The Democrat party of JFK's time was more conservative that the Republican party is today. There were two pro-American political parties then. Today we have one anti-American party, and one week kneed go along party.Today's Democrat party would have been called the Communist party back then. As a country, we have been drifting to the left for years. Thank you diversity/multiculturalism, illegal immigration, immigration from overwhelmingly third world countries, affirmative action, and public education.
