WHO SAID IT? How Well Do You Know Your Collectivists? The Answers May Surprise You…

We’re one month away from electing our next President of the United States of America. On November 8th, voters will have to decide what kind of a future we want for our nation. Do we want to continue as a free society, or are we willing to give up our freedoms and allow Collectivist leaders who know better than we, how to best run our personal and professional lives? We thought this was the perfect time to test the knowledge of the American voter. So we’re asking, “How well do you know your Collectivist leaders?”
