Trump-Ramasamy Ticket GOP’s Best Bet In 2024; US Events Will Affect The Whole World

By Kumar David

Prof. Kumar David

Donald Trump is vulgar; even cultivated Republicans see him as a gross Fallstaff like persona. He is a thinly veiled racist but WASP Americans don’t seem to mind.  Obama and Mitchel’s worst side to WASPs was not that they were black but blacks who often outshone white intellectuals. Despite all this among Republicans Trump already leads by leagues, long before the Primary Season for November 2024 even kicks off. Unless the courts obstruct him (unlikely because the stooge US Supreme Court eats out of his hand) or the good lord takes mercy on America and strikes him down with a bolt of lightning, you can be certain that he will be the GOP nominee for the presidency. 

There is more bad news for the Democrats because Vivek Ramasamy (Ram), Trump’s likely running mate (recently there has been a suggestions that Trump may choose a woman running mate) is a glib populist demagogue who will mop the floor with tongue-tied Kamala Harris, Biden’s vice-president. The 38 year old Ram though is a fake. His views on climate change fly in that face of science of which he knows bugger-all, nor has he an iota of knowledge of global and domestic economics. Conceding all this, a Trump-Ram ticket will nevertheless be an uncomfortable challenge for the Democrats.

The 81-year Biden (Trump is 79) would be wise to bow out and make way for a younger candidate and a new running mate. Michele Obama is only 59, Elizabeth Warren 74 and Robert Kennedy’s grandson Joseph E Kennedy only 42 years old. His grand-uncle JFK was 43 when elected president. With so much available I am surprised that America is still hankering after geriatrics!

But the problem is much bigger. The debt of the US Federal Government currently is $32 trillion or more than 120% of GDP. Tax hikes alone are rarely enough to stimulate the economy and pay down debt. Spending cuts despite their painful effects on employment and welfare are another way. Bailouts and defaults are also a way of easing debt problems but have obvious drawbacks. Governments often issue new debts in form of bonds to ease the pressure. The US experiment with “Quantitative Easing” is a way of buying back bonds. Every tool has its downside, economic (employment, business confidence and inflation) and political. Global economic output, undoubtedly influenced by the spurt in technology, has grown from $40 trillion in in 2000, in then-current dollars, to $85 trillion in 2020 in now-current dollars. Even after making allowance for changes in the nominal dollar values in the two different time periods and for the Asian century which now includes India, this is an impressive increase in global economic growth. Trends in the US economy have an effect on the whole world – East Asia (China included), South Asia including India, Eastern and Western Europe of course, and you name it, everywhere.

Every option that is adopted in the US has serious implications for the rest of the world. It is still the world’s financial and military top-dog and the rest of us cannot remain unscathed when things begin to buckle in the citadel. This is too big a topic for me to tackle this pieces but I will confine myself to two questions which are influenced by changing global circumstances; (i) What kind of a democracy do we desire in Lanka, (ii) what kind of  an economic arrangement do we want for Lanka. The minimal answer to the first question is we want the right to change government through elections every say five years; we want liberal democratic values to prevail; we want the state to be answerable to the people; and we want the physical security of the minorities to be guaranteed by the state. That’s the easy question.

As I have pointed out on a previous occasion there are only two realistic options for the next government in Sri Lanka which I broadly identify as the Anura Kumara JVP-NPP option and some consortium gathered around the UNP institutions. This second is likely to be led by Ranil (RW) with a prominent role assigned to Sajith. The cohorts temporarily aligned with Sajith are at root UNP and Sajith sans these UNP and ex-UNP associates is nothing. Both power blocks have skeletons in their cupboard. To this day the JVP has not acknowledged its viciously violent past nor its racist inheritances from Wijeweera and Somawansa. RW is trigger happy and has a reputation for unleashing indiscriminate violence on political opponents, but not on the ruthless scale of JR. Therefore on the side of political democracy there are many amends that both contenders for governmental power need to make.

Planning Commission

Be that as it may the much greater challenge facing the country is my point previous point (ii), the economic challenge. The economic programme must be growth oriented, it must be export oriented, it will have to identify and address the needs of different sectors (agriculture, industry, technology, energy, plantations, cash-crops fisheries etc.), taxes on the well-to-do and on companies will have to increase, and the programme will unavoidably impose some burden on the masses and so on. The story is not new but Lanka needs to adopt a bold new approach. One option is to set up a Planning Commission.

