1. Since its founding in 1854 as the Anti-Slavery Party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks.

2. It was Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who pushed to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and sent troops to Arkansas to desegregate schools.

3. President Eisenhower appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to the U.S. Supreme Court, which resulted in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision to end school segregation.

4.  It was Eisenhower who took action to effectively end segregation in the military.

5. It was the Republicans who fought to free blacks from slavery and amended the Constitution to grant blacks:

FREEDOM (13th Amendment),

CITIZENSHIP (14th Amendment) and

THE RIGHT TO VOTE (15th Amendment).

6. Republicans passed the civil rights laws of the 1860s, including the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and the Reconstruction Act of 1867 that was designed to establish a new government system that was fair to blacks in the Democrat-controlled South.

7. Republicans started the NAACP.

8. Affirmative action was initiated by Republican President Richard Nixon’s 1969 Philadelphia Plan (crafted by black Republican Art Fletcher) to set the nation’s fist goals and timetables for its enforcement. Although affirmative action now has been turned by the Democrats into an unfair quota system, affirmative action was begun by Nixon to counter the harm caused to blacks when Democrat President Woodrow Wilson in 1912 kicked all blacks from federal government jobs.

9. In 1967, showing his anger with Dr. King’s protest against the Vietnam War, Johnson referred to Dr. King as “that Nigger preacher.”

10. The party of Abraham Lincoln, continues to fight unpopular battles in the name of human dignity and Justice.

An authentic republican believes in a system that foments individuality, freedom, and JUSTICE. The governmemt’s role is to preserve justice, and law & order in order to create an environment that is fair and fertile for growth. Anything more than that has granted authoritative leaders the power to expand the size of government-together with its inefficiencies, corporativism, nepotism, media driven propaganda, and corruption.

Nowadays, many Republicans have fallen victims to the overwhelming strength, size, and temptation that comes with supporting an omnipotent government. Nevertheless, the Republican Party has now in Donald Trump a leader that can give power back to its citizens, and enforce once again a Constitution that guarantees the preservation of our rights, our freedoms, and the opportunity to pursue our dreams.
