Robert F. Kennedy

Robert Francis Kennedy would almost certainly have been president if his violent death hadn’t intervened. He was brave, claims one biographer, “precisely because he was fearful and self-doubting.”

This probing and perceptive biography reassesses the remarkable and tragic life of the third Kennedy son, the boy Joe Sr. called the “runt.”

Featuring extensive interviews with family members, friends, journalists, Washington insiders, and civil rights activists, the film chronicles the pivotal role RFK played in many of the major events of the 1960s — the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil rights movement, the war in Vietnam.

    I’m 22 years old, these events probably mean nothing to most of my generation.. But what a tragic, tragic story. Truly brought tears to my eyes.

    It has to be obvious by now to most Americans that there is a power controlling the American system that has nothing to do with freedom. The scripture states antichrist will enter peacefully even into the fattest states. I have live within this duplicitous system all my life. I love freedom and once my country to, back in 1965. But, viewing the truth of the assignations and 911, with the new legalization’s that overrule all God given rights, plus the concentration camps give more understanding of the financial irresponsibility and corruption and the warlike recklessness of the military and the banks. I have to agree with Alex Jones, it feels like we are in the old Soviet Union or Nazi Germany. It really galls me when Obama and Bush stand up and lie to the face of all Americans. Condemning all the honest people for not believing their lies. Osama and Oswald are innocent of the crimes they were charged with. There is enough information on the web to prove this to anyone who cares about real freedom.

    I was born after the lives and deaths of both Kennedy brothers, I witnessed Dr. King’s impact on the world only as a mythological figure long since drifted into the ether. I have never seen, felt or tasted the hope that Camelot seemed to have surrounded everyone in that time, yet I, I sensed something in the Presidential campaign of 2008 that I thought might have been similar. Four years later my disappointment has long since become cold indifference and I prepare my children to enter a world that will work each day to cut down their compassion and sympathy for those less fortunate just as violently as these two brothers.

    You’d think that after Abraham Lincoln was assasinated, the USA would have legislated some form of “Gun Control” to prevent this form of Political Assasanation from happening again, which unfortunately, has happened on several occasions throughout American History. I’m fortunate to live to the north in Canada and not one of our political leaders has ever been assasinated in the history of our country. I was touring Scottland a few years ago and a stranger asked me, with my foreign english accent, if I was American ? I said,” No. I’m a Canadian”, upon which she said,”Oh that’s good, I like Canadians, much better than Americans”. I then asked her if she could tell me the big difference between Americans and Canadians and she repied that she couldn’t. I then told her that Canadians didn’t have the “Right to Bear Arms” so most of the time, strangers have nothing to fear from a Canadian, unless…You’re playing hockey against us, in which case…be very afraid!

    If any American citizen with a modicum of intelligence were to critically read, or re-read, their oft quoted, hallowed, Constitution – Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms as drafted in the 18th Century in 1791:

    ‘A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’

    Having critically read, or re-read, Amendment 2, an individual with more than 1 brain cell will surely realise that the amendment to the United States Constitution was drafted at a point in their long past history, over 200 years past, when, for the survival of the fledgling republic, the populace having a right to bear arms was a necessity.

    We are now in the 21st Century. Need I say more?
