By Jeffrey D. Sachs, Special to The Kennedy Beacon
Have never been more proud of mr. Kennedy than today, and thank you dr. Sachs for an outstanding article.
An inspiring speech!
RFK is the only candidate who gives the listener, the people, a sense of authenticity, and of spiritual depth and connection. He is wise, honorable and through CHD been working on behalf of the citizens of the USA for many years now. He has the courage to state his beliefs which do not align with the globalists narrative and to endure the abuse cast on him unwittingly by the public, even by some of his own family members. It takes a lot more courage to stand up to friends and family than to enemies and RFK is certainly doing that. I applaud his transparency and his unrelenting stance supporting the need for truth, open discussion and the importance of empathy and finding common ground. Thank you RFK. You are the breath of hope that we so need at this time.
How about a peace plan for Israel-Palestine along the lines of the pre-1967 borders? If I am following the news accurately, Xi, Putin and Erdogan have all recently endorsed the long-standing Arab Peace Plan. I personally do not want a cent of my tax dollars being spent on Israel's security if they are unwilling to roll back their genocidal and inhumane occupation. As we bring back the troops and embrace the reality of a multipolar world with international law, so our "ally" must roll back the settlements. Support for the Jewish people must mean welcome to Jewish citizens in many nations, not an outmoded and unjust settler-colonialism that corrupts and dehumanizes everything it touches.
As a physician who worked closely with the pharmaceutical industry,
RFK had me hooked even before he announced when, during a speech at Hillsdale College last March, he called Pharma a criminal enterprise. Anyone who was unaware or doubted it should have been made acutely aware of that truth the past few years.
DNC is panicking! Just changed my party affiliation. Not a Dem anymore! Want to see the DNC Crushed!!!
An historic speech full of grace and humanity.
My vote is for Bobby!❤️
Fantastic endorsement! Dr. Sachs: Why has the Democrat party embraced censorship, Big Pharma, Big Tech, and the Military Industrial Complex? How have Progressives in cities and elite universities like your alma mater become advocates for violence and terrorism?
Regardless of the outcome, Bobby's run will greatly improve American politics.
The 2-party system is not in the Constitution and it's strangled the process of getting candidates who haven't been bought by big corporate donors. Primary elections were supposed to get rid of the smoke-filled rooms where vested interests selected the most appealing candidate to do their bidding. See how that worked out!
If we had ranked-choice voting and if we had gotten rid of the Electoral College, RFK Jr would be a shoo-in. Even without those democracy-boosting changes, there's a real chance for representative government now.
Canada needs a JFK
Thank you RFK Jr for your wonderful speech and Declaration of Independence. I am declaring my Independence too. My vote is for you.
I admire Mr. Sachs enormously but this: "by election time, the Democrats are more likely to be urging Biden to withdraw from the race, on grounds of age and incompetence, in order to help RFK Jr. to beat Trump decisively at the polls" -- is a pipe dream. Democrat voters will support him, the Democratic party will try to destroy him and probably claim we supporters are domestic terrorists on par with the "MAGA extremists" they're already targeting.
Yay this is great!
RFK needs to reconsider his stance on Israel if he wants to truly be seen as a Peace candidate. Read what Chris Hedges says about the issue currently.
Thanks for this endorsement!
