by John Gaudio,
This may be the most famous quote of the great JFK, who knew instinctively that a country of the people, by the people and for the people, can work only when the vast majority of those people take responsibility first for themselves, their families, their local communities, their states, and their country. Compare that to Obama's famous quote, "You didn't build that."
I discovered the wonderful article below, by Kyle Smith, and through it the book, JFK, Conservative, by Ira Stoll. How has the Democratic Party gone so terribly wrong in just fifty years? How have they abandoned their iconic leader, John F. Kennedy, and so many of the good men and women who still call themselves democrats, though they relate far more to the conservative nature of John Kennedy, than to the radical, and as we see confirmed now, truly deceitful nature, of Barack Obama?
John Kennedy understood liberty and freedom. He understood that if the people were to ask what their country could do for them, and depend on the supposed generosity of their country to provide for their needs, those people would not be choosing liberty, or freedom. They would choose, and sadly today, too many of them do choose, the chains of their own slavery.
The Republican party was founded to promote liberty and abolish slavery. The modern progressive Democratic party abolishes liberty, to promote slavery, dependence, decline, and decay, by buying the votes of those who would sell their liberty, their freedom, their self respect, in some cases their very souls, for Obama phones, Obama care, welfare checks, and other shiny appealing bracelets, that form the very chains of their slavery.
The great John F. Kennedy warned them, and us, to avoid such folly.
"Ask not what your country can do for you! Ask what you can do for your country!"
Let us, as good conservative Republicans, echo those wise words as we reach out to our friends and neighbors who may not yet know that the modern progressive Democratic party has abandoned them, as it abandoned JFK. Let us help them understand that the power to cast off those chains is within their grasp!
