It’s the beginning of a new year and you can smell the election season right around the corner and Liberals should be happy.
Do you guys like the sound of Elizabeth Warren 2020? Because she’s the first Presidential candidate that’s jumping out of the gate for Democrats.
Who is Elizabeth Warren
On June 22, 1949, Warren was born Elizabeth Ann Herring in Oklahoma City. The fourth child of Pauline and Donald Jones Herring. Her family is described as a “hanging on the edges of our fingernails” middle-class American family.
Warren’s father had a heart attack which also became the cause of many financial problems from medical bills. On top of this, Herring also received a pay cut because he didn’t finish his previous work. This is probably why Sen. Warren currently has a passion for fighting for the middle class.
Years later, Elizabeth started her academic career at Rutgers University, Newark School of Law, as a lecturer.
Many people don’t know this but Elizabeth Warren was a registered Republican from 1991 to 1996. “”I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets,” Warren said. She started to vote Democratic in 1995 because the Republican party was no longer principled in their conservative approach towards markets and economics.
September 14, 2011, Warren decided to run for the Democratic nomination in the 2012 Massachusetts election for the U.S. Senate.
Elizabeth Warren originally the one who lead the charge asking for the most wealthy and well to do Americans to pay their fair share. President Obama echoed those same ideas that Elizabeth Warren talked about in speeches on the campaign for his re-election.
Is Elizabeth Warren Native American?
I know many of you have heard Donald Trump calling Elizabeth Warren, Pocahontas, and I know you’re curious about her ancestry. Warren claimed to have Native American heritage in the past and Trump and his supporters ridiculed the Massachusetts Senator for it.
In a quest to stop Donald Trump’s attacks, Warren took a DNA test back in 2018 and then released the results to the public. She also released a video on YouTube at the same time explaining her family’s story.
To this day, Warren still stands by her DNA test and heritage no matter what naysayers might think.
Elizabeth Warren 2020
Warren hit Iowa this weekend during the government shutdown over Trump’s wall where she tackled the current economic crisis, healthcare, and education, affecting middle-class Americans. “We need to return politics to the people,” she said.
One of the first questions she faced in Iowa was of her heritage and ancestry. Warren was prepared to answer these questions. “I’m not a person of color, I’m not a citizen of a tribe. Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry. Tribes and only tribes determine tribal citizenship and I respect that difference,” Warren said.

Elizabeth Warren went on to say “I can’t stop Donald Trump from what he’s going to do, I can’t stop him from hurling racial insults, I don’t have any power to do that, but what I can do is I can be in this fight for all of our families.”
These quotes from Warren will surely spark even more outrage from the far-right but I’m sure that will not bother her.
Fighting for the middle-class
Sen. Warren also talked about how America is only working for those on the top and this is the moment we need to make major changes in this country. “I am grateful to America, down to my toes,” she said
Warren is a fighter and that’s why she’s a good fit for Democrats in 2020. Some Republicans like SE Cupp thinks Democrats can find a better candidate but I don’t agree with her. I think Sen. Warren is perfect.
FiveThirtyEight has a great article on how Warren could win the Democratic Primary. It explains in detail how lots of small donors give big to Warren’s campaign and where her ideology stands compared to Hillary Clinton and President Obama.
So guys, until a better candidate comes along, Democrats should support someone who will fight for them, we should be driving around with our Elizabeth Warren 2020 bumper stickers at this very moment.
If someone else better comes along, we can always pull them off. Lol.
