tv Ross Perot Petition Rally CSPAN May 6, 2016 10:54pm-11:08pm EDT
america has strangers but that's part of the greatness of our country. i have great faith in american youth. the youth of today can change the world and they understand that. i think that we're going to go forward to a great age, not just for americans, but for peace and progress for all the people in the world. in a party itself can unite the nation. how can a party that can't keep order in its own backyard hope
to keep order in our a states? how can a party that labelled the results of its program in a great society ever find any real solutions. how can a party that lets a party get bogged down in an endless war on fourth party power get into conflict. how in the light of all this account american people fail it see that united states urgently needs new leadership. by now it's clear. the american people do see the ne need. >> what has richard nixon ever done for you? >> what has richard nixon ever done for me? medicare.
no, but nixon, nixon. the nuclear bomb. no, that was humphrey's idea to test the bomb. but nixon? what has richard mixon ever done for me? oh, let's see. working people. i'm a worker. no. the democrats got social security. but nixon. education. >> the preceding has been a paid announcement for citizens for humphrey muske. >> there must be something nixon's done. >> do you want castro to have the bomb? now? do you want any country that doesn't have the bomb to be able
to get it? of course you don't. where does richard nixon stand on the u.n. treaty to stop the spread of nuclear weapons? he says he's in no hurry to pass it. hubert humphrey wants to stop the spread of nuclear weapons now. before it mushrooms. hubert humphrey supports the u.n. treaty now. as do the 80 countries who have already signed it. let's stop the spread of the bomb now. humphrey. and there's no alternative. paid for my citizens for humphrey muske.
mr. mixon silence on the issue of vietnam has become an issue in itself. he talks of an honorable peace. but says nothing about how he would attain it. he says the war must be waged more effectively. but says nothing about how he would wage it. even the man who second is the nomination of rhard nixon, mark hat field has said, the peace talk should not become the skirt for timid men to hide behind. made promises for quote an honorable peace unquote. voters should not be forced to go to the polls with their fingers crossed.
