Government institutions have betrayed the trust of the American people for too long. Instead of serving a democracy that is of, by, and for the people, these organizations have been captured by the corporate greed of regulatory agencies—the agencies who look the other way because they are bankrolled by those they are supposed to regulate. It is no mystery why trust in government is at an all-time low.
 
Most Americans, including those working for big corporations and government agencies, are decent and upstanding citizens who are tired of the paralysis of a broken system. They are looking for a way out, a path toward a government that cares about people over profits. They are looking for America’s Path Back to Moral Leadership.
 
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. explains how his administration will build a government that serves the public, not the other way around. He discusses how to make government transparent, protect whistleblowers, and prosecute officials who abuse the public trust, and how to rein in the lobbyists and slam shut the revolving door between government agencies and lucrative positions in the companies they were supposed to regulate. To bring true moral leadership back to America, Kennedy makes clear that his administration will get the money out of politics, open up our institutions to real citizen involvement, and restore the lost integrity of our democracy.
