    The sad thing is that if JFK were running today, he'd be labelled an extremist, or a tin foil kook for mistrusting the banking cartel that owns this country.

    I heard that on Rush's show today. Doesn't sound at all like the Democrats of today.

    He would also be demonized for his wealth.

    This is a perfect example of how people like Limbaugh manipulate things. Do you realize the top tax rate back then was NINETY-ONE PERCENT?! Kennedy wanted to reduce it to 65% (it ended up being reduced to 70%).

    I didn't read what Rush had to say. Instead, I listened to JFK's speech. His speech would not be well received by democrats today.

    That's because the democrats are now socialists and the republicans are democrats.

    As much as it pains me to say it, we (in the USA) are all Americans. It's just some Americans have a very different view of where America should be heading.
