Top 10 Reasons Robert F Kennedy May Have Been The Best Presidential Candidate Ever
I Think Robert Francis Kennedy May Have Been The Best Presidential Cannidate Ever!
I really believe had Robert F Kennedy have lived America would not be in the mess it is in today. Because I truly believe Robert Kennedy cared about America and it's future. He was one of if not the last presidential candidate that did care about America and what would happen to it. The Presidential Candidates of today are far different than Robert F. Kennedy.
I watch the crowds at present day presidential events and the atmosphere and excitement is just not there. I've never seen any other presidential candidate hold a rally where people were excited like they were with Robert F Kennedy. Unfortunately in our time the political spin game started up and the B.S. started running rampant. Political parties have tried their best to create excitement but we end up with nuts like Sara Palin who can see Russia from Alaska. You know I see Americans scream for her and go crazy but have they ever checked out the real history of this mayor of Wasilla and Governor of Alaska. If you have then shame on you. Even the McCain people know they messed up. This woman should have never been pushed on the American people.She should not have been the vice presidential woman candidate. There were a lot of far more qualified female candidates. One day we will have a female presidential candidate and I hope it will be a female candidate that loves America and wants to restore America to greatness. Maybe she, whoever she is will restore the American dream.
But I'm not going to tell you Romney or Obama are the answer to America's problems either. They are far from what Robert Francis Kennedy was. And they really have no feeling for the people of America. No our present political candidates are far from the answer for what's wrong with America.
1. Robert F. Kennedy Was The Best Attorney General We Ever Had.
Do you know that most historians will tell you that quite arguably Robert F Kennedy was the greatest Attorney General Of The United States. If not then tell me who even comes close to the accomplishments of Bobby Kennedy. Who I'll tell you is no one. Robert Kennedy had a say in what happened to America during the Kennedy Administration. President Kennedy valued what his brother had to say and most of all Robert Kennedy cared about America. He cared about the future of America. What other U.S. Attorney General ever did. Not one. All they cared about was their own political future.
2. His Fight Against Jimmy Hoffa Is The Stuff Legends Are Made Of.
Hoffa and the people around him may have been behind Sirhan Sirhan. Over the years Sirhan Sirhan who remains imprisoned in the California Penal System has continued to receive money that can be traced back to the teamster union. It is for sure that Jimmy Hoffa was not upset about the assassination of Robert F Kennedy. No he was in fact happy that the man who had destroyed him was now dead. He said that the man who had destroyed him got what he deserved. It's interesting that Jimmy Hoffa vanished and no one knows where he is. At least no one that is talking.
3. Robert Kennedy Was A Good And Decent Family Man
He was always by the side of his brother the President. And he loved his children and wife. There have been repeated attempts to tarnish or say that he had affairs with other women including his rumored affair with Marilyn Monroe but none of it has ever been proven. It was attempts by people some politically motivated to assassinate his career and memory. Shame on those of you who tried it. Watch one video of him playing with his kids. Robert Kennedy was truly one of if not the last great presidential candidates we ever had.
4. Robert F. Kennedy Had Humility, Wisdom And Caring For His Fellow American.
It's really sad that this man did not go on to be President of the United States. America would be a far different country than it is today. The Kennedy's cared about their fellow Americans. They care about the poor, the hungry, and the destitute. If Bobby Kennedy had become President of the United States it would be a far different country than it is today.
5. Robert Kennedy Helped Save The United States From Nuclear War.
Robert Kennedy was the voice of reason his brother needed during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Most of President Kennedy's advisers wanted to attack Cuba. We now know that if they had that much of the United States would have been struck by nuclear weapons. The United States would not be here as we know it today. It's more likely than not that the United States would have been destroyed. At the least possibly millions of Americans would have lost their lives. Washington D.C. would have likely been vaporized. And we know now that had we have invaded Cuba that battlefield nuclear weapons would have been used against our troops invading Cuba. Hundreds of thousands if not millions of people would have died. And you can second guess them all you want but the Kennedy brothers saved America from certain nuclear attack.
