EYE sure do miss the good old days when the media informed the public and kept public officials from lying to us instead of enabling them. Democracy demands an informed electorate.
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." (as cited in Padover, 1939, p. 89)
". . . whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that, whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them right." (as cited in Padover, 1939, p. 88)
Making America Great Again, one #poorlyeducated voter at a time.
You won't see this on TV, but, 20 percent of Donald Trump supporters disagreed with freeing the slaves after the civil war.
According to P.P.P., 70 percent of Mr. Trump’s voters in South Carolina wish the Confederate battle flag were still flying on their statehouse grounds. (It was removed last summer less than a month after a mass shooting at a black church in Charleston.) The polling firm says that 38 percent of them wish the South had won the Civil War. Only a quarter of Mr. Rubio’s supporters share that wish, and even fewer of Mr. Kasich’s and Mr. Carson’s do. Nationally, the YouGov data show a similar trend: Nearly 20 percent of Mr. Trump’s voters disagreed with the freeing of slaves in Southern states after the Civil War. Only 5 percent of Mr. Rubio’s voters share this view.Donald Trump expected to draw more than 10,000 at Huntsville Rally

This sort of racism has been prevalent in Republican politics for decades. Trump is just saying out loud what other Republicans merely suggest.We have already established there are two kinds of republicans, millionaires/billionaires and Suckers. Suckers are the people the millionaires/billionaires convince to vote against their self interest.
