A woman asked Benjamin Franklin a question at the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787 according to Dr. James McHenry, another delegate: Woman: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Franklin: “A Republic, if you can keep it.” I think he'd be surprised we kept it THIS long.

"Regrettably, today’s “low-information voters” as Rush Limbaugh calls them – to include the useful idiots within the GOP’s “moderate” and libertarian wings – are simply too lazy, shortsighted or both to learn the facts." Bingo! This is what I encounter on a daily basis. These people let the MSM tell then what to think.
"Journalists should ask themselves whether we could have done a better job reporting on Sacramento and Chinatown." They should be, and they probably would if they were, in fact, real journalists, but they're not. Virtually all news services existing on American electronic mass-media today are nothing more that PR agencies with anchor-desk window dressing to make them look the part. They're as independent as your average Venezuelan or North Korean news service. Their 'narratives' are written for them at political think tanks like Media Matters, Think Progress and TPM. Do you all really think its a coincidence that when stories break, all these supposedly 'independent' news services all report the same thing, using the exact same words and phrases as one another? Every time? As I've said many times before, the script is written FOR them, and the little useful idiot hack 'journalists' enthusiastically play their part. Sadly enough, many of them probably believe that they ARE bona fide journalists, just as a pathological liar believes his or her own BS.
1959 is not long ago along the timeline of American history, IMHO. Sure, its a few years before I was born, but only one after my mother graduated high school. She's alive and mostly well (as well as to be expected, I suppose). My great aunt attended my nine-year-old daughters 1st birthday. MY aunt was born in 1909. As a girl, she met and talked with Civil War veterans. She died just a few months shy of her 100th birthday. When I was a boy, our next-door neighbors were two brothers who had both served in WWI. (Cool, old-school tattoos.) I grew up listening to their stories, and those of others. Its not that long ago if you're only one or two degrees of separation away from it. Just my opinion.
This time I didn't even need to read the column. Its like writing: Water: still getting things wet.
Go home Morgan, just go home.
He knows the media won't call him on it. The day he falls, I hope I have enough free time to watch (and laugh).
"If the people increasingly believe that bureaucrats try to alter realty to reflect preconceived ideologies or the goals of the particular regime in power, then America as we know it is finished." Well, turn the lights out when you leave Hanson, because without a real media, complete with REAL journalists and not ideologue hacks, you'll never convince a majority of Americans of these things. Whenever I point out the 'record number of deportations' lie, I get told by everyone that they believe the media over me, even when I show proof. They're not interested.
"The independent media digs out the truth." Yeah, and I'm Genghis Khan. What media there is is hardly independent, reading from the same Media Matters and TPM script as they all seem to do, and the truth is nothing they're remotely concerned with. I'm not sure I need to read this column further as it appears rife with false premises.
"Intelligence reports of vast stockpiles of WMD in Iraq proved as accurate as Bill Clinton's assertion that he never had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky." Are you saying that those intelligence agencies, many of which were from other nations, were lying? If so, then I reject your entire premise. As a matter of fact, if that IS what you mean, then you are guilty of that which you are trying to convey. There's being wrong, and/or acting on inaccurate information, like GWB and WMD (which Saddam had more than ample time to get rid of) and then there's lying ("If you like your health plan you can keep your health plan..."). There's a big difference between the two, regardless of whatever the contemporary public perception is.

"Health insurance has been outlawed, replaced with a welfare program that has been renamed "insurance." " Best description if this I've seen yet.
