If you believe the south is where most of the white racists are located, it seems like Trump would have only done well in the south, like George Wallace. I think DJT won 30 states.

I think one of the underrated reasons DJT won is a lot of people think he is funny. That is what Scott Adams, the Dilbert cartoonist, thinks.
Don swept the south and most of the midwest, though some of the midwest states and Florida were pretty close. A more granular view shows Hilary wins the larger cities. It is what it is.

LOL. Done.

You're right, I can't validate each of their votes just like I can't validate how each member of the Black Panthers vote. You've officially jumped the shark and this isn't an argument worth having.

Did you go to the Sip and Ride in Greenville yday?

Nothing you said in that post is factual. You also didn't mention DJT recently pardoning the black woman who was in jail for some kind of drug related felony. He got the Chinese president to spring those 3 black college basketball players who busted shoplifting. They were looking at like 10 years in a labor prison camp.

It is interesting how most of the topics about 'the South' on here feature a lot of people with your politics making accusations of racism that you could not prove in court.
You ever actually research anything? https://www.sbnation.com/college-bas...-jail-arrested

Btw Northern Florida feels more southern to me than parts of Northern VA! But ultimately I think both states qualify ass less southern than other southern states!

The crux of the argument that the parties have always been the same is that the abolition of slavery, womens suffrage, desegregation, etc. were conservative causes.

Whats needed to defeat that argument? A dictionary.

The definition of the word conservative is: "holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion."

The definition of the word liberal is: "open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values."

Enough said.
