Some Presidents Were Great Radicals...

Today is Presidents' Day - the day we honor two of our greatest commanders-in-chief: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. To many Americans - Washington and Lincoln are now more mythic heroes than real historical figures.

In other words - they have to call on their local payday loan shark when they need to cash a paycheck or get a little credit. And that’s a big - big problem.

Where is Donald Trump's Worldview Leading Us?
