The Peace of God to all that belong to the LIght,
This week the Hack-Gate scandal investigation will reach and possibly overcome the total time Watergate lasted before to see emerging the Historic
decision of the resignation of the President of the United States to try to put end the crisis triggered with it.
This August 8th at evening we all what witnessed the facts of 44 years ago are going to remember the so tense situation for the country on that time
and all the considerations that were carefully weighted by President Richard Nixon when he took such a transcendental decision of to resign the office
he was elected on 1972 saving to the nation the bad consequences of a very negative impeachment process.
No doubt Nixon fine talent for the negotiation allowed him to conceive a really smart political move to prevent a catastrophic end of his long
political life by carefully choosing conditions to step down that at the same time satisfied his contradictors and preserved the most that it was
possible his important legacy to the future.
Richard Nixon Resignation speech adressing the Nation.
Under a certain Impeachment and removal from office this man knew what was his only possible way to depart with dignity and also maintain an aura of
respect even among his enemies, after all He was in different aspects a genius that was able to establish crucial steps to create a new era of
stability to the Nation and the world, succeeding in areas where others before him dramatically failed:
- Stabilizing the Nation internally across an era of huge social turmoil created by the combat against organized crime, reactions of the civil rights
and antiwar Agendas, preventing to reach the point of civil war or institutional collapse.
- Maintaining the leadership of America in the Space Race but also offering cooperation with rivals opened the path toward a global communications and
cyber-information business era and the international exploration of the cosmos that today exist.
- Enhancing the federal support to States, local governments and Investigation agencies to combat the organized crime in all forms.
- The creation of the National Environmental Protection Agency, an effort to balance economic growing and need to preserve natural resources.
- His support to Clean Air act is responsible that today we have work spaces free of smocking dangerous pollution.
- Equating the public funding for promoting participation of women in sports competitions.
- Education Reform creating a National Institute for Education to lead the improvement of the public education system in order to break the monopoly
of the private education establishment.

A Note on Richard Nixon legacy
Today we are facing a situation in America that in many aspects resemble Watergate, dealing with the uncertainty of how the current administration may
progress in the middle of a political crisis that look to have no end, at least in near future.
There are so many parallelisms with what happened in 1970s, including accusations of a supposedly collusion between who was in power and external
influences to win the election of 1968. Richard Nixon was in several occasions accused to have boycotted all possible attempts of the Lyndon Johnson
administration to negotiate a cease of fire with North Vietnam and advance in talks to try to explore a peaceful resolution of such a conflict.

If Richard Nixon would be still alive it is not difficult to guess what could be his advising to the two parts that are confronted right now in this
huge predicament of the Hack-Gate Scandal:
By sure he would suggest to both to negotiate the terms of a mutually beneficial end of the crisis before its momentum may damage all what has been
done by both sides along many years to construct the future for all, since he was leader able to balance the difficulty to take painful but necessary
decisions looking for the best interest of the nation and the world.
His great lesson to his opponents and successors was precisely to make them learn that by ceding intelligently immediate assets it is possible to gain
much more in the long run.
The Nation still keep in its collective the memory of Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter crying bitterly their defeat in their failed corresponding tries
for reelection but we don't have any remembrance of to have seen a Nixon in the same so embarrassing situation, although he faced by far a much worst
ending of office. The true is that He had enough grounded mind, serenity, calm and intelligence to take the initiative to decide the terms on which
it was going to be modeled his post Presidency era.
The Thread is open to the discussion of how important is right now to try to preserve channels of effective communication in between the parts in the
resolution of the so complex issue created by the irregularities occurred in the 2016 election maintaining a sense of dignity and respect for all and
saving the reputation of the political institutions.
