Abstract:

Excerpts from a Kennedy-Nixon debate present Kennedy's belief that America "can do better." Kennedy believes the U.S. is a great and powerful country, but that it could be greater and more powerful. He is not satisfied with current steel production, the low economic growth rate, or the fact that the U.S. has over 9 billion dollars of food, some of it rotting, even though there is a hungry world and every month four million Americans wait for a government food package that averages five cents a day per individual. He is not satisfied when the Soviet Union turns out twice as many scientists and engineers as the U.S., when many teachers are underpaid, when children go to school in part-time shifts. He is not satisfied until every American enjoys his full constitutional rights. He compares a Negro baby's chances for future success with those of a white baby. Contrary to what some say, Kennedy does not want to turn everything over to the government; he wants the individuals to meet their responsibilities, and the states to meet theirs, but there is also a national responsibility. Those who feel the status quo is satisfactory should vote for Nixon. "The question before us all ... is can freedom, in the next generation, conquer, or are the communists going to be successful? ... If we meet our responsibilities, I think freedom will conquer ... If we fail to move ahead ... to develop sufficient military and economic and social.

Strength here in this country, then I think the tide could begin to run against us ... I want [historians ten years from now] to say these were the years when the ... United States started to move again ... Only you can decide what you want, what you want this country to be, what you want to do with the future." "Vote for new American leadership; the country needs it, the world needs it. John Kennedy for president"--Voice over. Includes several unflattering cut-in shots of Nixon listening to Kennedy.
