"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men." - JFK

Too many of us now days just want life to be easy and all about ourselves. What about becoming strong? Achieving what you want and what you can? What about strength through adversity?

It makes me sick to think the modern democratic party holds men like JFK in esteem when they aren't even close to being of the same caliber.

I could say the same about Republicans and Reagan...

Ugh that's not the point.

You know what, let's just all deflect. Confronting issues is so out... I hate when people change the subject. Sure you could say that about Republicans. Go make your own thread about it.

I'm not even sure what to say to this which isn't derailing.

I guess Clinton had the same idea as JFK.

Dat a$$.

What do you mean by "Too many of us now days just want life to be easy and all about ourselves." ? If anything, ultra-liberal folks who would advocate for extensive social programs are actually thinking about other people- not just themselves.

And if you're referring to the extremely self-centered, technologically oriented culture which we all take part in by buying more and more fancy tools which make our lives easier but also more isolated, then why is this thread about democrats?

Um... didn't JFK's administration, as well as LBJ's directly following it, *start* the modern welfare system? I know JFK lasted only three years, but as far as I can tell his policies were aimed at creating the current social assistance programs you're disparaging - look at the New Frontier programs that JFK supported, and which formed some of LBJ's Great Society policies directly afterwards.

In other words, stop cherrypicking statements.
