Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy

This dude is telling others to brush up on Civics?!? Adorable.

"Abolish unions" is a great slogan! We should get rid of the 40 hour work we too! And paid vacations! And employer based healthcare! (Actually, I agree with that one; just not the way he described)

And now we are going to hire almost a Half a Million security guards! Yes! They are so easy to find for 40k a year!

He needs history, civics and economics classes.
 


fast talking, snake oil salesman gonna used car salesman yah.

Facts First: Ramaswamy’s claim is false. He never argued in The Wall Street Journal op-ed that censorship was the real cause of the January 6 riot. Rather, Ramaswamy and his co-author criticized social media companies for banning Trump and some of his supporters in the days after the riot. They argued that social media companies are violating the Constitution when they censor users, and they warned that Silicon Valley stifling the voices of disaffected Americans would lead to future “terror” that would make the Capitol riot look peaceful by comparison. They never argued in the op-ed that censorship was even a partial cause of the January 6 riot – which they described as “disgraceful,” “last week’s horror” and “a stain on American history” – let alone its primary cause.
 
Due to my job as a community Manager I unfortunately have to keep a profile on X and since I tested positive for Covid on monday ( Don't feel sick at all) I have been stuck at home bored.

I have a rather interesting conversation going with a couple of Russians who follow Vivek on X (Vivek argues that everyone should just let Russia do what they want to do - His recipe for "peace in Europe"
I take great pleasure in "educating" them about "Russian history of agression" and along the way some of the Trumpers in the thread may learn a thing or two :devilish::devilish:
 
This guy is dangerous. In some ways worse than Trump. Like Trump with a brain!

Swamp-class “advisors” have duped Presidents from Reagan to Trump into believing that the White House needs Congress to fire federal employees & shut down regulatory agencies. That view is wrong. Next Wednesday, I will lay out detailed plans for shutting down *five* major federal agencies using executive authority under *existing* statutes. We will reduce federal employees by 75%, shut down redundant agencies, & rescind >50% of federal regulations which fail to meet the West Virginia v. EPA standard. This is the single most powerful lever to unleash the U.S. economy. All that’s required is a U.S. President with sufficient spine & knowledge to act. 11 AM EST at the America First Policy Institute Headquarters in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, September 13. We’re taking this movement to the next level.

"All that’s required is... sufficient... knowledge"

This coming from a guy that thinks birthright citizenship is unconstitutional and wants to require a test for people to vote before the age of 25. His knowledge of basic constitutional principles is dreadful. I'm pretty sure his grasp of detailed rules, regulations, and policies is even worse.
 
Just another con-man looking for a way to be very rich. No wonder that he want to dissolve the DOE


“I'm the only candidate on stage who isn't bought and paid for, so I can say this: The climate change agenda is a hoax,” he said.

I’m here to tell you why Ramaswamy is promoting fossil fuel boosterism. He’s hoping it will make him, and his billionaire friends, even more rich.

But recently, he’s become best known as “the right’s most prominent crusader against climate-conscious investing.” His latest mission: ensure Republican-led states pull their money from big investment firms like BlackRock that are trying (or at least claiming) to make more climate-friendly decisions, and reallocate that money to his firm, Strive Asset Management, which explicitly promises not to invest with the climate in mind.

The fossil fuel industry has wanted someone to do this for many years. As we’ve previously reported, the anti-ESG movement—which pushes corporations to reject environmentally and socially conscious investing principles—was originally created by fossil fuel industry operatives to try to delay the renewable energy transition.

The movement fizzled in the early 2000s. But it was revived in 2022, when Ramaswamy launched Strive with the help of billionaire investors Peter Thiel and Bill Ackman, as well as the same fossil fuel industry-connected group that spearheaded the original movement.

Ramaswamy has reported more than $50 million in holdings in Strive, which to date, is mostly a fund to promote fossil fuel development. As Semafor reports, the largest fund at Strive—called DRLL—“ invests in U.S. energy companies and urges them to keep drilling for oil so long as it’s profitable.”

Yeah, it's unfortunate that he is getting so much attention for being a sleaze bag. The first time that I ever heard of him or hear him speak was on one of the Sunday morning show, Meet the Press I believe. I was left wondering why the heck would any reputable source invite him on to their show. I was imprinted with the impression that Ramaswamy is no more than a charlatan. Apparently, he also made his wealth in a pump and dump scheme.


Ramaswamy’s tax records show that the first time he ever made big money was when he hyped up an Alzheimer’s drug candidate, Axovant, which had been discarded by other pharmaceutical companies. Axovant, which was 78% owned by Ramaswamy’s corporate holding company Roivant, blew up after failing FDA tests, with the stock crashing from $200 to 40 cents, fleecing thousands of mom-and-pop investors who bought into the hype. Ramaswamy himself profited handsomely (even if the Ramaswamy campaign took a while to acknowledge the truth).

He's Hindu, he doesn't have a chance
Vivek Ramaswamy calls for a renewed belief in God and country on the campaign trail, listing "God is real" as the first of his campaign's 10 foundational "truths," even as he fields repeated questions from conservative voters about his own Hindu faith.

These interactions underscore Ramaswamy's unique background in the field and how voters on the trail have been receiving his message. (The other Indian American in the race, former Gov. Nikki Haley, was raised Sikh but converted to Christianity.)

"Your first line says, 'God is real.' What God are we talking about?" one voter in Iowa asked in August. (In Hinduism, there is one supreme god, the Brahman, that can be manifested as several gods and minor deities. Christians believe in one God and the teachings of his son, Jesus.)

It's a conversation the entrepreneur has had many times, with questions on his faith coming up again on his most recent Iowa visit.

"I'm a Hindu. I was raised Hindu. We raised our kids in the same tradition as well," Ramaswamy replied when Terrill Campbell, 57, from Fort Dodge, Iowa, asked what "religions" Ramaswamy believes in on Saturday.

"I happen to be well-versed in the Bible because I went to Christian high school: St. [Xavier] in Cincinnati. ... I'm never gonna pretend to be something I'm not," he said.

Ramaswamy, who frequently invokes stories from the Bible on the campaign trail, has said, "There is a true god." He has also drawn parallels between Hinduism and Christianity, saying "religions like ours" -- unlike "new secular religions" have stood the test of time.

Having attended a Jesuit high school, Ramaswamy says he has read the Bible more closely than many of his Christian friends, a sentiment that some have praised him for. While he says he read the religious text for the first time in ninth grade, he maintains it always felt familiar. After "[leaving] faith altogether" in his 20s, considering himself agnostic, Ramaswamy says the year leading up to the birth of his first son, Karthik, revitalized his relationship with Hinduism and overall belief in God.............
