scientific findings, your hero Obama still rates as the worst President since World War II, like it or lump it.

And resorting to personal insults, tsk, tsk, tsk.

Anyway, we had a number of posters running either successfully or unsuccessfully for office, including quite controversial ones such as Assad, Phil or DWTL, and I don't think there ever was such problem.

Didn't Assad first scrub his posting history though?

What offices did they run for?

IIRC he held (or is still holding) some local office. He also ran for Congress, losing Republican primary to an incumbent.

Thanks.

Are you referring to Assad, Phil, or DWTL?

Gillibrand, but she would not win the General election.

Even though Obama has been awarded the dubious distinction as being the worst President since World War II, even worse that Dubya

Says who?


http://www.Newsmax.com/Newsfront/obama-worst-president-Quinnipiac/2014/07/02/id/580425/#ixzz3KwrymFQb


President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, and the United States would have been better off if his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, had won the election in 2012, a new Quinnipiac University national poll released today reveals.

The best president? Ronald Reagan.


Not only is Obama the worst President since World War II, but the nation would be better off with Romney as President.

I really must apologize for referring to TNF as a clueless twit.

Just because TNF is a Communist and we disagree on The Civil Rights Act of 2014 bill is no reason for me to be insulting.

Sorry.

After all, the fact that I am a graduate of a top rated university, IRL, is not for nothing my friend.

Since when has the Illinois Reformatory Lyceum been top-rated?

Very good I must say.

Even though Obama has been awarded the dubious distinction as being the worst President since World War II, even worse than Dubya, I am a Republican who does not support the impeachment of Obama.

Members of this forum have already run for office.

Some even hold office.

This thread has generated some excellent, and funny, answers.

That being the case, I would then assume that any meandering on this forum is not prohibitive to a political career IRL.

Either that, or members of this forum are imbued with such integrity that they would never use postings on this forum by now public figures to impact them in any negative way.

Besides, in the vast majorities of cases, I would assume that members of this forum do not know who another poster actually is IRL anyway.

You wanna talk about Nazis?

OK, I'll play your little game.

Some call you a Commie.  Well, maybe you are.   After all, Commies are famous for eliminating freedom of speech.

But in addition to Commies being famous for eliminating freedom of speech, so are Nazis. 

Therefore, I can only conclude that you are a combination of both.

I know what you s said, and you did call others Nazis.

Never change,  Winfield

Oh come on now.  That's the best ya got?

Not a Stalinist, which is something you would know if you'd ever bothered to read anything I've ever posted.

The Communist Party of the Soviet Union was the sole governing party of the Soviet Union until 1990 when the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union annulled the law which granted the CPSU a monopoly over the political system.   (Wiki)

So without getting into a protracted discussion about Stalinism and Communism, it was a Communist regime which perpetrated this atrocity, or holocaust if you will, upon the Ukrainians.
99  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Petition Against The Civil Rights Act of 2014 on: December 03, 2014, 01:08:27 pm

I thought it was common knowledge that TNF was a raging pinko.

I must say that I really have not followed TNF's political career closely.

I am a communist. I have never suggested anything to the contrary.

I am not a Nazi. The fact that you graduated from a top rated university doesn't seem to have any impact on your ability to delineate between two hostile, utterly opposed ideologies. Nazis started the Holocaust, Communists ended it. Nazis support private property. I don't. It doesn't take a rocket scientist or a 'graduate of a top rated university' to discern the differences between the far-right (Nazism) and the far-left (Communism). It does, however, take a lick of common sense, something you've never exhibited at any point in the past.

My friend, when one  discusses the holocaust, one must be careful with broad, sweeping statements.  True, Nazis started the holocaust, but it was a combined effort between the Soviet Union and the western allied powers that brought an end to the holocaust.

And when one states that Communists ended the holocaust, one must as well realize that it was the Communists that created another holocaust, in the Ukraine, wherein Stalin's forced famine of 1932-1933 caused the deaths of 7,000,000 Ukrainians.
