    Democrats are masters of illusion. They lie and make it appear that they are behind unions when all they really do is cart away the mountains of cash that the unions and their blind supporters donate to them. And in return they do very little, if anything, to actually "help" unions and their workers. But the illusion is maintained so they can always count on the union vote.

    Also....democrats are masters at creating the illusion that they are here to help blacks (as well as all other minorities) but all they really do is cripple them by offering more and more self esteem busting programs such as welfare, food stamps, affirmative action, etc. And by doing so they ensure that they cant can continue to count on their votes in the future. Sure....whites of all political backgrounds benefit from those programs but not to the extent as blacks.

    The democrats also are masters at creating the absolutely ridiculously false illusion that republicans are the racists when history shows that it is, in fact, the democrats that have been the road blocks to equality at every turn. It was primarily the republican party, which was actually formed by people that opposed slavery, that has fought for equality for blacks. The democrats, in general, were always in favor of denying blacks equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was largely supported, and therefore passed, by republicans. Democrats were largely opposed to it.

    Somewhere along the line democrats decided to change. But instead of re-evaluating their beliefs they decided to just lie and re-write history. Today it is hard, but not impossible, to find the truth. This is because the democrats control 95%, or more, of the media. But there are still history books, and even websites, that still hold the truth. Nowadays they are sitting pretty. They've changed history and squash any decent almost before it happens. They have 90+% of the black vote, have convinced young kids that republicans are a bunch of racist bigots before they even finish grade school. The lies continue all the way through college (with the help of ant-American; anti-capitilism socialist professors) so they enjoy a majority of the 18-25 year old vote.

    The illusion is set. I estimate that we can attribute at least 33% of votes (whether it be for President of the United States or a City Council) to the illusion. I'm not saying the democrats are all racist nor am I saying that there are no racist republicans. What I sam saying is that democrats have always, and continue, to distort the truth. And it is a damn shame! The truth is out there. If people what just let go of the sheep mentality and open their minds I GUARANTEE there would be more republicans in this country and things would eventually be better for the entire country.

    Found this link after posting. Good examples.

    Unfortunately for republicans, politicians say and propose stupid things. Continuing to push trickle down economics, partial privatization of Social Security, refusal of comprehensive approaches to immigration reform, Macaca, birther conspiracies, "making Obama a one term president", refusing $10 of cuts for $1 of tax increase, war on public employee unions, (yes the list goes on), all make it difficult to view the party as rational. Republicans paint their own "kick me" sign and stick it to their backs. Democrats simply oblige. Don't worry though. The far right still rule the AM radio dial...for what that's worth.

    That's simply not true. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed by majorities of both parties and signed into law by a democratic president. The split in congress was not rep/dem, but rather north/south:

    Note that even in the south there were democratic congressmen who supported it, the southern republicans were 100% opposed. In the north it also received higher support from the democrats, both in percentages and actual numbers. Barry Goldwater, the father of the modern conservative movement, voted against it giving as his reason that the government shouldn't legislate morality.
    There is a reason that President Johnson, a democrat, said "We have lost the South for a generation."

    You're are adding to the illusion with your post by focusing on the south. And you failed to recognize your party's other shortcomings concerning the Civil Rights Act. Such as the filibusters by the democrats. Here is a list of democrat short comings from the link I provided. The list is rather long so I concentrated on the Civil Rights Act since that seems to have been your focus.

    September 9, 1957
    President Dwight Eisenhower signs Republican Party's 1957 Civil Rights Act

    September 24, 1957
    Sparking criticism from Democrats such as Senators John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, President Dwight Eisenhower deploys the 82nd Airborne Division to Little Rock, AR to force Democrat Governor Orval Faubus to integrate public schools

    May 6, 1960
    President Dwight Eisenhower signs Republicans' Civil Rights Act of 1960, overcoming 125-hour, around-the-clock filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats

    May 2, 1963
    Republicans condemn Democrat sheriff of Birmingham, AL for arresting over 2,000 African-American schoolchildren marching for their civil rights

    September 29, 1963
    Gov. George Wallace (D-AL) defies order by U.S. District Judge Frank Johnson, appointed by President Dwight Eisenhower, to integrate Tuskegee High School

    June 9, 1964
    Republicans condemn 14-hour filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act by U.S. Senator and former Ku Klux Klansman Robert Byrd (D-WV), who still serves in the Senate

    June 10, 1964
    Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists-one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.

