“But DAD!!?? FDR won World War II and got us out of the depression, and JFK was assassinated!” (As a kid educated in publik skool they were idols to me.)
“FDR was terrible for the USA during the depression, and JFK was a womanizer and a liberal.” That was all he said - I wish he had told me more.
It wasn't until college (and Reagan) that I understood what my old man was talking about (and agreed with him, and could talk more with him). He had some rough years in business under Carter. I'm glad that he got to see Reagan be president!

From the first paragraph:
“Who are the main culprits? Heres my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.”
