He supported Nixon, Ike, Goldwater, Brock in his run against Gore Sr, and howard Baker in his run against Hooker.

And the ignoramus ignores the fact that Nixon’s 1968 Southern Strategy was designed to attract those whites that hated MLK and the Civil Rights Movement. That is when the South turned from blue to red virtually overnight.

The truth will set you free is not what is exhibited in our culture today. Lying has been the new normal of behavior in our society for a long time now and people of integrity are considered outcasts.
