    A great person can inspire others to be the greatest country in the world. Not some one that can cause chose. I have my own conspiracy theory. So as long the files remain secret, the conspiracy of the list of people involved will grow.

    The tragedy of JFK's assassination haunts us today because some very vocal and misguided people cannot come to grips with the facts.

    John Kennedy was shot and killed by a young man suffering from paranoid disillusionment brought about by the disappointment he experience during his stay in Soviet Russia. Lee Harvey Oswald was a devout Communist, self-educated and self-indoctrinated from an early age, to faithfully believe the socialist dream. His experiences in Russia splintered his mind, creating a crisis of faith and severe depression. Needing an outlet to counter this crushing blow he began imagining the existence of a plot to discredit and destroy communism...thus the descent into paranoia. He alone hatched and executed the plot to kill the leader of his imagined cabal against Communism. Kennedy's assassination - in Oswald's fevered mind - would be a death blow to the cabal.

    Lee Harvey Oswald would have tried to kill Nixon if he had won the election in 1960. The events of Dec. 22, 1963 had nothing to do with Kennedy, his past or his future. It was the violent act of a sick mind...something we're seeing more often and finally coming to grips with.
