Campaign '68

Many see similarities between the 2016 presidential election campaign and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year. Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

It is ridiculous to expect the private job market to supply all the jobs that the people of this country need. In bad times, the large companies just throw away people -- some to live under bridges. There should be a profits tax that goes toward employing the very poor. That, coupled with a doubling of the public low income housing stock, would go a long way to reducing poverty.
