Subject: Letter to te Editor - Nixon Pardon Revisited
Date: Wed, 27 Dec 2006 14:38:19 -0800
From: Marc Perkel
On the day of President Ford's death people in the news are praising his
decision to pardon Nixon saying that Ford "Healed the nations would and
brought Americans together after Watergate". I am not one of those who
share that opinion. Nixon broke the law. He abused his power as
president for his own personal gain. By pardoning Nixon he cheated
America out of justice and a change to show the world the even the
president isn't above the law. Instead America is left with a legacy the
high ranking officials who break the law will be pardoned "for the good
of the nation".
I wonder if we would be Iraq today and our current elected officials
would flaunt the law the way they are today if Nixon had faced justice.
We will never know if Ford was chosen because he made a promise to
pardon Nixon if he was given the job. I believe that it was wrong for an
unelected president to pardon the person who appointed him. Elected
officials who break the law should face justice and I hope that we don't
see justice cheated again by presidential pardons.
