The Democrat Party is a coalition of the oppressed and formerly oppressed Americans.
And who was doing the oppressing? Social conservatives of the Protestant variety.
Here is one example dealing with the public schools.
Separate Roman Catholic and Jewish schools were established in the mid-nineteenth century, first in New York City, and later across the country. This was in response to the overly anti-Catholic and anti-Jewish positions presented by most textbooks used in public schools throughout the nation, in the interest of promoting Protestant homogamy throughout the United States.Until the Republican Party does something about being identified with oppressors it will be in a world of hurt.
My suggestion? Champion marijuana legalization. It would show that the party stands not only for Economic Liberty but also Cultural Liberty.
