Presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy conducted a campaign gathering in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he formally declared his candidacy as an Independent.
“I’m here today to declare myself an Independent candidate for President of the United States. We declare independence from the corporations that have hijacked our government. And we declare independence from Wall Street, from Big Tech, from Big Pharma, from Big AG, from the military contractors and their lobbyists. And we declare independence from the mercenary media that is here to fortify all of the corporate orthodoxies from their advertisers and to urge us to hate our neighbors and to fear our friends. And we declare independence from the cynical elites who betray our hope and who amplify our divisions.”

Shortly after his announcement, the audience erupted in excitement, breaking into cheers and chants.
The campaign event hosted by RFK Jr. drew a significant number of attendees.
Throughout his speech, Kennedy urged Americans to unite in order to overcome the influence of a corrupt elite that has taken control of the U.S. government. At a certain juncture, he mentioned that he drew inspiration from the only other president who did not belong to a political party, which was George Washington.
Kennedy continued, “In his farewell address Washington issued a waring about the disastrous potential of party politics. Inevitably he said political parties will be taking over by a cunning ambitious unprincipled minority who will serve their interests of the party instead of the interest of the nation.”
RFK Jr. proceeded and conveyed that Washington’s foresight has been proven correct, and as President, his intention is to return authority to the citizens of the United States.
