John F. Kennedy: Democrat Neo-Conservative

Not much that Kennedy offered in one of his great speeches would have pleased liberals if Kennedy’d had an (R) behind his name. Have a look.

The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are. The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission. Writer’s Note: I had to put this one first. Kennedy’s party has become the party of the Surrender Monkey.

–And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

–Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.
–Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.

–Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

–In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility – I welcome it.

Israel was not created in order to disappear – Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.

It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war.

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.

Sometimes I think that Kennedy only sported the Democrat moniker so he could get angry feminists into bed.

    JFK would make 80% of modern Republicans look like Pinko-Commies on most issues.

    He was what I like to call a democratic version of a libertarian. I am pretty sure he at least tried to end the fed. He had a libertarian foreign policy(peace and diplomacy before war). He was more republican economically than George Bush in my opinion. He cut taxes but did spend. He is basically to sum it up a Ron Paul who occasionally gets government involved. He sounded like he likes free markets and less regulation. I think he tried to get a healthcare mandate but not sure. He was not at all a neo-con. Those speeches were exactly that-speeches. Many people believe he was killed because of his diplomacy.
