Earlier today, we disclosed Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s resignation from the DNC and her endorsement of Bernie Sanders for President. She has created an official video, entitled “The Judgment to Lead: Why I’m Endorsing Bernie Sanders” in which she gives her reasons and full endorsement. See the transcript of the video below. Enjoy! Please share – this is huge!
Aloha. I’m Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
As a veteran of two Middle East deployments, I know firsthand the cost of war.
I know how important it is that our commander-in-chief has the sound judgment required ….. to know when to use America’s military power–and when not to use that power.
As vice chairman of the DNC I am required to stay neutral in Democratic primaries, but I cannot remain neutral any longer. The stakes are too high.
That’s why today …. I’m endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders to be the next president and commander-in-chief of the United States.
We need a Commander in Chief who has foresight and good judgment. ….. Who understands the need for a foreign policy which is robust in defending the safety and security of the American people. Who will not waste precious lives and money on interventionist wars of regime change. Such counterproductive wars undermine our national security and economic prosperity.
As elections continue across the country, the American people are faced with a clear choice. We can elect a president who will lead us into more interventionist wars of regime change. Or … we can elect a president who will usher in a new era of peace and prosperity.
With this clear choice in mind, today I am resigning as Vice-Chair of the DNC so that I can strongly support Bernie Sanders as the democratic nominee for President of the United States.
And now, I ask you … Stand with me …. And support Bernie Sanders.
