and his base would blame Dems if they are the ones getting fired..lolThe man is completely bonkers. So he will fire people based on SSN? Even if it is essential personel or experts with unique knowledge. Doing what he plans would be to efficiently destroy the entire administrative system but I expect that that is precisely what he wants. He is just another (younger) wanna-be Musk
Vivek has a base?and his base would blame Dems if they are the ones getting fired..lol
unfortunately, this country gets crazier and crazier people every year.Vivek has a base?
His suggestions just seem to get crazier and crazier

PHILLIP: Just a final point of clarity on this. Once the United States achieves semiconductor independence, do you believe it will be in the United States national interest to deter China from invading Taiwan?
RAMASWAMY: We will evaluate at that point in time. It will not be preferable for China to invade Taiwan even then.
PHILLIP: That’s not an answer to my question.
RAMASWAMY: But we will then adopt what is our current–
PHILLIP: But you are not answering–
RAMASWAMY: Because that’s in the future, Abby.
PHILLIP: You’re not answering my question.
RAMASWAMY: Abby, I think you don’t understand. Abby, do you, do you actually know what “strategic ambiguity” means right now?
PHILLIP: I’m just asking you a simple question.
RAMASWAMY: Do you understand the current posture? The current posture is strategic ambiguity.
PHILLIP: Mr. Ramaswamy, it’s a yes or no.
RAMASWAMY: I get the feeling you don’t know what that is.
PHILLIP: It’s a yes or no answer.
RAMASWAMY: So, I’m happy to educate you if you’re interested. Strategic ambiguity will be what we resume. It’s the current status quo, and that’s what we will resume after we’ve achieved semiconductor independence. It’s that simple. The status quo will be exactly what obtains after we’ve achieved semiconductor independence. And in the meantime–
PHILLIP: A simple answer to that question would actually be a yes or no. But I do want to turn now to a different topic, to politics. Here’s what your fellow Republicans–
RAMASWAMY: A simple answer here is, you have geopolitics here. It’s a little more complicated than, than you’re making it out to be, Abby.

Vivek Ramaswamy Gives Masterclass in Condescension to CNN’s Abby Phillip
Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy turned in a cringeworthy interview on Wednesday’s CNN NewsNight, where he repeatedly spoke down to host Abby Phillip.
Phillip asked Ramaswamy about U.S.-Taiwan relations, which are perpetually fraught given that China looms large over all things relating to the self-governing region that the U.S. nonetheless recognizes as part of China. Ramaswamy previously said the U.S. should defend Taiwan – the world’s leading manufacturer of semiconductors – against a potential Chinese invasion “until we have semiconductor independence in this country, which is where I will lead us.”
Ramaswamy responded by saying if the U.S. does achieve “semiconductor independence,” his administration would assume a posture of “strategic ambiguity.”
That led to this exchange:
I watched most of it praying for it to end. He was despicable.i watched about 10 min of it live...i had to turn it off.
The whole "strategic ambiguity" thing was just cringe-worthy and i applaud Abby for her composure throughout the 10 min that i watched - ( Trumps "Vermin" language that he was TOTALLY non-committed to answering, it was that whole China/Taiwain part and then the Nikky Haley/Ronna McDaniel etc part )
Vivek just does what most do that have no real answers- Talk loud, talk over and try to obfuscate until you are in total control of the situation/conversation.
That’s because Rugg is alt-right. He has a definite audience in mind, and they lap it up. Also, Vivek actually said that Antifa has been burning down US cities for 3 years? And this Rugg idiot thinks that is a fine statement? That should tell you right there - these people are not reality-based. They are just bonkers.So the comments to this are surprisingly pro Vivek
Actually they are reality based. It is just that their reality isn’t real. This is a collective belief structure based upon paranoia, imo. I once said that I think a huge majority of people need mental health care. The society created based upon psychotic individualism and constant struggle to acquire while living in fear of “the other” is psychologically destabilizing. Among the things that this does is unearth buried tribalistic authoritarian tendencies: only our strongman can rule.That’s because Rugg is alt-right. He has a definite audience in mind, and they lap it up. Also, Vivek actually said that Antifa has been burning down US cities for 3 years? And this Rugg idiot thinks that is a fine statement?
