I think most people already know this about the Democratic party. At least, I was taught all this in a high school Civics/Social Studies course.
This was what the Democratic party used to be. Historically, they were the more oppressive until they began to realize that they wouldn't be able to get votes because of progressives (oh hey, sound familiar?). So that's when the Democratic party "reinvented" itself and began to become more liberal/progressive. When they were seen as more progressive than the Republican party, people began to vote for them due to the mindset of the average citizen was driving closer to a liberal one (social/civil equality, socialist tendencies, etc).

Because there was a niche market left for the "slightly conservative" to "extreme conservative" citizens that were disenfranchised by the Democratic party's "new image" - the Republicans became the conservative party. Now you've caught up to where we are in modern day United States.

Or, as Ryulightorb had said - both sides, politically speaking, are equally lame. They both suck, they're both full of citizens in that "party before country" mentality, and people who refuse to see reason and data as points of reference to make decisions.

All the video does is talk about the history of the Republican and Democratic Party. What it fails to mention is that things have changed considerably in the last few decades. Does the term "Southern strategy" ring a bell?

Which is pretty much why I chuckle whenever Amayas or whoever brings up a meme pertaining to the GOP's civil war era accomplishments, ending slavery and what not. The parties have pretty much swapped hats since that time period.

Tbh I don't really like to think in terms of political parties, because there are idiots on both sides. I prefer to think in terms of the "idiots who don't use facts or logic" side and the "normal people who understand what logic is" side. Reasonable people can be found on both the left and the right, just as you can find idiots on both the left and the right.

The current state of that the two political parties today are different from what they were in the past. So lets not point fingers at one political party's dirty laundry when the other side's shit also stinks.

There is one comment in the video i do love though.

"God I hate partisanship." -ThyBookie5

It sums up how i feel....almost perfectly.

It just makes the modern Republican Party's infatuation with the Confederacy all the more baffling.

It's not Republicans so much as Southern Conservatives. Even if it was largely controlled by the Democrat party at the time, the modern Republican party has much more in common with the Confederacy's ideology then the modern Democrat party, so it makes sense.

Lmfao, the ignorance is appalling.

That's a lie spread by the left. Most of those "23 million" is just a numbers game to them. Those people will be the same people who were already uninsured in the first place, but were required to do so because ObamaCare ya'll.

Medicaid on the other hand is a separate program altogether. The only ones who will be removed from that are the ones who shouldn't have been on it in the first place.
