    The failure of Reconstruction, takeover of government by the KKK.... the barely-successful moves of the Progressives and Populists... McKinley, the W of his time, and the Spanish-American and Phillipine Wars (torture camps run by the US)... the corporatist robber-baron takeover of the government... the slaughter of people who tried to unionize.... the fetishising of "freedom of contract" regardless of duress....

    ....and then the first really Progressive President also being an active racist, a warmonger, a baldfaced liar, and severely anti-civil-liberties (that would be Wilson, and we still haven't repealed the Espionage Act of 1917, the PATRIOT Act of its day)....

    -5.63, -8.10. Learn about Duverger's Law.
