    The interview by CNN Host Erin Burnett of Independent Presidential Candidate Robert Kennedy was revealing on many fronts. Although Mr. Kennedy is a really good guy who is trying to make America a better place, in a lot of areas he is misguided and lacks wisdom which calls for the conclusion that he does not have the wherewithal and plan which should move the American people to elect him as President! Robert says Trump and Biden aren't going to solve the existential threats facing America; and he lists numerous ones his leading issue was the national debt crisis, the $34 trillion and growing debt, talking as if any human being can fix it. Robert don't blow smoke at the American people the only thing a good President can do is manage this devastating predicament for America that is not grow the national debt significantly higher than the projections already predict; the history of this problem was that before Trump's 2017 Tax Cut law America could use a grand bargain, equal tax raising and spending cuts, to fix the problem with this law the Republicans blew on paper a $1.5 trillion hole in America's budget over ten years and proved themselves untrustworthy to the Democrats in their commitment to control the debt and with the Pandemic since there was no trust on this spending issue Washington wasted trillions and using a term that Nancy Pelosi used in 2017 moved America closer to Economic Armageddon! Robert referenced chronic disease in our country as if any President could fix this problem, I like many people believe that chemical pollution has a lot to do with the cause, in any event the American people are going to need a lot of pharmaceuticals to respond to this crisis there is largely no way of getting around it!

    Robert mentions major problems in the country but often offers no solutions not even getting to whether a solution proposal is viable. Robert spotlights how major U.S. industries have seriously compromised some Federal Agencies; he mentions military contractors and the Pentagon and the Pharmaceutical industry and Congress and the Food and Drug Administration. Robert acts like the American people are in the dark on this corruption we aren't in the dark we just don't know how to stop it! The American people know how the American Military Complex manipulated Congress to replace the Black Hawk helicopter with a new helicopter patterned after the tilt rotor helicopter the Osprey that is a fragile helicopter and will be alarmingly prone to crash when used on landing zones under enemy fire and how there was a great design alternative that just needed a little more debugging but the Complex would have had to be patient about their contract orders which of course wasn't an option! Everyone knows how America pays more for pharmaceuticals than any developed country in the world because the Pharmaceutical Industry has enough members of Congress in their pocket due to all the campaign cash they throw around. Kennedy raises major problems with no solutions why should America elect a candidate that just offers rhetoric!

    Robert doesn't have perspective about many issues. He says Biden is a greater threat to Democracy than Trump and he offers Biden using the power of the Presidency to pressure Social Media Outlets to shut down criticism of the Covid vaccines as evidence. What Biden did was wrong and an abuse of power and legislation should be enacted to stop such Presidential abuse in the future but it wasn't a threat to our democratic form of government. It was clearly a deprivation of peoples right of free speech but it was a limited deprivation; no doubt it was a scandal scientific analysis is clear some, granted a very small number, of people had a negative reaction one being where it triggered their immune system to attack a person's nervous system another where it caused heart problems. As for the Secret Service issue I don't doubt that the Democrat powers to be aren't using their discretion to provide you that protection to pressure you to drop out but as for disregarding the law on this issue the media reports there is prescriptions in the law that mandate providing such protection but you haven't met the standard so the allegation that America's Democracy is being subverted here doesn't lie.

    Robert says he is the candidate that is going to get America out of these endless wars, he is acting so naive, foolish and like a simpleton. Just because the leader of America wants to be done with war doesn't mean America's enemies are done with war and won't bring war on us. The absolute unequivocal truth of the matter is that if America doesn't help Ukraine win this war against Russia by providing money and weapons Russia will conquer the entirety of Ukraine and after Putin rebuilds his army in ten to fifteen years he will try to conquer a Nato country in that region to build his Russian empire which means America will be in a Nato war against Russia because of treaty obligations; so why not give money now so we don't have to give more money plus American lives later! As for Iraq, if the Iraqi Shiite government wants American troops to leave we should comply one hundred percent we should respect their sovereignty. Everyone needs to remember though America's critical role in currently being in Iraq is being a block on ISIS in Iraq and especially in Syria reconstituting themself; today there is ten thousand plus Islamic State fighters in Syria in the camps guarded by the Kurds with America back-up, if this containment fails the world could again see an ISIS state in Syria and Iraq and maybe next time their growth won't be arrested!

    Robert isn't as wise as he should about a major weakness of his which is his propensity to buy into conspiracy theories. Robert may have been one hundred percent accurate in saying that the 2004 Presidential election was stolen from John Kerry but that view isn't on most Americans radar the 2000 election maybe but only God knows for sure who won that election the punch card voting records with their hanging chads were undecipherable; in any event Robert should avoid making claims or beliefs that can be labeled conspiracy theories. Robert also mentioned that he thinks there is a revolution going on in the country; that is a absolute misnomer and error there is widespread cynicism and disillusionment with America's political system and capitalism values because it hasn't been shown to work in a long-time but it is the case where people are at a loss on what to do this isn't like the 1960's where people had big causes whether it be Vietnam or Civil Rights. One final point Robert in responding to the concern that what will he say if he becomes the spoiler in the race that he spoiled Joe Biden's chances and cause Donald Trump to win; Mr. Kennedy's response that they are both extremely bad candidates so it doesn't make much of a difference! That is absolutely wrong Donald Trump is a thousand times worse than Joe Biden, Donald Trump doesn't really care about following a good conscience he doesn't care about following fundamental norms, at minimum to a large degree Donald Trump doesn't believe there is objective truth and objective goodness, these things make Donald Trump very very dangerous he is capable of anything. One compelling reason why Robert should get out of the race because he will throw it to Trump is because Biden is a wounded Democrat candidate and he very well not be able to fix the problems; for one Biden is going to have trouble with the Muslim vote because of what is happening in the Gaza strip and really the death and suffering of the Palestinians there is something beyond Biden's control, reports are Biden is going to lose a lot of the Black vote because Blacks are disillusioned with the Democrat party there loyalty hasn't improved their lives like many of them expect it should and Biden will likely lose a lot of the young voter vote for a multitude of reasons whether it be Gaza, student loans, Tik Tok and young people find it hard to identify with an octogenarian. The right answer when Erin Burnett asked Robert what he would be thinking if he woke up the day after the election and learned he was the spoiler for Trump, he should have said the guilt I would feel would be without measure and that I will never forgive myself for hurting the country this way!

    Robert Kennedy,Jr. is a progressive who makes noises about stuff like Covid vaccine which makes shallow people think he’s something different. He’s more honest than Joe Biden, but that’s like saying a thief is better than murderer. It’s not enough to get your vote if you think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

    I sincerely hope that those, such as I, who have resigned themselves to voting for Trump, will not be fooled. Kennedy is a more of the same Democrat. He might do something about the border, although you can’t bank on it. As for spending, taxing and regulating, he’s just one more progressive.

    Again, you're terrified RFK will take votes away from Biden so you have to attack him.

    I hear he is more likely to take votes from Trump than Biden. Personally, I'm just tired of voters failing to be objective about their choices based on partisanship. It's not a team sport or a war with factions, so stop treating it as such.
