The Republican Party, with a long and proactive history of equal rights for all people, was founded in 1854 to abolish slavery. Our first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, issued the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves at the height of the Civil War leading to the defeat of the Confederacy and reunification of the nation. Republicans passed the 13th Amendment to the Constitution permanently abolishing slavery. Republicans passed the 14th Amendment granting citizenship and voting rights to black men. Republicans passed the 19th Amendment giving all women the right to vote. Republicans in the US House and Senate, in far greater percentages than Democrats, passed the 1964 and 1968 Civil Rights Acts. For decades since, Democrats have consolidated power in the cities where blacks have suffered from poverty, non-performing schools, urban blight, crime, and hopelessness despite government spending of $Trillions. It’s time for these failed Democrat regimes to end.
