• How was America more free in the past?

    Best answer: America was never free. It is true for a period after WW2 before the 80s, poor and middle class white men had more financial freedom, because they were paid more (comparatively) than they are now.

    Best answer: Chamberlain never wanted war - neither did Hitler. And it was Roosevelt who created the problems that led to war. The issues between Germany and Poland were relatively minor and based on Germany gaining access to provide support and protection to Danzig and East Prussia. Up until Britain involved themselves in the issue, Germany and Poland were actively negotiating.

    Chamberlain was called an appeaser because he preferred to use negotiation to fix problems rather than resort to war. The reason he had a sudden change of heart was that after he supported the Munich Agreement in Germany's favor, Roosevelt threatened to withdraw all support to Britain unless he changed his mind.

    Thus, it was because of pressure from the United States that he reversed his stance in the Munich Agreement and began working against Hitler. This was also the reason that he gave Poland false assurances to come to their aid in the event of an attack by Hitler so that Poland would end negotiations with Hitler altogether - ensuring that it would escalate into an attack.

    Chamberlain may have declared war on Germany, but he was still against using conflicts to settle international disputes. It took until a war-obsessed Winston Churchill to take over as PM 8 months later for the war to actually commence.

    Stalin's part in the whole thing was that they were also wanting to start a war with Germany - to spread Communism into Europe. But he couldn't do it alone - he needed Britain's help. And since Britain couldn't declare war before Germany attacked Poland, Stalin had to wait. It was Hitler who had to make the first move.

    Germany never intended to invade Russia - its role was a position of defense. Hitler just wanted to keep Communism out of Germany (which was the door to the rest of Europe). Operation Barbarossa was a preemptive attack (defense). Hitler found out Russia was building up its forces to attack Germany and when he found out what was going on, he attacked first.

  • How come Republicans don't know what a political shift is?

    Best answer: Civil rights didn't surface as a political priority until the mid 1950s. The dems made the political decision to rebrand and embrace it. The opposition came f/ the GOP and the south. MANY people switched party over this highly charged issue. It's how the south became so red today.
    Strom Thurmond is symbolic of the transition.
    "A magnet for controversy during his nearly half-century Senate career, Thurmond switched parties because of his support for the conservatism of the Republican presidential candidate Senator Barry Goldwater. In the months before switching, he had "been critical of the Democratic Administration for ... enactment of the Civil Rights Law",[2] while Goldwater "boasted of his opposition to the Civil Rights Act, and made it part of his platform."[3]"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strom_Thur...

    This led to the southern strategy.
    "In American politics, the Southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.[1][2][3]"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_s...

    Martin Luther King weighed in on the Republican party during his lifetime. In Chapter 23 of his autobiography, King writes this about the 1964 Republican National Convention:

    "The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right."

    I'm old enough to remember all this. Righties will deny history as recorded before they will admit what they know is bad for business. They will never fix their racism problem w/ denial because admission is the first step to recovery.

    Best answer: Between 1917 and 1965 immigration to the US was very restricted. While the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 had already excluded immigrants from China, the immigration of people from Asian countries in addition to China was banned by the sweeping Immigration Act of 1917, also known as the Asiatic Barred Zone Act, which also banned homosexuals, people with intellectual disability, and people with an anarchist worldview. The Emergency Quota Act was enacted in 1921, followed by the Immigration Act of 1924. The 1924 Act was aimed at further restricting immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe, particularly Jews, Italians, and Slavs, who had begun to enter the country in large numbers beginning in the 1890s, and consolidated the prohibition of Asian immigration. Immigration patterns of the 1930s were affected by the Great Depression. In the final prosperous year, 1929, there were 279,678 immigrants recorded, but in 1933, only 23,068 moved to the U.S. In the early 1930s, more people emigrated from the United States than to it, Finally there was the U.S. government sponsored a Mexican Repatriation program which was intended to encourage people to voluntarily move to Mexico, but thousands were deported against their will. Altogether about 400,000 Mexicans were repatriated half of them US citizens.Most of the Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazis and World War II were barred from coming to the United States. In the post-war era, the Justice Department launched Operation *******, under which 1,075,168 Mexicans were deported in 1954
