I will never understand how their followers can be so dense to embrace these ideas. Newt claims to be a historian, so he knows exactly what happened at that time. He chooses to embrace the fact that we would be better off without these laws. So much for learning from the past. I have a feeling this time, when we repeat it, we still won't learn from it.
If conservatives should take control of this country (Presidency, House and Senate), I think we'd see real repression and regression. And true Americans will not stand for it.
