Recalling The Past: John Fitzgerald Kennedy
It occurs to me that Americans generally are apathetic and complacent. American People trust that government will always be there to protect their rights and provide security from foreign invasion. Results demonstrate a contrary outcome regardless of promises made by elected representatives.
The Constitution itself is misinterpreted and misrepresented by all three branches of the federal government, and the indoctrination in public education has effectively removed the true first branch of government from the awareness of the majority of the People.
It must be We the People who rise up and reclaim that constitutional representative republican form of governance or else give in to totalitarian tyranny over us all.
Read the Constitution and discuss it among your friends and families. Research the writings of those men who are called the framers and founders to see what their feelings and thoughts were that inspired them to create such a unique form of governance in which the People were the sovereign(s) and the government(s) were their subjects and in their service.
"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." - JFK
What did he really mean by that? To discover the answer you must read the man, listen to all of his public addresses, and know that while he was a Democrat, he was a patriot and statesman. He was also a war hero. His view of America greatly contrasted with those in Washington at the time, and those who were influencing changes in government and policies, that greatly affected the nation.
Why was he assassinated?
Regardless of how many fired upon him or who orchestrated the killing on that horrible day in Dallas, the plot was not simply the work of a sick minded expatriate: it has turned out to be much more different than we were led to believe at the time.
As we observe Veteran's Day and honor those who put their lives on the line defending liberty for us all, it must be our duty to also defend liberty so that those who died fighting for it did not die in vain.
To all Veterans who gave their lives and to those who came home to tell of the horror of war, I salute you for the courage and honor you have displayed by your action in defense of the United States of America and protecting We the People.
