An Exciting US Presidential Candidate!

An Exciting US Presidential Candidate! By Vivek Ramaswamy.

It’s as if he reads the Wentworth Report. Hasn’t got a hope of being elected, of course.

We can’t answer what it means to be an American.

The Republican Party’s top priority should be to fill this void with an inspiring national identity that dilutes the woke agenda to irrelevance. Instead, many top Republicans recite slogans they memorized in 1980 or criticize left-wing culture without offering an alternative.

To put America first, we need to rediscover what America is. That’s why I am running for president. I am launching not only a political campaign but a cultural movement to create a new American Dream — one that is not only about money but about the unapologetic pursuit of excellence.

Meritocracy restored:

I am running on a vision for our nation — one that revives merit in every sphere of American life.

We must restore merit for who gets to come to America. … That means securing the border unapologetically and eliminating lottery-based immigration in favor of meritocratic admission.

We must embrace merit in who gets to succeed in America …. As president I will eliminate affirmative action across the American economy. …

We must revive merit in who gets to govern in America. Democracy depends on a simple principle: The people we elect to run the government must be the people who actually run the government. The next time unelected bureaucrats like Anthony Fauci or Merrick Garland reach beyond their legal scope, I commit to doing what the president is constitutionally empowered to do: fire them. … I will shut down agencies that can’t be reformed and create new ones built from scratch to replace them.

We must restore merit in determining which ideas win in America. The best ideas are born when no ideas are censored. … As Elon Musk did at Twitter, I will release the “state action files” from the federal government — publicly exposing every known instance in which bureaucrats have wrongfully pressured companies to take constitutionally prohibited actions. …

Viewpoint censorship extends beyond the internet and pervades our economy. If you can’t fire someone for being black, gay or Muslim, you shouldn’t be able to fire someone for his political speech. I will work with Congress to enshrine political expression as an American civil right, and I will enforce existing civil-rights laws to protect workers from invidious viewpoint discrimination. …

America’s strength isn’t our diversity but the ideals that unify us across our differences. These ideals won the American Revolution, reunited us after the Civil War, won two World Wars and the Cold War. They still give hope to the free world. If we can revive them, nothing will defeat us.

America would be worth emulating again.
