Inequality is behind us now. All Americans need to be treated the same.

Huh? are you attempting to re-write history?

How does ending the war in SE Asia help minorities/Women here in the U.S?

Reagan increased taxes 11 times AND gave 5 million illegal immigrants amnesty. As far as Bush tax cuts, are you serious? The success of the tax cuts are still debatable.

Your #2 assertion is incorrect. A Democrat was one of the three people involved in the writing of the 13th Amendment. For a fairly comprehensive analysis of the 13th Amendment origin and ratification process:

What are you talking about. Read what I said about the 13th amendment. I did not assert who wrote it, just that most democrats opposed it and that republicans overwhelmingly supported it.
2nd strike for you!

The Democratic Party isn't a big tent party, but at least it's not a Big Top one either. We still nominate serious men and women for high offices. (We have our clowns too, but the lunatics aren't running the asylum.)

You mean the economy where all but the wealthiest Americans haven't seen any real gains since 1970? The Big Top can't take all of the credit for that. They had some help creating that economy from the Democrats, who also love to cravenly suck up to rich, corporate interests.

Answer yes or no.
You are splitting hairs. Was he the first hispanic governor? Was he a republican governor. Then what are you wasting our time for?

These multi-post arguments over minutia are usually a good sign that someone is way off the scent.
