John Fitzgerald “Jack Kennedy was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Being driven by a master Capitalist, Joseph P Kennedy, Jack went all the way to the top. He did pay his dues every step of the way as a patriot.
When the American way of life was threatened during World War II, young Kennedy tried to enlist in the Army only to be rejected because of a bad back.
Not being deterred he went to the Navy and had his dad call in favors so he could go to combat for his fellow Americans. Kennedy wound up as a skipper of a PT boat and undertook a disastrous rescue mission. The deaths and injuries on that PT boat are convincing evidence that Kennedy was no coward. Kennedy in fact was like every other member of his crew, a genuine hero.
Jack Kennedy understood the importance of a national defense and our Second Amendment when he became a life member of the National Rifle Association.
Kennedy was elected to the Senate and later as our President. The Communist menace was everywhere including inside our own government. Kennedy went to Berlin, Germany to proclaim our alliance to the German people standing up to Communism and gave his famous, “Ich bien eine Berliner!” speech at the newly erected wall to imprison a nation.
Kennedy stood up to the Soviet Union and at least made an effort to defeat Fidel Castro during the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion. The Communists in our own Congress deserve credit for the failure of that mission. When the Soviet Union brought missals to Cuba threatening America Kennedy stood tall and strong.
I will never say I agreed with everything Jack Kennedy did, but I never once questioned whose side he was on. Imagine a President today saying, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” Instead today the presidential message is, “We must redistribute the wealth.”
Of course after France gave up it was JFK who brought our troops into the effort to protect South Viet Nam from Uncle Ho and his Chinese Communist friends. It was Uncle Ho’s fellow American Communists that prevented a win over the North by shortchanging our military troops of their weaponry and other resources. As a result of our own Communists nearly 60 thousand of our young men came home in rubber bags. We can’t blame JFK for the acts of the traitors in our own Congress.
I don’t know what happened to his brother, Teddy Kennedy but the Irish curse of alcoholism pickled his brain for sure. He went the way of the Bolsheviks.
Today, I know that Jack Kennedy would loathe what the administration of Barack Obama is doing today. We must stop this cancer on America before it spreads any further.
