It was the Republicans That Abolished Slavery

From Wikipedia:
The United States Republican Party is the second oldest currently existing political party in the United States after its great rival, the Democratic Party. It emerged in 1854 to combat the Kansas Nebraska Act which threatened to extend slavery into the territories, and to promote more vigorous modernization of the economy

And again Americans are highlighting slavery as an issue, with a top diplomat pointing to a New Zealand company that is producing goods “tainted by modern slavery”.

Where are the unions on this issue? Modernizing work conditions and ensuring fair pay should be their bread and butter.

My point Рit is commonly accepted that the right wing care only about money and it is the left that cares about people. It surprised me that it was the action of the Republicans that stopped slavery because  a card carrying leftie I naturally assumed it was the Democrats.
Always judge a political party on it’s actions and not on the prevailing rhetoric of the day.
