    Since we both remember JFK! Know the pride we felt in our Government, then seeing Walter Cronkite take off his glasses with tears in his eyes announce," The President is dead!"

    And to watch the days of mourning for him. We were proud of our Government back then.

    These fools have no idea of how far we have fallen.

    How sad what has befallen our great nation because of liberalism.

    Bullshit. You have no idea what you're talking about.

    Just another pathetic troll....

    The entire 1960 Democratic Party Platform:
    Democratic Party Platforms: 1960 Democratic Party Platform
    LBJ managed to get Medicare through as a more or less tribute to JFK

    I am beginning to understand why some support Trump. They do not have the faintest idea of History. But they try to pretend they do.

    Is it fair to point out that back then, even the Republicans were further left than today's Democrats? If you remove the egomaniac and the crook from Nixon and ran him for President today he'd be further left than Hillary by a mile.

    Where do you get that from? Republicans have never been left in my lifetime. That is why I could never vote Republican.

    Maybe IKE, but I did not vote back then. Both parties wanted him to run. Winning a war does that.

    He created the EPA and Department of Natural Resources. He ended the draft. He supported the ERA. He supported national health insurance (he lost). In general, American politics have moved sharply right since 1980. If you just extracted his positions on the issues and handed them to a candidate today, they might even be too far left for the DNC.

    Romney made 20 million and paid 13% in taxes. Under JFK he would have paid about 75% in taxes. The GOP wants to lower them further and you make this asinine thread? I think you have it backwards.
