Regarding a 3-31-17 Letter to Editor:

Dr. Sobel,

1. Statement: Liberals ended slavery.

Wrong.

The Republicans voted 100 percent to end slavery, the Dems only 23 percent for the 13th Amendment;

2. Statement: Liberals got the blacks to vote.

Wrong.

Republicans voted Yes, most Dems No;

3. Statement: Liberals end segregation, half correct.

1860-1960 Dems against, 1960-Present – for ending segregation;

4. Reconstruct the South: Republicans for, Dems against;

5. President Eisenhower pushed through the 1st civil rights bill in 1957.

Johnson voted against;

6. Later President Johnson gave us the war on poverty costing us $20 trillion.

Now we have 100 million on some type of welfare.
