Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene was born in Milledgeville, Georgia, on May 27, 1974. She graduated from high school in Cumming, Georgia, and went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia. From there, she owned and managed a CrossFit gym. Though her interest in college and afterward centered on business and entrepreneurship, Greene was called to serve her country and ran for Georgia’s 14th district in the House of Representatives in 2020. She won the race in November, her only opponent dropping out of the race in September. Despite putting her ambitions for graduate school on hold, Greene knew she had made the right choice for her home state and for her career.
Greene is a strong supporter of former president Donald Trump, and Trump himself has been a strong supporter of Greene’s Republican ideals. On his former Twitter account, Trump called Greene a “Future Republican Star [sic],” saying that she “is strong on everything and never gives up — a real WINNER!” This strength is evident in her Georgia win, as she is only the second woman to be elected to the House of Representatives in Georgia. In her time in office, Greene plans to strongly oppose Socialism, as displayed in her running platform. She has true conservative ideals and plans to bring them in full force to Congress. She understands that she is a square peg in the round hole of Washington DC politics but is ready to be an outlier for change.
Greene is a member of a new wave of the Republican party, a group of conservative individuals with new and modern perspectives about the United States and Republican ideals. Her and patriots like Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley are ready to shake up politics-as-usual. Thanks to innovators like Greene, the party is no more simply about conservatism and fiscal responsibility. Rather it takes on a social responsibility as well. Her belief is that the true victims of society are white males, who represent a misunderstood and mistreated segment of society. Her aim in running for the House of Representatives is to bring the Republican party into an approachable and modern place in today’s society.
Her social conservatism is not just policy. She truly believes that to transform the American landscape, she and her colleagues must work together to establish a better tomorrow. Though Trump is out of office, it seems that Greene will be continuing these all-American ideals in his wake. She believes the power of this movement is bigger than any one person but is grateful to Trump for the ideals he brought to the oval office.
Greene’s platform does have some of the tried and true Republican ideals that absolutely help her appeal to conservatives of all generations. A big proponent of the right to bear arms, Greene has spoken out on multiple occasions to protect the second amendment. There’s no doubt about it. Greene is a true-blooded Republican woman, determined to stand up for the party and bring the ideals into the next decade.https://twitter.com/mtgreenee
