Republicans' Romance With Slavery

There's never been any doubt in my mind that if many of your more "Conservative" Republicans (and granted, that caveat may be a tad redundant) had their way, they would magically snap their fingers and transform this country back into some more slightly "modern" version of feudalism slavery. And now some are actually starting to give voice to their repressed, age old romance with that particularly peculiar institution of yore.

If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?  -State Rep. Loy Mauch (R-Bismarck)

See... The Bible says so- and the Constitution! Just the natural order of tell me ol' Loy wouldn't cut one helluva handsome figure with a Confederate officer's hat firmly atop his fair skinned head.

Typical Democrat lie machine.

The Republican Party was formed with the EXPLICIT PURPOSE of abolishing slavery.

And the Democrat's primary goal was perserving slavery.

When the Republicans started a literal war to end it.. the Democrats THEN enacted Jim Crow laws...

Yeah, tell us some more about how the Democratic Party isn't the party of racism.

Lie machine, huh? Did I make up that twisted, pathetic excuse for "logic" conceived and mouthed by Republican filth (which you would gladly proclaim as such- if you proudly held Mr. Lincoln in the high regard you claim)?
