From 1933 till January 1969 there was only one republican elected president and that president Dwight D Eisenhower by today's republican party standards would be considered a raving socialist. It was the Democratic party that pulled America out of the republican created great depression of the dirty 30's, stood with Americans and the world defeating Nazis and its axis.
It was the Democratic party that created Americas present day social programs from seniors pensions to medicare. It was democratic party that backed unions that helped an industrial revolution that created the greatest middle class in world history. It was a democrat vision that put Americans in space and finally on the moon.
These were the years that made America great, the envy of the world. These were Americas golden years of the 20th century, a time when Americans stood together for decades and rejected the right wing politics of selfishness, greed and division.
