The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

The Ages of FDR and Nixon

I would argue that the first half of the 20th century was the Age of Roosevelt. Part of five national tickets, he created generational change that no other Democratic President did. 

I also agree with Senator Robert Dole that the second half of the 20th century will be known as the  Age of Nixon. Part of five national tickets, he created generational change that no other Republican did.

FDR  created economic reform and relief that can be felt today. Nixon fundamentally changed the nation and world through detente, ending the draft and Vietnam War for the US , leading the push for Civil Rights for 25 years and dedicating us to fight cancer and focus on drug treatment. 

Both had other accomplishments that created generational change but that is for a future  essay.

Sadly, while FDR has been lifted to Sainthood, Nixon is slandered and demonized from all sides.

I aim to correct the record and reverse the false narrative we have been poisoned with by both media and academia for over 60 years.
