He may look like he just got his driver’s license last week and he has zero chance of becoming the next President of the United States, but Vivek Ramaswamy is still an interesting person to pay attention to this election cycle. He’s the first member of the Millennial generation to run for president so that alone makes him sort of interesting to listen to. It gives us an idea of what the future generations of leaders are going to be thinking and doing. Just this week, he gave a very honest assessment of the transgender social contagion that’s gripping the nation.

Ramaswamy noted on Twitter the other day that 5% of Americans under the age of 30 now identify as transgender. Just five years ago, only 0.6% of Americans under 30 identified as trans. “This is a social contagion of a mental health epidemic,” he stated.

Polling at around 3% and tied with Mike Pence, Ramaswamy doesn’t appear to be afraid to wade into the social issues that other candidates are mostly avoiding. He says that young people are hungry for a cause, and that’s part of what’s driving some of the push for these left-wing agenda items.

He told Fox Business, “So woke this, or gender ideology, or the climate cult, that will fill the void.”

(Total side note: He called it the ‘climate cult!’ *Blush*)

“What we need to do for the next generation… is fill that void of identity with a vision of American national identity that runs so deep that it dilutes the woke agenda to irrelevance.”

As we said, Ramaswamy has zero shot at the White House next year. But if future leaders are as sharp as him, that should be enough cause to hope for the country’s future.
