There is a powerful historical precedent for Tulsi Gabbard’s transition from a Bernie Sanders Democrat to being one of the fiercest critics of Joe Biden’s warmongering abroad and attacks on freedom at home.
Between the 1930’s and the 1960’s, New Deal Democrat Ronald Reagan became a small government Republican and a two term President in the 1980’s. Many conservatives believe Reagan deserves to be added to Mount Rushmore.
In 2019 former Reagan Communications Director Pat Buchanan wrote an opinion peace attacking damage to the Reagan foreign policy legacy of avoiding major war entitled “Memo To Trump: Trade Bolton For Tulsi”. Buchanan quoted Gabbard’s criticism of Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton’s policies: “This insanity must end.” Buchanan praised her criticism as something Trump himself might have said in 2016.
Now in 2023, some people suggest Gabbard could be a great running mate for The Donald in 2024.
She has recently said:
A. that the Biden Democratic Party is “now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness.”
B. that Leftist lawmakers racialise “every issue and stoke anti-white racism.”
C. “You see the final expression of cancel culture in Islamist terrorist groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda ……”
D. that it breaks her heart to see people like President Biden “so readily throwing our constitution in the trash, so readily passing policies and taking stands that violate our fundamental freedoms ……“
Poet John Keats died on this day 200 years ago in 1821.
He wrote: “Intelligences are atoms of perception — they know and they see and they are pure, in short they are God.”
Combining this with Tulsi Gabbard’s vision of Aloha for all gives me hope “because” as Gabbard has said, “as long as God exists, whose very essence is love, there is hope. And since God is eternal and will always exist, there will always be hope. God’s love is the light within each of our hearts, and it’s the answer to how we as a people, all children of God, no matter our background or our politics, can come together and heal our divides.“
Someone I respect, Tulsi Gabbard, has just described Coronavirus as the “enemy” ……. I am worried about this common attempt to use a military approach to a health care problem …….. I think that the Coronavirus is a germ not a miltary foe ……. it is a part of both nature and God’s creation ….. in tackling the problem we need to care not to fight ….. and to be able to care, we need to stay alive.
So important jobs like POTUS need to be done by people not at risk of death because of their age.
Of the last three Democrat candidates in the 2020 race Gabbard was the only one under 77 years old.
Sanders, 78, recent heart attack. Biden, 77, memory and cognitive abilities in clear decline. Trump, 74. Pence, 60. Both Republicans are in good health.
