How Richard Nixon's Legacy Has Corrupted The Party Of Lincoln.

Richard Nixon was a clever politician.  He realized that Lyndon Johnson's embrace of the civil rights movement would turn many against the Democratic Party.  His "Southern Strategy" was successful; it turned the Dixiecrat's in the South into Republicans.  This article explains how Nixon's strategy has placed a heavy burden on the GOP.  It has become the anti-modernity party.  It is defined by what it opposes.  It is devoid of new ideas that are consistent with a challenging future that will demand new ideas.  It selects politicians to run for government offices whose mission is to weaken the ability of government to function.
