15. Me too. The Dems were quite different until the Cvil Rights movement

 

Communists were another thing altogether. Plus it became abundantly clear to liberals by the 40's that communism didn't work, at least where it was being tried. The USA doesn't happen in a vacuum.

This article is too simplistic. It leaves out shortages and the economy and how Carter told us we might have to sacrifice, but Reagan said "greed is good!" and assured everyone there was no need to sacrifice but go ahead and get more stuff! So everyone voted for Ronnie. Cheney said the same thing for Dubya.
