Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists: Marxism in the Civil War (apparently this is written by neo-confederates, so maybe don't use this one. You shouldn't buy anything, much less books, from Amazon anyway.)

Just google "marx and the american republican party" for more info.

Not surprisingly, there are neo confederates who'll actually tell you that: Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists: Marxism in the Civil War

> Wow, Your delusions are powerfull,

The Democrats were the conservative party in 1861. They certainly weren't radical liberals.

In comparison, the Republican party, founded by abolitionists and some socialists, were the progressive, insurgent party of the time. That's why an entire book called Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists: Marxism in the Civil War was written that talked about the leftists in Lincoln's administration.

Why do you think Karl Marx (who was an astute observer of the American civil war) wrote to Lincoln? Why do you think so many leftists, veterans from the 1848 revolutions, especially German officers, were in the Union army?

Why do you think Lincoln himself said that labor becomes before capital, a very socialistic concept?

I can't even imagine what you think about the early history of the Republican party, but it certainly doesn't resemble today's reactionary GOP.

> Here is a concept for you to try and grasp, Conservatives are the Brake, Progressives are the Gas.

The way that radical conservatives have been trying to dismantle long-standing programs and court decisions, in addition to attacking long-standing institutions, shows that your assertion is inaccurate.

> Conservatives want to go slow, Progressives want to go fast,

> Do you accept that framing?

No, because the modern conservatism is dependent on moving fast and acting quickly to dismantle regulations and overturn laws without any thought on slippery slopes and unintended consequences.

Today's conservatives are not very conservative at all, especially under Trump. The idea that they are cautiously rational is out the window.

Why do you think George Will left the Republican party?
