John Kennedy was a "LIBERAL" only when viewed in the classical definition of the word. Today, those that are called "LIBERTARIANS" or "TEA PARTIERS" are the closest to meeting the classical definition of liberal ... which comes down from the concept of the "LIBERTINES" of the 18th century.

Classical liberalism believed in minimal state intervention in private lives, minimal regulation, and minimal taxation ... all three concepts are considered toxic contagion by what today is called liberalism.

Modern liberalism took the name after they had been called progressives ... which is now making a comeback ... which they took after they had been called socialists which they took after they had been called communists which they took after they had been called Marxists.

JFK, if he were alive today, would be denounced by the American left ... and by hondo ... as a wild eyed madman.

He was more conservative than either Palin or McCain or either of the Bush presidents. His political ideology, when compared with Limbaugh and Beck, is far to the right of anyone in the demokook leadership and to the right of almost all of the republichicken leadership.

Words mean things, and they are best understood when used in their proper context.

Are you pro life sister gayle? JFK was.

Are you pro tax cuts hsister gayle? JFK was.

Are you pro big business sister gayle? JFK was.

Are you pro big military sister gayle? JFK was.

Are you anti union leadership sister gayle? JFK was.

Are you pro fiscal restraint sister gayle? JFK was.

Are you pro small government sister gayle? JFK was.

In reality, I don't think you agree with JFK on hardly anything.

JFK was too honest, too intelligent, and had way too much concern for America's underprivileged, to be a Republican.
Did I mention he was too smart?

<span style="color: #000066">I agree completely!

No Democratic sets up the tax structure to favor millionaires and billionaires! Some of us recall when nothing trickled down, after the great pretender left, Ronald Reagan, the most over-rated President in our history!

Six tax hikes, and the right still think he was a conservative!</span> /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif

Oh my God!!!!
lww is now claiming that JFK was one a dem, even though he was a Dem.
It's mind boggling...as they decided that McPalin lost because GWB was too liberal....
Next, he'll want to give credit to Nixon for knocking down the Berlin Wall, and Rag-on for handling the missile crisis.

How astute.

I keep forgetting that neither you nor gayle would actually know what any of JFK's policies were.

You support him because you are told to support him.

Today JFK would be a tea partier most likely.

Research is your friend wolf.

He would most certainly have been considered farther right than our last Republican president!!!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

I, for one, would welcome another JFK, especially considering the radical leftist egomaniac we now have in office!!!

No, he wouldn't.
Conservative to moderate? Yes.

The far right are neo-con thugs who believe
that winning is more important than truth.

Look at Dub's posts.

Even Wm. F. Buckley railed against this band of vipers before he died.

Let me get this straight.

You post a thread based on what a great liberal JFK was.

Hondo points out, correctly, that he isn't/wasn't liberal at all by modern standards.

You take the fact that your point was shot down by hondo as proof that hondo proved you right?

That was just precious.

Carter: The Sequel

Former President Jimmy Carter is fuming. Given his disastrous record in office you would think that he would be happy to be compared to the Anointed One, but apparently President Obama has made such a mess that even Carter is now distancing himself.

When foreign policy analyst Walter Russell Meade compared the two in the journal Foreign Policy, Carter submitted a letter to the editor noting this displeasure, stating, "I resent Meade's use of such phrases as, 'In the worst scenario turn him [Obama] into a new Jimmy Carter' to describe my service."

Carter concludes that during his presidency "we greatly expanded our global influence and also protected the security, strength, ideals and integrity of the U.S."</div></div>

Judging by the way things are going, I predict by 2012 President Obama will want to be compared to Carter.

Carter seperates from Obama (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,587408,00.html)

Actually ... people who today call themselves liberals are simply squatters upon the language.

Classic liberalism believed in the small state, minimal state intrusion, low taxation, and personal property rights as well as the state only having the rights the people allowed it to have.

In reality, liberals have allowed others to rebrand them as conservatives.

Back to the beginning, Marx began the modern thought of what statism is today. Upon giving Marxism a bad name to the point Karl Marx uttered his famous "I am not a Marxist!" line they began to call their movement "COMMUNISM" ... how can anyone be against that which is supposedly for the communal good?

Well, once Lenin/Stalin et all turned communism into Hades on Earth the Marxist/Communists began referring to their movement as "SOCIALISM" ... how can anyone be against what is proposed to be for the good of society?

Well ... some folks in Germany led by a paper hanger founded a socialist state in Germany in the 1930's. That ruined the name of socialism.

Next they began calling their movement the "PROGRESSIVE PARTY" ... even ran a candidate for POTUS in 1948. Then it was found out that the movement was funded by Stalin and full of soviet agents.

Never ceasing, they took over the name of "LIBERALISM" in the 1960's ... after JFK mind you ... and under the admins of LBJ and Carter did massive damage to the US economy and society and educational systems and our immigration policy. Again it was found that they were riddled with soviet operatives, including JFK's brother Teddy who had contacts with the soviets during the Reagan admin attempting to undermine US foreign policy, and Jimmuh Cahtuh traversing the globe to undermine 3 subsequent US presidents.

The US far left has retreated unto the old "PROGRESSIVE" name once again on the national stage.

Words mean things.

LWW

With that name
