JFK Would Still Be Alive
President John F. Kennedy would undoubtedly have served a second term and retired to a long post-presidential career had it not been for the murderous Marines.
Lee Harvey Oswald, JFK’s assassin, was a marksman trained by the Corp.
Oswald enlisted in the Marines in 1956 and served in the Marine Air Control Squadron in Japan.
The Marine Corps also facilitated his dabbling in learning Russian so that he could later attempt to defect to the Soviet Union.

Of course, the list goes on.
If this all sounds utterly ridiculous, it is exactly the logic used by billionaire loudmouth and republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as he referred to Latinos in the United States.
Pick a few cases and argue from the specific to broad statements about an entire class.
Trump proves that moving piles of dirt around and buying buildings may not be a great training ground for the presidency.
His crude and absurd comments gave him a bump in the republican line-up showing that the GOP is the modern day “Know Nothing” Party.
New Jersey governor Chris Christie, another GOP presidential hopeful and loudmouth said, “I like Donald. He’s a good guy…”
Nice to know.
