The religious right fanatics running the Republican Party truly are fascist. In both, money forecloses on fresh thinking and favors adherence to dogma. People look at the situation and say, okay, our elected officials aren't responding to what the people want or need, they're responding to the interests of those who are already wealthy and powerful, so they advocate for things like publicly financed elections.

Census Bureau figures for 2017 released this week show nearly 1 in 5 children in America still lives in poverty making them the poorest age group in our country. Then political leadership can voice common ideals, and aid in their realization. Of the 22 chapters within part 2, there are 5 which concentrate on education. It's only because people can speak and instantly connect with other people around that world that we can call out our plutocrats and network media for feeding us nonstop bullshit for the past 30+ years. The first part of this report consists of the findings of the Citizens' Commission on Civil Rights on the record of the Clinton administration on civil rights.
