Racial equality stems from individual freedoms, a tenant of the Republican party (the old Republican party). Why have we been silent while the Democrats have re-written history, hijacked Lincoln’s legacy and painted the Republicans as bigots?

I think a lot of the problem is that Republicans are better at knowing what we are against than what we're for and have been for since the founding of the party. It's well and good to be against the Democrats because there's a lot that Dems are for that we should be against, but that's only half the battle. We need to be just as much for Lincoln and Sumner's ideas of universal individual liberty as we are against the Democrats' freedom-eroding, special interest, us against them policies.
