That's not the point you were trying to make....
Logic and drawing conclusions from evidence presented isn't your strong point, one sees. My point was that Democrats by emulating their centuries old strategy of building up and maintaining a slave economy to enrich their core is what they do. At the cost of destroying a middle class, or never allowing a large middle class to exist.
Democrats a century ago, were the republicans. Today's republicans are the dixiecrats. Your logic is flawed. Also, if you refuse to believe today's republican politicians aren't guilty of the same thing, then your reasoning is biased.
“If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”-----LBJ
Half a century ago, Dems found a new use for blacks. They were taken out of the workforce, given welfare checks, and put into government subsidized housing for the benefit of crony capitalists and white union members who no longer had to compete with their low wages. The usefulness of Blacks had shifted from being a cheap workforce to grow cotton for the plantation owner to being a pass through of other peoples money to the landlords and store owners while also becoming a voting block for Dems to bribe with tax dollars.
Also the change really didn't happen in voting patterns until a couple of decades after the civil rights era. Before that people chose their candidates more on account of whether a persons grandpa or great grandpa supported Lincoln or not. There used to be rather conservative Democrats even up North as well as very liberal (Modern definition!) Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller or Richard Nixon.
So that LBJ quote doesn't sound like today's republicans in any way?
Nope, Dems have stayed the same; the only difference is that they have come for the rest of us to be put in the California style plantation.
