Response to butdiduvote (Original post)

30. I survived Nixon

and I remember feeling much the same when he got in because I knew he had learned his political philosophy at McCarthy's knee and I knew he had deep seated personality issues that would make him a terrible president. I was right. I was working then so I was able to do some extremely minor monkey wrenching. I'm retired now, so I'll be limited to contributions to organizations that promise to be major irritants to Trump and Bannon, but that I'll do.

We are still suffering from Nixon's paranoia in the form of the War on Drugs, something that fucking asshole started to get the antiwar and civil rights leaders thrown into prison. It has developed a life of its own and no one links it to one man's evil any more.

I know this gang of thieves and Kremlin tools will do something equally evil to the people of this country.

And yeah, I'm sick about it, we've been down this road before. However, the only good thing is that it took YEARS before we got this much pushback against Nixon. I hope it keeps growing and spreading.

Maybe this time there will be the will to put the worst of the traitors on trial. Maybe the snake's head will get cut off once and for all, at least until the next gang of xemophobic idiots comes along.
