The two most fiscal conservative presidents in 50y

The two most fiscal conservative presidents in 50 years

In my opinion, the two most fiscally conservative presidents in the past fifty years have been JFK and Bill Clinton.

When people say conservative each has a different perspective.

A conservative for some is a Pro military use, Salute the Flag, loudly Patriotic American, like Rush Limbaugh or Savage on the Radio. I see a lot of guys doing that for political and monetary gain, but they are not true conservatives. They are just somewhat patriotic guys trying to use public opinion for personal gain.

A TRUE conservative is one who does what is best for this country. Granted, that is my opinion, but I dare anyone to offer proof that THAT is wrong.

JFK and Bill Clinton tried not to add to the national debt. They tried not to get into long drawn out foreign conflicts. That was good for the country. Both of them were acting on true conservative beliefs.

A lot of people did not know that JFK had made the decision to pull the "advisory military assistance force" out of Vietnam before we got too tied up in a corrupt and illogical conflict. He came to that conclusion just a week or so before he was assassinated. If you want to read about it, read the book Johnny-We-Hardly-Knew-Ye. Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye: Kenneth P Odonnell, David Powers: Books

A true conservative will find ways to put people to work in growing American businesses by growing American businesses. That can be done by creating an environment that is conducive to the strong growth of business. That, in turn, puts people to work. To those of you who are religious, let me hear an AMEN!


Our latest political bent is to increase taxes on business. Insanity! Just ask JFK. That cuts profits and thus puts businesses out of business or forces them to move to other countries where the tax treatment is not so onerous. And then we wonder why jobs are leaving America? Hummmm?

If we create jobs, the people will have work. If we destroy jobs, what is the result? I'm a conservative. I believe in creating jobs and putting people to work. I never have been able to understand liberals and their attacks on American business.