The country needs a planning commission to coordinate the diverse imperatives of this programme. Here is an edited summary from the website of the Indian Planning Commission

“Since 1947, the Indian economy has been premised on the concept of planning. This has been carried through the Five-Year Plans, developed, executed, and monitored by the Planning Commission. The Prime Minister as the ex-officio Chairman, the commission has a nominated Deputy Chairman, who holds the rank of a Cabinet Minister prior to this the allocation of state resources was based on schematic patterns rather than a transparent and objective mechanism. The Narendra Modi government announced the dissolution of the Planning Commission, and its replacement by a think tank called the National Institution for Transforming India.”

If you distrust Modi and his motives you are in good company, but that’s another matter.

The point is that Sri Lanka needs to take its cue from half-a-century of sound practice in India and set about the business of establishing a Planning Commission to address the several issues raised in this essay. I will say no more on this now and invite comment from readers.

[Several regular readers of my column have inquired why my established weekly routine has been broken. Well, time passes, age marches on and health decays. Nevertheless I will try to keep up a fortnightly offering].

    trump will lose and if he selects ramasamy as his running mate that will be a blunder and confirm to american women what they already think about him as a misogynist pussy grabber. His running mate should be a woman and a woman he can get along with.Sarah palin?

    Kumar is talking of america as the most important of all in the world that can change the world.He has forgotten that china is the other elephant in the room and a one man show Xi who can do whatever he decidesWhat goes on in his mind is crucial.He has no congress or the senate blocking him. Also there is another elephant the EU.Decision making is difficult because a consensus of 27 countries is needed,but when decisions are made even late than never,they have a big impact.

    No, Trump won’t take Ram as running mate. Reason: Even WASPS are intelligent about Climate Change. They merely use it as a facade to trump down non-Wasps and Chinese. And Ramasamy doesn’t understand that, and embarrassingly tries to use all kinds of twisted and erroneous rhetoric to impress them.

    Sri Lanka ALWAYS had a Planning Commission. Yes, ever since independence, the big-shots sat planning to showcase Lankan brains on the world-stage. Country money for tertiary education was all about that. Country culture and fashion was all about that, with Sri Lanka’s greatest and only innovation being embarrassingly Mrs. World. From education, it went on to commercial and business overseas enterprise. Vast sums of country money were taken out for the Lankan entrepreneurs to showcase their brains on world stage. Finally, the whole lot of the money of the hardworking-suffering-Lankan-Masses was placed on the ultimate of everything-everywhere-all-at-once, viz, the global stock & bonds exchange – both mainstream and alternate. Alas! All was lost of course, at each and every instance.

Instead, the Economic planning was done on the Political Stage and Election Platform since 1956 and the PHENOMENAL RESULT could be seen by one-and-all!!! BANKRUPTCY 03/2022 – at last, though it was long-time COMING!!!???

She loves to keep saying that she went to public schools as a little girl, and thanks all the gov. services given to her. Truth is she probably went to private tuition classes courtesy the taxes of the hardworking-masses of Tamil Nadu…her uncle being chief minister and all.

    .
    Please keep going with your articles. It’s not you age alone that makes it difficult for you to guide and inspire us; so many surprises get sprung upon us that it is difficult for me (let me not speak for others) to keep up with what is happening.
    .
    The reference you made in you last article to Vivek Ramasamy, caused me to read up quite a bit about him. Ramona TF may be right in feeling that she will not be made Trump’s running-mate, but it is interesting that a man who actually speaks Tamil has got that far in the USA,

      I agree that Kamala has not had the impact that we had hoped she would, but let’s hope that Joseph E Kennedy or Michelle Obama (so much younger) get nominated by the Republicans. I’m sure that our speculations must be wide of the mark, but it is good for guys like us who live in Lanka at least read up a few new things about the US.
      .
      As for what’s happening here, I intend visiting the NPP headquarters in Pelawatte again in a few days. You speak of the past of the JVP section of the NPP,. See what I have unearthed in the last comments on this article:

        What does our JOKER commenter from Bandarawella caves, know about US politics? hE JUST focuses abundantly on the surface issues but leaving a comment here.
        Trump the clown has ruined that country as no other leaders during his tenure. This is fact.
        Eruopeans were vehementaly against him, from the day of his election. How he stood against OBAMA-HEALTH REFORMS should be the biggest blunder in his politics.
        Many european leaders did not even talk abou tthe bugger because it was beyond talks, the guy was very unwelcome in europe. People hated him. At the time, the bugger lately caught by imprisonment, there are europeans, that were ready to celebrate it louder than they could.
        .
        So the Biden administration didn’t have time to pretend everything that the Trump clown’s administration had deliberately done in many areas. The aftermath of TRUMP adminstration was similar to debris left by a tsunami disaster.

