188. You know what, QuestionAll? I can't.
The Kennedy assassination was just the first in a series of strange and horrible events in our history that resulted from the same kind of corruption that was behind that assassination. And the culmination (hopefully) of those events was the disastrous Bush presidency.

Read the Oedipus trilogy. A nation cannot find peace until it resolves the crimes that haunt its history. The crime of the Kennedy assassination is our legacy. Its imprint is found in the Nixon Watergate scandal, the Iran-Contra scandal (including the strange fact that Iran released the prisoners only after Reagan's inauguration and that weapons materials were transferred to Iran not too long after that release), the Bush fiasco in Iraq, the Bush thefts from our treasury, the Bush election fraud, etc. Then there is the Abramoff scandal and all that is associated with that. What links these instances of corruption is a seemingly more or less organized assault on our democratic government and on our constitutional processes all of which, quite possibly, can be laid at the feet of a relatively small caste of people. There is no comparable kind of thread of corruption related to the Democratic Party.
