Richard Milhous Nixon bol americký politik. V rokoch 1969 až 1974 bol 37. prezident Spojených štátov.

Za prezidenta bol zvolený 5. novembra 1968. Porazil pri tom s veľkým odstupom demokrata Huberta Humryho, aj vďaka tomu že sľuboval stiahnutie amerických vojsk z Vietnamu. Jeho veľkým odporcom bol práve kvôli vojne vo Vietname britský hudobník John Lennon. Vyštudoval Whittier College v roku 1934 a Duke University of Law v roku 1937 kedy sa vrátil do Kalifornie praktizovať právo. On a jeho manželka Pat Nixonová sa presťahovali do Washington D.C. za prácou vo federálnej vláde v roku 1942. Potom počas druhej svetovej vojny slúžil v US Navy. V roku 1946 bol v Kalifornii zvolený do snemovne poslancov a v roku 1950 do senátu. Jeho úsilie v prípade Algera Hissa mu prinieslo reputáciu anti-komunistu a povýšilo ho to k národným prominentom. Bol spolukandidátom Dwight D. Eisenhowera v Republikánskej strane v prezidentských voľbách v roku 1952. Osem rokov slúžil ako viceprezident. Viedol neúspešnú prezidentskú kampaň v roku 1960. Prehral tesne oproti svojmu protivníkovi Johnovi F. Kennedymu. V roku 1962 stratil post Guvernéra Kalifornie. V roku 1968 opäť kandidoval a bol zvolený. Hoci spočiatku stupňoval Americkú účasť vo Vietnamskej vojne potom ukončil zásah v roku 1973. Nixonova návšteva Čínskej ľudovej republiky v roku 1972 otvorila diplomatické vzťahy medzi oboma krajinami. Zaslúžil sa aj o zmiernenie napätia medzi Sovietskym zväzom a USA. V domácej politike všeobecne zaviedol politiku, ktorá preniesla moc z Washingtonu D.C. do ostatných štátov. Odštartoval iniciatívu boja proti rakovine a ilegálnym drogám, zrušil rasovú segregáciu v južanských školách, zrealizoval environmentálnu reformu a uviedol legislatívu reformy zdravotnej starostlivosti a sociálnej prosperity. Jeho politickú činnosť ukončila aféra Watergate, pri ktorej vyšlo najavo, že vedome kryl a popieral odpočúvanie novinárov.

Citáty Richard Nixon

„In a civilized nation no man can excuse his crime against the person or property of another by claiming that he, too, has been a victim of injustice. To tolerate that is to invite anarchy“

— Richard Nixon
Context: There can be no right to revolt in this society; no right to demonstrate outside the law, and, in Lincoln's words, 'no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law'. In a civilized nation no man can excuse his crime against the person or property of another by claiming that he, too, has been a victim of injustice. To tolerate that is to invite anarchy.

„I should say this — that Pat doesn't have a mink coat. But she does have a respectable Republican cloth coat. And I always tell her that she'd look good in anything.“

— Richard Nixon
Context: p>That's what we have and that's what we owe. It isn't very much but Pat and I have the satisfaction that every dime that we've got is honestly ours. I should say this — that Pat doesn't have a mink coat. But she does have a respectable Republican cloth coat. And I always tell her that she'd look good in anything.One other thing I probably should tell you because if we don't they'll probably be saying this about me too, we did get something — a gift — after the election. A man down in Texas heard Pat on the radio mention the fact that our two youngsters would like to have a dog. And, believe it or not, the day before we left on this campaign trip we got a message from Union Station in Baltimore saying they had a package for us. We went down to get it. You know what it was. It was a little cocker spaniel dog in a crate that he'd sent all the way from Texas. Black and white spotted. And our little girl — Tricia, the 6-year old — named it Checkers. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it.</p

„The important thing in our process, however, is to play the game,“

— Richard Nixon
Context: The important thing in our process, however, is to play the game, and in the great game of life, and particularly the game of politics, what is important is that on either side more Americans voted this year than ever before, and the fact that you won or you lost must not keep you from keeping in the great game of politics in the years ahead, because the better competition we have between the two parties, between the two men running for office, whatever office that may be, means that we get the better people and the better programs for our country.

„The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker.“

— Richard Nixon
Context: What kind of nation we will be, what kind of world we will live in, whether we shape the future in the image of our hopes, is ours to determine by our actions and our choices. The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. This honor now beckons America — the chance to help lead the world at last out of the valley of turmoil, and onto that high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization. If we succeed, generations to come will say of us now living that we mastered our moment, that we helped make the world safe for mankind. This is our summons to greatness. "The greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker" was later used as Nixon's epitaph.

„On Christmas Eve, during my terrible personal ordeal of the renewed bombing of North Vietnam, which after 12 years of war finally helped to bring America peace with honor, I sat down just before midnight. I wrote out some of my goals for my second term as President.
Let me read them to you:“

— Richard Nixon
To make it possible for our children, and for our children's children, to live in a world of peace. To make this country be more than ever a land of opportunity — of equal opportunity, full opportunity for every American. To provide jobs for all who can work, and generous help for those who cannot work. To establish a climate of decency and civility, in which each person respects the feelings and the dignity and the God-given rights of his neighbor. To make this a land in which each person can dare to dream, can live his dreams — not in fear, but in hope — proud of his community, proud of his country, proud of what America has meant to himself and to the world.

„Well, then, some of you will say, and rightly, "Well, what did you use the fund for, Senator? Why did you have to have it?" Let me tell you in just a word how a Senate office operates. First of all, a Senator gets $15,000 a year in salary. He gets enough money to pay for one trip a year, a round trip, that is, for himself, and his family between his home and Washington, DC. And then he gets an allowance to handle the people that work in his office to handle his mail. And the allowance for my State of California, is enough to hire 13 people. And let me say, incidentally, that that allowance is not paid to the Senator. It is paid directly to the individuals that the Senator puts on his payroll. But all of these people and all of these allowances are for strictly official business; business, for example, when a constituent writes in and wants you to go down to the Veteran's Administration and get some information about his GI policy — items of that type, for example. But there are other expenses that are not covered by the Government. And I think I can best discuss those expenses by asking you some questions.Do you think that when I or any other senator makes a political speech, has it printed, should charge the printing of that speech and the mailing of that speech to the taxpayers? Do you think, for example, when I or any other Senator makes a trip to his home State to make a purely political speech that the cost of that trip should be charged to the taxpayers? Do you think when a Senator makes political broadcasts or political television broadcasts, radio or television, that the expense of those broadcasts should be charged to the taxpayers? Well I know what your answer is. It's the same answer that audiences give me whenever I discuss this particular problem: The answer is no. The taxpayers shouldn't be required to finance items which are not official business but which are primarily political business.“

„I am now a Keynesian in economics.“

— Richard Nixon
Just after a broadcast interview with four newsmen (6 January 1971), according to Howard K. Smith, one of the interviewers. [http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=awpdAAAAIBAJ&pg=916,487551 "Nixon Has Shifted to Ideas of Keyness: ABC Commentator"]
