2016 Election, Democrats, Elections

Times change but Democrats don’t

11

Rush Limbaugh recently commented that because of Donald Trump’s election Democrats have not been this mad since Republicans freed the slaves. This is unquestionably true. What Rush did not mention is that Democrats are behaving in much the same way as they did in 1860.

For instance Democrats were quick to point out in 1860 as they are today that the Electoral College victor lost the popular vote. In fact, Lincoln lost a little over sixty percent of the popular vote with eighty one percent turnout in a four-way race while gaining 180 electoral votes. 152 electoral votes were required to win the election.

Were our current day Democrats around 157 years ago they would be saying the same thing they are saying today: “Is that fair?” “What about democracy?” “We must change the system and get rid of the Electoral College!”

As in 1861 Democrats are now saying they will not obey federal law. Various state municipalities and colleges are claiming to be above the laws on criminal immigrants. In the 1830s the theory was nullification which claimed that since the states formed the federal government they were superior to it and any federal law that violated a state constitution was therefore null and void, which eventually led to the Secession Crisis of the 1860s. While this argument had some internal logic it has always been invalidated by federal courts. The Democrats of the Confederacy called for sanctuary states for slave owners. Our 2017 Democrats have a much simpler theory.  It is the “We Won’t Do It,” theory which has no logic to it whatsoever.

Secession was pushed by the Democrats in 1861 and in 2016. In 1861 it was pushed by Democrat Jefferson Davis in 2016 it is being pushed by Democrat Jerry Brown. Most school children believe that the question of secession was settled by Republicans long ago but the news apparently has not yet reached California Democrats.

Now as then Democrats have a problem with people in blue uniforms. Then it was Union Solders. Now it is the police.

The enforcement arm of the Democrat Party in the 19th century were people dressed in white sheets with pointy hats and white masks and equipped themselves with flaming crosses and torches. Their role was to spread mayhem and intimidate through the use of violence anyone who disagreed with them. In the 21st century the enforcement arm wears black outfits along with black masks and equip themselves with crowbars. Their outfits are better but their aims are the same.

Outrageous rumors is another tool still in the Democrat tool box. The famous dossier on pee gate is similar in unbelievability to the rumor Lincoln was forced to enter Washington, D.C. disguised as a woman.

Another parallel is that the Democrats have once again become a regional minority party. They now represent the Northeast Atlantic and Pacific coasts plus Illinois.  Back then, they represented the southeast Atlantic coast plus Texas.

Because of all these similarities can one draw the conclusion we are headed for another war between states? I hope not but there is one thing you can be sure of, if we are, the Republicans will win again.

    Seems to be some biased twisted information here to give the wrong information to some.. At the time the Slaves were freed the Republican party was the Liberals and the Democrats were the Conservative party.
    Just so you know the facts of the matter, I do think the Conservatives were the ones up in arms about the freeing of the slaves just like they are now about the minorities.

      You got the twisted part right, but what is twisted is your view of history. Democrats (esp the south Dems) have been liberal and racist for ages, from Jefferson Davis to FDR to Gov. Wallace to LBJ to Sen Byrd.

        The Democrats of today are not the racist party.

        Some information is good for the soul.

          Marxism uses rewriting history as a strategy to control the present and future. Don’t be a Marxist tool (or a Marxist for that matter). Lincoln the 1st Republican freed the slaves from a Democrat-turned-separatist Jefferson Davis. Eisenhower the Republican enforced desegregation challenged by Gov. Wallace the Democrat (Ike signed the first civil rights bills as well). You can twist with redefinition all you want but the facts are stubborn and will remain.

            There is no rewritten history it is any where you search that the Republican were the Liberal party during Lincoln.

    Those IDIOTS in the democratic party like to play CHILD. “If I don’t get what I want I’m going to throw one hell of a tantrum.” HOW CHILDISH CAN YOU GET……..just ask a democrat.

    Democrats and RINO’s need to get a real job! All of them should resign in shame!

  • SANDHILLFARMER

    Thank you Robert. That sums it up exactly – the current Grand Old Party would like the population to forget those facts about their party. And just so we can keep in the same mean spirit as most republican contributors, please don’t forget about who is throwing a tantrum about crowd size, voter turnout and purse sales. SHF

    Vile Liberal Scum fascists are evil to their rotten core:

    Isaiah 32:5-8

    Isaiah 32:5-8King James Version (KJV)

    5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

    6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

    7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

    8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

    King James Version (KJV)
    Public Domain

    The Churl is a miser. FIts the profile of many in the financial industry.

    This vision given to Isaiah by God is about our time presently. We are living in the latter days of time. Shortly before the return of the Golds in all of their GLORY!

    EVIL humans will be instantly reduced to ashes for in the presence https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f11823d3e3d8afa02be77247aeeafe5fae7a8dda8f98ec5adce182e35e059c83.jpg of a God EVIL cannot exist in the flesh. Their Spirit bodies will be cast into the bottomless pit for 1,000 of our years. One day to God[

    establishment, Korean War, Cuban Crisis, Vietnam War…The Cold War was started
    by Truman (Democrat) and ended by Reagan (Republican).
