me? interested in politics? noooooooo.



but the president of the school is a former US Senator so he has all these great connections in D.C. and around the world. The school offers internships at the NATO HQ for goodness sakes!! but i would probably intern at the capitol. i want to stay closer to US politics.

Just remember, if a strange senator offers you a ride home - just say no!

Lincoln the racist?

So...you are implying that Republicans are racist? He was not considered a liberal - he was considered a reformer, although abolitionists became disenchanted with him when he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which called for only the slaves in territory occuppied by the Confederacy to be set free. A "classic liberal" during this time held views that were conservative in nature - limited government and government by the people.
Look, the history of the Republican and Democratic Parties is very complicated. With that said, there are bad people in both parties even today. I get tired of the stereotypes. Lets talk about the music that brings us all together - U2!

- Herman, a Conservative!

back then, he was comparatively a liberal. trust me this is coming from a southern liberal whose great great great etc. grandparents owned slaves up until the Emancipation Proclamation.

However you're right. The parties are very complicated and both have their bad apples.

Even though you joined back in 2002 that was only your 2nd post so welcome!

I think we all ignore that there's some racism that exists on both sides, thanks to politics being taken too seriously. I've seen plenty of stuff about "stupid white folks" and I have to include that. I can't consider myself a racist for wondering what attracts minorities to the democratic party, if it isn't affirmative action.

And U2democrat - that's too bad you're NOT kidding. I've never lived down South, but I think the KKK gives a terrible name to whites, protestants, Christians, Americans, all of this. I think those who preach hatred/racism (especially in the name of God) should be frowned upon, and stripped from their right to assembly if they can't keep it peaceful. What a perversion the KKK is.

I don't know if I'd feel right calling Lincoln a liberal, but he was what we needed for the time being. Abolitionist, reformer, uniter, I think these words are a little more acceptable today. He was a bit far out of the mainstream at the time, and him becoming president might've been a miracle in itself. Just think if the South won the Civil War, we'd be so far behind our time.
