Contrary

Did you know?

As with the 1957 and 1960 civil rights acts, it was Republicans who passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act by huge majorities. A distinctly smaller majority of Democrats voted for it.

In the Senate, for example, 82 percent of Republicans voted for the act, compared with only 66 percent of Democrats. In the House, 80 percent of Republicans supported the law, compared with only 63 percent of Democrats.

  1. Most of the Democrats that voted against Civil Rights legislation later became and remain today, Republicans. I didn’t switch my own sympathies away from the Republicans until 1964. I wasn’t registered to vote at that time, only 13 years old.

    A lot of things bothered me about the Democrats then, some still do. Being the Party of discrimination and religious extremism are no longer among them, as they were then.

  2. Well, it could be said that the Democrats discriminate against white men and the Democrats also have religious extremists…such as the global warming crowd.

    Personally I don’t really like the Republicans much anymore. I believe in small government and reasonable taxes and few Republicans believe in that anymore. Both Bushes liked to spend other people’s money.
