Lyndon Johnson defeated Barry Goldwater by a landslide. Republicans blamed northern liberal republicans, esopecially Nelson Rockefeller for not getting behind the ticket. but in the south FOR THE FIRST TIME the republican candidate got the majority of WHITE voters including newly registered voters. Nixon re-aligns the party and with each BLACK riot, more white "LAW AND ORDER" voters came along, people who like, Norman Mailer were getting "tired of negroes and their rights." the popular term for it was "white backlash" AND NIXON was out for the backlash vote. so he put Spiro Agnew on the VEEPEE spot. while in 1968 there were still black republican, edward brooke from massachusetts, the democrats were not yet a black party. it was the nomination of agnew that changed that. JFK was the last president to get the majority of sourthern white voters, and shit is evident today. conservatives get votes from WHITE TRADITIONAL AMERICA and they are running shit. only two presidents since 64 been democrat is carter and clinton .... people dont realize this shit. once my generation gets older and these old dicksucking racist begin dying off its going to be alot better. i honestly thought america wanted bush out but now the republican party is the FEEL GOOD WHITE AMERICA PARTY and US black folks, young folks, HIP HOP FOLKS, anyone else outside the category of "WHITE MAN PRAY JESUS SHOOTS GAYS WITH GUNS" then we're fucked . yet powers in the numbrs and they are doing what their doing by keeping mafucks ignorant . more props to you all for now , but i cant wait til you all die .
