19. They weren't just marginal

They were also effective. And of course no Republican would want to go back to 70 percent taxes. But denying history doesn't change it. It only reflects on your understanding of it.

What's the big deal anyway? Why do people need to make JFK into a saint? He was a politician. Yes, it's very sad he was killed, but people seriously get carried away with their hero worship of him. I'm guessing cause you folks were at a certain age and it effected you greatly, and when you saw a lot of shit unfold afterward you thought, the world would be better if he had lived. Who knows. Maybe in terms of Vietnam, but LBJ was more progressive domestically. Regardless, there are no what ifs in history. He was killed. The country went on the path it did. Making him into some fantasy version of the perfect president doesn't change any of that.
