I was listening the radio the other day, and the host was interviewing Vivek Ramaswamy. A lot of the things he had to say made sense to me. I thought to myself that I could easily vote for him.
Then I found out that he believes it’s wrong to kill animals for “culinary pleasure” (i.e. eating them). Holding an opinion like that is a deal breaker for me in a Presidential candidate. Why? If he really believes that it is wrong to kill and eat animals, he will be willing to pass and support laws and policies that make it more difficult to eat meat.
I also don’t think it will matter. I think that the elections going forward are rigged, but will continue to vote anyway, because I may be wrong and it costs me virtually nothing to do so.
