I haven’t even clicked on the link yet, but the headline reads, “Confidence in U.S. Government Hits 35-Year Low.” So let’s do the math.
Mid-Seventies? Watergate, the fall of South Vietnam, inflation, wage and price controls, a newly-all volunteer military with a serious drug problem, the first oil shock, the Soviets mucking around all over Africa and Central America, and the swift rise of a unknown and incompetent Georgia governor to the White House.
Yep. Sounds about right.
