You are forgetting that we had nukes, and the Russians still had a few years before they could put together what their spies had brought them. Still, I do not disagree with FederalFarmer. "What ifs", indeed.

This is why the Founders created a government with built in limitations- and we have allowed, in our ignorance and sloth, those with an interest in power to erode those limitations.
