From a policy standpoint (personal pecadillos aside), JFK — with his support of lower taxes and strong military — would qualify as a far-right wingnut in the perverted minds of today’s loony left.
Yes, and where do you think the loony left would put "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country!" If they really thought their president believed that, they'd run screaming for the hills!
GMTA on all of your #4 - add in the point made further down the thread on regular use of these JFK quotes back to the D-libs that seek to take away freedom today = so what’s the problem and who changed to where we are today? IIRC, Hubert Humphrey also was a staunch 2A defender with some good quotes that ought to go back in their face.
It’s unfortunate to have to note that the usually-conservative Ronald Reagan was an instigator of how CA got to where their firearms laws stand today, totally in reaction to student and Black Panther violence in the 60s while Reagan was governor.
