Keeping Up With the Kennedys

One of the most impressive things about the grassroots movement to draft Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is that it is comprised of some truly amazing people (as is so often evidenced by the insightful comments left on our blog). You’re well-educated. You’re literate. You’re politically passionate. You’re devoted to justice for all. You know your history. And you love the Kennedys.

Many of you have been Kennedy supporters all your lives. Some of you may be old enough to remember when young Jack Kennedy was a Senator! You might recall when John-John was born. Maybe you responded to JFK’s inaugural call of “ask not what your country can do for you,” and entered public service to do what you could for your country.

You remember the Cuban Missle Crisis firsthand and lived to tell the tale to your grandchildren. You’ll never forget that day in Dallas. Or Los Angeles five years later.

Through the years, you’ve stayed politically active and fully engaged in your duties as a citizen. Maybe your inspiration in part comes from a sense of helping to complete important work that Jack and Bobby started nearly 50 years ago. You’re still committed to those ideals of fairness, justice, and peace.

You also most likely have kept up with the Kennedys, staying informed on news and maybe even a bit of irrisistible gossip now and then. In more recent years, the internet has made it possible to do research, engage in political activism, and network with other like-minded individuals all from the comfort of home. It has also created communities and forums where Kennedy fans gather to share stories, ideas, and information.

We try to keep this website focused exclusively on Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and the grassroots movement to draft him in 2008, although we do run related historical features periodically. We don’t usually cover the latest political news of the day unless RFK Jr. is a part of the story. Our mission is to bring you information about Mr. Kennedy’s life, his work, his stand on the issues, and hopefully convince you that he is the best possible choice we could make for the next President of the United States.

So for “all the news that doesn’t fit” the theme of our website, we’ve added a couple of new features and blogroll links we think you’ll enjoy.

You can now read our online journal at Democratic Underground. Here you can not only get more information on RFK Jr. and other Kennedys currently serving in government, you can also join the discussion forums and engage in spirited debates on the hottest political topics of the day. Want to talk about the 2008 race? The candidates? The issues? The war? Want to rant about George Bush? This is the place for you.

You can also read our posts on the Kennedy Family Forums, a great place to find news and information about all of the Kennedys, and to interact with others who share your interests. Chances are you’ll always learn some fascinating new tidbit here you didn’t know before! (Is it really true that Jackie O. wouldn’t allow Caroline to have that piece of pie after dinner because she worried Caroline was getting too fat?)

Anyway, happy reading. See you in cyberspace.

One response to “Keeping Up With the Kennedys

  1. It’s been a while since I visited here. Is there any movement from RFK yet? I have a hunch that if/when he does announce; it will be very dramatic and at a popular event. Right now, this election COULD BE HIS. None of the candidates of either party are doing well! Scandal all over the place, recent scandal pertaining to campaign ethics.

    I am also wondering if some “real time” rallys would be possible. I wish somebody had organized at Univ. of IA; gotten folks there attending his speech to wave banners, sing, (we need a campaign song like Jesus Jones “Right Here Right Now”.) Folks giving Bobby A HUGE ROARING, THUNDEROUS, standing ovation and having that sque into a 15 min. non-stop demonstration of love and enthusiam for our man.

    Perhaps now that school has started, the list owner or another could contact various Young Democrat Clubs at our countries Universities. Have them organize their students for Bobby’s speech. We do need to back him at all his upcoming speeches. Time to motivate our man to ACTION! Now is the hour.
