Former Representative Tulsi Gabbard announces presidential run as a 'Populist Democrat'

Tulsi Gabbard Launches Federal Push To Safeguard Women's Sports

"My fellow patriots, this time last year I announced I had left the Democratic party, but over the last few months I've come to a realization: I didn't leave the Democrats, the Democrats left me. The Democrats left me when they delivered trillions of dollars in aid to billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet, while small business owners, and everyday legacy Americans languish under record high inflation, and a stagnant economy. The Democrats left me when they attempted to disregard basic reality by allowing men to become women. The Democrats left me when they attempted to gut our law enforcement agencies, destroy our borders, and turn our country into something unrecognizable. The Democrats left me when they brought the world to the edge of total nuclear annihilations in a vain attempt to stop Russia from reclaiming its ancestral homelands.

In my talks with hundreds of Americans, many of them Democrats themselves, I've realized that these policies do not stem from the grassroots. No, these policies are pushed onto us by globalist elites who have taken control of our party, our culture, and - if we do not stop them now - our very country. I am running for the millions of Disaffected Democrats who do not approve of the Biden regime's divisive, woke, anti-American, far-left governance. This is a run for the soul of the Democratic Party, our last, best hope to take our party, and our country back from the woke Biden regime, and their globalist taskmasters."

Senator John Fetterman announces his Presidential run

Fetterman agrees to 1 debate against Oz in Pa. Senate race - The San Diego  Union-Tribune

I'm running because we need a President who sees outside of DC. I have never been a typical politician and I don't ever count on being one. I plan on bringing the perspective of the working man to the White House. I'm going to be a brand new Democrat, tough on crime, pro police and pro police reform, pro gun ad pro gun control. People have had enough of the out of touch Washington elites dragging their feet and forcing them into one camp with half their views or another with the other half. I'm going to carry what the real working American wants to the White House and that's healthcare that won't bankrupt you, a police force that works for everyone and a roof over everyone's head.

Former President Donald Trump Announces 4th Run for President

Donald Trump: What we learned from his rally in Pennsylvania | RNZ News

"Over the last four years the Leftist Democrat's regime, aided by RINOs like Cocaine Mitch, have stabbed everyday Americans in the back. They've forced their woke socialist agenda down our throats, and opened up the border to allow a flood of crime, drugs, and illegal aliens. They've crashed our economy by propping up runaway inflation, raising taxes on hard working Americans, and giving away trillions of dollars to their donors, to lazy ne'er-do-wells, and to immigrants. They've ripped up the doctrine of America First, allowed the globalists to trample all over us, and brought us to the brink of nuclear war over some piddly little parcels of land in Eastern Europe. Every day, legacy Americans are being stabbed in the back by the Biden Regime, and I have had enough!

My fellow Americans, I'm proud to stand on this stage before each, and everyone of you, and announce that Donald Trump is once again running to be your President! We are going to build a wall on our southern border, and reform our broken immigration system! We are going to fight back against the woke agenda, and restore this country as God's country! We are going to cut taxes, cut wasteful spending, and protect Social Security, and Medicare! We are going to put America, and Americans First both at home, and abroad! We are going to Make America Great Again!"

 Representative Alexadria Ocasio-Cortez announces intention to seek the Democratic Nomination for President in 2024

 

For decades this country's  politics has been mired in stale ways of thinking. As the country faces new challenges we need dynamic leaders with new ideas to get this country moving again. We need a new approach to the environment if we are to battle climate change, we need a new approach to economics if we are ever to reach our goal of eradicating poverty and we need a clear eyed approach to foreign policy to navigate the ever changing situations abroad. That is why today I announce my intention to seek the Democratic nomination for President of the U.S

Howard Stern announces run for President during the Howard Stern Show.

Stern: “You know, I’ve been thinking about this upcoming election, and I’m just like ‘what the hell is the point?’