6. Robert Kennedy Was A Great Diplomat For The United States.
Most people today can't even tell you what the Berlin crisis of 1961 was about. Robert Kennedy used an important back channel with Soviet spy, Georgi Bolshakov to keep communication flowing between the United States and the Soviet Union. Had it not been for Robert Kennedy again the United States could have started a nuclear weapons exchange with the Soviet Union. Do you know that Bobby Kennedy was one of the first political figures to speak out against what was going on in South Africa at that time. He went on to give a speech at Cape Town South Africa that many people believe was most likely the best speech he was to ever give. Bobby Kennedy was strongly anti racist. But the average American today doesn't know most of these things about Robert F Kennedy who could have quite possibly have been the greatest US President that ever lived.
7. Robert Kennedy Was Strongly Anti War And Wanted To End The Political War In Vietnam.
When President Kennedy was killed in Dallas he was along with brother Bobby Kennedy planning to with draw our troops from Vietnam and end the war in Vietnam. After President Kennedy was killed the war in Vietnam was escalated and the Generals and companies selling war materials had their war. And what a horrific cost the Vietnam war was. Billions of dollars was spent and almost 60,000 Americans lost their lives. And at what cost was this. The Vietnam war didn't help one thing. The only thing it did was almost destroy America and it ran President Lyndon Johnson from office.
8. Robert Kennedy Worked As A U.S. Senator From New York In Poor Neglected Areas.
It is clear that if you look at what Senator Robert Kennedy did as the Senator from New York that he cared about the poor, the neglected and the Hungry. In today's world we see late night TV commercials about the hungry of Africa but you don't see them talking about the hungry of America. But Robert Kennedy did care. He was elected a US Senator in New York and he tried to make a difference. One of the other reasons Robert Kennedy left his job as the U.S. Attorney General was that he suspected that Hoover and President Johnson may have been involved in the death of his brother President Kennedy. If Robert Kennedy had been elected President Of The United States he may well have had FBI Director Hoover and President Johnson prosecuted for their part in the death of his brother. I truly believe that their was not only a conspiracy that caused the death of President Kennedy but that the conspiracy may also have involved the assassination of U.S. Presidential Candidate Robert Kennedy.
9. Robert Kennedy Stopped The Riots After The Assassination Of Martin Luther King Jr.
Again this is a fact that most American's don't know about. He was due to speak that night anyway but he went out and delivered one of the best speeches ever asking for reason. The night after the death of Martin Luther King Jr. riots broke out in 60 American cities but not in Indianapolis. No there it was the voice of Robert Kennedy and his voice of reason speech that stopped what would have been a horrible night of rioting and terror their in Indianapolis. But the average American knows nothing of Robert Kennedy's speech that night and why their was no riot in Indianapolis that night.
10. Robert Kennedy Probably Helped The Civil Rights Movement More Than Any Other Politician.
Robert F Kennedy led a heroic fight for the civil riots movement. With out the actions of Robert Kennedy the civil riots movement might have been put on hold for a number of years. Robert Kennedy knew that much false information was being put out by then FBI Director Hoover. Had Robert Kennedy have been elected President of the United States he would have fired Hoover. And the political climate of present day America would be much different than today.
What If Robert F Kennedy Had Been Elected President Of The United States.
I've sat here this evening as I wrote this Hub Page on Robert F Kennedy and wondered what would America be like tonight if Robert Kennedy would have lived and been elected President Of The United States. I have to think that it would be a much better country than it is tonight. We would have probably never have had to deal with Richard Nixon. Most of the men who were killed in Vietnam would be alive today.
Stop The Political Spin Game.
And we probably would not have the political spin game being played that is played in America today. Quite possibly we would not have had to deal with Regan who should never have been President. I truly believe that America would be a far different but better country than it is today.
Forget Political Spin. Let's Stand Up For America.
What do you think? What do you think would be different about America today? I really would like to hear what you think. Just no spin game please. Keep it real and don't spin the truth. We don't need more political spin. We need people who are willing to stand up for America. And to hell with political spin.
