comment What is the rhetorical strategy called when the author sets up an “us vs them” situation?
False Dichotomy is different from what the questioner has in mind. Kennedy is not arguing that there are only two sides people can choose. He is subtly manipulating the audience's emotion to gain support.

comment Difference between “theorem” and “theory”
Your quote is quite right, but the examples are not. Pythagorean theorem is a theorem because it can be deductively proven from the axioms of Euclidean geometry. Testing on real triangles is empirical and inductive on the contrary.
