I have a few things to ask, im putting together an essay for a very conservative teacher.. but I want it to come from a radical point of view.

The questions are from A peoples History of the United States by Howard Zinn:

  1. How did Bush I respond to the post-Cold War threat to military spending?
  2. Where and why did the Reagan and Bush administrations support or carry out
    terrorist acts?
  3. Why did American business support the election of a liberal Democrat (Carter)
    in 1976?
  4. How was Carters Democrat administration similar to Nixons Republican
  5. Who benefited from Regans Tax cut and who suffered from it?
