There are some who assert that Ronald Reagan would not be welcome in today's Republican Party. Rubbish! Reagan would be leading the charge for smaller government and less taxes. That's the platform he ran on and the one on which he built the longest and most robust economic recovery in American history.
Reagan would feel right at home with the Tea Party and so would John F. Kennedy. Watch the following short video. Can you imagine Obama saying this today?
JFK embraces tax cuts to spur economic growth 50 years ago and 20 years before Reagan signed his landmark legislation.
In the Boston Globe Jeff Jacoby asks "Would Democrats embrace JFK now?":
Today’s Democratic Party — the home of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Al Gore — wouldn’t give the time of day to a candidate like JFK.Those who say the Republican Party has done too far right first need to answer why the Democrat Party has gone so far left that they would abandon JFK. Both Reagan and JFK had the right idea and history has proven their case. Why do today's Democrats deny it?
