“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance – that principle is contempt prior to investigation.”

– Herbert Spencer


I am writing to express my enthusiastic support for Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent candidate for President.

After reading Herbert Spencer’s quote, I took the time to educate myself over recent months. I listened to several RFK Jr. interviews hosted by both supporters and detractors, and I read the biography by Dick Russell, “The Real RFK Jr.: Trials of a Truth Warrior”.

Three words which sum up my lasting impression and take measure of the man are, “of good character.” I ask myself what character traits I want in the next President of the United States and what kind of values do I expect this person to uphold? 

I want a candidate who is for peace by ending forever wars where there are no victors. A candidate who is for a paradigm built on health and well-being, and who will cultivate forward-thinking solutions to the addiction epidemic. A candidate who supports labor and the right to bargain collectively, and who  will restore the middle class. A candidate who will tell Americans the truth, alongside a trustworthy government. A candidate who respects our fundamental civil liberties and will dismantle censorship. A candidate who is an environmentalist and will protect our lands. I want to support a candidate who has the intelligence, courage and integrity to heal the deep divide that has eroded the faith of our nation’s greatest asset, we, the people. 

On a recent cross-country drive toward Phoenix, I got teary-eyed listening to the candidate speak of his proposed policies and restoration of an emotionally depleted nation. A call for radical change from a system that has been captured by greed and power. I felt a rising well up within that had been dormant for years. I grappled for a word to define what I was feeling and realized my sense of hope had been ignited by RFK Jr.’s vision for our future.

Unlike the Republican and Democratic nominees, an independent must gather signatures to get on the ballot, and each state has its own complicated rules. The campaign will need to gather in excess of 43,000 petition signatures throughout Arizona. A critical time has come to declare independence to ensure there is a choice on the ballot for everyone.
