My father did his best to make sure that America’s lamp of hope and promise burned brightly. He knew America’s strength was in its founding principles and its people, not its government.
He knew if he kept taxes low, regulations rare and America strong, the future would be even brighter for future generations.
Four years ago no one expected Barack Obama -- a community organizer with no understanding or appreciation of what it takes to succeed in the private sector -- to think or act like Ronald Reagan.
But it’s too bad for the country that Mr. Obama didn’t behave more like one of his favorite rich men, John F. Kennedy. Kennedy, for all his faults, knew that the best way to assure a better future for our children was by lowering taxes, making the country strong and believing in the greatness and goodness of America.
Hope and change had little to do with it.