Cast: (Laughter)

Stern: Right? I mean, Global Warming is already out of control, right, nothing we can do about that, and at that point what else is worth debating? The world’s doomed, we might as well have some fun, right!?

Quivers: Is that going to be your slogan?

Stern: You know what? Yeah, yeah! I’m running for President! I’m running to restore insanity to American politics, fix our broken institutions, and get the government off the back of our backs in the last few decades of industrial civilization.”

Hillary Clinton announces her political comeback!

”My entire public life, from my time as First Lady of Arkansas to my service in the Senate, and as Secretary of State, I have always fought for equal rights, and a fair shake for every American. In 2016 I fought against the vile machinations of Donald Trump, and came up short due to the inadequacies of our Electoral College. As both extremes call for destructive change to the American system, and as many of my fellow moderates shirk running for President, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring. I am the candidate for measured change, with a steady hand, and a cool head, that will ensure that our treasured institutions survive, and evolve, instead of ripping them up, and trying to start over again.”

Cory Booker announces second President run in Newark

”Hello Newark, I’m extremely excited to announce to you my intention to run for President! I’ve talked to Democrats across this nation and we need the youth to take the wheel and move us to the prosperous America we believe in. I thank President Biden for all the incredible work he has done, I also understand the frustration from our Progressive friends like AOC. I seek to unite these two wings of the party and the country. My five point plan is as follows:

Healthcare: Create a Public Option so our most vulnerable are taken care of and people who have a great plan under their employer or union can keep it.

Education: Investment to ensure every student and teacher has the supplies they need so every child can reach their full potential.

Foreign Policy: We’ve seen madmen like Vladmir Putin and The Saudi royal family commit violence throughout the world. We have to stand up to bullies and make sure our Allie’s know we got their back.

Crime: We need to free nonviolent offenders who sold marijuana and fill the prisons with kingpins who sell heroin and crack, and violent offenders and rapists.

Unity: Look there’s plenty of Republicans I have a lot of respect and love for, the late John McCain was an inspiration for many of us in the senate, I’m confident we can get back to the day where we can have modern day examples of McCain and Ted Kennedy who may have had numerous disagreements but were united in love of country.

Charlie Baker announces run for President in Massachusetts 

“ my friends, I am a republican. I’ve been a Republican all my life. We are the party of Lincoln, Eisenhower, and Reagan. we cannot, and will not continue to be The party that cannot concede an election, we cannot be the party that turns our back on women, on those in the LGBT community, on refugees from Ukraine. The Republican Party used to dominate here in the Northeast and people like Phil Scott, and myself have proven that we still can, so join me and let’s win back the Republican party and show that the majority of the American people can get behind a socially liberal yet fiscally conservative Republican Party.

Liz Cheney Presidential Announcement

"My fellow Americans. I come here today before you to announce my campaign for President of the United States."

"However, I will not be running as a Republican. I stand here today as a Democrat, a decision that I've not taken lightly. And while I know many of you may think this an unserious move... I'm going to tell you why it isn't, and what our nation faces."

"The Republican Party throughout the course of 8 years has left me, along with many other men and women who were once the mainstream of the Republican Party. Today we see a party riddled in lies, cultish behavior, borderline insanity, and most of all, open complacency in betrayal of the Constitution, and the United States of America."

"The Republican Party that my father proudly served with, as did I, is gone. Donald Trump and the movement throughout the nation that not only he has built, but others in both parties as well... has grown to take control of a party I once considered the greatest in American history. Democracy in the United States came close to falling on January 6th, 2021. Donald Trump lit the flame, and assembled a mob to attack the United States Capito; in an attempt to remain in power despite President Joe Biden lawfully, fairly, and solidly winning the 2020 Presidential Election." 

"A rarity in the modern era, I along with many other brave fellow Republicans stood up to those in the party who aided him, or simply turned a blind eye to what happened that day. Many of us were defeated, many of us have been threatened by the MAGA following, but empty threats will not bring our movement to save American democracy down. The Republican Party is dangerous until the influence of Donald Trump and his following is defeated."

