Anti-woke warrior and GOP Presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy is either hungry to trend on Twitter (he still hasn't gotten there yet, though) or he's an idiot. There's always the possibility of both. I'm going for both. To want to lead today's Republican Party, which stands for absolutely nothing except for morally bankrupt ideas, you have to be an idiot with no ambitions for a better future. You'd have to be at that "Meh, fuckit, who cares" phase in life to want to helm that rudderless ship.
Ramaswamy seems to be going for Elon Musk's Twitter strategy, but he'll use it on the entire country. Just take a chainsaw to it, and good luck to the newly unemployed. So, he took to Twitter to say something I'm likening to, May the odds be ever in your favor.
Bless his little heart:
On Day 1, *instantly* fire 50% of federal bureaucrats.
Here's how: if your SSN ends in an odd number, you're fired.
That downsizes government by half. Absolutely *nothing* will break as a result.
It doesn't violate civil service rules because mass layoffs are exempt.
SHUT IT DOWN.
He's not done:
This avoids civil service protections: no bureaucrat can claim their firings were politically motivated.
Further firings can be executed with a chisel, but Step 1 needs to be an unrestrained chainsaw or else it just won't happen.
