Vivek Ramaswamy : Archived

US President

Courage is contagious.

Vivek is an American business leader and New York Times bestselling author of Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam, along with his second book, Nation of Victims: Identity Politics, the Death of Merit, and the Path Back to Excellence. Left leaning media has called him the "intellectual godfathers of the anti-woke movement" (Politico) and the “right’s leading anti-ESG crusader” (Axios and Bloomberg). He was dubbed "The C.E.O. of Anti-Woke," by the New Yorker and has been described by the Federalist Society as "one of the most compelling conservative voices in the country." These movements are now popularized in mainstream conservative thought. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, he often recounts the sage advice from his father: “If you’re going to stand out, then you might as well be outstanding.” This set the course for his life: a nationally ranked tennis player, and the valedictorian of his high school, St. Xavier. He went on to graduate summa cum laude in Biology from Harvard and received his J.D. from Yale Law School, while working at a hedge fund, then started a biotech company, Roivant Sciences, where he oversaw the development of five drugs that went on to become FDA-approved. In 2022, he founded Strive, an Ohio-based asset management firm that directly competes with asset managers like BlackRock, State Street, Vanguard and others, use the money of everyday citizens to advance environmental and social agendas that many citizens and capital owners disagree with. Vivek is married to Apoorva, a throat surgeon and Assistant Professor at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. They live in Columbus, Ohio where they are raising their two sons.

Best candidate by far in 2024. In short, we get Trump's policies without all the baggage, drama and bs. One other thing, is he will bring a percentage of young voters with him that trump will never get!

Slick and arrogant, which many see as well-educated. I, however, don't see the education, as he doesn't seem to know history or the constitution. He has zero experience, but thinks that he has all the answers. I think he would be a bad president.

Vivek Ramaswamy's energy is commendable, and it's worth noting that he is well-educated. He also appears to be a good family man with an equally well-educated wife. However, his campaign message of privatizing 75% of federal jobs is concerning. It raises questions about putting American workers at the mercy of private businesses, much like how employees can be at the mercy of organizations like the UAW. His proposal to reduce federal jobs seems to prioritize less government oversight, potentially benefiting corporate interests over the welfare of American workers. Recent events like the UAW strike demonstrate that promises of giving power to the people don't always translate in practice. I have serious reservations about the practicality of his proposals, especially considering how private businesses are often loyal to their owners, stakeholders, and executives. Disapprove.

Pro-parent, pro-family, pro-education. Very sharp & well-spoken. Moral courage. Not afraid to challenge woke narratives. Full of energy. Supports bold ideas. My favorite idea is supporting school choice vouchers, but if the voucher is higher than the cost of tuition, then the child/family keeps the difference that can be re-invested into the child’s future.Then again, I’m not sure how he can truly accomplish that effectively on a federal level because most school funds come from the state. Some of his ideas are controversial. I don’t like his idea of disallowing people to vote if they don’t pass a certain civics test because I worry that will only punish people who were failed by the education system. Also, I believe he said that abortion should be a “state’s” issue, instead of advocating for a reasonable federal abortion bill. He also kisses up to Trump, probably because he seeks the blessing of his base. If Trump gets successfully disqualified from the election, it will be interesting to see how well he does, vs DeSantis & Haley. I think Vivek would be a strong and interesting president. If not, he has a bright future. Maybe if he loses, he could be offered a VP or cabinet position.

There's no doubt Vivek is a smart dude. The problem is he strikes me as someone who will say anything; almost like a professional college debate team captain who can argue either side of an issue with great confidence and eloquence. The problem is authenticity, humility, and experience.
