A Letter to the Legacy of a Legend: President John F. Kennedy
I love people with everything I am worth. As strange as this might sound, I also fear them with a passion. As you know from your short tenure here, it is often people who prove to be the downfall of noble others.
Although I was born eleven years after your assassination, my study and research into American history has shown me I am surrounded by sheep. This particular breed has a warped hankering for conspiracies.
No more glaring example of this exists than your own story. Although Lee Harvey Oswald is accused of slaying you, the perpetrators of this bold act of treason were, in fact, powerful American entities: huge corporations, the massive military complex, members of the Russian government, even the Mafia. Take your pick!
You were the youngest President to assume the White House. Before and after your election, we were exposed to a litany of corrupt American Presidents. You, with your unshakable ethical underpinnings, were an anomaly. I believe whole-heartedly in destiny and fate. I believe you were brought into this topsy-turvy world to open the collective eyes of Americans.
I applaud your noble quest to restore morality to the White House, although it was a hopeless battle from the start. The historic actions that took place during your administration and your unfortunate assassination by power-hungry, modern-day cowboys made us average Americans take note. These cowboys hired gunmen to ambush you from a distance, waiting for the opportune moment to wreak havoc upon our nation. This single action made us notice the corrupt powers hovering � still hovering � over American society.
Your choice to go against the grain instead of following the corrupt flow of history sealed your fate with certain powerful Americans. These men are hidden within the corrupt bowels of secret societies � the very secret societies you boldly denounced. Things have gotten completely out of hand since your death, for these secret societies are running amok within our government. Corruption has become such an epidemic that, for the first time, two politicians (Democratic Senator John F. Kerry and Republican President George W. Bush), who boldly admit their affiliations with the secret society known as the Skull and Bones, went head-to-head in the 2004 Presidential election.
In this election, American votes weren't worth the ballots upon which they were recorded. Both candidates had, and still have, a hidden agenda. Though George W. Bush (a corporation disguised as a human being) won a questionable re-election, society alone elected this man, putting the rule of the South back on the map and allowing the Skull and Bones to pursue its larger objectives.
Mr. President, this describes an ingeniously orchestrated coup d'etat � one more sinister than that surrounding your death. More sinister it is, because it was not a design meant to publicly shock and awe a nation or the world, as in your case. It was a design so covertly cunning that absolutely no one was the wiser � not even our nation's most recognized conspiracy theorists.
In the 2000 race for the White House, Vice President Albert Gore went up against Republican candidate George W. Bush. Mr. President, the chain of events surrounding this particular race were also a strategic coup d'etat. In this election, Americans by the thousands � African Americans, European Americans, Hispanic Americans � were disenfranchised. These voters were predominantly of the middle class, and because of that, they were treated like shit.
In the weeks following the election, these disenfranchised Americans, Americans abroad, and the international community witnessed a bold display of governmental corruption playing itself out in plain view as thousands upon thousands of votes were literally trashed.
This in a country that leads an ongoing campaign for worldwide democracy! The situation was so convoluted in America that the popular vote was ignored and the Electoral College votes were partly the deciding factor. In the end, cloaked Skull and Bones members of the Supreme Court settled this election. And wouldn't you know it, this Supreme Court was � and still is � manned by a body of judges who were put in place by Republican candidate George W. Bush's father, George H. W. Bush. That year, this farce known as the American democratic process showed its true colors for the world to see, as an American president was literally selected, not elected.
But you're still a force to be reckoned with, Mr. Kennedy. Although all of America knew of your sporadic extramarital affairs, they also realize no one is perfect. People act as if, just because you were married and held the title of America's Commander in Chief, they expected you to morph into some sort of drone incapable of recognizing a nice piece of ass when you saw one. Now, I'm not implying that I condone your actions, Mr. President, but then again, who am I in this world to judge you, especially when those actions had no bearing on your extraordinary accomplishments?
Your brother Bobby did everything he could to protect you. After your death, he woke up. Fully recognizing why you chose to seek the Presidency, he took the weight of your objectives upon himself. And he, too, was killed. You and Bobby died as free men � free from the corruption that runs rampant in our government this day. The word freedom was strategically filtered into American minds as a platform to allow big government to control the masses.
Though the story I have to tell will shed new light on your death, I fear it will eventually end up collecting dust. I fear it will be just another book in a long line of books concerning your life and death. Alas, had you lived, I fear your struggle might have been in vain, because Americans are complacent. Many of us choose not to see or acknowledge the evil taking place in our country. In addition, many of us are afraid to speak out. It's much more convenient for these lazy, scared Americans to ride the wave rather than go against the flow.
Mr. President, in closing, I pray you rest in peace, though I realize it has to be one hell of a struggle for you, knowing the mystery that surrounds your slaying is still unsolved. Yet know that many Americans envy you in a big way. Your struggles are over, while our trials continue to rain down upon us. This will continue until destiny and fate deliver another like you � one who is ready, willing, and able to stand tall for average America.
