The Dixiecrats moved to the Republican Party in the late 70s and early 80s.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My Grandfather, a lifelong Democrat, was selected for the Alabama Delegation that went to the GOP Convention when Richard Nixon was the GOP Candidate, simply because he had changed Parties. He was a very well respected gentleman in Montgomery, Alabama. He didn’t actually attend because of declining health, so the alternate went in his place.

I still contend that in my heart of hearts I’m a Dixiecrat mostly because of Southern Politics. I’d register as a Democrat if I lived in a State where I had to declare when registering to vote. (We don’t in Georgia.) And where I live, most of the local Republicans act like National Democrats . . . stuck on stupid. We even have our own little “mini-Soros” running the local Republican Party from the sideline.

I think Simcox is an ass for running. His criminal history will destroy his campaign, but the prima donna cares less about issues, including illegal immigration, than getting press.
Hayworth would be a better candidate.

Agree. Hayworth or Deakin will probably get my support.

Why didn’t you post most of this stuff before the election? If you knew about Obama’s buddy and family connections you surely knew about his involvement in getting home loans to those who could never pay them off.

What’s up with that? You’re doing a post mortem dissection on something you could have helped save had you spoken up loud enough when people needed to hear it.

If McPain has no worries, it’s because of the Arizona GOP and the people of the state of Maricopa.

I was at the Maricopa Co. Precinct Committee conference last January '08. There we had a straw poll of all of the Republican candidates running in the primaries at that time (McShame, Thompson, Romney, Paul, ect....) which candidate would be the absolute UNACCEPTABLE candidate for president of the whole field?

McShame took #1 in that whole field (of 9 choices).

Three weeks later, he "won" easily with over 75% in the state of AZ.

Either voter fraud happened (which is quite possible...many of the voting sites required and requested "provisional" ballots from those who were already registered Republicans, including those who have repeatedly voted in every election), or the rest of the state (liberal Tucson) tilted the scale.

McShame, is not well liked in Maricopa Co. Hasn't been in a long time. Yet, they held their noses in the last general election, and look where it got them. An Obamination.

With all due respect, screw the McVain lovers and their ilk. They are about as sharp as all the Ahnold pushers. We try their way and lose all.

More snippets from the article:

Simcox says the registration history reflects his misgivings about McCain and others in the party.

Simcox’s Simcox says, “This campaign is about Republicans holding a mirror up to themselves and finding out what they’ve become.”

(Fixed the typo in the original article. Everyone needs an editor)

I like this guy!

“Strike One against him right there. Doesn’t AZ have anyone that can run against McCain that is from AZ, is a longtime member of the GOP, and conservative?”

The Arizona RED STAR is a commie propaganda rag trying their best to get the most liberal person possible elected to the Az senate.

Hey....don’t blame me. I just found out about it myself. We’ll get no place if we start blaming people for things they didn’t do and do so without any knowledge of the person. What we do need to do is gather all the info we can, figure out what is true and what is not and act accordingly. I know people that will argue over everything. We have to put these people aside for now and get things done and done fast.

I agree the rag is liberal, but the facts don’t lie — lifelong Republican — no! He could have told the truth but lying you are a lifelong Republican when are not is a deal breaker.
