In case you didn’t know  
We keep rediscovering Richard Nixon. A while back, George Will noticed that Nixon conspired to undermine the Vietnam peace talks to improve his chances in the 1968 election, as us DFHs have been saying since it happened. Now we are being reminded again that John Erlichman admitted that the War on Some Drugs was designed to pick on the Blacks and the hippies. And of course he was a wishy-washy liberal compared to Trump & Cruz.

I'm just shocked!

I am reminded why I hated him so when he was in office.

He did a lot of damage. Trump and Cruz -- seriously, do we want to be a failed democracy?

Given the state of political debate and reporting - I think we *are* a failed democracy. Question is how catastrophic the failure will be.
(ETA: when an organ in the body isn't working to capacity and causing health issues, it's said to be "failure" - it doesn't mean that it's destroyed, merely that the body is in danger due to failure of a system that should be working.)
