The polls...indicate that Nixon will get a comfortable majority of the youth vote. And that he might carry all fifty states....This may be the year when we finally come face to face with ourselves -- that we really are just a nation of...used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms at all about killing anyone else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
written on the eve of the 1972 election
-Hunter S. Thompson, from Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail, reprinted in The Great Shark Hunt
