Another Democrat Candidate Bites the Dust, Drops Out of Race After Becoming Viral Sensation
Marianne Williamson has earned a reputation of being a little…well, strange.
It’s difficult to even put her into categories because she is in a category of all her own. She’s some sort of “spiritual leader” but where she derives her beliefs must just come straight from her own mind.
Anyway, she dropped out of the presidential race after failing to gain any support.
Williamson announced her exit from the race Friday:
“I ran for president to help forge another direction for our country,” her announcement stated. “I wanted to discuss things I felt needed to be discussed that otherwise were not. I feel that we have done that.”
“I stayed in the race to take advantage of every possible opportunity to share our message. With caucuses and primaries now about to begin, however, we will not be able to garner enough votes in the election to elevate our conversation any more than it is now. The primaries might be tightly contested among the top contenders, and I don’t want to get in the way of a progressive candidate winning any of them.”
She never stood out above the rest of the crowd other than being a bit on the extreme hippie side. Honestly, her shining point may have been during a debate when she said,
I’m sorry we haven’t talked more tonight about how we’re going to beat Donald Trump. I have an idea about Donald Trump: Donald Trump is not going to be beaten just by insider politics talk. He’s not going to be beaten just by somebody who has plans. He’s going to be beaten by somebody who has an idea what the man has done. This man has reached into the psyche of the American people and he has harnessed fear for political purposes.
So, Mr. President — if you’re listening — I want you to hear me please: You have harnessed fear for political purposes and only love can cast that out. So I, sir, I have a feeling you know what you’re doing. I’m going to harness love for political purposes. I will meet you on that field, and sir, love will win.
