From the Harvard Crimson, Wednesday, February 18, 1970:
"I'm an internationalist. I'd like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations."
Kerry wants "to almost eliminate CIA activity. The CIA is fighting its own war in Laos and nobody seems to care."
He also favors a negative income tax and keeping unemployment at a very low level, "even if it means selective economic controls."
Interesting, no? So apparently he's a socialist. For redistribution of wealth and economic controls. Lovely. I'll sure vote for this guy.
Oh, and lest ye say "but that was 30 years ago! Surely he has changed!" I ask you to check out his voting record in congress. He's to the left of Teddy "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy. Also, he voted for basically all of the authouritarian measures from Clinton on to Ashcroft. Glorious combination.
