The young upstart, Vivek Ramaswamy scored well in the Faux News R Debate for Vice President several weeks ago.  And he let go of some real doozies. My favorite was when he said that Climate Change is a hoax.  He also claims to be a scientist.  Frump has already said he would make a good Veep. Here is his truth that is so electrifying to the Rs that he is now in third place.

1. God is real. 2. There are two genders. 3. Human flourishing requires fossil fuels. 4. Reverse racism is racism. 5. An open border is no border. 6. Parents determine the education of their children. 7. The nuclear family is the greatest form of governance known to mankind. 8. Capitalism lifts people up from poverty. 9. There are three branches of the U.S. government, not four. 10. The U.S. Constitution is the strongest guarantor of freedoms in history.

Unlike Frump,  Mr. Ramaswamy apparently has made his own money in the bio-tech field and is a billionaire (950 million):

While campaigning for the presidency, Ramaswamy called himself a "scientist" and said, "I developed a number of medicines."[35] His undergraduate degree is in biology, but he was never a scientist; his role in the biotechnology industry was that of a financier and entrepreneur.[35]

In January 2021, Ramaswamy stepped down as CEO of Roivant Sciences and assumed the role of executive chairman.[46][47] In 2021, after he resigned as CEO, Roivant was listed on the Nasdaq via a reverse merger with Montes Archimedes Acquisition Corp, a special purpose acquisition vehicle.[48] In February 2023, Ramaswamy stepped down as chair of Roivant to focus on his presidential campaign.

Ramaswamy remains the sixth-largest shareholder of Roivant, retaining a 7.17% stake.

Roivant has never been profitable.

Lots of folks don't like him.  Carl Rove called him ā€œa performance artistā€ who appeals to the ā€œdark parts of the American psyche,ā€ in the WSJ

Even the Washington Examiner sees through him:

"Vivek Ramaswamy is running a publicity campaign, not a winning campaign. He is running to be a mainstay in right-wing media, and he thinks that doing so means regularly contradicting himself as he shamelessly panders to right-wing audiences he thinks will eat it up. 

He is running as a caricature of what he thinks Republicans want in a candidate, his own very recent history be damned. He is a charlatan, and a snake-oil salesman"

He is also highly educated.  This from Wikepedia:

Ramaswamy attended public schools through eighth grade.[5][21] He then attended Cincinnati's St. Xavier High School, a Catholic school affiliated with the Jesuit order, graduating valedictorian in 2003.[5][23]

In 2007, Ramaswamy graduated from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts, summa cum laude, in biology, and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.[24] At Harvard, he gained a reputation as a brash and confident libertarian.[25] He was a member of the Harvard Political Union,[3] becoming its president.[5] He told The Harvard Crimson that he considered himself a contrarian who loved to debate.[3] While in college, he performed Eminem covers and libertarian-themed rap music under the stage name and alter ego Da Vek.

Eminem publicly asked him to stop it.

Now back to his 10 Truths.

1. God is real.  

OK, you can't prove it but OK

2. There are two genders

In 2004, a researcher named Marie-Anne Felix published a paper outlining a free-living nematode called SB347 that produced not one, not two, but three sexes: males, females, and hermaphrodites. Avocado trees have both female and male flowers on the same plant. This means they can wake up with their female flower opened, go to sleep, and wake up as males the next day

3. Human flourishing requires fossil fuels

NO, human flourishing requires affordable clean energy and your assertion is a hoax..

4. Reverse racism is racism

YES, and reverse parking is parking.

5. An open border is no border

YES, and that is a good thing.

6. Parents determine the education of their children.

Not my parents.

7. The nuclear family is the greatest form of governance known to mankind. 

Don't you just mean family?

8. Capitalism lifts people up from poverty

It's certainly true in your family's case.

9. There are three branches of the U.S. government, not four.  

Nobody said there are four.  Maybe you are hanging around the golf course too much.

10. The U.S. Constitution is the strongest guarantor of freedoms in history. 

YES, so follow it and don't try to change it by saying that citizens under the age of 25 shouldn't be able vote.

Somehow I like the idea of a Frump Ramaswami ticket.

Rama in Hindu is gender neutral meaning pleasing, beautiful, and charming.

Swami in Hindu means someone who is one with himself.

We all know what Frump means. 

Try saying it 10 times without laughing.
