If you compare the thinking of JFK in his Inaugural Address where he is asking Americans to give service to America vs Bernie demanding American should give free education to everyone. What happened to Democrats, they are evolving into Socialist. They want to equality in restraint and servitude, but they want government to make them do it . JFK asked them to do it and they responded without force. As of lately the Democrats want government to get larger to provide everything for us and blaming rich people for our problems. Even if you took all the money away from rich people would it solve the problem? I doubt it. Poor people have a habit of wasting money, that's why they are poor.

"Ask what you can do for your country"

You seem to be leaving that part out. that doesn't go against anything said by today's democrate What you can do for your country is to help out those in need, support infrastructure improvement, education of the future generation, to help keep the economy strong. Not denigrate the poor. The majority of people that vote and support these policies are not the poor, or those that get or need help. They do not need help, nor likely will need it, but they want their fellow countrymen to not suffer, particularly in one of the richest countries in the world. That is what they can do for their country

WTF do republican politicians and people like you do for this country?

And if you want to quote JFK, how about this one.

“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
Still applies to today's democrats

They're appealing to criminals and gangbangers. I'm disappointed in their embrace of pedophiles, criminals. Especially with the criminal justice issue. There is a reason some suburbs are gated and they deserve to be that way. We don't want criminals and gangbangers in our streets next to our children and family.

With the socialism thing, this country was built on responsibility and working hard. Not asking for help or handouts Most progressives want to throw their trash on the taxpayer to pay for. Some rightists love big oil. That's why I'm a Independent.

Democrats are asking " What can the Government do for me?" They are not asking what they can do for this country. They want to take what others earn and take for themselves. Its called being a "Thief" , only they want to make it legal. They want to raise taxes and punish hard working Americans so they don't have to pay for their college educations. Its going to create a bunch of dead beat people. If no one pays for college, they will not take it serious, because they have nothing to lose. People have to be invested in their own education or they wont' take it seriously. I paid for my college and went from a 2.2 average in high school up to a 3.8 in college. Why? because I earned every dollar that paid for it and I didn't want to waste that. Your going to create a waste land with these kinds of policies.

God, the whininess here amazes me.

Do you think no democrats work...earn a living...take care of their families on their own?

Are all pubs crass jerks that make assinine blanket statements with no basis in reality?

See how that shit works, pal?

They have pretty much already evolved into "Socialists."

Now, they are taking on the mantle of Totalitarian views, much like their National Socialist and Bolshevik predecessors.
