very accurate in content, they may not be word-perfect.
NIXON WAS A GI - GORE IS A HIPPIE
by Dr. R. L. Hymers, Jr.
There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless
their mother. There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is
not washed from their filthiness. There is a generation, O how lofty are their
eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. There is a generation, whose teeth are as
swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, To devour the poor from off the earth,
and the needy from among men." (Proverbs 30:11-14)
Richard M. Nixon lost to John F. Kennedy back in 1960 by a razor-thin
margin. Those marginal votes for Kennedy came only from the Chicago area,
controlled by Democrat boss-hog Richard Daley, and from Texas counties
controlled by Democrat wheeler-dealer Lyndon Johnson.
President Eisenhower was furious because he felt that Daley and Johnson had
stolen the election by "fooling" with the ballots in those two areas. He told Nixon there should be a recount. But Nixon bowed out
gracefully before election night was over. He said, "I did it for
the good of the country. A recount would have taken weeks and would have divided
Richard Nixon was a very tough politician, but he was a gentleman - from the GI generation - the generation that
went to war to save America. Nixon was right in the middle of it, in the Navy,
in the Pacific. He "did it for the good of the country."
Remember Watergate? Nixon said, "We could have gone to court, brought
in lawyers, fought it all the way. But it would have taken months. It would have
divided the country. So I resigned."
There’s that civic spirit again, the old GI perspective: leave as
gracefully as possible when you lose. Even if you might win by fighting on, don’t
divide the country. You can say what you want about Richard M. Nixon, but he was
a GI, fought in a mean war, and bowed out twice rather than engaging in self-centered legal wrangles to win "at any cost."
How refreshingly different from the two old Democrat Hippies who have run
the White House for the last eight years! The Hippie generation (Baby Boomers)
has been described by sociologists as "possessing unyielding opinions about
all issues." These old Hippies think they have a moral
understanding "more wondrous and extensive than anything ever sensed in the
history of mankind" (William Strauss and Neil Howe, Generations,
William Morrow, 1991, p. 11).
Look at Gore’s face. It's easy to imagine him with his hair down to his
belt, smoking a joint. As a matter of fact, that’s exactly the way he
looked thirty years ago! Sure, he went to Viet Nam - in a safe position. His
senator-father took care of that. But make no mistake, by his own admission, he
was a dope-smoking, long-haired Hippie.
His generation burned Chicago in 1968. His generation shredded the flag and
choked the streets of Washington. His generation called for
"revolution." And they got it - the Clinton/Gore revolution!
You see, old Hippies like Gore have never really changed inside.
They cut their hair and put on business suits, but their brains work the same as
they did in the sixties. They are right. Always! They will win. At any
cost! As Clinton put it, "Let’s just win" - no matter what it does
to the country. They never apologize, never give in, and they are (above all) never
ever wrong. Even the Los Angeles Times, no bastion of
conservatism, noticed this. They said, "Gore's aggressive, legal
strategy looks like a shameless search for votes." (L.A. Times,
11/19/2000, P. A25).
There really isn’t much hope for America until these old Hippies pass off
the scene, which will start happening in about ten years.
I hope America can last that long.
(AL GORE HAS NOW CONCEDED. IT WAS
ABOUT TIME! I DO NOT RETRACT MY EVALUATION OF HIM, GIVEN ABOVE).