"However, my decision to run as a Democrat today will likely mean political failure... despite this, I have chosen to do so to bring forth our movement to it's political evolution. I call on all Republicans, and Independents who now consider themselves left behind by the Republican Party, and feel as if no one can represent them... I ask you to join me in ensuring our voice is heard in a party that isn't controlled by one man. All political parties have their flaws, but when democracy is at stake we must come together in the unwavering defense of America."

"Democrats themselves, and even those on the populist end who consider themselves to be Pro-Russia, Anti-Israel, Anti-Freedom, isolationist... may laugh at our campaign. But the numbers do not lie. Disaffected Republicans and former Republicans made up a sizable portion of President Biden's victory in 2020. Polls have shown anywhere from 10-20% of a coalition of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents would back me if I were to run third party. However unlike Donald Trump who has expressed willingness to do so should the Republican Party ditch him, I will not spoil an election to Anti-Democracy forces. I will attempt to the best of my ability to make our voices heard in a new Democratic Party, against a new Republican Party."

"Our goal may be futile. Our campaign may be defeated. But America has the chance in this very moment to re-define these troubling times. To take a stand and draw the line at, 'Country over party.' That is the goal of our movement. The vast majority of Americans reject the utter nonsense of 'MAGA' and isolationist populism. It is up to us to see it to fruition. Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan were a part of a movement that re-defined politics for decades. Franklin Delano Roosevelt re-defined politics for decades. I stand here today as a fellow Patriot, despite being a Former Republican, and hope to bring upon a new era of American politics, and a new definition of the Democratic Party. Thank you all. God Bless you, and God Bless the United States of America."

Colorado Governor Polis Announces 2024 Presidential Campaign

"I'm here to tell you, Denver, I want you to be the first to know that I am officially running for President. What I've seen here in Colorado is that despite our differences and our viewpoints, Americans can come together to make sensible common-sense solutions to bread and butter issues. I know what it's like to represent a state divided, a state that's shifting towards the future. As Governor of Colorado, I've worked with Democrats and Republicans from all across the ideological aisle to grow the state's economy, send freedoms back to the people, and modernize our system of income.

What I believe I can offer to the American people is a new kind of Democrat, new kind of politician. The American people have had good reason to be frustrated with national Democrats, and I have experience governing as Liberty Democrat. I know all about upholding our constitutional rights, limiting the powers of the government, and cutting back on inefficiencies that plague all of us. As President, I will bring together a new platform: one focused on facts and modernization.

As President, on day one I will initiate the federal process to decriminalize marijuana possession and finally end the drug wars that have plagued us for a half century, while looking into further actions such as Colorado's decriminalization of psilocybin and other drugs. I will protect the rights of the American people, nominating pro-constitution judges who will support your rights as a person: The right to a safe and legal abortion! The right to choose a path for your children! The right to live free of excessive government taxation! The right to live in this world knowing that you're a free man who has nothing to fear! No longer will the government turn to spy on its citizens. I will work closely with my fellow liberty-minded friends to draft a new Privacy Amendment to the constitution, to further guarantee the American man's rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We will pursue a pro-human rights foreign policy, avoiding direct confrontations and the deaths of American sons and daughters while uplifting foreign nations and furthering our place in the world.

 

America, you are about to see what Colorado can show you. My primary campaign will be completely self-funded, and I'm coming America."

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis to deliver first State of the State speech ...

"My fellow Americans, our country faces an important decision in 2024, one that will have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. At a time of economic instability, geopolitical turmoil, and domestic unrest, we are due for a course correction and a return to strong leadership. The stakes have never been higher but our opportunity has never been greater. We are facing daunting challenges as a nation, but if we unite behind the principles and values that built this country, we can overcome. It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve as Governor of the great state of South Carolina and to represent the United States of America on the world stage as UN Ambassador, and I am here today to announce that I am running for President of the United States, and I humbly ask for you support in this campaign to bring back American leadership."

