Reagan's campaign in the 1980 presidential election stressed some of his fundamental principles: lower taxes to stimulate the economy, less government interference in people's lives, states' rights, and a strong national defense. In his campaign, Reagan quoted John F. Kennedy frequently in an effort to get the American people to accept, in particular, his tax policies. Kennedy himself took years of convincing from his bi-partisan cabinet that tax cuts would stimulate the economy during his term, yet did manage to implement his policy before his death in 1963.
