A Bit of U.S. Political History

Many of my readers are already aware of Heather Cox Richardson and subscribe to her newsletter, so the information in this post may essentially be a repeat of what you have already read.

Nonetheless, for those who are not familiar with her or perhaps only occasionally read her newsletter, her latest edition (February 8) contains some valuable history of U.S. politics. Now this topic may not seem all that earth-shaking, but for anyone who has been following current political activities, you may be surprised to discover how the influence of past administrations is affecting the current one.

History, as they say, repeats itself. But in the current climate, it is not only repeating itself but expanding and affecting many U.S. citizens who are least equipped to handle many of the proposed modifications.

OK. I’ve said my piece. PLEASE, if you haven’t already, go here and educate yourself on what’s really happening.

If you disagree with Ms. Richardson’s perspective, I encourage you to share your reasons why. However, I do ask for civility and will take necessary steps to maintain it.
