    JFK was strong on national defense and for cutting taxes to stimulate economic growth, foreign ideas to liberals ruining the Democraps today.

    This fiscal cliff debate is over raising taxes on working people and slashing the DoD budget in the middle of a war against worldwide terrorism that killed more Americans on US soil than previous all modern era wars combined.

    So no liberal on this board should ever try to use JFK in your arguments here, he wouldn't be with you today.

    By that same standard, Eisenhower, Nixon and even Reagan wouldn't be welcome in the batshit crazy insane asylum that is the TeaBagging party.

    That is not to say that he might have had different opinions today.

    Idiot, JFK realized tax rates needed to fall to simulate the economy, something you don't claim. So idiot, JFK would laugh at you wanting to raise them again in this economy and when our society is different today.

    More people own their homes compared to when JFK was living, more people own personal luxury items like HDTVs, smartphones, etc. The 1960s....people were more poor than people today that are claimed to be poor.

    Advances in phones, computers, etc happened in the 80s....when Reagan was pushing for lower tax rates and supply side economics. Technology goes hand in hand with R&D from investment, mostly private and some public. You harm investment according to JFK when you raise taxes......see simpleton. Carter would've prevented Silicone Valley if he beat Reagan.....no Apple and Microsoft today perhaps.
