When Liberals Took Over
Prior to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 the culture in the United States was very stable and a balanced mix of conservatives and moderate liberals in Washington. Then in 1963 the assassination was a turning point. It changed our political makeup specifically and our culture in general. J. F. K. was popular and had good ideas for the U. S. A. His death was a stunning and serious blow to the direction and culture of the United States. The effects still linger to this day.
As a result of the assassination, Vice-President Lynden B. Johnson assumed the presidency. And it was the beginning of the political and cultural decline, the social decline, and the moral decline of the United States. However, the political decline that became more liberal progressed more slowly than the other three declines. The other three declines. The other declines progressed quite rapidly in comparison.
Soon after L. B. J. took office, he got us involved in Vietnam, which J. F. K. was strongly against. And our involvement in Vietnam was a disaster and resulted in 58, 000 military death and injured soldiers by the thousands. After 8+ years the U. S. Pulled out of the war, and soon after that the communists controlled all of Vietnam.
Meanwhile, in the U.S.A. negative cultural events began taking place because of the war. The negative cultural events are still with us 45+ years later.
The negative events taking place at that time consisted of military reservists were being called to active duty away from their jobs and college attendance. Other single men 18-35 were also called to military duty interrupting their lives. Big military losses were going on in the war zone. Soon, rioting began on college campuses an in the streets. Military armeries and college buildings were being set afire and other damage was taking place in neighborhoods. The Hippy movement originated In California and quickly spread in other states in the U.S. Social law and order was being threatened in many places. The counter-culture movement was born and soon became alive and well, indeed. The new philosophy was “out with the old, in with the new. If it feels good, do it. Don’t trust anyone over 30 years old.” The moral compass of hundreds-of-thousands of young people (and later older people) was thrown away. That lead to drugs, promiscuous sex, co-habitation, the Beatles and others, Rock’s Roll music, counter culture lyrics, long hair (he-she looking men), slovenly appearances, beards, mini-skirts, divorces, immorality on a large scale, wife-swapping, declining church attendance, and greater disciplinary problem in our schools. The good workable curriculums in our schools was overhauld, and education was dumbed-down (and other social skills also). The counter-culture legacy was in full bloom. It´s what we have going today. It’s a very sad commentary on the great country we were prior to 1963.
In Washington good conservative laws and thinking were relaxed to appease the counter-culture activities. An over-balance toward liberalism was taking place. It was the end of the more ideal moral, neat, God-fearing society that existed everywhere in our United States before L. B. J. and his “great society” took over.
Religiously considering, Satan took over. From 1963 to the present he had a field-day so to speak. The counter-culture philosophy, liberal attitudes and laws, and the workings in Washington the past 44+ years have given us what we have going on today. Our fore-fathers and deceased family members are turning over in their graves with dismay. What is going on today in our culture and society is totally unacceptable. The counter-culture originals and their descendents, L. B. J., liberal thinkers, the U. S. Supreme Court decisions (Roe vs. Wade on abortion, especially), and the law-makers in Washington get the blame. Their despicable and deplorable attitudes and actions are their legacy. Their legacy belongs on the trash heap.
