    Let's call for true Democratic Elections in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and UAE.

    I remember that day. Gold went from about $44 for an ounce to nearly $1800 and Nixon forced us to drive 555mph after the Saudi Oil Embargo, and froze all wages and prices, so I got frozen at $1.15 per hour at my dish washing job. Then he went and attacked the Democrats in about six different ways. Then his vice president Agnew went to prison and his attorney general John Mitchell did so likewise. Then the rest of his staff joined the prisoner parade after Watergate.

    Sold to the highest bidder at the time for what $35 an ounce? I have to check on that.

    Well there IS gold in there. But you can not go and ask for gold in exchange for dollars. In the past you could.

    There are several lengthy treatises on the issue. Start with Wikipedia for some clarity.

    NEVER HAPPENED, he served NO time. pleaded Nolo Contendere

    Spiro Agnew - Wikipedia
    On October 10, 1973, Agnew appeared before the federal court in Baltimore, and pleaded nolo contendere (no contest) to one felony charge, tax evasion, for the year 1967. Richardson agreed that there would be no further prosecution of Agnew, and released a 40-page summary of the evidence. Agnew was fined $10,000 and placed on three years' unsupervised probation.

    The democratic party is already threatening to split in half, with a few insisting it might be really helpful, if we actually had our constitutional rights back.

    Sadly, the democratic party has everything to lose and nothing to gain, from actually promoting democracy, because almost all of their funding comes from Wall Street. Capitalism is the foundation of American democracy, that is to say, we espouse democracy whenever it pays better.

    sorry, my mistake. I remembered the early 70s and thought he did do time. He should have done time. He was a fraudster, blamed the liberal media for everything, and claimed the socialists were take over, just like Trump..

    A quarter of the population insists the sun revolves around the earth, fraud is a national pastime.

    I blame their teachers, who could not teach a child how to use a dictionary if their lives depended on it.

    Better yet; let's call for true democratic elections in the US.
    You'll never have truly representative democracy when one party can control one half of Congress despite representing 41.5 million fewer voters than the other half.

    Oh, yeah; and fuck the Electoral College!

    I agree. We need to fix America. As far as Saudi Arabia goes, I think US foreign policy is the main problem there. They are an absolute Theocracy. They use religion to control their people, oppress their Shia minority, and keep the immediate royal family very wealthy. I want to see change there and MBS in prison..

    Don't expect for the world's biggest arms dealer to risk offending one of their most lucrative customers, no matter how many women and children they behead.

    Bullshit. He who has the power to destroy a thing, controls that thing. This is the not-so-secret-secret of Donald Duck's success. Forty percent of the country is demanding a dictator, and telling the electoral college to go to hell.
