    My first Pres vote was for Carter in the 70's. First last and only time I voted Dem in a presidential election. Foolish youth.

    You and everyone else can’t be blamed; you had no idea Nixon was at the head of a massive criminal conspiracy, violated numerous laws and the Constitution, and nearly brought an end to the Republic.

    If you voted for Obama in the last election to prove you weren't a racist, vote Republican this time to prove you aren't an idiot.

    Nixon would be rejected by the GOP of today. He wanted universal health care, for one thing.

    I was one of the Silent Majority.

    Wasnt all that wild about Nixon.

    Probably would have voted for Robert Kennedy if he hadlived.
