Where He Stands

This page contains external links to articles written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., information on his books, radio show, and speeches, as well as a few select interviews with him.

While this is hardly to be considered a campaign “platform,” we feel it is important for potential voters and supporters to be informed where RFK Jr. stands on some of the important issues facing us all.

Words on the page, however eloquent, are no substitute for hearing him express his views verbally. As voters, we put a lot of stock in being able to look into the eyes of a potential candidate and judge his sincerity for ourselves. So if you have the opportunity to see Bobby at one of his many speaking engagements across the country, don’t miss the chance to experience his energy in person. He’s an electrifying public speaker!

We also encourage you to check out his weekly radio show, “Ring of Fire,” on Air America. If you don’t have a local affiliate station in your area, you can listen to archived programs at Ring of Fire Radio’s website.

Many of Bobby’s interviews and speeches are available on our blog and also at GoLeft.tv.

We hope that this resource helps to give you a better idea about the man himself and the causes he is most passionately dedicated to.

  1. Bobby,

    Please run.

    Thank you for your endorsement of Hillary Clinton!
    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will be the next leader of the Democratic Party! He and his sister Kathleen are the most gifted and capable for the future of the USA!
    Go Bobby, Go Kathleen!!!

    Bobby Jr. is a walking contradiction:

    He calls himself a Democrat but he’s pro-life.
    He calls himself an enviromental activist but he has 6 children (overpopulation!) and supports wind power, but doesn’t have it on any of his properties. He talks about the poor and impoverished but charges $600 an hour for his legal services. He considers himself an animal lover but proudly displays their pelts and skulls in his home.

    According to the same article where he admits to being pro-life, he says he attends mass daily not because he’s holy but because he needs a lot of help to do the right thing every day. I applaud his honesty, but weakness and not practicing what you preach, doesn’t make for a good president.

    You may also wish to consider that it’s not just his drug use (who cares/long time ago) that may be behind his reluctance to run. Perhaps there is another skeleton in the closet – another indiscretion. I don’t care really, but he’s not his father. Conflicted and complicated like him, yes, but he needs to reconcile his religious and environmental beliefs.

    • Jennifer: Obviously U don’t care to see RFK, Jr.; maximize his talents and run for public office. You are entitled to your opinion and should be allowed to post it, here or other public venues. That being said, I found your points to be very trivial & nit-picky. This is a passionate man who puts an enormous amt. of work & energy into everything he supports. A very, very hard worker. He is one who certainly deserves a “truth to power” medal. I don’t care if he wants to put hunting trophys on his walls.

      Bobby’s reasons for attending church could only be spoken by a very spiritual man who honors a supreme being. “weakness, not practicing what you preach”? Where do you get that! Jennifer, you have an inner vocabulary and perception of life and politics, that I don’t subscribe to. I doubt if many of his supporters here, agree with your judgments. All we
      need do is look at the many immature people serving in Congress and Oval Office. Right now, I have learned of one govt. official (no, it’s not Obama); a household name who is engaging in conduct that compromises our homeland security. This person belongs in prison, not govt. of USA.
      I don’t think you will find many candidates, if any, who fulfill your standards. Furthermore, there are many Pro-Life Catholics in Democratic party. Are you stating that faithful Catholics do not belong in Democratic party?? I would love to see some of them reply to you, about switching parties, for religious reasons alone, As for RFK, Jr.’s legal fees, he has done lots of voluntary work for no cost.

      I wish you luck finding a suitable candidate to support. I would love to know who that person is, it is probably somebody I would never support.

    Hi, interesting post. I have been wondering about this topic,so thanks for posting. I’ll probably be coming back to your blog. Keep up great writing

    I do not know if he should run or not, that is his decision to make, and I don’t think it’s right to pressure him.
    I’m sure that if he did run and win the presidency, he’d be one of those presidents that history would see as phenomenal and a real force for good.
    That said, the example of his uncle, Senator Ted Kennedy, who recently passed away, shows us that you can do much good in the world, politically, if you are a Kennedy, and you do not have to occupy the Oval Office to do so.
    There is much corruption in high places. I don’t think it’s always possible to fight this corruption from within it, and I don’t think , even if it is possible, that one can devote energy and time to fighting corruption and also run the country with as much vigor, energy, intensity and skill as would be required.
    I’m sure that Robert F. Kennedy jr., if he ever won the presidency, would not want to fall short in any way, not through his own failures, but through the failures of the system itself.
    Also, and I cannot help this, I worry about all the lunatics in this world. This world is getting only more violent. Two Kennedy men have already been taken by the bullets of the assassinators. It would be a tragedy of epic proportions, were this to happen again. It’s also just not fair. They’ve already given enough to this country. No one should have to pay for the privilege to serve as president with his or her life.
    I’m not saying that an attempt on Robert F. Kennedy jr’s life would definitely happen, but it is a real possibility that must be considered.
    I think he wants to be with his family, as well as help our world. I think he is doing these two things with admirable drive and skill. Therefore, if he never runs for president, it will not matter – he has already served this country, and, God willing, will continue to do so, for many many many more years to come, under he is very old. We are the better for it, whether or not he should ever run for, and be elected to the presidency.