          I learned this from one of my neighbors, an EU parliamentarian. He revealed that CLOWN’s administration had completely undermined trans-atlantic relations, so trade relations between Europe and the United States were not working properly under Trump AD..So pointing the finger at VICE PRESIDENT, KAMALA HARIS is not fair because yet today, they have to iron out what TRUMP adminstration destroyed. Looking at the manner, CLOWN#S treated its people in covid-crisis was beyond ethics and morals.- that was the best evidence to corner the bugger forever. However white supremacists are beyond care in terms of them politcal blindness.
          :
          That is known to any european nations. Some provinces in US had no enough health divices to help out the dying people. It was all because the lack of proper decisions taken by TRUMP. However, as is the case with SINHALA BUDDHIST in our hell, AMERICANS, specially white supremacists are after REPUBLICs regardless of anything. They are so blind and hateful against afro-americans yet today.

        Dear Mahila,
        .
        Ramaswamy is proved to have his roots in India, but he was born and raised in the United States. There is no doubt that he will have no chance of becoming the GOP candidate in the final round. Those stupid white supremacists aka republicans in that part of the world come from baby boomers and x generations.
        Even if CLOWN Trump destroys their health with the COVID pandemic, they would like to see him re-elected. That is the general trend of that society which is driven by color blindness.
        .
        By education, Vivek Ramaswamy is a geneticist and human biologist like me, however, his pro-Republican stance is beyond people’s thinking. Nowhere on Earth, people would support republicans if they were younger generations.

          The kind of people who represent Republicans AKA elephants as they call them, says it all.

          If you meant Kamala as the one who speaks Tamil, I don’t think either of these candidates know the basics of their parent’s language. However, there are Indians everywhere who are known as powerful countries that rule the world, giving Indians a lot of power to be proud of.

          Instead, our people themselves cut their neck by supporting. I hated Premadasa Sr. in the late 80’s and since his first election I hated Mahinda Paraya even more because I foresaw the danger ahead of us. People are speechless today. They dont yet know that they are the ones who brought them back. Our people would never learn from the past. Good riddance to bad rubbish !

    Dear Rational Thinkers,
    Our JVP spokesperson has ignored to our crucial questions regarding JVP’s silence regarding their affinity to SINHALA BUDDHISM and sinhala buddhist monks. As usual “Sinhala_Man” has been paying dodging reactons to the question raised by our NEUTRAL commnter RAJ: Not a single answer being made by this joker to my questions either.

    This is the level of transparceny and accoutablitiy that a self-proclaimed former SCHOOL teacher maintains in this regard yet today.

    … is this no pathetic ? This man should better take treatments from MULLERIYA sooner than later. Either he should leave from CT or come with constructive arguments regarding the TRUE face of JVP-NPP.

    With the known revealiation of Lalkantha to have met SODOMITE Ghanasara in public caused a huge turmoil among the many that are highly ambuguious to whom they elect next. As usual, not any repsonbile ones focus on the matter. JVP stays mum on this as usual.

    If JVP-NPP would not be clear abou tthese issues, no doubt, SLPP led groups would get a mandate to their masturbation-dominated politics and push this nation from frying pan to the fire.

    I am currently in touch with Z-genzers and Millenials of the country to ascertain who would be their choice for next election, most of them are agreeing to allow RANIL to continue, no matter COUNTRY #S KNOWN barbarians would predict in against him. Sure, the country is filled with sininster forces than the opposite. SO the option is to go with them and do some politics not to starve the nation. First thing is to uplift their economic situations and then to move to go into radical changes.
    .
    The truth is there is no leader, other than RANIL, in the country currently to work with all sinister forces equally. AKD would be good at crying on public stage, however his is too deficient to meet the expecations of the people that suffer today. RANIL should pave the way JVPrs someday to do their job, if they are really word-word real.

      The JVP did not stay mun on Lal Kantha meeting Gnanasara. LK confirmed it to me, a total stranger, knowing that I was committed to openness.

    There was lots of optimism specially among American Indians with the Biden_Kamala ticket. But Kamala Harris is a disaster. She failed to capitalise on failing Biden. She could have easily stepped but decided to sit on the side lines. She is not an orator and her knowledge of worldly affairs seems zilch.

