36. This discussion is simply amazing to me
You could have taken every point on policy and plopped it right into the middle of Nixon's re-election campaign speech and not changed a syllable.

Left wing?

This country has gone sooooooooooo far to the right that a Nixonian campaign speech sounds leftist?


Health care. YES, Nixon campaigned on universal health care.

Environment? YES. He signed the Clean Air and Water Acts which are the basis for what Smirk is trying to destroy.

Vietraq or IraqNam. YES. He campaigned on getting us the fuck out (of course he fibbed and escalated)
