Republicans: A Brief History

I came across this tongue-in-cheek post about how different the United States would have been if the Republican Party had not been formed. Some of the tasty morsels are:

March 20, 1854
Opponents of Democrats’ pro-slavery policies meet in Ripon, Wisconsin to establish the Republican Party.

May 30, 1854
Democrat President Franklin Pierce signs Democrats’ Kansas-Nebraska Act, expanding slavery into U.S. territories; opponents unite to form the Republican Party.

June 16, 1854
Newspaper editor Horace Greeley calls on opponents of slavery to unite in the Republican Party.

You can read more about a history of the Republican party here. It presents an interesting paradox considering that the dems now have the majority black vote. They seem to have successfully reinvented themselves from minority transgressors to minority activists. How times have changed.

Of course, a hundred or more years later we can never be certain how much is based on actual fact or just revisionist propoganda. That is the problem with history -- it becomes colored through the lens of time and the interpreter, but it makes for an interesting read nonetheless.

He goes on to add:
Grrrrrr!
It just infuriates me how Democrats are glomming onto Rosa Parks' death to get face time. When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on that bus, the majority of blacks in the south were Republicans. It was Democrats who passed segregation laws, Democrats who made up "black codes" that made it impossible for blacks to vote, Democrats who hid under KKK hoods, Democrats who savaged blacks during peace marches, Democrats, Democrats, Democrats! Democratic cult figure John Kennedy promised in his campaign speeches to act swiftly to end discrimination if elected President. He was elected. And he didn't lift a finger to push forward the civil rights issue. As a senator, Kennedy also voted against President Eisenhower's 1957 Civil Rights Act. And now Democrats are posing as champions of freedom and justice -- like a person who passes gas in an elevator and pretends it was someone else who did it. Disgusting!!

I've ruled out Dan Rather. Any suggestions?