    August 4, 1965
    Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) overcomes Democrat attempts to block 1965 Voting Rights Act; 94% of Senate Republicans vote for landmark civil right legislation, while 27% of Democrats oppose. Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent African-Americans from voting, signed into law; higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor

    So, as you can see....only when democrats put their spin and deceit on the subject can they come out ahead. But when one looks at all of the facts and the entire history of racism the big picture is never clearer. We've all been lied to.

    One glaring exception is the auto industry bailout.
    The bailout/bankruptcy administered under the Obama process is that the Unions got moved to the front of the debt owners and they also kept their pensions fully intact and they own part of the auto corps (via stock) payout.

    This was one-helluva payback.

    It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S's: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism.

    It was the Democrats who fought to keep blacks in slavery and passed the discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws. The Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize blacks. The Democrats fought to prevent the passage of every civil rights law beginning with the civil rights laws of the 1860s, and continuing with the civil rights laws of the 1950s and 1960s.

    In March of 1968, while referring to Dr. King's leaving Memphis, Tenn., after riots broke out where a teenager was killed, Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd (W.Va.), a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, called Dr. King a "trouble-maker" who starts trouble, but runs like a coward after trouble is ignited. A few weeks later, Dr. King returned to Memphis and was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

    Given the circumstances of that era, it is understandable why Dr. King was a Republican. It was the Republicans who fought to free blacks from slavery and amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom (13th Amendment), citizenship (14th Amendment) and the right to vote (15th Amendment). Republicans passed the civil rights laws of the 1860s, including the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and the Reconstruction Act of 1867 that was designed to establish a new government system in the Democrat-controlled South, one that was fair to blacks. Republicans also started the NAACP and affirmative action with Republican President Richard Nixon's 1969 Philadelphia Plan (crafted by black Republican Art Fletcher) that set the nation's fist goals and timetables. Although affirmative action now has been turned by the Democrats into an unfair quota system, affirmative action was begun by Nixon to counter the harm caused to blacks when Democrat President Woodrow Wilson in 1912 kicked all of the blacks out of federal government jobs.

    Today, Democrats, in pursuit of their socialist agenda, are fighting to keep blacks poor, angry and voting for Democrats. Examples of how egregiously Democrats act to keep blacks in poverty are numerous.

    Democrats have been running our inner-cities for the past 30 to 40 years, and blacks are still complaining about the same problems. More than $7 trillion dollars have been spent on poverty programs since Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty with little, if any, impact on poverty. Diabolically, every election cycle, Democrats blame Republicans for the deplorable conditions in the inner-cities, then incite blacks to cast a protest vote against Republicans.

    In order to break the Democrats' stranglehold on the black vote and free black Americans from the Democrat Party's economic plantation, we must shed the light of truth on the Democrats. We must demonstrate that the Democrat Party policies of socialism and dependency on government handouts offer the pathway to poverty, while Republican Party principles of hard work, personal responsibility, getting a good education and ownership of homes and small businesses offer the pathway to prosperity.…[h=3]Source(s):[/h]The reason why it's not common knowledge is because the left needs them to keep slaving away on their "economic plantation" and getting their votes

    However, in a 2008 Associated Press story, King’s son and namesake Martin Luther King III said:"It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican. It is even more outrageous to suggest he would support the Republican Party of today, which has spent so much time and effort trying to suppress African American votes in Florida and many other states."

    You will repeat anything fox tells you.

    Dr. Kenneth W. Goings, professor and past chairman of the Department of African American and African Studies at Ohio State University, said in an email message that King may have had to register as a Republican to vote in Alabama in the 1950s. Goings said: "Daddy King was a Republican as were most African Americans in the South until the early 1940s. But the combination of Dem. Party outreach and Republican Southern strategy meant that by the 1950s the South was well on the way to the split that is evident now. I’ve not seen any evidence that MLK Jr. was a Republican but if he registered to vote it would have been as a Republican in Alabama simply because the Dems. would not allow black voters. Throughout the (Civil Rights) movement he worked with the northern Dem. Party...I wonder if somehow people have just confused Sr. and Jr. (maybe even on purpose)."

    PolitiFact Texas looked into a similar claim in 2011 and interviewed David J. Garrow, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning King biography "Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference" (1986). He said in told them: "It is simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican."

    I could care less if Dr. Martin Luther King was a republican or not. It doesn't negate the facts I have laid out before the board today.
