Vivek Ramaswamy, the successful entrepreneur and author, has recently announced his candidacy for the upcoming 2024 presidential election in the United States. With a track record of founding multiple companies and being recognized as one of the most successful business leaders under the age of 40, Ramaswamy brings a unique perspective to the political arena. In this article, we will delve into Ramaswamy’s policy positions, and his plans for the future, as he discusses his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election.
Vivek Ramaswamy recently did an interview with Candace Owens where he talked about his background, including his upbringing as the child of Indian immigrants in Ohio, his education at Harvard and Yale, and his career as an investor and biotech entrepreneur. He also discussed his decision to enter politics and his views on various issues, including capitalism, big pharma, and cancel culture.
Ramaswamy discussed his personal experience growing up in the US and how it shaped his views on affirmative action policies. He believes that affirmative action policies are anti-meritocratic and that they harm the black people who benefit from them. He also believes that affirmative action should be abolished. He explains that many politicians are afraid to address this issue because they fear being called racist.
Ramaswamy also discusses how the US Department of Education is promoting critical race theory in schools by offering grants with strings attached that require schools to adopt certain agendas. He believes that parents should show up at school board meetings to replace bad school board members, but also address the economic incentives created by the US Department of Education.
The two also discussed the importance of vocational training and alternative paths to success beyond a traditional four-year college education. They agree that there is a cultural bias towards higher education and that vocational training can be a viable option for many individuals. They also discuss the role of the federal government in education and the need for change in the current system.
Ramaswamy also talked about the pharmaceutical industry, specifically how it ignores important diseases such as endometriosis and uterine fibroids, and how the FDA makes it difficult to develop new drugs in those areas due to over-regulation. He argues that this over-regulation drives up the cost of drugs and contributes to the lemming-like behavior of the pharmaceutical industry. He also criticizes the FDA’s inconsistency in its standards, pointing out how it has required rigorous testing for small molecule chemicals but not for vaccines or therapies developed in response to pandemic. He argued that this inconsistency reveals the cult-like nature of scientism, where people are asked to believe in contradictory beliefs in the name of science.
In regards to renewable energy he suggest that politicians may be manufacturing demand for batteries and clean energy sources, despite the fact that some countries have abundant resources for traditional energy sources. Ramaswamy thinks that there are deeper motives at work, such as control and dominion, and that there are financial interests involved.
According to Ramaswamy the surge of climate activism in recent years fills a moral vacuum that was previously filled by consumerism, and that it is driven by a transnational movement that seeks to exercise control over everyday people’s lives. He talked about the history of climate alarmism and the belief that economic growth and prosperity are sins.
He criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s readiness to become president, saying that DeSantis is “very practiced” and “rehearsed” and does not have “first personal bone-deep convictions.” Vance argued that the next president needs to be someone with courage and conviction who is not afraid of donors or the media, and he said that he is running for Senate to be that person. Vance also said that he thinks DeSantis is beholden to his political consultancies and the donor class, and he questioned whether DeSantis could be trusted to be “America First” on policies.
He supports Trump’s initiatives but wants to take them to the next level and is willing to learn from his experiences. Overall, Vance sees himself as an outsider who can bring fresh energy to the Senate and address the problems that the country faces.
