Myth No. 6 - Donald Trump, his cabinet and all Republicans are fascists.
The Truth - A favorite leftist smear—employed for decades now—is the claim that everyone on the right is a “fascist.” So the question must be asked: What is fascism? Where does the term come from?

Myth No. 5 - Federal law always supersedes State law.
The Truth - On the subject of Supremacy, Brion McClanahan noted in a 2010 article, “this opinion is held by a majority of constitutional law “scholars,” but they are far from correct.”
