Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says she is running for president

Just another passenger on the Ship of Fools?? It doesn’t look like it.

Just what I always hoped for, a president named Tulsi!!!

BUTT now that I look at the lady’s qualifications, she may be the most legitimate gal to run for the THE BIG CHAIR. At the very lease, her being a combat veteran and served her country well speaks volumes.

Tulsi Gabbard (/ˈtʌlsi ˈɡæbərd/; born April 12, 1981) is an American combat veteran and politician serving as the U.S. Representative for  Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district since 2013. A member of the Democratic Party, she was a Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee until February 28, 2016, when she resigned to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Elected in 2012, she is the first Samoan American member of the United States Congress.

Gabbard served in a field medical unit of the Hawaii Army National Guard in a combat zone in Iraq from 2004 to 2005 and was later deployed to Kuwait. She previously served in the Hawaii House of Representatives from 2002 to 2004. When she was elected to the Hawaii House of Representatives at age 21, Gabbard was the youngest woman to be elected to a U.S. state legislature. She supports abortion rights, opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, has called for a restoration of the Glass–Steagall Act and changed her stance to support same-sex marriage in 2012. She is critical of aspects of U.S. foreign policy regarding Iraq, Libya and Syria. She opposes removing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power.

On January 11, 2019, Gabbard announced her campaign to seek the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2020.

Well – well – well, we have a person running for THE BIG CHAIR that actually served in the military and a combat veteran. That sets her apart from some of the male draft dodgers that have held the office, present and the past. It has always been my opinion; NO ONE should be allowed to run or serve as the president if they have not served in the military.

What does military experience do for a person?? They can empathize and connect with the service people as well as they working citizen of the country. For THE MOST PART, they are stand-up, patriotic, hard working, dedicated to their families and their country. That also speaks volumes.

Personally; I will be keeping my one good eye on Tulis. She may be the one to break the gender barrier.

I don’t care what gender, party, race, color or creed a person is that sits in the BIG CHAIR; what I do care about is them doing what they were elected for. That seems to be tho biggest hang-up we have seen in the past.

I think THE RIGHT women in office would be a great boost for the country. Examples of two SUPER LADIES that ruled their country with an iron hand.



It may be a little premature, if Tulsi is not one of the democratic wack-jobs and can duplicate what these ladies did, she may get my vote.
