.. Was John Kennedy a liberal ?

.. As we know it now , no . Anyone who had been through the competition of the Kennedy family wars , Harvard , and World War II would most likely not be a modern liberal . Not even close . Kennedy was not only pro – civil rights , but also an internationalist in foreign affairs . Not to mention a strong position on defence . JFK was no wuss , unlike the current First Wuss .

.. Was JFK a conservative ? Not quite . But close . Being a strong supply side economics tax cutter , before the term had been invented , certainly got him started on the road . Especially from where the tax rates were when Kennedy got started . A marginal tax rate (at a high point) of 90 % . Wow .

… more to come …
