But you also have a entry level wage for teenagers do you not. IIRC, this is about 10-12$/hr.

Additionally, you also have some of the strictest immigration policies in the world. You can afford 17/hr when you don't have to worry about millions of people coming over your southern border who don't have much of an education and skills. (along with the government on your southern border is encouraging them to migrate so they don't have to take care of them).

Don't forget that Hillary was fired by the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate.

“Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” - Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee

Let's see, you take a DEMOCRAT Vice Pres from 30 years before the formation of the republican party and 100+ years before the modern conservative movement came into play and use him as a example of conservatives.

You're not interested in the facts, just making sure the ends justify your means.

Really? Look at what the modern liberals/Democrats are into:
-Hope and Change
-the federal govenment controlling healthcare, student loans, school lunches, the EPA's actions, etc;
-Bank bailouts and subsidizes to big dem donars, blocking Keystone as a favor to Warren Buffet (who's rail shipping would be impacted).

Seems like the left have a headstart over the right on Fascism.

(Also, Facism existed in the US under Woodrew Wilson before it was it too hold in Italy...do the research yourself).
