180%? You should bow out now before you embarrass yourself even more.This is so incredibly misleading. The two major political parties, GOP & Dems, are not the same parties today that
they were 50 yrs. ago, even 8 yrs. ago. To dredge up what each of them did and/or stand for then isn't even partially true today. Using Lincoln as an example of how forward-thinking the GOP is on race relations is absurd.
And the Jim Crow laws most evident in the South of years ago were the legislation of the Dems in the South.
The Dems and the Repubs. can be turned 180% today from what they used to be. Please get your history more correct....
FYI - the "big party switch" myth is just that, a myth. When one takes an overall historical view of today's two major parties, one has been predominantly about less government and more freedom, while the other has been predominantly about more government and less freedom.
