Yeah, and so what the **** has happened to GOP ever since? Even Jesus would have wept. By the way, I'm still a registered Republican, so don't tell me I don't know what's going on. Ask yourself, how do you think Newt Gingrich would have voted or acted on all those things today?

Which party does the modern KKK support? Which party do Confederate flag waving rednecks support? Which party claims the current president isn't an American? Hint: Same answer as yours. Your "quiz" actually highlights how far the Republican Party as fallen. The party of Lincoln has become the party of racist hicks.

Gee, you forgot President Johnson signing the Bill of Rights over republican opposition. Typical republican, "Hey, don't look over there look over here" http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii160/emal2me/A%20political%202/20080819__CD24DEMS3Bp1_300.jpg
