Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed in 1865 with 100% Republican support but only 23% Democrat support in congress. Fact: During the Civil War era, the "Radical Republicans" were given that name because they wanted to not only end slavery but also to endow the freed slaves with full citizenship, equality, and rights. Fact: The Ku Klux Klan was originally and primarily an arm of the Southern Democratic Party. Its mission was to terrorize freed slaves and "ni**er-loving" (their words) Republicans who sympathized with them.So the facts are out there about the Democrats and their racist past . Why might it be that the Democrats of today fail to see their racist past and want to blame racism on others ?http://russp.us/racism.htmrealdemocrathistory.wordpress.com/2008/05/15/the-kkk-was-the-terrorist-wing-of-the-democrat-party/
http://historynewsnetwork.org/article/3554en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_KlanThe historian Elaine Frantz Parsons describes the membership:Lifting the Klan mask revealed a chaotic multitude of antiblack vigilante groups, disgruntled poor white farmers, wartime guerrilla bands, displaced Democratic politicians, illegal whiskey distillers, coercive moral reformers, sadists, rapists, white workmen fearful of black competition, employers trying to enforce labor discipline, common thieves, neighbors with decades-old grudges, and even a few freedmen and white Republicans who allied with Democratic whites or had criminal agendas of their own. Indeed, all they had in common, besides being overwhelmingly white, southern, and Democratic, was that they called themselves, or were called, Klansmen. Historian Eric Foner observed:In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired restoration of white supremacy. Its purposes were political, but political in the broadest sense, for it sought to affect power relations, both public and private, throughout Southern society. It aimed to reverse the interlocking changes sweeping over the South during Reconstruction: to destroy the Republican party's infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.The KKK has deep roots tied to the Democratic Party.So why is it Democrats of today deny the history of the KKK and it's Democratic Party affiliation ?
RElGIONS VS SCIENCE, which one was more destructive to humanity?
All world Relgions versus all science. We wanna know how many deaths and destruction can associated to religion and how many to science. We understand there's some good things in religion and also in science in this debate lets discuss which was more destructive to the globe and humanity instead of the good things they brought to this world. Please Try to be as logical as possible and better if you have some evidence of natural website article to back up your arguments instead of just manufacturing theories backed up by nothing.
History so bothers the Progressive Left and their lack of accepting it is always reason to bring it to their attention !On September 22 1862, Abraham Lincoln issued his preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, in which he declared that as of January 1, 1863, all slaves in states in rebellion against the Union "shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free."Lincoln often expressed moral opposition to slavery in public and private. Initially, he expected to bring about the eventual extinction of slavery by stopping its further expansion into any U.S. territory, and by proposing compensated emancipation (an offer Congress applied to Washington, D.C.) in his early presidency. Lincoln stood by the Republican Party's platform of 1860, which stated that slavery should not be allowed to expand into any more territories. Lincoln believed that the extension of slavery in the South, Mid-west, and Western lands would inhibit "free labor on free soil". In the 1850s, Lincoln was politically attacked as an abolitionist, but he did not consider himself one; he did not call for the immediate end of slavery everywhere in the U.S. until the proposed 13th Amendment became part of his party platform for the 1864 election.The Republican POTUS of the day freed the slaves. Why is it the Democrats ( Progressives of today) choose not to acknowledge that he was opposed by Democrats for this ?
Guess what everyone? You're all Hindus!Don't believe in God (Atheist)? You're a Hindu!Accept that humans aren't capable of knowing our origins? You're a Hindu!Think that there's only one true God? You're a Hindu!Conservative? You're a Hindu!Liberal? You're a Hindu!Neither? You're a Hindu!I can back all of these up. I encourage everyone to contribute, and try to prove they are not Hindu! Good luck!
Now we hear Hillary running around calling for universal background checks. This is a woman whom has been protected for years by armed security. Why is it that Progressive Elitist can be protected by firearms yet firearms for law abiding citizens should fall under the scrutiny of those protected by firearms ?
