Rest in peace, Jack Kemp. Jack Kemp was a great believer in freedom. He believed that the supply side needed to stimulate the economy. He believed that tax cuts would continue to stimulate the economy while tax increases took the growth out of our economy. His Empower America theme and organization helped to bring to debate the concept of personal empowerment helps create economic freedom. He was a strong Representative from upstate New York for nine terms, a Housing Secretary under President George H.W. Bush, a former candidate for President and a Vice Presidential nominee in 1996. He also was a great football player for the Chargers and the Bills. America's Conservative movement has lost a great friend today with the passing of Jack Kemp. His words, actions and thoughts will be greatly missed.
