  --President John F. Kennedy encompasses Americanism and Patriotism and will be remembered forever.


  Kennedy addressed the senate in 1962 saying “Members of the Congress, the Constitution makes us not rivals for power, but partners for progress. We are all trustees for the American people, custodians of the American heritage. It is my task to report the State of the Union--to improve it is the task of us all.” Kennedy believed in Constitutional Governance and that it was the elected officials responsibility to preserve American values. “The American Heritage” as Kennedy said, are the principles and values that are ingrained into the fabric of American society. Such as preserving Liberty, Fighting Tyranny and ensuring everyone has access to the American dream. He believed the government should represent the interests of the people rather than serving its own interests.

  John F. Kennedy was a war hero who earned a purple medal for his heroism on the Solomon Islands during WW2. His love for America and the values we stand for reflect his bravery at war, actions as President and ultimately the legacy he left behind. 

  Kennedy volunteered to serve in WW2 at 18 years old. Beginning in military intelligence, he would eventually transfer himself to a much riskier job: a PT Boat patroller. PT Boats are 80 foot long and only hold 12 people. They are fast boats designed to shoot torpedoes at large targets. One night at 2:30am a 300 foot Japanese destroyer crashed into PT-109, Kennedy’s boat. This essentially split the boat into two and 2 crewmen were dead on impact. The remaining crewmen, including Kennedy, were now treading water in the cold pacific. Kennedy’s heroism began when he noticed one crew member was burned severely, he could not swim. They were three miles from shore. Kennedy took a strap from a life preserver, tied it to the burned crewman and stuck it in his teeth. He swam, dragging this man with his teeth, all the way to shore. Once they made it to shore they were still in danger. As in the morning Japanese patrol boats patrol that area and there was no food or fresh water on the island. Kennedy eventually swims to a different Island and writes a message on a coconut which he gives to a native who delivers it to the Navy. They were rescued and Kennedy earned a purple heart for his heroism. He would carry that purple heart into the Oval Office. 

  Kennedy was vehemently anti-communist. He once called the Soviet Union a “Ruthless Godless Tyranny." Kennedy carried American values with him through his presidency. During his 1961 inaugural address he said "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty." Preservation of liberty is an American tradition, as subversive forces have attempted to thwart individual liberties of Americans since America’s conception. Kennedy was the last Democrat to stand up for Americanism and Constitutional values. Kennedy believed in the population of the United States, he believed the people beared the burden of maintaining Liberty at home and abroad. He was quoted saying, "Let no man of peace and freedom despair. For he does not stand alone." He knew the American people were willing to stand together in their fight against tyranny. A responsibility that is encompassed by the famous Kennedy quote, “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

 Kennedy understood the importance of the free market. He proved so by lowering the top income tax bracket from 91% to 63%. President Kennedy knew high taxes were putting people out of work. Taxes got so high people couldn't afford to buy much of anything. Companies couldn't sell their products, so people got laid off and other people never got hired. He was quoted saying “The federal government's most useful role is not to rush into a program of excessive increases in public expenditures, but to expand the incentives and opportunities of private expenditures.” He knew the economy needed a shot in the arm and the result of the tax cuts was, as reported by Econdataus, “As can be seen, real income tax revenues did go up sharply (54.0% from $301.19 billion to $463.84 billion) from 1965 to 1969.” People became richer due to Kennedy’s tax cuts. Kennedy proving that letting individuals keep more of their paycheck leads to more prosperity and economic development.

  Kennedy famously came out against secret societies and secret proceedings just months before his assassination in Dallas. Kennedy said “The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.” Subversive elements of the Federal Government were seeking to halt Kennedy’s efforts to bring transparency to the CIA as well as end the Federal Reserve’s monopoly over the United States Dollar. On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Rothschild Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Rothschild Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. The executive order put new United States Notes into the money circulation backed by silver. As opposed to the fiat (Federal Reserve Notes) currency, circulated since 1914. President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 and the United States Notes he had issued were immediately taken out of circulation. 

  JFK was quoted saying he would like to “splinter the C.I.A. in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” He understood the subversive operations taking place in the CIA. Whether it's MK-ULTRA mind control programs or Operation Northwoods (a planned anti-Cuban false flag attack against American citizens in Florida) the corruption of the H.W. Bush controlled CIA was prevalent. Kennedy believed in American sovereignty and transparency in government. He understood that the CIA was working toward its own interests and not in the interests of the American people.


  Kennedy challenging the Deep State, ultimately lead to his death. His death represents the change of power from the people to the Deep State.

  Entrenched establishment politician, LBJ becomes president and drags us into the Vietnam war almost immediately. Doing so under the false pretenses of the Gulf of Tonkin incident. When the North Vietnamese supposedly attacked and sunk the USS Maddox unprovoked. But Underground Knowledge reports, “A National Security Agency (NSA) report on the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, declassified in 2005, concluded that USS Maddox had engaged the North Vietnamese Navy on August 2, 1964, but (and this is a big but)The Maddox fired three rounds to warn off the communist boats. This initial action was never reported by the Johnson administration, which insisted that the Vietnamese boats fired first.” This declassified document proves LBJ lied about the Gulf of Tonkin incident and drove us into war unjustifiably. The war, which Kennedy sought to avoid, would cost the United States 58,220 lives and ultimately accomplish nothing on a diplomatic scale. As the North Vietnamese would eventually invade South Vietnam and turn the whole country into a communist state.

  John F. Kennedy is an American hero and his death is one of the major tragedies of the 20th century. As one of the most popular, patriotic and influential presidents in history, the legacy he left behind will live forever. Kennedy represents the Democratic party of old, a party that valued Constitutionality, Americanism and Liberty. Kennedy believed America had a special role in the world, he believed we are exceptional. That American values such as representing the individual and Constitutional governance were special in the context of history. 

  Kennedy’s inspiring outlook on America is encompassed by this one quote, “I look forward to a great future for America - a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose.” Americans’ purpose is to preserve self-governance and Liberty for generations to come. Just as generations before have done for us. John F. Kennedy will live forever in the hearts and minds of patriots across America. His legacy of service to country, bravery and American pride will forever represent what it means to be an American. All Americans have been burdened with the task of preserving Liberty and maintaining the American experiment. Kennedy took this responsibility and set an example for all as to what it means to be an American.
