Re: What's Up With This??!?
I don't think the "modern" democrats revile Nixon so much anymore...he
would no longer fit inside the Republican tent as he was basically what
we now call a "RINO"....pro-Abortion, big government, etc. but he did
see that fighting endless wars overseas was wrong, and he did believe
in fair trade to get our American products rolling. Nixon is the type of
guy that should be on the progressive ticket to balance any excesses
on the true conservative side.
And the Americans of 1968 and 1972 evidently saw it that way , too...
didn't "tricky dick" win just about every state in the union in 1972 against
McGovern, who would be the liberal dream candidate today...wishy
washy guy that would give free money to everyone.
