Joe McCarthy and patriotism
I have always felt that Joe McCarthy was a unpatriotic American. In the election to become Senator, he beat Wisconsin reformer Robert LaFollette, an aggressive U.S. Senator who went after systematic corruption and wanted corporate accountability. Even if Communists were in the government, who cares! Everyone has the right to express their beliefs in this country. Its supported by the 1st Amendment...
