    From what I have been told, the building of them are built with private donations but the upkeep is paid for by the Federal Government. I would not mind that if the libraries just stuck to the facts. But they don't. They are used a propaganda machines and flat out lie. They send bus loads of children every year to them. I just think that is wrong. I don't think that these libraries should be used for propaganda. They should just stick with the facts.

    And the Nixon Library is just as bad.

    It's called revisionism

    Trying to erase history .... but ultimately it doesn't work
    Nixon will forever be a two bit crook
    and George W Bush will be forever a War Criminal who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands both here in America and in Iraq

    and Free
    I once again have to tell you you need to stop posting those videos
    First ..... the timing is specifically misleading
    Remember ? Clinton did stop Saddam obtaining WMD's Remember ?
    and THEN where did the Cherry picked intelligence come from before Shock and Awe?
    Where? Hmmmmmmmm ......

    Presidential libraries tend to be organized on the 'victor's justice' principle: "I won. It's my library and I can put whatever the hell I want in it."

    Those with an enquiring mind will look beyond the propaganda. The rest will probably vote Republican.
