Starred & Flagged...
First Nixon stacked the deck to get the results he wanted:
I love the analogy! It tells me that you are well acquainted with and understand Nixon's habitual gambling problem. The $trillion dollars might have
been spent on further lunar exploration missions but Nixon cancelled the Apollo program at nearly the exact same time he declared his War on Drugs.
The $trillion dollars might have been spent in any number of beneficial ways - at home or abroad.
Nixon, through his own books and his biographers, too, they all link & mention that he is/was brought up in a Quaker regime, a man of peace who
abhorred violence. Then he turns around and joined the Navy, asked for a forward assignment, got one, spent the time playing poker on Green Island and
made off with a pretty nice wad after the war that helped pay for his first congressional run in 1946.
(Fun Fact: Nixon's promotion rate in the Navy during the war was faster than both JFk and GHWB.)
But, back to the War on Drugs.... this was Nixon's way of imposing his childhood Quaker regime on America. And here is the important tidbit that
hasn't been mentioned in this thread.... Nixon was very close to the Reverend Billy Graham. Do your research on this.
courtesy thumb for larger version:
That $trillion dollars of the Drug War was spent on creating a reason for the police state to exist. Very clever, that Dick Nixon.
