I put those two on there because we had Democrat leadership when
we weren't so perfect. Mayor Daley and LBJ were the leaders during those two events. It's happened when we have had leadership from either side.
Patriotism is a good thing, but we must not be blind to it. We must realize that we always have to strive to be better. Which presidential candidate will help us be a better nation? The false and overbearing patriotism of some leads to populist ideas and actions.
This timeline occurred during the watch of a Republican president and then a Democrat. We must be better. It didn't need to happen this way
