I haven't figured out why you Libtards hate Richard Nixon. After all, he was the most Progressive Republican president we ever had. He help create the EPA and OSHA and wanted to nationalize our health care system. And he was just as nasty as Obama is too. You Libtards should have been in love with Nixon!
AP Enterprise: Nixon Wished for Total Handgun Ban
Few presidents in modern times have been as interested in gun control as Richard Nixon, of all people. He proposed ridding the market of Saturday night specials, contemplated banning handguns altogether and refused to pander to gun owners by feigning interest in their weapons.
Several previously unreported Oval Office recordings and White House memos from the Nixon years show a conservative president who at times appeared willing to take on the National Rifle Association, a powerful gun lobby then as now, even as his aides worried about the political ramifications.
"I don't know why any individual should have a right to have a revolver in his house," Nixon said in a taped conversation with aides. "The kids usually kill themselves with it and so forth." He asked why "can't we go after handguns, period?"
But that is not the answer to my question. Do you hate Richard Nixon and if so, why? Nixon was a great Progressive and just as nasty as Obama sooooo you shove have lived Nixon!
Then you liked Richard Nixon? Unlike Obama's promise to get out of Afghanistan, Nixon did get us out of Vietnam!<quoted text>
I don’t hate anyone Rogue. Wherever do you get such a notion?
