And now, further news of this forgotten incident, from Consortium News:
"A Russian government report, which corroborated allegations that Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign interfered with President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage negotiations in 1980, was apparently kept from the Democratic chairman of a congressional task force that investigated the charges a dozen years later."
Yes, Americans, here is the truth about our "democracy:" Neither of the two "presidents" who sent our country on the road to economic, military and social disaster was actually elected in a fair election. Bush was placed in power by the greatest act of Supreme Court corruption in our nation's history, and Reagan took power through what is not a figurative, but a literal, actual act of treason.
When you look about you at the open corruption of Republican elected officials, backed up by the ignorant insanity of the teabaggers, the endless parade of vicious demagogues paid to whip up hatred, the looting of our wealth, the disgrace of our country around the world, you must remember that none of this was the result of a fair choice made by the American people. It was all brought about by two criminal seizures of power by what amounted to nothing more than temporary dictators.
That is what the Republican party is all about today. As their base of the elderly, the ignorant, the (dare I say it) white, inexorably diminishes, do you think that even these abominable acts represent the limit of what they will get up to in order to serve their masters?
