Remember the party of JFK? This is the essence of the Democratic platform JFK represented in his campaign for president.
The new Democratic Administration will recast our military capacity in order to provide forces and weapons of a diversity, balance, and mobility sufficient in quantity and quality to deter both limited and general aggressions.
The new Democratic Administration will seek international agreements to assure fair competition and fair labor standards to protect our own workers and to improve the lot of workers elsewhere.
The new Democratic Administration will confidently proceed to unshackle American enterprise and to free American labor, industrial leadership, and capital, to create an abundance that will outstrip any other system.
In recent years, we have been faced with a shocking increase in crimes of all kinds. Organized criminals have even infiltrated into legitimate business enterprises and labor unions. The new Democratic Administration will take vigorous corrective action.
The Democratic Party favors realistic and effective limitations on contributions and expenditures, and full disclosure of campaign financing in Federal elections. We further propose a tax credit to encourage small contributions to political parties. The Democratic Party affirms that every candidate for public office has a moral obligation to observe and uphold traditional American principles of decency, honesty, and fair play in his campaign for election.
We deplore efforts to divide the United States into regional, religious, and ethnic groups. We denounce and repudiate campaign tactics that substitute smear and slander, bigotry, and false accusations of bigotry, for truth and reasoned argument.
We vigorously reject the notion that America, with a half-trillion-dollar gross national product, and nearly half of the world's industrial resources, cannot afford to meet our needs at home and in our world relationships.
We believe, moreover, that except in periods of recession or national emergency, these needs can be met with a balanced budget, with no increase in present tax rates, and with some surplus for the gradual reduction of our national debt.
This is not the platform of the party today that still refers to itself as a Democrat Party. The Democrat Party of today is a party that is calling for the overthrow of American institutions, defunding the police, greatly increased spending and taxes, reducing military spending, government control on businesses and individuals. Open borders with unlimited and uncontrolled immigration, government programs for free medical care, education, housing, and any other program deemed as a means of receiving more votes.
If any American votes for any Democrat today, remember you are not voting for a JFK Democrat but you are voting for a Sanders and AOC Democrat, a Democrat who supports the Marxist totalitarian state called for by Obama when he promised to fundamentally transform the United States.
Democrats, when you are voting you must ask yourself if you wish to live in a country like Cuba and Venezuela because those countries have the same programs your party is promoting.
