III. The Election of 2016

The election of 2016 was a major miscarriage of justice and fairness inflicted on the American electorate by the hopelessly flawed concept and existence of the Electoral College. What you just heard is not necessarily the most objective statement ever made, but it is uttered equally from both the head and heart. The election of 2016 was the most stomach-churning, mind-warping, soul-wrenching presidential election in the memory of millions of Americans. Ditto re. the objectivity of that statement.

II. The Elections of 1960 and 2000

F.W. deKlerk, Nikita Khrushchev, and Mikhail Gorbachev: The Twentieth Century’s Greatest Winner-Losers

History can be cruel. Sometimes it elevates charlatans, and it denounces people of great political courage and character. Inferior individuals win prestigious posts in government, while people of superior abilities who have complex and often inscrutable motives are thrown onto the ash heap of history. Three such men were the last white President of South Africa, one of the last communist party chairmen and premiers of the USSR, and the last leader of the Soviet Union prior to its collapse in 1991.
