But other than running for lifetime public office how have any Kennedy's helped America as much as Gates,Dell, Carnegie, and on and on.
3 of the 4 Kennedy brothers didn't have much of a lifetime. 2 of them war heros. Joe and Jack Kennedy both served in WWII, the former killed in action, the later narrowly survived. We obviously know how Jack and Bobby met their demise. Going into the politics and accomplishments of the 3 brothers that were politicians is rather pointless, considering we won't agree on anything. My point is not to compare them to the business giants of the 19th and 20th century, but to push back on the idea they have done nothing with their wealth. The Kennedy's didn't have to serve, they obviously didn't need to pay check.
