Lets look at history, Republicans gave women the right to vote, Democrats did not.
No they didn't, the entire women's suffrage movement was part of the Progressive era, in which both parties had people in them as such. In fact Woodrow Wilson signed the amendment.
Democrats are associated with creating hate groups such as the KKK and Black Panthers.
They didn't create them, they were formed independently. While say the KKK was very Democrat (they're not in the modern era, now they're Republicans) the Democrats themselves weren't exactly united for them because the Democrats had a grip on Catholic voters which the KKK was hostile too and at the DNC 1924 they lost a vote to condemn the KKK by just one vote. Hell the KKK's main strength wasn't even in the South, during the peak of the KKK in the 1920's the biggest membership was in Indiana, a Republican state. The KKK themselves supported the immigration quota's along with Prohibition, programs the Republicans supported and passed.
As for the Black Panthers, they were not such a simple group of people to call them a hate group, in fact they were anti-Racists and they focused on combating racism. Overall they did many things, they provided schooling for their younger members which was better than the Public School (which you can tell just by the fact that many former Black Panthers have PhD's now) they provided free food and they were all about self defense (hence why they walked around with guns). They themselves were Communists, at least they were supposed to be, by the end they didn't have much ideological consensus as many people outright disagreed with Communism so any mention that they were Communists should have a huge asterisk next to it. That said they weren't really about Democrats, they may have supported Democratic candidates, but they weren't aligned with the party.
It's pretty ironic for Democrats to make everything about Race, War on women, when Democrats created Hate groups and were the ones who were at war with women. Who freed the slaves?Ã¯Â»Â¿ Not Democrats, if Democrats had their way we would still have African Americans as slaves.
Um no, the Democratic party back then was even less united than today, in fact it broke apart in 1860 over the issue of slavery/secession. To say if they had their way is a bit inaccurate, especially considering the Republicans didn't want to ban slavery either until the middle of the Civil War.
MSNBC trying to use fear tactics to gain votes for their Candidate. It's funny that MSNBC talks about all these things Democrats have done for women, but they really haven't done any of it. Where is that equal Pay that Democrats kept promising over the years?
That was the first bill Obama signed into law.
Where is the gay Marriages across USA that Democrats promised?
That's not something Democrats promise nationwide, hell Obama flip flopped on this issue. Otherwise the DOMA is repealed and more and more states are allowing Gay Marriage.
Too many broken promises, too late. If the Gallup poll is anything to go by, Americans have woken up from the lies of The Democrats. Not toÃ¯Â»Â¿ say Republicans are so much better.
Keep in mind, Gallup was an outlier. No other poll has shown Romney in the lead. People are trying to figure out why that was.
