Vivek Ramaswamy, the 2024 Republican presidential nominee who is demonstrably anti-woke, was in the news again on Friday. And unlike other presidential candidates when the 37-year old multi-billionaire entrepreneur made news, it was good news – for the Republican Party – assuming that the GOP paid attention.
Ramaswamy, as I mentioned in my Wednesday article, This Beat-Down’s for You, Bud – Vivek Ramaswamy Blazes Dylan Mulvaney’s Madness and the ‘Gender Insanity Cult,’ is already turning some heads.
Ramaswamy is a brilliant speaker, but his ability to articulate issues clearly and effectively has garnered national attention. He’s also not afraid to express what he believes, and doesn’t care about the snide critics on the left.
Vivek Ramaswamy is too intelligent for Republicans to ignore.
Ramaswamy’s campaign, as reported by Breitbart Friday, shared with the media his 25-point “America First 2.0” platform, which can also be found on Ramaswamy’s official campaign website. The policy points, which are bold from the start, are exactly what America requires to break the destructive cycle created by Joe Biden’s radical policies over the past 15 months.
Ramaswamy’s 25-point Plan is divided into five categories: Revive American National Identity; Unleash American Economy: Achieve >5% Growth in GDP; Declare Independence from Communist China; Dismantle Management Bureaucracy and End Weaponization of Financial Markets & Government.
The most striking among them:
One — Renew American National Identity
Secure our southern border using military forces, including drones
Reverse executive order 11246 of Lyndon Johnson to end affirmative action
Protect American Children: Ban addictive social media for children under 16 years old & “care” of gender confusion for minors
End illegal DEI indoctrination & make political expression a right
Refuse federal funding to cities that refuses to protect Americans against violent crime
You in? You in? It is getting better.
Three — Declare independence from Communist China
Use all financial levers to hold the CCP responsible for Covid-19
Secure our modern lifestyle by achieving semiconductor independence
CCP Affiliates are prohibited from purchasing American land
Use our military forces to destroy the Mexican drug cartels and defend against CCP’s Opium War
Stop U.S. companies from expanding into China until the CCP ceases to cheat
Third bullet point in the second category sums up the idiocy of Biden’s statement that “China won’t eat our lunch man”. Why on earth does the United States continue to allow a communist dictatorship that has a stated goal of dominating, if not controlling the world’s economic system to buy up American properties and land? Some of these properties are located near sensitive government sites.
The last central theme of Ramaswamy’s policy platform (End Weaponization of Government & Financial Markets), promises to pardon “defendants of politically-motivated prosecutions.”
The list includes former President Donald Trump who was arrested on an indictment Ramaswamy claims was “politically-motivated.” Also included is Ricky Mackey who was convicted of “election interfering in the 2016 presidential election after posting a meme on Twitter.”
Ramaswamy wants to hold Congress accountable for its “hush funds” – which have paid out millions of dollars in workplace settlements to employees – as well as making public the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein’s client list.
Ramaswamy vows also to end Biden’s ridiculous Environmental Social and Governance investment rule. This rule gives fund managers the flexibility to consider leftist causes such as climate change when selecting retirement investments. As a registered investment advisor with 30 years of experience, I can attest that the ESG Rule is a violation of the fiduciary duty of money managers to manage investments assets in the best interest of their investors and beneficiaries. This includes unbiased diversity and minimising large losses.
As I mentioned above, Vivek is too intelligent and his specific platform appeals to tens and millions of Americans who are tired of the radical destruction caused by Biden and the Democrat Party to be ignored by Republican voters.
Ramaswamy’s ability to generate attention and support in the years leading up to the presidential election of 2024 is the question. I believe that the answer is no, given the other — call them “dynamics,” — of the coming Republican primaries. That is, at least until 2024.
