    many of the personalities we've had in politics from about the 1970s to the present.  Many of them wouldn't hesitate for one instant to hack into computers and steal a major election.  Since Reagan, this country has mostly accepted a "win at any cost" attitude in everything from beauty pageants to sports to politics to academics.  This "just win baby" attitude is even openly admired now.

    Since the Reagan presidency, our ethics have slowly but surely eroded.  Since the Nixon presidency, very little that has happened in U.S. politics has surprised me.
