    JFK's death changed this nation in ways we can only imagine.

    Viet Nam?

    Don't think it would have gone the way it did.

    Silver certirficate money competing with FED RESERVE's fiat dollars?

    Would have happened.

    It seriously started going downhill post Dallas.

    iirc, some of the LBJ white house tapes have been released recently

    although they in no way amount to the Nixon debacle, they portray a potus who had certain private fobiles never revealed publicly

    for instance, he apparently granted his advisors and confidants much more validity than Kennedy did, JFK being more confident

    seems they steered him wrong , to where Nixon took advantage and initiative to step in
