Reading: The Authority Gap by Mary Sieghart
- Dec 8, 2013
The opposition to the confederacy literally called themselves "the conservatives" I'd recommend reading some Eric Foner Civil War and Reconstruction because you clearly don't know what you are talking about here.At that time, the democratic party was the conservative party. The biggest mistake the Left made then was not liquidating the main social base of conservatism at the time, the southern planters.
Harder to push propaganda when you can't control the narrative.Yeah. The support of 40, 45% of the population is an effective shield.
Nixon’s support tanked before his political downfall. You’d need to see something similar before it’d be expected that Trump would have actual issues.
