Marianne Williamson for president as a Democrat (1/31/2019)





Marianne Williamson, best-selling author and Oprah Winfrey's spiritual guru, is the latest Democrat to jump into the 2020 presidential field, who says she's running to bring a "moral and spiritual awakening" for America.

--One of her policy agendas is 100 billion (over 10 years) in reparations to African Americans.
--Health Care for all.
--Tax cut for middle class
--Free tuition for public colleges
--Green New Deal



A path to get out from under corporate rule and tyranny.

2. I think some implausible candidates might be running just to get certain topics into

the discussion.

3. No. Just no. No. No. No.

Not another inexperienced, never held elective office, has no idea what it takes but can do it better than anyone narcissist. Especially one who thinks all we need is love, forgiveness, and miracles instead of a nuclear triad. Just no.

5. Maybe the russian bots will promote her candidacy

They can't decide who would be best. Her or Tulsi.

8. I had not heard of her either.

If you watch the video clips you will learn more about her.

9. Great. Candidates will be coming out of the woodwork.

But, she's a Dem, so "bon chance", Marianne!

10. Clip comments on YouTube...

There is quite the following from the spiritual, yoga, green drink group. It is millions of people.

11. I'd probably be wise to follow her, at least about yoga and green drinks.

But, can she run a country?

If she wins the Dem nomination, I'll vote for her in the general. That is all.

12. I don't know who she is other than these clips.

The comments are under the clips about her running for president. There is a group of people very excited about her. That is my point.

14. Williamson already has a fan base

because of the 12 books she’s authored. She talks about God a lot and when she ran for Congress in California, one of the most liberal states in the union. she came in fourth place. She’s stated that being a spiritual guru gives her the qualifications to run for President. I think she has a lucrative con going with the guru stuff and should stick to that.

13. Very interesting ideas she has. Thanks for posting these videos, I'm going to be keeping

an eye on her.

15. Anyone that promotes deep thinking and examination

Of self in the political realm hasn't a chance. I mean where is the snarling us vs. them? If you can't divide you can't be a politician.

Besides this will kill her candidacy:
Williamson advocates for an open border immigration policy, stating that as long as individuals are vetted, they should be allowed to move to the United States-Wiki

Even though I agree that countries shouldn't enslave their citizens to a border confine, she'll be killed on that alone.
