Thought Experiment: Kennedy inaugural address

As we watch the continuing economic implosion of socialist Europe, I would offer this thought experiment especially to those who continue to vote Democrat:

Consider the fact that at his inaugural address in 1960, at the most desperate point in the nuclear standoff of the cold war, Kennedy famously challenged the nation by stating, “So my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

Democrats, ask yourselves, could Pelosi, Reed, or Obama possibly issue the above Kennedy admonition? Of course not.

They, like the European socialist politicians, are the protectors and the advocates for the entitlement state. They are the exact opposite of those who would have embraced Kennedy’s patriotic admonition. But because they seem unaware of the immutable laws of human existence and of macro economics, Obama and the Europeans cannot reverse the tsunami of bankruptcy which is about to send their collectivism into the dustbin of history.

About the Author:

Larry Kelley’s life was utterly changed by 9/11. On the day after the attacks, on his way to work, he was struck by the sudden realization that World War III had commenced. Like most Americans he desperately wanted to find out who were these people who attacked us, what could ordinary citizens do to join the battle and how can those plotting to kill us in future attacks be defeated. Mr. Kelley has written scores of columns on the dangers of western complacency.
