101. Read my reply number 99.

The lesson to be learned from 1968 is not that Nixon won the election.Rather, it is that the actions and ideals taken to heart by the street demonstrators ended up becoming embedded in the hearts and minds of average Americans.

In short, the side that has more fun wins.

Richard Nixon really and truly did not win. He ended up being ousted, in part because of the growth of the entire consciousness of the nation. The real result of the demonstrations of 1968 happen to be how we ousted Nixon, and had Jimmy Carter in the Presidency, with the years of the Carter Presidency representing an era that was more truly American than any other time the nation has existed.

During the Carter Presidency, We weren't fighting any bogus wars under Carter, we were starting to move towards solar energy, in one huge and massive boom! and we were becoming an integrated society. In fact the gains society was making under Carter made it imperative that Kissinger (now one of Obama's trusted advisers!) manipulate how the UAE nations withheld the oil, and then came the hostage taking in Iran. All those carefully manipulated events caused Carter to lose the 1980 election.
