(AmericanProsperity.com) – There might be a new candidate emerging for next year’s Republican presidential nomination. Multi-millionaire businessman, author and commentator Vivek Ramaswamy has political ambitions, and he also has an agenda that could appeal to a lot of fed-up Americans. The biotech entrepreneur can’t stand wokeness, and now he’s wondering if that could put him in the White House.

Thirty-seven-year-old Vivek Ramaswamy is an American success story. The son of immigrants from Kerala, India, he founded a technology company when he was just 21 and, seven years later, launched a pharma company specializing in high-tech drug development. In 2021 he stepped down from that business and published his first book, “Woke, Inc: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam,” which went straight to #2 on the NYT bestseller list.
Since then Ramaswamy has become a regular on Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, and last year he considered running for one of Ohio’s US Senate seats at the midterm elections. He’s been a friend of Senator J. D. Vance (R-OH) since law school. In the end he didn’t enter that race, but now he’s contemplating going for the big prize — the presidency.
Ramaswamy believes he can follow the same path to power as former president Donald Trump did, as an unorthodox candidate who whips up popular enthusiasm. He certainly has the potential. The criticisms he made in his book and on Carlson’s show — Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, wokeness and mask mandates — are issues many Americans feel strongly about. Public opposition to the radical left agenda is rising, and a candidate who can give voice to that opposition could go a long way.
On the other hand, Ramaswamy is young — less than half President Biden’s or Trump’s age — and has no political experience. If he runs next year, he’ll be going up against older, experienced politicians including Trump himself. Some of them, like Trump and Florida governor Ron DeSantis, have a strong track record in office. Will candidates back a youthful newcomer against them? Ramaswamy is hoping so, and he’s getting ready to roll the dice.
