    A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Equality: How the Far Right Co-Opted American Populism

    Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina voted 90% for Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936 to bring Social Security, the WPA, the PWA, CCC, TVA, public works programs that brought federal jobs and benefits to the rural south and all of America.  There was no Voting Rights Act.  These were white Southerners voting for Democrats.

    The Southerners really don't want what the Kochs are trying to sell.  The people of America really don't know what the Kochs are trying to bring to the USA.

    Voters should select people to represent them in their government. People in government should not select people who may vote!
