Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

A Presidential Medal of Freedom for President Nixon- now more than ever.

I have no problem with President Obama awarding the Medal of Freedom to his Vice President but awarding one to President Nixon would be more valuable to history and justice. Former Senator Robert Dole once said, ” I believe the second half of the 20th century will be known as the age of Nixon.”  This makes sense if one looks at the record.

President Nixon (and Vice President Nixon for that matter) implemented generational change that has rarely been seen before or since.

I can think of scores of reasons that the award should be made but when looking at the totality of the record and continuing influence- it must be made.
