boobiemiles Posted June 23, 2005 Share Posted June 23, 2005 I'm not looking to get barred here, but somethings need to be done for the better of all involoved. I use to live in NY but have relocated to Baltimore to get a higher cheaper education....."Bushanomics" at work here folks. With that said the atmosphere here is anti Bush, but I've been told that the south likes Bush, and are highly in favaor of the Repubican party. The reasoning presented made sense to me in a way, but there are still questions I still need answered. I thought that maybe the south was in favor of Republican party because the African American community is aligned with the Democratic party, but that left more questions to answer. I thought maybe it was the aftermath of the civil war, but then I realized that Lincoln was a Repubilcan, and during the era of the Civil war Republicans wanted to abolish the systems of slavery. So at one point the South was Pro Democrats and Anti Republicans. Was LBJ right when he said that signing the Civil Rights acts would turn the South against the Democratic party for generations. Is it really over the Civil Rights Bills? Thats partt of the perception. Yada yada yada. Now I've seen a lot of people try and bash the Democrats as crazy and yahoos, but do they really look crazy now? Iraq is a mess with no answer, the economy is shakier than a tech stock, and the real estate market is suppose to go bust. I was surprised we re-elected Bush for a second term, but you cant cry about spilt milk. My question is what do the Democrats have to do to win back the South?