The affirmative position holds that God is good and greater than evil. The negative position holds that goodness and evil are equal and counterbalanced and those who believe in it are full of it and it stinks.
As a Christian I would like to take this opportunity to openly say that I do not think my Religion is the only way to find God. Some of the more zealous and fundamental Christians will balk at this. So be it. I don't think a God as loving and Inclusive as our Creator God would send just ONE man to Earth, in all the time we have been here, so spread the Word to us. Jesus was a Son of God, yes! But I DO think He was human, a mortal, and even though His teachings were so profound so as to be of a Divine Nature, He was NOT the only Prophet or Sage that God has sent us. There have been others. Siddartha Gautama (the Buddha).....Lao Tzu, the founder of Taoism....Mohammed...Confucius. These were ALL Sons of God who were Inspired by their Creator. Christianity is my personal choice of Religions. But I do not think for a minute that we have the Only Say on matters concerning how to Live a Good Life and come to Know God. The best parts and dogmas, doctrines, of the World's Religions are like spokes on a Wheel. Those spokes can lead us to the Hub of that Wheel. Which is God the Creator. All religions have their good and bad points. All have been corrupted to an extent. All have false prophets. And ALL have a primary Inspiration from God. Jesus is my personal choice for my Spiritual Guide. But God is my Savior. I think that God would not care if we found our Way to Him through Buddha, Mohammed, or Jesus. As long was we lived good and loving lives and sought His Will for Us. I just want some of you agnostics and even atheists out there to Understand that not ALL Christians think that those who do not believe as we do are Condemned. And cannot Find God. Thank you, and God Bless. And God Speed on whichever Path you choose to Find Him!
So the law would be that women can abort but the abortion would have to be done in such a way that the fetus would be removed intact and if it survived the ordeal, it would have to be put up for abortion.Or should the fetus be removed in pieces so that there is no possible way it could survive the ordeal?
Earth To Hillary!Bankruptcy - Legal procedure for liquidating a business (or property owned by an individual) which cannot fully pay its debts out of its current assets. Bankruptcy can be brought upon itself by an insolvent debtor (called 'voluntary bankruptcy') or it can be forced on court orders issued on creditors' petition (called 'involuntary bankruptcy'). Two major objectives of a bankruptcy are (1) fair settlement of the legal claims of the creditors through an equitable distribution of debtor's assets, and (2) to provide the debtor an opportunity for fresh startIn a recent soundbite aired on TV, Hillary claims that Trump, with bankruptcy in his business background, would bankrupt our country. Ahem, hello? Earth to Hillary: the US is already bankrupt. With the doubling of the national debt under Obama and YOU, we have gone from owing 10 trillion to 20 trillion. This figure doesn't include unfunded future obligation which are estimated to be about $127 trillion dollars! This figure also doesn't include all the freebies that Hillary has promised voters if she gets elected.Talk about out of touch; Hillary is living in an alternate universe. So, who is the biggest threat to the financial stability of our country?
Hillary says Trump hates women while she supports killing girl babies up to birth.
Who truly hates women? The one who supports killing them all the way up to birth? Yes, hypocrite Hillary Clinton refuses to support the right to life of viable late term girl babies!Hillary supports no restriction abortions and will veto any bill the GOP creates for a compromise to limit abortions at 20 weeks(unless extreme cases). Doctors have saved viable babies at 22 weeks!Five months for a woman to decide and STILL that is not good enough for these EXTREMIST Democrats.-FromWithin
What I mean to ask: Does CreateDebate need personal conflicts to be as entertaining as possible? How important are they, if at all, to the livelihood of the community? It's too bad that there isn't a "meta" category.
Saintnow tries to get people to go to his debates so that he can ban them. I say we boycot his debates and only engage him in other people's debates where he cannot ban anyone. We can copy/duplicate his debates so that we can answer his stupid questionsany way we wish. Once he enters anyone of our debates, we ban him. If you have already been banned in one of his debates, make another account and continue pissing him off.Or we can just ignore him.
