Donald Trump Is The Pinnacle Of The Reagan Revolution, Not The End Of It

Fareed Zakaria is rewriting history to give conservatism a pass.

Cambridge Analytica Is Republican Ratf*cking With An Unlimited Budget

Back in the 1960’s the Republican Party went all in on “ratfucking”, the practice of winning elections by any means necessary. They tricked people into voting on the wrong day.
