I am old enough to remember Democratic President John F. Kennedy when he instructed our nation to “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
Kennedy spoke to all Americans — including the disenfranchised — not only to the disenfranchised.
Today, the Democratic message appears to be “Ask your country to fix your problems.”
This, at least, was what Democratic candidate Kerith Strano Taylor suggested as she talked about her desire to go to Washington and advocate for causes like abortions and money.

She said she could change Washington and get them working the way she felt they should be working.
Her goals for this country are socialistic at best, and she would be one more vote for a liberal House speaker.
Fortunately, we have a representative who works to represent all of his constituents. Rep. Glenn Thompson continues to carry Kennedy’s call to his fellow citizens.
If Kennedy could hear today’s Democratic message, I have to believe he would shake his head and change his party.
