Entrepreneur, biotech mogul, and presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has made headlines with his remarks about President Joe Biden during a recent event in Atlanta, in which Ramaswamy asserted that Biden isn’t “really the person running the country.”
Elaborating further, Ramaswamy emphasized that the “cancer that lies beneath [Biden]” is the actual problem, with the broader conflict in America transcending traditional partisan divides and being “between the managerial class and the citizen.”
To Ramaswamy, the current tug-of-war is “between the ‘Great Reset’ and what I call the Great Uprising.”
Ramaswamy’s presidential objectives center around three primary themes, including: shrinking the administrative state and upholding the constitution’s three branches of government; curtailing American dependence on Communist China; and accelerating U.S. economic growth. In service of the first objective, Ramaswamy has announced that he would let go of “about 75% of the federal bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.”
Renowned for his books critiquing the Left’s “woke” ideologies, Ramaswamy raised concerns over the current narrative. He observed the Left pushing divisive topics like race, gender, and climate, emphasizing the need for a counter-narrative rooted in “individual, family, nation, [and] God.” He passionately championed reviving values like faith, family, patriotism, and hard work, lauding them as pillars of progress.
Ramaswamy emphasized the need for swift action, as he believes that the window of opportunity to save the country is swiftly closing: “I don’t think we have 20 years left as a country if we just passively stand by and watch.”
