Politician and veteran Tulsi Gabbard has been on my radar for quite some time now and yesterday my wife and I had the privilege and honor to meet and speak with her at an event for the AAPI, (led by the amazing Chloe Bennett) called RUN (Represent Us Now: a movement created to unifying the Asian American community).
Tulsi is a human being whose politics align with everything I believe in and stand for. And she did not disappoint. Her opposition of interventionist wars, her belief in Medicare for all, her pledge to her office as a civil servant, her passion, and empathy for the potential of our country was nothing short of exceptional and inspiring. If only, all our leaders shared this sort of authenticity perhaps we would be eons away from the current turbulence we find ourselves in. Her integrity was astonishingly infectious and I left with a renewed vigor to do what I can to see equality reign.
I just hope she runs in 2020. She is EXACTLY what this country needs. And she damn well has my vote. Proudly. – Brian Buckley
