******For a Disclaimer: I am in NO way being compensated by the Tulsi campaign for my writings and opinions.******
AS the debates approach I will make my feelings known on the candidates…..
I make no secret that I am antiwar and have been since 1972 and I seldom have a candidate that is not a third party trying to get a hold in mainstream politics.
2020 I will have a candidate that is my in line with my thinking, Tulsi Gabbard……she is anti-intervention and that makes her antiwar and that makes her my choice as a candidate.
The problem is her stands on war is making her very unpopular with the wars main cheerleaders…MSM…..
Presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard has not garnered much press coverage since announcing her bid on February 2; she’s the 13th-most-mentioned Democratic candidate on TV news, according to FAIR’s most recent count (4/14/19).
But when corporate media do talk about the Hawaii congressmember, they tend to reveal more about themselves than about her.
A veteran of the Iraq War, Gabbard is centering her presidential campaign around anti-interventionism (2/3/19): the belief that US interference in foreign countries, especially in the form of regime-change wars, increases the suffering of the citizens in those countries
Ever since Tulsi Gabbard was first elected to Congress in 2012, she has been assertively independent, heterodox, unpredictable, and polarizing. Viewed at first as a loyal Democrat and guaranteed future star by party leaders — due to her status as an Iraq War veteran, a telegenic and dynamic young woman, and the first Hindu and Samoan-American elected to Congress — she has instead become a thorn in the side, and frequent critic, of those same leaders.
Gabbard’s transformation from cherished party asset to party critic and outcast was rapid, and was due almost entirely to her insistence on following her own belief system and evolving ideology, rather than party dogma and the longstanding rules for Washington advancement. In 2012, Rachel Maddow, upon announcing Gabbard’s victory, instructed her audience to learn Gabbard’s name because, the MSNBC host gushed, “She is on the fast track to being very famous someday.” In 2015, Maddow invited Gabbard on her show to herald her as one of the leaders of what Maddow touted as an urgently needed, new bipartisan congressional caucus composed of military veterans in the war on terror.
I appreciate Greenwald giving her a chance to voice her opinion without being treated like she had one eye in the center of her forehead.
She is still the candidate for me.
Hopefully more people will come to her side in this contentious election.
To be honest there is one part of Tulsi’s stances that is disturbing to me…….her comments on the War on Terror……but as with everything I will research it more before I comment.
Then GO VOTE!
