Kanye West wants you to donate to his campaign so he can become the 46th POTUS, and he’s making the pitch by laying out his positions on various issues, and one thing’s clear … he’s playing to both Democrats and Republicans.
Ye, who calls his platform, “Creating a Culture of Life,” is seeking contributions ranging from $20 to a grand. As for his positions, the first is revealing … “Restore faith and revive our Constitutional commitment to freedom of religion and the free exercise of one’s faith, demonstrated by restoring prayer in the classroom including spiritual foundations.”
That seems to be a cornerstone of his campaign … freedom of religion, which for him includes a hard-line, antiabortion stance. This position clearly targets Republican voters.
But, then he pivots to the Dems, promising to reduce household debt and student loan debt. He also wants to restructure the educational system, by opening it up to “at-risk and vulnerable populations.”
He takes a stand on policing, promoting policies that “treat all Americans the same, regardless of race, color, or ethnicity.” And, he promises to protect the environment by promoting clean air and water as well as renewables.
And, then he pivots back to Republican voters, promising to “place Americans’ best interest first and foremost.” He also vows to “Maintain a strong national defense.”
Kanye says he’s not a spoiler … he’s in it to win it. This turn shows he’s trying to win votes by traversing party lines.
Again … in a close election, he could make a difference. The question … who would he help and who would he hurt?
