Liberals love to revise American history because they are ashamed of their past. Maybe it is time to set the record straight on things. Here is a timeline of the two parties from beginning until now. For those of you who may not be aware; in the year 2016 the term Liberal is synonymous with Democrat.
The Democratic Party officially adopted its present name during the presidency of Andrew Jackson in the 1830s, making him the father of the Democrat Party. Though Andrew Jackson did a few great things as president and before, Democrats refuse to acknowledge any of them because of The Trail of Tears. Amazingly enough however, they don’t even understand that Andrew Jackson wasn’t president when The Trail of Tears occurred.
For those of you who don’t know about The Trail of Tears, this started a troubling trend for the Democrat Party that they still continue to this very day; ignoring Supreme Court rulings. Cherokee Nation v. Georgia (1831) and Worcester v. Georgia (1832); were decisions that the Supreme Court passed down which stated that: “The native nations were sovereign nations and did not fall under the jurisdiction of the state.” Andrew Jackson did not care about these decisions since he signed the Indian Removal Act in 1830, and spent the remainder of his 2 terms removing native nations from their lands.
Andrew Jackson’s 2nd term Vice President, Martin Van Buren; became his successor and the 2nd Democrat President of the United States. One of Van Buren’s first orders as President was The Trail of Tears, NOT Andrew Jackson. He sent 7,000 troops to Georgia to “expedite the process” and march the remaining Cherokee holdouts the 1,200 miles to the “Indian Territory” presently known as Oklahoma. It is also important to note that the only other measurable thing that the 2nd Democratic President did was oppose the slaves on the Amistad having their freedom.
The 3rd Democratic President is often referred to as the worst president, though there are many others who also compete for this title. James Polk is considered a bad president because he was the first president to invade a foreign country (Mexico) for land in the Mexican American War; now known as New Mexico, Arizona, and California. This is yet another case that Liberals always refer to when trash talking American History.
The 4th Democratic President was Franklin Pierce. Another shining example of Democrat racism when he signed the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854 which repealed the ban of slavery in the western territories. This one occurrence, caused a political revival as Abolitionist Democrats, Whigs, and Free Soilers all united to create the Republican Party. Franklin Pierce in essence, was the pebble that started the landslide that soon became the American Civil War.
The 5th Democratic President was James Buchanan, and just like his 4 predecessors, was a horrible and incredibly bigoted president. Not only was he racist, but he also declared a war on Mormons, calling their community a “strange system of terrorism”. He also blamed the abolitionists for the upcoming Civil War stating; “Before many years the abolitionists will bring war upon this land.” But didn’t do anything in an attempt to stop it from happening, not to mention that he was very influential in the Dred Scott Decision.
So the next time a Liberal tries to tell you that Republicans are racist, or that the Democrats have done many positive things to help the Black Community in this country. Just refer them to some actual history. Knowledge is power! History matters! Knowledge of history is just as important as current events, especially when history just continuously repeats itself. To understand history, to remain current, and to utilize common sense is vital for the future of the people of America.
African Americans, and all other minorities should NEVER vote for the Democrat Party. It’s Common Sense!
