2018 holds more promise in America than any year since 1980. Taxes are going down, employment is up, the economy is solidly improving. Consumer confidence is high and the rising tide is raising ALL boats.
The sun is rising again in American not because anything Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi or Ralph Northam or any of their ilk has done. This sunrise is brought to you by the Republican Party and Donald Trump.
The Republican Party has always been the party of equal rights and prosperity FOR ALL, Blacks, women, and ethnic minorities. Oh yeah, that’s right. The Democrat party will deny it, but I’ll prove it, using history.
I want to throw some facts at you. Go get a pencil and check off the ones you knew and see how well you score:
1854 – The Republican Party is formed riding the wave of antislavery fervor, giving Americans a strong alternative to the pro-slavery Democrats.
1863 – The first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation.
1865 — Republican-controlled 38th Congress passes the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery over the objections of the democrat party.
1872 — First African-American governor, Pinckney Pinchback, a Republican was inaugurated in Louisiana was inaugurated.
In 1917 – The first woman in Congress, Republican Representative Jeannette Rankin of Montana was sworn in.
1919 – Over the objections of Democrats, the Republican-controlled 66th Congress passes the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote.
1924 – Again Democrats are defeated as Republican-controlled 68th Congress and President Calvin Coolidge grant citizenship to Native Americans.
1928 — First Hispanic U.S. Senator, Senator Octaviano Larrazolo, a New Mexico Republican is sworn in.
1949 – Republican Margaret Chase Smith of Maine becomes the first woman to serve in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
1954 — Brown vs Board of Education strikes down racial segregation in public schools; with the majority opinion written by Chief Justice Earl Warren, former Republican Governor of California.
1957 – Republican President Dwight Eisenhower signs the 1957 Civil Rights Act.
1959 — First Asian-American U.S. Senator, Hiram Fong, a Republican from Hawaii is seated.
1964 — Senate passes the 1964 Civil Rights Act when the Republican leader, Everett Dirksen, defeats Democrat filibuster.
1981 — Sandra Day O’Connor, appointed by President Reagan, becomes the first woman on the Supreme Court.
2005 – George W Bush selects Condoleeza Rice to be his Secretary of State. She was the first black woman ever to hold that position.
Many of you are confused. You have been told for decades that Democrats are the champions of minorities and women. Yet there it is, the cold hard facts of history.
Republicans have never waged a war on women, in fact, women’s suffrage is credited squarely to the GOP; Rep. James R. Mann, a Republican from Illinois, introduced the 19th Amendment in the House and it finally passed by an overwhelming majority in 1919, after Democrats blocked it for decades. Shortly thereafter Republican-controlled Senate also passed it, clearing the way for ratification by the states.
As for the various civil rights acts and the constitutional amendment buttressing them, not one Democrat in Congress voted for the Fourteenth Amendment. Not one Democrat in Congress voted for the Fifteenth Amendment. Not one voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1875.
Why do I bring all of this up? Simple, good things happen to America with Republicans in charge. Making America Great Again is being spearheaded by Republicans.
Individual tax cuts are directed squarely at the middle class. The corporate tax cuts are sending employment in this country through the roof and driving up wages. FOR EVERY DEMOGRAPHIC!
A red wave in November will only promise more of the same, America becoming even greater again. I mentioned a rising tide raising all boats. Tax cuts aren’t respecters of persons. They go to men AND WOMEN of all stripes.
Republicans have consistently stood up for women and minorities for over 154 years. In 2018 they are raising the tide again for everyone. History has proven it. Americas future will prove it too!!
