Not really old history just forgotten according to history Professor David Kaiser.
How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media – did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and change. And the people surely got what they voted for.You know who he is talking about. And if you don't read the essay.
It is obvious we are far down the road when Congress Critters vote in favor of a bill they are not allowed to read.
You may find Professor Kaiser's book, The Road to Dallas: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy of interest.
