Let's hope so.

    It seems to be going the other way but, I'm with Archer, I hope so.

    It seems the pragmatic Kennedy wouldn't agree with crusading Bush. Conquest is a sign of Imperialism; a far cry from the Republic we were constituted to be. The preemptive use of force, in a sounding call towards democracy, violates the heart, tradition, and culture of American society.

    Kennedy was great and an independent thinker. He also said and I paraphrase, "Sometimes party loyalty demands too much.", which seems to be consistent with the diversity he champions here.

    Are first loyalty should be to truth. Our current election for president and those that seek this office leave much to be worked on and for.

    Actually, I think it's both the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed AND the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free people. The Conquest will comefirst followed by the Liberation. He was a great man who died way too early. I miss him.
