And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country… In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course.” – President John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address January 20, 1961.
I was a JFK Democrat. President John F. Kennedy was my idol while growing up. JFK was a war hero who was elected the first Catholic President of these United States of America. As a Catholic I was overwhelmed by JFK. He was a passionate man, a man dedicated to defending the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
JFK was a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association. It was JFK who introduced the lighter AR-15 rifle, in NATO 5.56 caliber, into military arsenals over the objections of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The generals wanted the heavier M-14 rifle in the NATO 7.62 caliber.
JFK hated communism as evidenced by his policies to undermine the former Soviet Union, his operation, known as the “Bay of Pigs” invasion, of Communist Cuba under Castro and his expansion of U.S. military presence in South Vietnam to stand against the North Vietnamese Communists.
JFK and his brother Robert were pro-law enforcement and anti-crime. Just look at how AG Robert Kennedy went after organized crime.
From JFK to JRB
Fast forward to 2021 and we can clearly see the stark differences between these two “Democrats”, who are the only two “Catholic” presidents, John F. Kennedy and Joe R. Biden.
The differenced couldn’t be more profound. While JFK wanted to engage with the American people as equal partners, Biden told the America people to obey his mandates or face the consequences (e.g. get jabbed or lose your job, declaring parents enemies of the state).
Benjamin Shapell and Sara Willen in their “The John F. Kennedy Centenary” wrote:
Kennedy, the first President born in the 20th century, and 27 years younger than his predecessor, Dwight D. Eisenhower, had just declared that the torch had been passed to a new generation of Americans – “born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage” – and pledged to “pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” Then he spoke the seventeen words – “And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”
JFK stated during his inaugural address, “And the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility. I welcome it.”
Joe Biden is the antithesis of JFK.
Biden has laid out the following goals for his “Build Back Better” agenda:
- “Build a Modern Infrastructure” [More government spending]
- “Position the U.S. Auto Industry to Win the 21st Century with technology invented in America” [Mandate the auto industry comply or else]
- “Achieve a Carbon Pollution-Free Power Sector by 2035” [Green New Deal]
- “Make Dramatic Investments in Energy Efficiency in Buildings, including Completing 4 Million Retrofits and Building 1.5 Million New Affordable Homes” [More Green New Deal mandates]
- “Pursue a Historic Investment in Clean Energy Innovation” [Green New Deal on asteroids]
- “Advance Sustainable Agriculture and Conservation” [Famers required to be green or else]
- “Secure Environmental Justice and Equitable Economy Opportunity” [Equal people are not free and free people are not equal]
Which Democrat is more pro-American? Which president is more Catholic? Which president is dedicated to we the people?
Everyone is now laughing at the Biden administration. Biden and his handlers (he has handlers because he is incompetent) are the laughing stock of the whole world.
What is even sadder is that his policies and political positions are now harming working class Americans. Consumer confidence has now reached a 22 year low. It has not been this low since the DotCom implosion under Bill Clinton.
From Biden’s broken national security policies, to his disaster in Afghanistan, to the ongoing border crisis (the border patrol estimated that illegal aliens will top a million for the month of September), to a dangerous immigration policy, to the Democrat controlled Congress’ bills that raise taxes, increase spending and turn one group against another have many Americans of all races crying.
Biden is now openly anti-American in everything that he, and his administration, does. Americans are today paying over $1.00 more per gallon of gasoline at the pump. Oil prices reached $80 per barrel, double the price under Trump prior to the virus from China. And Biden is just getting started on implementing draconian energy policies to “save the planet” from climate change. Go figure!
I judge people, and presidents, by the content of their characters. JFK had character. JRB is a caricature.
Gird your loins. We have 3 more years of JRB.
