The above picture depicts a pay receipt of an African American Revolutionary War soldier, fighting on the front lines for Freedom and Liberty. His name recorded in history as Pomp Kearns, American Revolutionary fighter. God Bless Mr. Kearns and all who served!! African Americans were not always enslaved, then arose the Democratic Party and well, let’s review a little history….
Now let’s review more truth. The Democratic Party Platform
1840, 1844, 1848 During these years the Republican Party did not exist
All efforts by abolitionists to interfere with questions of slavery are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences and have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the union.
1852 During this year the Republican Party did not exist
The Democratic Party will resist all attempts at renewing – in Congress or out of it – the agitation of the slavery question (ie., will oppose all efforts to abolish slavery)
The Democratic Party will abide by and adhere to a faithful execution of the acts settled by the Congress.
In the years preceding this platform, numerous occasions had arisen in Congress in which proslavery forces sought to extend slavery and antislavery forces sought to prohibit it. For example, in 1820 the Democratic Congress passed the Missouri Compromise. The law first repealed the provisions of the original 1789 anti-slavery law forbidding the extension of slavery into any federal territory, and then authorized the extension of slavery into new federal territories. Founding Fathers still alive at that time – including John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Rufus King – loudly denounced the Missouri Compromise and the expansion of slavery. Subsequently, John Quincy Adams and Daniel Webster became congressional leaders in opposing slavery while those such as John C. Calhoun fought aggressively to strengthen and expand it. This plank in the Democratic platform condemned the efforts of abolitionists such as John Quincy Adams (a member of Congress at that time, and titled the hell-hound of abolition for his efforts against slavery), asserting that the end of slavery would not only reduce the happiness of America but would also lead to its destruction.
1856 Republican Party Exists
As our Republican fathers, when they had abolished slavery in all our national territory, ordained that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property This was the first Republican platform, and it contained only nine planks; however, six of the nine set forth bold declarations of equality and civil rights for African-Americans, based on the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. This emphasis on racial justice was the primary reason that the Republican Party was formed. In May 1854, the Democratic-controlled Congress passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, extending slavery into federal territories where it had previously been forbidden, thus increasing the national area in which slavery would be permitted. This law led to what was called “bleeding Kansas,” where pro-slavery forces came pouring into the territory and fought violent battles against the anti-slavery inhabitants of that territory. Following the passage of this pro-slavery law, a number of the anti-slavery Democrats in Congress –along with anti-slavery members from other political parties, including the Whigs, Free-Soldiers, without due process of law, it becomes our duty to maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts to violate it for the purpose of establishing slavery in the territories of the United States. We deny the authority of Congress, of a territorial legislation, 9or) of any individual or association of individuals, to give legal existence to slavery in any territory of the United States.
raradiolistening.com: It is clear within these historical writings, the Democratic Party is the party of slavery, the promotion of it, the expansion of it and the misery of it all belongs to the Democrat Party. The Republican Party from it’s inception argued in favor of abolishment and inevitably shed blood for it’s abolishment. The Truth must be told.
