About Me

I am looking forward to engaging with likeminded others about important issues related to 2020 and beyond.

Tulsi "is now pro-choice and pro-same-sex-marriage" (The New Yorker, November 6, 2017 issue)

"When Gabbard entered politics, she was only twenty-one, and in those early years she was a social conservative, pro-life and active in the fight against same-sex marriage. She is now pro-choice and pro-same-sex-marriage: on these and other issues, she has evolved..."

Due to her time in Iraq, Gabbard is in favor of a non-intervention approach to foreign policy to prevent another FUBAR. This is why she went to meet Trump and Assad:

"Gabbard agreed to meet with Trump to make her case for a noninterventionist foreign policy. A few months later, she flew to Syria and met with Bashar al-Assad, who is presiding over a brutal civil war; she and he seemed to agree that the United States should not intervene to stop it."

She is a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus in the House.

Tulsi has a 100% for her voting record and endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT lobby organization in the country.

"With the many challenges facing the LGBT community, we're honored to count Tulsi as an ally in standing up for issues of fairness. From her cosponsorship of the Equality Act to supporting marriage equality for same-sex couples and fighting for persons with HIV/AIDS, we applaud Tulsi's commitment to fundamental equal rights for all." - Mike Mings, Director Human Rights Campaign PAC

Tulsi has received a 100% rating for her voting record in favor of LGBT legislation:

Tulsi directly addresses her views on the LGBTQ+ community:

At a 2012 meeting of Hawai’i Democratic Party LGBT caucus, Tulsi addressed her opposition to same sex marriage in her youth and her complete evolution on this important issue. She openly and wholeheartedly apologizes for her wrongdoing and the harm she had caused the LGBT community, asking for but not expecting their forgiveness.

“On #EqualityDay, we recognize that many LGBT Americans still face discrimination everyday. This is wrong, and defies our American principles of equality, justice, and individual freedom. The #EqualityAct would extend comprehensive anti-discrimination protections to LGBT Americans” https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/1011701902923493376

On LGBT Bullying: "I have advocated to end LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. School should always be a safe place for children.” https://twitter.com/tulsigabbard/status/764903670517346304

Then why hasn't Harris refuted one word? And DINOs do not have 100% ratings from HRC and NARAL.

DINOs do not have 100% ratings from NARAL and HRC, nor are they usually endorsed by the latter.

Rhetoric 101. "I don't believe you're a racist, but..." means you're about to imply he's a racist.


Considering Harris has attacked Joe repeatedly by implying he is a racist who "worked with segregationists" during the first and second debates, I find it amusing you judge Gabbard so harshly for allegedly criticizing fellow Democrats - a charge for which you have yet to provide exact quotes in context and impeccable sources.

At her 2012 Dem convention speech, DNC Vice Chair Rep. Gabbard praised Pres. Obama & VP Biden.

Then Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee Representative Tulsi Gabbard gave high public praise to Barack and Joe during her 2012 convention speech. Gabbard has been in the National Guard since 2003 and served honorably in the Iraq War. She, like many soldiers, are loyal to those who have done good for those who have served. I believe Gabbard respects and likes Joe very much. No backstabber here.

'At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, Gabbard praised President Obama, a fellow-Hawaiian, and Vice-President Joe Biden, along with their wives, as “the strongest advocates our military families could ever have.”'

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/11/06/what-does-tulsi-gabbard-believe

Tulsi showed her loyalty to former VP Joe when she surprised many by fiercely defending Joe after Harris attacked by implying Joe is a racist during the first debate. I believe she helped Joe when no other candidate would defend him.

Some of what Iraq War veteran and National Guard member since 2003 said about Assad:

From her web site:

"There is evidence that both the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad as well as the armed opposition groups aligned against him have used chemical weapons (CW) during the Syrian war."

From video below (8 minutes in):

Anderson Cooper: "Just on a factual basis, Bashar al-Assad is a murderer and a torturer, do you not agree with that?"

Tulsi Gabbard: "I don't dispute that."

"Not rocket science" to see neither Bernie or Tulsi is responsible for foreign social media content.

Thank you. I deeply appreciate that, JonLP24.

One of my favorite moments during the campaign...because it shows VP Joe Biden appreciates Bernie and does not shun him but rather shows him due respect in public.

At least she never implied the Democratic frontrunner for POTUS is a racist in front of millions...

Rhetoric 101. "I don't believe you're a racist, but..." means you're about to imply he's a racist.


"hopefully dems will learn from that experience" at the next debate although I am not holding my breath.

He seems like a very nice guy from a rival Hawaiian political dynasty.

I wonder if he'll ever be chosen to be Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee like Representative Gabbard was for three years running (2013-2016) until she resigned?

"Tulsi Gabbard rules out running as an independent presidential candidate"

Washington Post:

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Thursday she will not run as an independent candidate if she fails to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

"I will not," the Hawaii Democrat told CNN's Jim Sciutto on "Newsroom." "No, I have ruled that out."

"I'm going to continue to focus on moving our campaign forward, continuing this grassroots campaign, continuing to deliver our message to the American people and ask for their support," she added.

Gabbard failed to qualify for the next Democratic debate in September after making the first two debates. She reached the fundraising threshold, but did not meet the Democratic National Committee's polling minimum to qualify.

Are you saying you believe Tulsi, a former DNC Vice Chair (2013-16) & Iraq War veteran is a traitor?
