It is between two kinds of deficits: a chronic deficit of inertia, as the unwanted result of inadequate revenues and a restricted economy; or a temporary deficit of transition, resulting from a tax cut designed to boost the economy, increase tax revenues, and achieve - and I believe this can be done - a budget surplus. The first type of deficit is a sign of waste and weakness; the second reflects an investment in the future. John F Kennedy

I believe the American people are more concerned with a man's views and abilities than with the church to which he belongs.
