Joe McCarthy (Joseph Raymond McCarthy, November 14, 1908 – May 2, 1957) was a two-term Republican U.S. Senator from Wisconsin. He dominated the anti-communist movement in the U.S., 1950-54, until his career was ruined by censure by the Senate. "McCarthyism" is the aggressive exposure of Communists influences in America and the people who protect them, and liberals will add 'with scant regard for due process'.This is a disgusting dereliction of duty for a site that purports to be a source of reliable information.
McCarthyism was overly aggressive and ill-conceived from the beginning. It ruined lives, careers, and families. It was one man's witch hunt and a terrible failure on the part of the U.S. government and the American people.
I voted republican in the 2008 presidential election. I prefer tighter control on the U.S. budget and a general lightening of taxes. But if Conservapedia represents the mainstream views of Republicans - or if Republicans buy into that shit - then I can't imagine looking at a Republican candidate for a long time
