Compare JFK and Reagan


Last updated 8/13/2020 at 3:11pm

Presidents J.F. Kennedy, a Democrat, and Ronald Reagan, a Republican: I agree with them.

They knew the Constitution was and is a great document.

They believed in free trade, capitalism and the support of our great ally, Israel.

Each believed only U.S. citizens should be allowed to vote in U.S. elections and of course, “one man, one vote.” To make it happen, each knew identity checks at the polls would be necessary but in no way wanted to prevent any American from voting, and of course, none were.

Neither felt homosexuality was right but did not hate homosexuals nor try to forbid their behavior.

They each promised to be tough on crime.

To them giving Social Security dollars to those who never contributed a single penny to Social Security was unthinkable.

They repeatedly said and meant, “God bless America.”

Each knew the difference between protesting, vandalism, rioting and looting, and that only the first was not the handiwork of evil.

Each felt attempting to negotiate with terrorists was a bad tactic.

Each stood for the national anthem with pride and claimed America was a great country.

Each felt abortion was not an ethical form of birth control.

Each exhibited extreme respect of our flag and our military.

Each swore on a Bible to keep us safe and did so.

Each spoke of freedom of speech, even if they themselves disagreed completely with the speaker.

Each understood and supported the meaning of the phrase “God and country.”

Each firmly believed in citizen’s right to bear arms.

Each believed that anything good for America would be good for Americans.

They were conservatives. I agree with them.
