Those laws and acts were passed when we actually had a democracy that was not bought out by the fucking billionaires and monied interests.
You can't say the same today. We got the voting rights act gutted. We have Citizen's United, we have fucking shit like the Hobby Lobby ruling.
You can not compare the past to now. We are not the same country.
We are NOW a damned oligarchy police state. I don't think LBJ would have gone for that. Or even JFK. Or even Wilson, and he wasn't any better then some of the worst we had. BUT he knew we had a democracy.
The mind set has changed, we had REAL NEWS when those laws were passed. We had an INFORMED, EDUCATED public who knew what their damned responsibility was as a tax paying citizen of this country. They fucking VOTED regularly. They used the services that tax money created. They helped create communities and build bridges, they CREATED our infrastructure which as I look out my window now, is in SHAMBLES.
Who's fault is that? BOTH sides fault as we had a DEM governor and mayor for nearly 15 years. Yet, our roads / bridges are falling apart.
You call that just one side? It takes TWO to tango as they say and if the repukes are at fault it is ALSO the dems fault for allowing it to HAPPEN.
That's the way a give and take work. You can NOT blame one side for this 50 yrs falling into a near totalitarian government. You can NOT blame one side for a fall into a police state and fascism.
Evil triumphs when good people do nothing.
Why the fuck was this guy allowed to have firearms?NRA and RW assholes, yes, I know.
How about eliminating Fox?
Thank you! I feel like people are fucking gaslighting, turning the lights dim and then denying that they do that to those who notice!! Talk about questioning reality! Seriously, I can say that CORPORATE DEMS are just as bad as repukes but no one sees that.
Did anyone bother to look up Hillary's voting record? Anyone? I did. She voted the same as any goddamned repuke. This is what I mean when I say that they are the same.
Bernie is a progressive, he is not apart of the DNC in the way that most corporate dems are, he is an outsider and obviously is being treated like that in the Media.
We would NOT have the issues we have today, if the damned DNC did their fucking job as Dems, instead they bed over for the money they have been paid by the 1% and barely a peep of protest. People are not as stupid as everyone assumes, what was the last approval rating of congress (together?) OH, yeah it was 11%.....
Yeah, not so sure about them "Not" being the same when their approval rating is and HAS been for a number of YEARS in the garbage.
That woman is a total asshole. It's my money and I want it NOW! We're not taking YOUR MONEY. We're taking OUR MONEY.
