The supporters of Rush Limbaugh write letters assaulting critics. Organizations like the Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute provide Rush with his statistics.
In 1933, a woman changed the history of the nation by pushing the arm of an assassin. The mayor of Chicago died in that attack, and four bystanders were wounded. Franklin D. Roosevelt survived and became a president who had the confidence of the American people. That liberal president served almost four terms. Shortly after that, 156 dynastic families supported the American Liberty League coup plot. The military would not go along.
During the not-so-great Depression, our most powerful citizens feared a revolution by workers and farmers. The elite decided to set up a fascist model state. These families and their right-wing organizations were prominent in the 1930s. They went underground during World War II. The "Bund," "America First," "Silver Shirts," "Sportsmen" and other organizations disappeared, and new organizations were formed with patriotic titles like the Heritage Foundation, Sound Economy, CATO, American Enterprise Institute, Hoover Institute and many others. The elite families used their trust foundations to form the think tanks that comprise the neoconservative social movement that penetrated both major political parties.
