Just yesterday, I was talking with a friend about how the wealthy slave-holding Southern landowners were able to talk the poor, landless, non-slave-owning peasants of the South into fighting the Civil War to uphold the rights of the wealthy against the good of their own families. Those are the Bush voters of 2000, the Republican voters of 2011.
Actually the Democratic Party has roots with the "wealthy slave-holding Southern landowners"who enslaved the blacks and tried to prevent their freedom and right to vote during and after the Civil War.
