Quote of the day–John F. Kennedy

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

John F. Kennedy
[This doctrine should be universally applied to all infringements of liberty here and abroad. If the president were doing his job he would start arresting the anti-gun and anti-liberty politicians in Washington D.C. then Chicago, New Jersey, California, etc. After the U.S. is cleaned up Canada and Mexico should be encouraged to get in line.

I’m posting this for January 27th on January 26th, a day early because I need it for another post. I thought I had already posted it years ago but I can’t find it now.–Joe]

  1. Sure enough; if JFK were running for office today, the Democrats would dismiss him as an extremist or a “teabagger” (probably putting him on a terrorist watch list for that quote alone) and the Republicans would dismiss him as not being “moderate” enough, or as being imprudent in his choice of words, such that the “Big Tent” doctrine would have been violated.

    Of course he was really only speaking to the Soviet Bloc, methinks, “liberty”, as all words in Leftspeak, being an extremely flexible term, and the Cold War being formost in the political thought of the day. Domestically he was no small ell libertarian.

    Still, the words in and of themselves are great, and it’s always good to look back at the language of yesteryear and see how much the rhetoric at least has changed.

    Oh; that’s “abroad” not “aboard”. Btu ew lal aft fingre a wodr onw adn hten.

  2. JFK also said every American family should have an M16. But the drunken Teddy did everything he could to prevent it.
