    'specially a history teacher... quick rule of thumb for dealing with K-12 history class is that pretty much everything they ever taught you is wrong. And I mean everything.

    Fantastic, we've got a thread full of revisionists and conspiracy theorists.

    Did you guys know that Jesus was a time traveler?

    Oh no, not you Peguy.

    You're probably the only person worth listening to.

    I'm not a conspiracy theorist. It is a fact however, that pretty much the entirety of the high school history curriculum in the average American school is fictional. For example, people did not believe the Earth was flat in Columbus's time (that having been debunked some-odd 2,000 years prior), slavery was not a contributing factor to the American Civil War, the Wright brothers were neither the first people to take flight nor the first to even film it, Edison came up with about as many inventions as I have in his lifetime, and so on and so forth.

    Slavery wasn't even a contributing factor to the Civil War? ORLY? Dude, I was born in West Virginia. Want to know why it's called West Virginia? Because the rocky, plantation-free Western half of Virginia seperated itself from the slavery loving Eastern side. I agree that there were other factors involved in the Civil War, like the expansion of railroads, but to say it wasn't a factor at all is a bunch of revisionist shit.

    I'll give you the myth of flat earth, but if you've come up with as many inventions as Thomas Edison, I'd love to see exactly what you've contributed to our society thus far, Aleksei.

    Libertarians were among the most active abolitionists in the 19th Century, but your ideology prohibits you from acknowledging that. Ever heard of Frederick Douglass? How about William Lloyd Garrison? I think there is a Derangement Syndrome support group near you. . .


    Democrats have been considered "liberal" since the 1890's but didn't represent Civil Rights until the 1940's and were actually largely socially conservative, so socially conservative in fact that the "Solid South" lost many of their Democrats to the Republicans as the two parties changed.
    But what about Democrats like Grover Cleveland in the 1880s and 1890s, who was strong on civil service reform and civil liberties? What about the Democrats who sided with the Union in the Civil War? What is your definition of "representing civil rights?"


    Prohibition was neither a Democrat nor a Republican issue, nor was Progressivism. That doesn't change the fact that the Republican and Democratic parties have both changed considerably over the course of this nation's history.
    I never said they didn't. I am saying that they didn't just pull a magic switcheroo 100 years ago, and that "Democrat" and "Republican" really don't say much specifically about one's beliefs without a lot more context. Are you now telling me that I am right about that?

    Umm. . . that was part of it.
