he'd be remembered as a lying, cheating Democrat, and not as a martyr. He was not a great president, he escalated our involvement in Vietnam (Democrats got us in, a Republican got us out.) True, he was pro-gun. He was also a big government socialist.rhino465 said:I think that if JFK were alive today.....
Teddy is not only a disgrace to the name "Kennedy", but all Irishmen everywhere. Not all of us have forgotten what letting ourselves get disarmed allowed to happen in the old country.rhino465 said:I think that if JFK were alive today, he'd bit**-slap his little brother Teddy for what he's been doing his whole life.
I say first that if we're going to talk about money-printing (fraud, even if done how you describe), we should start another thread.LAK said:
He also attempted to get a certain chartered private bank out of the business of charging us usury on the issue of our own money. Of course his successor, LBJ put a stop to that one not a week after he was buried.
Fiat money's origins are in paper that was a promise to pay in metal, and the printer ultimately couldn't because he'd made too many paper claims on a smaller amount of metal.DHMeieio said:No doubt orchestrated by those in control of The Agenda, determined to thwart the massive groundswell of support for return to a precious-metal standard. Boy, we would really be living in the land of milk and honey if only our currency had a meaningless tie to a vault full of minerals. We'd have the most accepted, most stable currency in the world--oh wait, we already have that. Gotta love those 19th-Century economics concepts.
Bobby tried to outcommie the commies in the Democrat Party in order to seize control and got whacked for it. Thats one of the theories I have heard. Since he never really got much power we wont know what he would have actually done in office. We DO know that he worked for McCarthy and that both his father and his brother were closely allied with McCarthy in the 1950s.Battler said:JF Kennedy was a socialist. His brother Robert was even worse. Robert Kennedy is remembered fondly for (other than being killed, which is what makes JFK such a hero) advocating pretty radical wealth redistribution, even for his day.
I dont believe so. I think they are both dead because they wouldnt go along.Battler said:Were either of the deceased kennedys here today, they, in moving with the times, would probably (openly) be worse than Ted.
When I entertain conspiracy theories I always pay attention to what happened in their aftermath. Certain assassinations throughout history have drastic consequences, previously unlikely, come about as a direct result of them. One is WWI after the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand by an "anarchist" hitman. Another is the drastic hard left turn taken by the Democrat party after the assassination of JFK.Battler said:Amongst all the conspiracy theories, I've always entertained the possibility that they were simply murdered by nutballs/lunatics.
