There will be more on that in my Op about him.

Meanwhile, there is also this:

In 1964, he {Nixon} supported Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater for the Republican nomination for president; when Goldwater was successful in gaining the nomination, Nixon was selected to introduce the candidate to the convention.

I would bet my home that Goldwater voted for Nixon (or someone worse) every time that Nixon ran as Vice President or President.

As is so often said, especially in reference to politicians, "Talk is cheap, beer nuts cost money."

I am sorry for what politics is, too.

However, Enthusiast (about whom I am a little worried--he usually checks in every day--), gave me a lot of food for thought when he said that the New Deal may have been to stave off any threat of an uprising by Americans. That had never dawned on me. But it did jibe with other things I knew. Another day, I will try to find that thread and kick it.

Whatever, things have gone downhill.
