He said what...?




"By calling attention to a 'well regulated militia,' the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extre
mely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of this country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important."
JFK, April, 1960

Heh. Nowadays, Jack would be drummed out of the *Republican* party for being a right-wing ideologue.

We have come to where Bernie Sanders runs for president saying things that Lee Harvey Oswald believed in and killed for. Oswald could easily be Sanders running mate.

They killed him for thinking that way. If it wasn't a coup it might as well have been.

doubletrouble... 100% correct. Strange, eh?

Sunnybrook... True.

David... It was a coup. No doubt about it.
