Presidential Candidate RFK Jr. Pivots From Democrat Party To Independent

Amidst much conjecture and theory over the last week, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. broke his silence today in Philadelphia. Addressing a large crowd, and an even wider base tuning in across streaming platforms, RFK, Jr announced he was leaving the Democrat big for president in the dust to run as an independent.

When Kennedy first launched his bid for office going up against President Joe Biden, skepticism filled the air. Could a member of the Kennedy dynasty who made his mark going up against corporate corruption take the White House? The reception to Kennedy’s positions has surprised many pundits in recent months as he has taken America and the alt media by storm.

The question of whether Kennedy can win is highly debated. Part of the problem is that much of his base stems from the republican party, not the Democrats. Kennedy implied he was taking more votes from the republican base than from democrat voters — a statement that left a sour taste in the mouths of many conservatives.

Still, the numbers seem to show Kennedy could be a contender against Biden, but not necessarily against Trump.

Biden’s allies continue to write Kennedy off as an anti-vaxxer coasting on his dynastic name, but the polls paint a different picture.

Some Americans love the passion behind Kennedy’s words, but many people on both sides of the aisle are questioning whether his run for office will be a spoiler.

Kennedy’s decision follows months of conflict with the Biden Administration over its refusal to grant him US Secret Service protection. In more recent weeks, Kennedy accused the Democratic National Committee of rigging the democratic primary —- a potential sign they may actually see Kennedy as a threat.

The DNC’s refusal to host debates between Biden and his challengers has faced criticism from many — not just Kennedy. Their frustration isn’t unfounded on the heels of the DNC’s intention to punt the first primary to South Carolina — a favorable state for Biden — instead of adhering to tradition and New Hampshire’s state law that they come first in the nation.

Kennedy stepped down as President of Children’s Health Defense to make a bid for the White House, but many conservatives and insiders in the vaccine risk awareness circle have suggested he would eventually drop the democrat ticket and run for third party.

Just last month, Joseph Mercola posted a poll on X — the platform formerly known as Twitter — asking if the public thought Kennedy should exit the democrat party. The response was telling.

In Kennedy’s Philadelphia address, he left hopeful Americans with these words:

“I am here to declare myself as an independent candidate for President of the United States. And that’s not all. I am here to join all of you to make a new Declaration of Independence for our entire nation.”

He asserted, “People suspect that the divisions are deliberately orchestrated and that getting us to hate each other is part of the scam. And they’re fed up with being fooled, and they are ready to take back their power.”

He may be right. But will the American people choose him to lead them into the revolution? That remains to be seen.
