Joe Kennedy will address the nation after President Trump’s State of the Union Address. When he or any Democrat calls us racist, which they will; please remember this!
The Founding of the Republican Party
On July 6, 1854, just after the anniversary of the nation, an anti-slavery state convention was held in Jackson, Michigan. The hot day forced the large crowd outside to a nearby oak grove. At this ‘Under the Oaks Convention’ the first statewide candidates were selected for what would become the Republican Party.
United by desire to abolish slavery, it was in Jackson that the Platform of the Under the Oaks Convention read; ‘we will cooperate and be known as REPUBLICANS’ Prior to July, smaller groups had gathered in intimate settings like the schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin. However, the meeting in Jackson would be the first ever mass gathering of the Republican Party.
The name ‘Republican’ was chosen, alluding to Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party and conveying a commitment to the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
WAKE UP AMERICA!
The Republican Party is far from Racist. President Trump is far from racist. We weren’t racist in 1854 and we aren’t now. Nothing has changed. Your Democratic friends are your worst enemies. You are still in chains! The Democrats disguise your chains as poor education, limited job opportunities, Obama phones and social/welfare programs but they are chains just the same! Harder to see but much more effective.
If you watch what is going on in Washington; people of color are being used as political fodder for the Democratic cannons. The Republicans are trying to bust these chains with creation of jobs and self worth for all. The Democrats didn’t have your best interests at heart in 1854 and they don’t have them now! Just saying
