November 17, 1973

On November 17, 1973, then US President Richard Nixon told the AP news-source “people have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.” Well, history knows how that turned out. He was a crook and was forced to resign. Now turn the time dial forward 47 years and the American public had to vote out the next crook, because his political party was just as interested in lying and cheating the American people as the Orange One was and determined to keep him in power. Unfortunately a substantial section of the American voting public became more gullible and superstitious over the next 50 years and continued to believe his lies. It is so true. You CAN fool some of the people all of the time. Just hold up a strawman that looks, worships, and sounds different than them, tell them they are right to hate that strawman, and the angry masses will follow you into hell itself.
