Ripple CEO and XRP Army Back Deaton to Unseat Senator Elizabeth Warren: Details

In a political showdown that has electrified the crypto community, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and the XRP army are joining forces to champion a surprising candidate, John Deaton, to Unseat Senator Elizabeth Warren, a stern crypto pessimist.

This unexpected alliance aims to challenge the stronghold of Elizabeth Warren, whose anti-crypto stance has drawn the ire of XRP enthusiasts. With their battle cry of “Draft John Deaton!” echoing through the digital landscape, a wave of excitement and anticipation builds.

As expected, the tweet attracted thousands of XRP community members, including Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse who retweeted the post to show his support for the recommendation.

Many other XRP support, including attorney Jeremy Hogan, also urged Deaton to accept the challenge.

But why Deaton and why now?

Deaton’s legal acumen and unwavering defense of XRP during the ongoing Ripple lawsuit have transformed him into a folk hero within the crypto industry.

He fearlessly calls out Warren’s alleged bias and inaction, accusing her of neglecting her oversight duty by avoiding questioning SEC Chair Gary Gensler about his connections to the embattled FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, possibly due to familial ties.

Moreover, over 600 XRP holders have pleaded with the senator for an inquiry into the SEC case, only to be met with deafening silence.

To make matters worse, Deaton highlights Warren’s support for an anti-Bitcoin bill, a draconian legislation that poses a direct threat to the very existence of crypto in the United States, according to his estimations.

While Warren’s popularity and entrenched position present a formidable challenge, Deaton’s outsider appeal, combined with the unwavering support of the crypto community, could prove to be a potent force.

Picture a David vs. Goliath showdown, where a lawyer takes on a political titan, fueled by the collective might of a passionate grassroots movement. It’s akin to Occupy Wall Street 2.0 but with cryptocurrencies at the forefront.

If this clash were to materialize, mainstream media attention would be inevitable. The high-stakes battle would thrust crypto into the national spotlight, compelling even the most skeptical observers to engage with the issue at hand.

A Deaton victory would not only unseat Warren but also send shockwaves through the political landscape, symbolizing the crypto community’s growing political clout and unwavering resolve.

Of course, challenges lie ahead. Deaton has yet to officially declare his candidacy, and the uphill battle against a seasoned politician demands not only passion but also meticulous strategizing and resource mobilization.

The stakes have never been higher. This is not merely about one Senate seat, it’s about the future of crypto in the United States. An electoral triumph for Deaton would serve as a resounding affirmation of the industry’s legitimacy and its right to flourish without unnecessary regulatory burdens.

Such a victory would embolden the crypto community to flex its political muscle even more, demanding fair representation and further solidifying its presence on the national stage.

Will Deaton answer the call? Only time will reveal the answer. However, the XRP army stands ready to rumble, and the 2024 elections may bear witness to the rise of the unlikeliest of champions.
