Don’t count this guy out for either the Democratic nomination or the 2024 presidential election. From Ilana Mercer at unz.com:
It is not capitalism that has failed, but crony capitalism ~Robert F. Kennedy Jr
The Constitution was built for hard times. It is the heart and soul of our country ~RFK, Jr
THE GULF BETWEEN principles and practice, doxa and praxis, is eternal—all the more so when it comes to the politician.
When you think of a GOP candidate, in particular, you think of neither creed nor action, but, rather, of a list of talking points and policy positions to the exclusion of bedrock principles.
“God, groceries and gas” was how one gaseous hack smugly summed up what Americans need, to Sean Hannity of the near-defunct [chuckle] Fox News channel. That, and promises seldom kept.
Aside from a native intelligence, and to distinguish from his rotten party’s political plank—Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., conversely, does articulate a creed that respects liberty. Whether he will act on this commendable worldview once in office is unknown.
As it emerged from the RFK, Jr., announcement for president, his worldview departs from that of the progressive Democrat Party’s, which he has decried as “the party of fear, war and censorship… neocons with woke bobble-heads.”
RFK, Jr’s philosophy of liberty, moreover, appears wedded to reality. He doesn’t jabber GOP-style about a return to small government and the passing of a balanced budget amendment.
Such totem Republican “small-government” words are as good as Orwellian News Speak in concealing the truth, as they are dumbly and dangerously unmoored from reality, and thus meaningless, mere reductive talking points.
Ape Lincoln? The original imperial executive out to preserve the district of cesspool as an autonomous zone who locked up reporters, deported dissidents and tacked on ending slavery after the fact in order to justify the carnage of the second American Revolution or civil war.
Hat tip to father for setting me straight.
Not fooled by RFK Jr. either.
