Watch: How Vivek Ramaswamy Plans to Save the World - Ukraine, Israel, Deep State & Donald Trump
Steven Crowder and Gerald A sat down with GOP Presidential Candidate Vivek Ramaswamy for this special episode of "Ash Wednesday." The trio discussed Donald Trump, defunding the FBI, his campaign, BlackRock, and much more.
While on his second book tour, Vivek saw a gap in the Republican party and a missing overall message that compelled him to announce his candidacy.
"There's an absence of national identity in this country. We [his family] have lived the American dream. [I] can't ask for more from this country than the country has already given us. How am I going to make the maximal impact?” Vivek said.
One thing that makes America different from most other countries is that it was built on ideals, rather than a religion or monarch.
"If you have a group of people that decide those ideals no longer exist - that has an underlying effect on the way the country actually works," Vivek said.
One major issue right now is how Tech companies are effectively making political decisions regarding what kind of content is allowed on the internet.
"If it is state action in disguise, if the government is giving a special blanket of protection to a class of companies to do exactly what they are doing, the constitution still applies," Vivek said.
The trio went on to discuss BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard.
"It is this hybrid of big government and big business that together are able to do what neither one could alone. And we require leaders that recognize that new threat," Vivek said.
Because of civil service protections, it is harder for the president to fire individual people. For example, if someone works at the FTC and the president disagrees with their view on abortion, they are entitled to civil service protections.
"But they do not apply to mass layoffs. That is key. Mass layoffs are absolutely what I am bringing to the D.C. bureaucracy,” Vivek said.
Vivek added that the following agencies should not exist: the Department of Education, FBI, IRS, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the CDC, and more.
Gerald A went ahead and asked the question on everyone's mind: What makes him different from Trump?
"I do think it will take someone from the next generation to reach the next generation," Vivek said. He added, "I also think we can pick up where Trump left off.”
Trump also set the group work to make this happen.
"Trump gave us a great Supreme Court. He did pretty much all a reasonable person could have done in those four years. I want to build on that and move this forward but I have got fresh legs this time around,” Vivek said.
One concern voters may have is that Vivek has no foreign policy experience.
"My view for the other people on the stage is that [they] do have foreign policy experience, and it shows," Vivek said. He added, "[Haley] is a symptom of a deeper cancer of corruption that causes people to adopt pro-war policies that have made a lot of people rich in this country."
He clarified, "If you want an existing foreign policy establishment that favors war for the sake of war, and a lot of bad actors in there who even make money off of advocating for it, fine go with one of those people with foreign policy experience."
In other words, if you want someone who gives you more of the same, where unneeded American lives are lost, then sure, go vote for foreign policy experience.
Maybe, having more experience may actually add fuel to the fire.
"When a track record is bad, it is not much of a track record," Crowder said.
