The Survival And Success Of Liberty.

This year's presidential campaign has focused on one phrase from John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address.
"Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate."
Senator Barack Obama has adopted that short phrase as the theme of his proposed foreign policy. An earlier phrase from the same speech says much more about what makes America the great nation that it remains to this day.
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
Don't hold your breath waiting for the Junior Senator from Illinois to quote that phrase to his adoring followers to explain his proposed foreign policy.
