Here’s one thing that I love about Jack Kennedy. He wasn’t anti-government and neither am I, but he did have a healthy skepticism about what government could do for people. Meaning he didn’t want government trying to do everything for everybody or trying to take care of everyone. But he believed that government including the Federal Government could play a healthy role in seeing that all Americans had the opportunity to live in freedom. John F. Kennedy believed that all Americans including African-Americans and others should be able to get themselves the skills to do so. Which is why he was a real Liberal Democrat and not a Conservative or Social Democrat. He was the Bill Clinton of the 1950s and 60s, or Clinton was the JFK of the 1990s. But they both believed that government shouldn’t try to do everything or nothing for people. But help those who need it get themselves the tools that they need to live well in life.
