There are quite a few videos of Gore Vidal interviews on this channel, and they are all worth watching. His keen observations of how American really works combined with his knowledge of history makes for interesting viewing and discussion. I suspect, if you are a Republican, you won't like the videos very much.
I chose these three videos just to whet your appetite, and make you just a wee bit angry. If you're like me you get angry and think about what made you angry and why. If you're smart, you'll fact check and at least give being objective a shot.
