"But we have never lost sight of our goal: an America in which every citizen shares all the opportunities of his society, in which every man has a chance to advance his welfare to the limit of his capacities. We have come a long way toward this goal. We still have a long way to go. The distance which remains is the measure of the great unfinished work of our society. To finish that work I have called for a national war on poverty. Our objective: total victory."

>to achieve this goal we will lock the black underclass and future immigrants in a permanent ethnic patronage system, we will ship away our industrial base, and pursue a utopian "green" policy

How is this bad?

I mean, if you want to know how well the War on Poverty worked, the income gap between blacks and whites in America is now 4x what it was in the 1950s.

"green" and "policy" are Black Speech, my good hobbit.
"Green" means "government" (but for a good cause!) and "policy" means "force" (only if you deplorable trumpaloos resist).

It's weird how when you translate American presidents to German they resemble the people they claim they hate the most.

Green policies are more harmful to the enviroment. Cessation is the only answer, not converting from oil and gas to toxic lithium batteries and charging stations plugged into a failing grid that is 22% COAL and 38% NATURAL GAS.
Meanwhile we lobby Europe to shut off nuclear power plants. Green politics is a fucking scam, dude.

"Donald Trump" is Nancy Pelosi in German?

LBJ was a faggot and extremely delusional. Lacked Kennedy's charisma or Nixon's pragmatism.

Ssh. The lithium battery guys want to make some money.

LBJ is still the biggest sociopath to be president in the second half of the 20th century. Clinton would be 2.

Environmentalism is incompatible with improving the quality of life of the common man, because the environment can only be protected by lowering industrial output.

There are only two possible paths, one in which the environment is protected at that cost of creating a sort of neo-feudal world in which access to resources and opportunities is severely curtailed for most people, and another in which the environment is sacrificed to create boundless abundance that guarantees material comfort even to the lower classes.

sorry not today looneytoonarian

George Washington could have come back from the dead and run as a Republican and he would still lose that election because nobody wanted three presidents in a year.
>>
>>14529784
he also supported a war on the USS liberty lol
>>
>>14530145
He did such a bad job he couldn't even win renomination the next cycle
>>
>>14532037
to be fair LBJ was almost on death's door by 1968; his health and physical appearance were visibly deteriorating.
