Ask not what your country can do for you
What your country can do for you
For you
Ask what you can do for your country
Ask not what America can do for you
What America can do for you
For you
But what together we can do
For the freedom of man

To those people in the huts and villages
Across the globe
We pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves
For whatever period is required
Not because the Communists may be doing it
Not because we seek their vote
But because it is right

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor
It cannot save the few who are rich
All this will not be finished
In the first 100 days
Nor will it be finished
In the first 1,000 days
Nor even perhaps in our lifetime
But let us begin

The world is very different now
The torch has been passed
To a new generation of Americans
An new, a new generation of Americans
Let every nation know
That we shall pay any price
Bear any burden, meet any hardship
To assure the survival of liberty
Do you like Mudkips?

JFK was fiscally conservative just like Bill Clinton.

http://www.boston.com...

"It is a paradoxical truth,' he once told the Economic Club of New York, "that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now.' What he had in mind, he said, was "an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes.'

Fiscal conservative =/= conservative.

JFK was a liberal, and there is no real doubt about that. Just because he was fiscally conservative - sorry, fiscally centrist - like Bill Clinton does not mean he was not a liberal.

His social policy, his welfare policy, even his foreign policy is seen as 'liberal'.

Well, I never said JFK or Clinton was a conservative, did I? All I said is that they were fiscally conservative. Bill more-so than JFK, but still.

I never said that you said it, I was just pointing that fact out, as a lot of people - and I have no reason to doubt ReganFan fits into this category - don't know the difference.

With regards to you saying JFK's foreign policy was liberal,

I'd say it was centrist, perhaps a bit hawkish:
>Vietnam, Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis, etc.
