What makea a Democrat tick?

And why have they changed so much through the years? Just ran across a part of John F. Kennedy's Inauguration address of January 20, 1961 which goes:

"We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty."

Can you imagine any Democrat President making that same statement from Jimmy Carter forward? I didn't think so. They all care too much what the rest of the world thinks of us--especially all of the newly named third world countries and beginning with the elitist Europeans starting with France and Germany.

With the exception of the UK those people just never learned how to say "thank you" at their mother's knees. I'm thinking they either feel guilty or spend time thinking up reasons why they shouldn't be grateful that we did just what Kennedy said we would continue to do.

I realize there are strategy concerns for us, but the fact that we have bases at our expense in their countries which alleviates the need for them to pony up the funding to defend themselves just reinforces their sense of entitlement and that "the Yanks will do it."

Watching the political circuses throughout the world is making me wonder just what goes into the personalities of folks in different countries and why they act as they do--

Have a good week--
God bless..........

ps-I'm going to give this comment thing a test. Just click on the word "comment" at the end of the post and a "Leave Your Comment" area will appear. Just write what you want to say in that box.

Then go to "Choose an Identity" and click on whichever one you want--Name, nickname or URL or Anonymous. (Frankly I don't know what the Open ID means.)

Then click on "Publish your comment"
