Learning Your History

A journal on Democratic Underground dug up the Republican Party Platform of 1956. You will not regret learning what heinous plans the Republicans had in those days. Examples of their goals:

Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of Sex.

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment;

ohmygoddess! The Republicans used to be feminists! *faints*
