Imagine if any one of these things happened in our US history.
--If Jack Kennedy hadn't been assassinated
--If LBJ didn't lie us into Vietnam and that war
--If Bobby Kennedy hadn't been assassinated
--If Richard Nixon hadn't been elected to the presidency
--If George W. Bush weren't successful in stealing the 2000 election
--If George w. Bush didn't lie us into the Iraq War
The ramifications of each would be huge.
Now, imagine if all the above occurred.
