7. Fair Enough
But, i'm old enough to remember those days with clarity. The GOP of the 60's and 70's was nowhere close the GOP of today. There is essentially no comparison.

These people have done damage to the MIDDLE class this time. They may have been anti-welfare snakes, but they were pitting rich and middle class folks against the Great Society poor. The current GOP has become corporatists who are benefitting the rich at the expense of the middle class, and that's from whence the backlash will come.

I do agree that "decades" is unrealistic, but i don't think the Watergate timeline is a fair comparison either.
