    for the better. The New Deal Democratic platform changed everything and everyone runs around pretending they respect it and that it's why they are a Democrat which is already redefined thanks to the moves towards civil rights that caused most AA to vote for Democrats instead of Republicans who used to be the abolitionists pro civil rights party as you say.

    If people want to redefine the party in their own image let them run on their own platform(in fact that's the rule and how it was done), but no, you can't excuse cuts to SS and then claim you are inspired by the New Deal or Great Society because "Obama is teh awesome."

    I don't negotiate grand bargains with deficit terrorists!
