Oswald did not act alone

Not a snowball's chance in hell that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.  The physical
evidence doesn't click on any level.  Then there are the conscious and deliberate lies
about Jack Ruby just being a patriotic businessman, etc.

The people I knew in and around the Fair Play for Cuba Committee at the time LHO was
hanging around said that he simply stank of "informant".  If you saw that interview
LHO about "Marxism", you might remember his reactions (like a deer in the headlights)
before gushing a lot of the CIA factbook stuff.

The JFK/LBJ break was real and marked the transition in regional power bases.
Democratic interest gave way with the Civil War to what became the Midwestern
Social Dawinists.  At the turn of the century with the ascendancy of Teddy Roosevelt of
NY, with a further shift in mass preferences to the Democrats when his cousin FDR came
in.  The real shift of power from the old northeast came when LBJ came in.  Not
the unelected accident of Gerald Ford, the presidents since 1963 have been from,
respectively: Texas, California, Georgia, California, Texas, Arkansas, and Texas.
That's a regional shift of power to "the Sun Belt" with petrochemicals, defense, etc.

That an assassination marked this transition wouldn't surprise anybody if we were
at another country in another century.  What makes anybody think the US would behave
