No one has a right to have nuclear weapons, IMO.

After WWII that country would have been the USSR with Stalin in charge. China soon followed. Would Stalin or Mao used their A bombs to achieve their political aims if the U.S. did not have nukes, you can be the judge.
The thing is when it comes to war, country after country continue to develop bigger and better weapons, without Nukes, it would be something else. Better and deadlier chemical and biological weapons, perhaps even smart disease bugs. Something else would have been developed to replace the nukes. That much is sure.

This Reform Party member is extremely happy to see according to Gallup that independents now make up 44% of the electorate as of 8 Jan 2017. The two major parties continue to shrink as one moves farther right, the other left. They leave more and more of middle America without a political home. They made up over 80% in the 1950's, down to 53% today.
