      I love big ideas, so this was fun to read. My opinion here is solidly split though - I'm strong positive on ramped up (common sense) immigration, and strong negative on government-sponsored incentives to increase the size of families. Regardless, it's a coherent, interesting argument.

      I was raised in the Clinton years, so I cant even remotely imagine hearing a US president speak the way that JFK spoke.

      These easy things feel hard only because we've become accustomed to a political culture that can barely do anything at all.

      Exactly.
