8. This democratic party stands for
civil rights, the right to organize, and equality for LGBT, not to mention health insurance for the old and poor, social security, and.. well... pretty much the opposite of what the repigs stand for. The difference between now and then is that the party stood for helping people survive the depression back then but that part has long been lost since the 1960's. Survival liberalism was replaced by improving quality of life liberalism. I think today we could use some of the survival liberalism back it's too bad LBJ and dems since got rid of it.
