On Wednesday evening, I met Vivek Ramaswamy, who is running for president of America.
After I failed to snap a pic with Trump in early 2016 when he was doing a CNN Q&A with Anderson Cooper at then-Theos on Elm, I have resolved to not be an idiot when the opportunity presents itself. “You never know,” as Ma likes to say.
The event was held at Free Stater-owned Murphy’s Taproom and LBRY CEO & FSP board member Jeremy Kauffman gave opening remarks.
I don’t know if Vivek is on the up-and-up.
He’s certainly got on-stage charism. A good story: First gen Indian-American makes good in bio-pharma; claims to be anti-woke and anti-China (although he did do business there). He had some bad things to say, like suggesting we make war with Mexican cartels–what could possibly go wrong?–and he didn’t answer the question about independence asked by “Mayor of Manchester.”
The internet is already a twitter that he is a WEF shill. Ian Freeman has a negative impression. I’m willing to continue to listen but this is such a long shot, the best we can hope is he stays on message about not supporting globalism, wanting to reform the federal government, being anti-CBDC. We’ll see…
