    Huck if you read all of what White Hawk said you will see that the dem party of the early 60's was not the party you came home to. The far left dems have taken over. Loyalty is wonderful but at some point you have to ask yourself why do I support a party that does so many things that I am against? Gun control should be high on that list since your posting here. Also support for the troops should be also. You can't tell me that all the negative comments from the leftist media and the lefty dems does not hurt the moral of our military.
    I'm sure there are many dems like you who were JFK dems but guess what that party is dead.
  2. Very well and reasonably stated, Sat. By today's standards, Kennedy would be considered a moderate Republican, not a Democrat. I'm not at all sure mainstream Democrats of today truly embrace the far left position many prominent Democratic leaders espouse.

    Fight for the soul of the Democratic party!

    I heard the tale end of an interview on the radio about the Democrat Party in the 50's. I wish I had heard the full interview.

    The person being interviewed had written a book about the struggle in the early 50's for control of the Democrat party. Some wanted to pull the party to the far left, and there was some hint of communist and socialist involvement. Others wanted to go a more moderate direction. In the end the moderates won out.

    Today I see a similar battle. I think the average rank and file Democrat is moderate. But under the "big Democrat tent" you have some strong leftist leaders such as Senators Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and out right clowns such as Al Sharpton, and Congressman Dennis Kucinich.

    The Democrat party of 2007 is not John Kennedy's Democrat party of 1961!

    Precisely so, 17th. Were John Kennedy, or perhaps his clone, still alive today and running for President, I might well vote for him. Yes, Kennedy did stand for progressive ideals, but he also stood for American core values as well (Marilyn Monroe notwithstanding :D ). I still remember, as a boy of 13, watching Kennedy live on TV as he delivered his famous and chilling line in October 1962:

    "Third: It shall be the policy of this Nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from Cuba against any nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack by the Soviet Union on the United States, requiring a full retaliatory response upon the Soviet Union."

    The man had values and guts.

    And they are doing such an incredible job. Already they are concentrating on
    such priorities as the myth of global warming, raising the minimum wage, and
    wasting our tax dollars by voting on a meaningless resolution on the war.

    Can't wait to see them really roll up their sleeves.

    I understand that JFK was also quite friendly with Angie Dickinson. I read that, when she was asked what it was like to sleep with JFK, she responded. " Oh, it was great. Best 20 seconds of my life." :eek: :D
