States' rights became code for holding off desegregation. Segregation and desegregation somewhat briefly fed the passionate of all persuasions. With time, the desegregation passions faltered before the murderous passions of their opponents. Leaders were struck down: the Kennedy brothers and Martin Luther King prominently assassinated.
Others less well known, yet effectively removed through character assassination, financial ruin or denied opportunities, fell victim just as surely. Johnson's domestic legislative initiatives fell victim. The War on Poverty was shoved aside by a real war in Vietnam.
Nixon gutted the economic opportunity commissions. With Kissinger's urging and realpolitik rampant, the Vietnam War was prolonged for more years to end up about the same: ignominious defeat followed by another 40 years of sanctions and blockade attempting to destabilize postwar Vietnam.

However, a key strategy which was to guide succeeding Republican administrations took hold. The excesses of the Vietnam War drained the American treasury until the strings holding it together parted in America was technically bankrupt. International financial systems fell. The dollar was unpegged and gold set afloat. No funds could be diverted to social welfare, poverty relief, job training for jobs which didn't exist, affirmative action or equal rights for women.

Ford succeeded a disgraced Nixon to be succeeded by Jimmy Carter. Carter's time was marred fatally by not only the Iranian hostage crisis but also by high interest rates freezing investment, closing down housing markets, stifling white goods and auto installment sales, postponing job creation and fostering inflation as what money there was chased after low inventories.
The Watcher & Other Tales Of Passions Unleashed
With attention diverted, the segregationists dragged and dragged and dragged steel shod boots to keep school doors closed, jobs lily-white, neighborhoods barred, women barefoot and pregnant, ghettoes secured. Reagan arrived with military budgets to drive deficits deeper, eyes closed to discriminations, union-busting as goal and deification as reward. Bush took over to keep the lids in place, engineered a war or two to distract attention and use the tools of black government to weigh upon the world. Called "wimp" for being soft on taxes, the passionate Republicans pulled away from him in Clinton, a paradox of a man, yet intent on bringing a degree of balance back to governance, slogged through honing federal spending primarily at the expense of social programs and taking advantage of prosperity in the dot.
Clinton outraged the passionate among Republicans sufficiently to energize them to take power at any cost in With George W. Bush anointed president, the neo-conservatives rolled out their long shelved programs. Find a war to absorb all loose dollars, slash taxes, crash environmental safeguards, clamp down social programs, inflame the sore spots of the world and give Ariel Sharon a blank check in Israel.
Karl Rove, strategist par excellence, having taken power at any cost, worked passionately to keep power at any cost. He dove for the bowels to find and claim the darkest of passions. He wrapped his man, George W. Bush, in them. He paid no attention to the middle-of-the-road perhaps undecided concerns. As far as Rove is concerned, ain't no such thing as a moderate Republican. He drove the passions of evangelical Christians united in hatred of women, homosexuals and secular orientations.
He snarled and snapped and lunged at liberals.
