Quotational Therapy: Part 9 -- JFK, On Social Security.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy on Social Security (1961)-

“The Social Security program plays an important part in providing for families, children, and older persons in times of stress. But it cannot remain static. Changes in our population, in our working habits, and in our standard of living require constant revision.”

JFK never had to deal with the partisan political antics of today!...He may not have ever met people like Harry Reid and some of his pals!...JFK was a Democrat when Democrats still had the American peoples needs in mind!...I really believe the Democrats need to take a look at themselves. They really represent anti American views if you ask me! My grandad was a Big time Democrat until Carter. Actually he voted for him the first time. The second time Carter ran, I remember him saying he never thought he would never have voted for a Republican but that he did today!... JFK was a different kind of Democrat! Quite different from the Democrats of today!

Zsa Zsa rox my sox off...
Anyways. Yes JFK sounds like he knows what he is talking about. He had the youthful additude that I believe the youth of today still continues to carry. When you can forsee the future and understand with common sense that things will change, and therefore other things will need to conform to the change, I believe that makes an intelligent person. If only more people today had this mentality.