    VK on the other hand is shooting his mouth and over aggressive. He has no experience in public office.

    Unlike UK , USA has not warmed upto candidates of Indian origin. Even Canadians warm up to Indians/Sri Lankans more than Americans.

    Trump is better off with a young female VP ticket. But a female VP may be a distraction for Trump. borrowing his own quotation, he may “grab her by the pussy” when ever left alone :)

      India and Canada are in the spotlight these days. According to media reports, Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar has “exposed” ‘terror-haven’ (?) Canada during his meeting with QUAD counterparts. Seriously! Jaishankar may have been born yesterday. Canada is not a terror state, but India is.
      For Jaishankar’s information, India created, trained, funded and nurtured the world’s most ferocious terrorist group, LTTE, in the Indian soil, and masterminded all its terrorist activities. LTTE’s theoretician Anton Balasingham freely and openly operated from Britain. (India and CIA was even behind Easter Sunday Attack and 2022 July insurrection in Sri Lanka with am aim to incite racial and religious riots.)
      With the direct backing of India, LTTE supporters held numerous protests, even displaying tiger flags, in Canada and elsewhere. I can never remember India calling Canada a terrorist state back by then.
      For India, this is a moment of “What goes around, comes around”. Enjoy!

        Canada is a haven for all those who flee from their birth country which includes former LTTE cadre, too. Also, Canada is a country that respects freedom of speech, peaceful assembly and diverse opinion. However, it may be news to India that, unlike India, Canada does not tolerate any terrorist activities in her soil. If LTTE supporters enjoyed freedom of speech in Canada, supporters of Khalistan Movement should also have similar rights.
        Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has every right to express his strong opposition to India exercising terrorism in Canadian soil. He is committed to protect all who sought protection in Canada. When many countries deny entry to Muslims from West Asia, it is Mr. Trudeau, (only him) who warmly received and absorbed them into Canadian society. Together, Mr. Trudeau and NDP leader Mr. Jagmeet Singh changed Canada for the better.
        Mr. Trudeau is well liked in his country (though not as much as Mr. Putin, but more popular than Mr. Biden). There is no doubt that he will be re-elected in 2025 as Canada never had any leader as down-to-earth as him and also someone who feels the pulse of people despite their origins. I wish him all the very best from the bottom of my heart!

            Mr. Justin Trudeau has been the Leader of the Liberal Party since 2013 and the Prime Minister of Canada since 2015. Do you know how many leaders the Conservative Party has had since 2015? Five!!! They are still testing a prime ministerial material.
            The majority of Millennials and Gen Z support Mr. Jagmeet Singh and his NDP. However, in the past elections, the NDPers voted the Liberal Party to avoid Conservatives coming into power. Mr. Trudeau is little behind his promises to the younger generation. But, people still trust him and the Liberal Party.

              I gave some numbers for popularity.
              Correct me if I am wrong.

        Canada missed the gentler approach. India is no more weak.
        The heat that would be generated should have been considered before going public.

          None seemed to have noticed when some months ago the Canadian kid was told off in style in public by the Chinese head of state. No harsh words, but showed him where he belonged.
          Had the story been leaked to the media to hit the headlines and then Canada asked India for an explanation in private, that would have been neat.
          But the kid is in search of quick fame.

    Champo,
    Freedom of speech exists not only in Canada but also in Europe. However, it cannot be done according to the habits of our hell. Even mainstream visual media channels like Derana TV, Hiru TV continue to support your former godfathers, the Rajapaksa dogs. There are no people to destroy those rallies like Rajapakse monuments were destroyed on May 9, 2022. why is that ?when will our people be realized ? If people are resistent enough those rodiyas including Namal, should be welcome with Montov cocktail baskets so that they cannot hold baskets. Our people real grass eaters, they would take another few decades to act as such.

      LM,
      .
      I;m tired of responding to you. Please see what I have already said in comments here:

      This solution I would suggest: Lal Kantha is likely to contest in Kandy, When elections are held, see what chances are available to vote for the NPP, but now for Lal Kantha.
      .
      My vote is with the NPP. The vast majority of NPP supporters and candidates are strongly opposed to Gnanasara and all brands of racism.