Rolls a 7!

Tulsi got a surprisingly warm reception in the Democratic party.Her populist arguments resonated well amongst blue collar voters,as well as anti-war progressives.Most Democrats are still skeptical of her for pro-Putin rhetoric and leaving the party just last year,but she got a pretty decent start in the primary.

Unfortunately,it looks like Fetterman still didn't completely recover from his stroke.His speech was bumbling,incoherent and filled with gaffes.He called himself “working woman” and announced running for “Republican nomination”.Bad start for Fetterman,but Biden was also known as gaffe machine in 2020 primary,so not all hope is lost.

Classic Donald Trump.Those who like him liked his speech,those who don't,didn't.He kept MAGA folks excited but failed to go even an inch further.Since Trump is an automatic frontrunner as ex-President all he had to do with his announcement was to not screw up and he succeeded in that,so we can call this an alright start for the Donald but not good enough to clear the field outright.

Bad news for AOC.Nobody seems to care for her running for President.She tries to be Bernie Sanders,but unfortunately there is no Bernie energy for her campaign as she draws abysmal crowd to her rally and all media coverage of her campaign ends up being about her previous unhinged statements.AOC is definitely starting as an underdog,but she has been in that position before as well.

She's back!Hillary has a decent start with strong moderate arguments in a primary filled with progressives.Most Democrats are still skeptical about nominating her though,since she is the one who lost to Trump after all,but her core base is excited and happy to have Hillary back in the ring.

"However, I will not be running as a Republican. I stand here today as a Democrat, a decision that I've not taken lightly. And while I know many of you may think this an unserious move... I'm going to tell you why it isn't, and what our nation faces."

"The Republican Party throughout the course of 8 years has left me, along with many other men and women who were once the mainstream of the Republican Party. Today we see a party riddled in lies, cultish behavior, borderline insanity, and most of all, open complacency in betrayal of the Constitution, and the United States of America."

"The Republican Party that my father proudly served with, as did I, is gone. Donald Trump and the movement throughout the nation that not only he has built, but others in both parties as well... has grown to take control of a party I once considered the greatest in American history. Democracy in the United States came close to falling on January 6th, 2021. Donald Trump lit the flame, and assembled a mob to attack the United States Capito; in an attempt to remain in power despite President Joe Biden lawfully, fairly, and solidly winning the 2020 Presidential Election." 

"A rarity in the modern era, I along with many other brave fellow Republicans stood up to those in the party who aided him, or simply turned a blind eye to what happened that day. Many of us were defeated, many of us have been threatened by the MAGA following, but empty threats will not bring our movement to save American democracy down. The Republican Party is dangerous until the influence of Donald Trump and his following is defeated."

"However, my decision to run as a Democrat today will likely mean political failure... despite this, I have chosen to do so to bring forth our movement to it's political evolution. I call on all Republicans, and Independents who now consider themselves left behind by the Republican Party, and feel as if no one can represent them... I ask you to join me in ensuring our voice is heard in a party that isn't controlled by one man. All political parties have their flaws, but when democracy is at stake we must come together in the unwavering defense of America."

"Democrats themselves, and even those on the populist end who consider themselves to be Pro-Russia, Anti-Israel, Anti-Freedom, isolationist... may laugh at our campaign. But the numbers do not lie. Disaffected Republicans and former Republicans made up a sizable portion of President Biden's victory in 2020. Polls have shown anywhere from 10-20% of a coalition of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents would back me if I were to run third party. However unlike Donald Trump who has expressed willingness to do so should the Republican Party ditch him, I will not spoil an election to Anti-Democracy forces. I will attempt to the best of my ability to make our voices heard in a new Democratic Party, against a new Republican Party."

