“Take Our Country Back”… “Make America Great Again”… Hmmm?
The Game The Republican Party Has Been Playing Is Not About Facts Or Truth
It Is About Using Hate To Manipulate
When signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 President Johnson turned to Sargent Shriver, who was sitting next to him and said “We just lost the South.” That was the moment when the mass exodus of the last remaining Dixie Democrats happened. They leapt in the arms of the Republican Party and the transformation of the two parties occurred. Republicans were overtaken by the “conservatives” (code name for selfish, backwards bigots) and the Democrats became the new liberals, the stand for civil rights and progressive Government.
In 2000 Right-wing judges overruled the voters and placed one of their puppets & his handler (Bush/Cheney) in the White House. What happened next was 8 years of unrestrained corruption, incompetence & greed that nearly destroyed this nation.
No amount of spin could erase the horror of the Bush/Cheney regime. Thus before President Obama was sworn in they launched a nonstop, no holds barred smear campaign. Designed to dehumanize, demonize & tear him down on every level.
