Marianne Williamson… I viewed the formal announcement of her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President. I contributed to her campaign. Then I set my oven timer to 22 minutes, and meditated.
Here’s the video. Watch it. See what YOU do.
Can Williamson Surpass Sanders?
Anyone who knows me or reads my blog is aware that I love Bernie Sanders. Don’t worry, I still admire and support every wonderful thing Bernie does for the nation and our democracy. But now, I also entertain visions of President Williamson and Vice President Sanders. Or vice-versa.
Like Sanders, Marianne Williamson is a bold, policy-driven Progressive. You may go to Williamson’s campaign website and see exactly where she stands on the issues. Nothing is vague or fuzzy. Williamson is unafraid to publicly declare her Progressive political platform in detail. Of particular interest are her policies on the following issues:
- Child Advocacy
- Peace-Based National Security
- Native American Justice
- Racial Reconciliation & Healing
You may compare Williamson’s platform to other Presidential hopefuls on my new 2020 Progressive Candidates page.
By the way, the Williamson website is a thing of beauty. It’s elegant, functional, and logically organized — perfectly reflecting Marianne, herself. I don’t know who designed it, but it’s probably the best campaign website I’ve seen. (And I’ve looked at thousands.)
Williamson’s latest book is A Politics of Love: Handbook for a New American Revolution. The hardcover edition releases April 23, 2019.
Disclosure: Now that Amazon pays it’s warehouse workers a fair wage, I’m a proud Amazon Associate, and could earn a few pennies — if you purchase a book from one of my links. Thanks.
Wait Until the Debates!
Marianne Williamson has never held an elected office, yet we may be hopeful that she’ll make it to the Democratic Primary Debates. DNC Chairman Tom Perez says the new debate rules are “committed to a low qualifying threshold for early debates to avoid blocking legitimate candidates.” The attainment of certain levels for both national polling AND grassroots funding are prerequisites.
So picture a woman speaking from the Democratic Debate stage — who has 35 years of experience as an international lecturer. Imagine a woman who fluently bridges the boundaries of psychology, spirituality, and activism — with well-researched facts and logic. Envision a woman who will galvanize every protective, nurturing, mothering woman in America (and men with ears) — with a mission for child advocacy and saving the world. You are seeing Marianne Williamson.
You may catch Marianne’s riveting address to American women, and women around the world, in the video below. But I must issue a warning: You’ll want to watch it more than once!
