From President John F. Kennedy:
We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.
Taking President Kennedy’s words, one can clearly understand that, from Obama’s comments regarding our access to information, this government is afraid of its people. It has been 10 months since Barack Obama held a press conference. By comparison, on March 6, 1963, after being inoffice nearly 26 months, President Kennedy held his 51st press conference…. an average of nearly 2 per month!
