President John Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural address is considered to be a classic speech. In it, he invoked his famous line, “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
In the 52 years since his violent death, let us reflect upon what he did as president.
In his presidency, Mr. Kennedy cut taxes.
In his presidency, Mr. Kennedy used NASA to put a man on the moon.
In his presidency, Mr. Kennedy faced down evil during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
How times change.
President Obama believes Americans are under-taxed.
President Obama believes that NASA is an instrument of social justice to improve relations with Muslims.
President Obama bows to our enemies.
Most of all, President Obama rejects Kennedy’s philosophy of “ask not what your country can do for you …” Our current President even thinks government (taxpayers) should pay for your abortions. His brigade of “snowflakes” on college campuses scream for free college tuition, mandated wages, and guaranteed jobs, while simultaneously labeling any ‘hostile speech’ (ideas with which they disagree) as hate speech.
If John Kennedy were alive today, would he still be a Democrat?
