Not really. Under Eisenhower the top tax rate was over 90 percent.
The Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Southern Democrat Party. The fact that MLK was a Republican is meaningless, as was Jackie Robinson’s membership.
Branch Rickey selected Jackie Robinson because Robinson could hit a baseball.
Any notion that Rickey cared whether Robinson was a Republican is baloney.
Ike was a conservative of the old balance the budget, pay as you go school. But that was certainly better than the alternative of the FDR school of government. Afterwards Kennedy opened the White House to the Keynesians and over the years the leftists took to that like a dry alcoholic to a bottle of booze.