"Our goal may be futile. Our campaign may be defeated. But America has the chance in this very moment to re-define these troubling times. To take a stand and draw the line at, 'Country over party.' That is the goal of our movement. The vast majority of Americans reject the utter nonsense of 'MAGA' and isolationist populism. It is up to us to see it to fruition. Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan were a part of a movement that re-defined politics for decades. Franklin Delano Roosevelt re-defined politics for decades. I stand here today as a fellow Patriot, despite being a Former Republican, and hope to bring upon a new era of American politics, and a new definition of the Democratic Party. Thank you all. God Bless you, and God Bless the United States of America."

Republican Liz Cheney endorses Democrat Elissa Slotkin

Rolls a 8!

The biggest surprise so far.Not only is Liz Cheney running as a Democrat,she is also getting a pretty strong footing in the primary.Mainstream liberal media spent days after her announcement portraying her as a principled fighter for democracy,a unifier,a hero.She brought some disaffected Republicans in the party with her who change party registration to support her bid.Although,she likely won't win its a very interesting news that CHENEY is a force in the DEMOCRATIC party to be reckoned with.

Colorado Governor Polis Announces 2024 Presidential Campaign

"I'm here to tell you, Denver, I want you to be the first to know that I am officially running for President. What I've seen here in Colorado is that despite our differences and our viewpoints, Americans can come together to make sensible common-sense solutions to bread and butter issues. I know what it's like to represent a state divided, a state that's shifting towards the future. As Governor of Colorado, I've worked with Democrats and Republicans from all across the ideological aisle to grow the state's economy, send freedoms back to the people, and modernize our system of income.

What I believe I can offer to the American people is a new kind of Democrat, new kind of politician. The American people have had good reason to be frustrated with national Democrats, and I have experience governing as Liberty Democrat. I know all about upholding our constitutional rights, limiting the powers of the government, and cutting back on inefficiencies that plague all of us. As President, I will bring together a new platform: one focused on facts and modernization.

As President, on day one I will initiate the federal process to decriminalize marijuana possession and finally end the drug wars that have plagued us for a half century, while looking into further actions such as Colorado's decriminalization of psilocybin and other drugs. I will protect the rights of the American people, nominating pro-constitution judges who will support your rights as a person: The right to a safe and legal abortion! The right to choose a path for your children! The right to live free of excessive government taxation! The right to live in this world knowing that you're a free man who has nothing to fear! No longer will the government turn to spy on its citizens. I will work closely with my fellow liberty-minded friends to draft a new Privacy Amendment to the constitution, to further guarantee the American man's rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We will pursue a pro-human rights foreign policy, avoiding direct confrontations and the deaths of American sons and daughters while uplifting foreign nations and furthering our place in the world.

 

America, you are about to see what Colorado can show you. My primary campaign will be completely self-funded, and I'm coming America."

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis to deliver first State of the State speech ...

Gov.Polis ends up as one of those “Who?!” candidates that nobody knows or cares are running for President.He has a lot of work to do if he wants to have a serious shot at winning the nomination.

"My fellow Americans, our country faces an important decision in 2024, one that will have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. At a time of economic instability, geopolitical turmoil, and domestic unrest, we are due for a course correction and a return to strong leadership. The stakes have never been higher but our opportunity has never been greater. We are facing daunting challenges as a nation, but if we unite behind the principles and values that built this country, we can overcome. It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve as Governor of the great state of South Carolina and to represent the United States of America on the world stage as UN Ambassador, and I am here today to announce that I am running for President of the United States, and I humbly ask for you support in this campaign to bring back American leadership."

Former SC governor Nikki Haley says diversifying puts GOP in best position  to lead | WRGT

 

Rolls a 5!

Haley delivered a pretty good and balanced announcement speech,but in a party dominated by Trump loyalists it didn't take too long to get her labeled as a “RINO” and a “traitor to the movement”.Haley is the closest that comes to mainstream Republican in this race but the biggest problem for her could be that it has proven to be a dying breed in the last few years.
