I remember in High School in 1988. We were studying History. I remember that the Joe McCarthy period came up. He was portrayed even back then as some crazy wingnut. Everybody just accepted what the book said as fact. It is amazing now to think of how right the guy actually was. Also, the left has successfully dumbed down the general population. If we cannot win in this arena, we are done. You would b surprised to hear some of my normally intelligent friends say the stupidest things as fact that is fed to them by the media.