        SM the NIC hunter, –
        you may defend the murderers a day, but you would not succeed defending them forever. Basta.
        .
        Although you always ignore my questions, we are now tired of waiting for your replies (not kohedayanne malle pol style) as we thought you would come up with constructive responses to the questions raised by RAJ-UK.
        .
        EXPOSED !!!YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT TO THAT KOPI KADE DAYAWATHI. Good at gossips CLEARLY nothing beyond that. That is evident.

        If other leaders were alive, I wouldn’t agree with RW, however we lack leaders at the moment. That is the reality.
        RW manages the debries left behind by DOGs prima to the eyes of masses, though crying babies disagree. CRYING BABIES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THAT FO RTHE LAST 57 YEARS.

        Everything in the country was looted by a rascal family and however with the risk of RW as the interior president , he has been able to settle the dust. I dont need your agreeement to understand it. Your kind of idiots coming from baby booming generation are the curse to this country ruined by Rajapakshes. This means not that I am against all in that age group.

        Yesterday, I was driving back home from a business trip and I was very happy to hear that Sri Lanka reached one million tourists. It will be 1.5 millions by the end of the year.
        Tourism industry, software industry and agriculture could revive the economy which was ruined by dogs over the last 15 years.

        If the B***+ PUTHAs (A Rajapkashe bastard sons) led govt got such achievements, they WOLD go with sinhala_people in milk rice eating session all week long causing anxities in naïve people.

          CBK and RW never celebrated the way MEDAMULANA B****puthas did. That alone is good enough to realize the greater contrast between two category of leaders.
          .
          .That’s how they deceived and destroyed the nation. Now you are talking about RW being called a SODOMITE but never heard anyone having used to slander at GHANASRA???? do you know that over 80% of SL buddhist temples are filled with PAEDOPHILEs and SEX criminals, even if our grass eaters dominated lanka constantly offer them free food ?

          Did you ever read the MEDICAL reports leaked out from some paediatric clinics few years ago?
          , this was on the rectal bleeding and haemtoms and its etiology of CHILD MONKS.

          You are a sinhala_man on PAPER but not knowing sinhala enough to comprehend many things, that make you a REAL CLOWN… ohoma yang…
          . So how can you see it beyond ? Can I argue with the blind about the size of LOTUS tower ?

            THERE ARE NO WORDS LEFT WHEN THE PEOPLE WERE MANIPULATED to ATTACK RW AND CBK FOR NO GOOD REASON. THAT MAN VICTOR IVON WAS ALSO HIRED FOR THAT::::: THAT IS HOW THEY WON POPULARITY:
            ALL THOSE INSULTED THEM ARE GETTING CORNERED TODAY: TRUTHS WILL SUCCEED ONEDAY. THAT IS TRUTH.
            :
            See how dangerous levels you have fallen. MULLERIYAWA IS WAITING FOR YOU ISKOLEMAHAHTHAYA: WE ARE FED UP OF YOUR LUDICRACIES: If you would go there, even MAD men would fall dead NOT being able to digest you.

            Bad company and association seem to have brought you down more than ever. Do you ever think PEOPLE at large will welcome JVPr in Sri Lanka as alternative force?
            Of course they will oppose it, but if the people vote for them as ruling party, things would get cornered again – period.

        Dear Self-Proclaimed ISKOLEMAHATHTHAYA

        (LM and many others are forced to believe that you can’t be a guru at all), btw, I remain a Sri Lankan passport holder regardless of what you advertise to yourself about my identities.Why on earth you want me to be a GERMAN CITIZEN?
        .
        Thanks for the link: This I like the way you refer it.
        .
        I have read all the COMMENTS regarding meeting of LK and Sodoymite Ghansara with great care, but none of them are consistent with the questions raised by me or Raj…. Are these consistent with a guru who claims to be a scholar?

        KOHEDAYA YANNE MALLE POL (Truly Incongruous)

        Wake up and see what others are saying about your COMMENTs. I don’t mind you voting NPP like you did last time, but let others be clear about themselves and their true intentions. That is my kind request to you.
        .
        So we think you should see a psychitric doctor soon.

        It is not true that you do not use foul language to attack us. Is something true or true that rolls off your tongue?
        .**************************************************************
        Who attacked me and the OC as “ashhole, disgusting moron, braunies, stupid LM, and everything your forked tongue allowed”. Are you really in a good mental state? When are your family going to drive away you? Everything you did for that HP reverberates back to you today. See, the truth will prevail… that’s just the truth.

        May readers be blessed with brains to unerstand this SELF-PROCLAIMED pundit. !!!
