Vivek Ramaswamy, the Republican presidential candidate, did not hold back as he took to social media to criticize Mike Pence’s recent remarks. Pence, the former vice president, had the audacity to speak out against “populist” candidates such as Ramaswamy and former President Trump. Can you believe it? It’s like Pence is allergic to genuine conservative values!
Speaking at an event in New Hampshire, Pence had the nerve to claim that populism is not compatible with traditional conservatism. Well, I hate to break it to you, Pence, but the people have spoken. Populism is what the American people want and need. We’re tired of the same old politicians who only care about their own interests. We want someone who understands the concerns of everyday Americans and fights for them.
But Pence didn’t stop there. He went on to say that our party’s relevancy will be confined to history books if we embrace populism. Seriously, Pence? Are you living in some alternate reality? Populism is what’s keeping our party alive and thriving. It’s what connects us with the hardworking men and women who make this country great. If we abandon populism, we’ll become nothing more than a relic of the past.
It’s not 1980 anymore. It’s painful to watch old-school Republicans recite slogans they memorized in a bygone era. The thing that made Reagan cool was he stood up to the *orthodoxies of his time* without fear. Sadly his disciples today think they honor him by parroting what he… https://t.co/AFppZH0GUo

And here comes Ramaswamy, swooping in with a dose of reality. He called out Pence for reciting slogans from a bygone era. It’s true, Reagan was cool because he stood up to the orthodoxies of his time. But now, we face different and grave threats to our liberty and prosperity. We have the Deep State, Communist China, and government-tech censorship to worry about. It’s time for a new generation of conservatives to rise up and tackle these challenges head-on.
Ramaswamy was absolutely right when he said that Pence is out of touch. It seems like Pence just woke up from a deep slumber and realized that the world has changed. We can’t rely on the same tired strategies that worked 40 years ago. The survival of the American experiment is at stake, and we need leaders who are willing to adapt and confront the threats we face today.
So, Pence, step aside and let the true conservatives take the lead. Ramaswamy understands the needs of the American people, and he’s not afraid to fight for them. It’s time for a new era of conservatism, one that embraces populism and puts the people first. The future of our party and our country depends on it.
