7. How is this working out?

The Dixiecrats gave us Democratic majorities that enabled Kennedy/Johnson and that Congress to move this country WAY left!

Blue Dog Democrats - Democrats who had to be fiscal and social conservatives to get elected and reelected in the South - gave us Congressional majorities with Obama that passed the most progressive legislation since Johnson!

Both eras the country responded with a lurch back to the right, and the left entrenched and went even more left while purging the "impure" party representatives.

Democrats who know their history are seeing it repeat again. Santayana "yada yada."

If you'll look at the recent southern primaries, you'll see we remember "our history." We are just trying to help the Democratic Party win for a change!

Winning will help change the South - again!
